One Piece Many Ways: Flannel Shirt Edition

I'm super excited to be participating in the One Piece, Many Ways link-up again! (You can find my first attempt here.) This time, I chose another of my favorite remixable pieces, my jewel-toned flannel shirt! I love this thing. I love that it's jewel-toned, because I have a thing for those, but also the colors make it appropriate for spring and summer, while the fact that it's flannel make it appropriate for fall and winter, so it can be worn year-round. 

The first two outfits are from previous posts (found here and here), but I've worn it so many other ways that haven't made it onto the blog yet, plus I found a few new ways to wear it while playing around in my closet for this challenge! It is so versatile, and definitely a closet staple for me. 

flannel shirt/ Old Navy | necklace/ Caroline G. | white tee and shorts/ Gap | sandals/ Payless

I think this is a perfect end of summer casual outfit. I love pattern mixing, but sometimes you just have to tone it down or break it up a bit, and I think the plain white tee works really well for that here.

sweater/ thrifted | jeans/ Old Navy | boots/ Kohl's
This, on the other hand, is totally a late fall/winter outfit. And also one of my all-time favorite outfits. I think wearing it under a sweater that is also jewel-toned really gives the whole outfit a put-together feel (though it could just be me). 

vest/ JC Penney | jeans and flats/ Target
Another very fall outfit. A simple layer like a military vest gives it just the right touch, and while usually I'm a little wary of wearing two items that both have collars together, I think it works here. Also, meet my new cognac flats. I love them. They say hi.

dress and flats/ Target
I think this would be a cute casual date night outfit out with the hubs. Also, can you tell I like pairing this with fuscia yet? I love that the flannel really dresses down what would otherwise be a fairly dressy dress.

boots/ Kohl's
And because I couldn't decide if I liked it better with flats or boots, I'm including it both ways so you can help me decide. I'm torn. I love dresses with boots, but I also really like how it looks with the flats. DECISIONS DECISIONS.

capris/ Post Exchange | flats/ Target
And for yet another very-fall outfit, I paired it with my olive cargo capris and leopard flats. It's simple, but I really like how it looks. Also, can we just take a second to acknowledge that my hair is actually (almost) behaving itself in this picture? Because it wasn't in this one:

No, that is not me trying to look sexy. That is me flipping my hair out of my face right as the self-timer went off. I feel like I should audition for an Herbal Essences commercial now. 

Anyway, there you have it! This might be my all-time favorite piece of clothing, and I'm really happy with all of the looks I've made with it. Can't wait to go check out all the other remixes in the link-up, maybe I'll find even more ideas for this shirt! You can check them out, too, right here:



  1. What an awesome shirt! It's much more versatile than I would have thought, and the colors are really fabulous!

  2. This post totally justifies my need for a flannel shirt. I love all the ways you've worn it and it gives me so many ideas for whenever I find one I like! The one where you layered it under your sweater and over your dress are my favorite. Great job!

  3. I love it over the dress!! I'm looking forward to some cooler weather, so I can style my plaid shirts, too! Great job, Kim!

  4. Thank you! Hooray for cooler weather (and plaid shirts)!

  5. Haha you should definitely get one. I'm excited to see what you come up with once you find one! Thanks! But with the flats or the boots? This is important! ;)

  6. Thank you! I was surprised by its versatility, too, but it has definitely earned its place in my closet!

  7. I love it with the vest!! Great job with all the outfits!

  8. Honestly this is a tough one. You know I adore boots, but I kind of like it with flats more. I think the color of the flats is what I like. If it were a cognac or tan pair of boots I'd have to go with the boots.

  9. I'm thinking I agree with you. That's why I need cognac boots like yours! ;)

  10. I really like the one with the plaid tided with the fustian skirt. Cute!

  11. Cute top! Love it most paired with floral shorts :)

    Visiting from the linkup. Would you fancy following each other on GFC or other social networks? I'd love to keep up with your posts. Just let me know if you're interested.


  12. Such a great post! I like the shirt tied over the dress. So cute!

  14. Thanks so much, and thanks for stopping by!

  15. Thanks, Ginny! Definitely wearing that one for our date night in a couple weeks. :)

  16. I love when you pair this with magenta (dress and sweater). Such a fun top to work with!

  17. You are totally rocking that flannel! I like that you mixed it with prints a few times - it looks so fun with those floral shorts!

  18. You make a flannel look so stylish!!! The colours in this shirt are gorgeous. All these pairings compliment the shirt so well

  19. Thank you! And thanks for stopping by! :)
