Ever since Marc Jacobs sent checked-up looks down the runway for Perry Ellis in 1992, flannel has been lifted from the lumberjacks and injected into mainstream culture. At the time, the decision to go grunge was a shock to the entire fashion world. Now, we can’t imagine fall without our plaids!
The typical deep red and blue hues found in flannel’s plaid designs make for an ubiquitous post-summer palette, as noted on celebs like Megan Fox and Kate Moss. Go grunge like Jacobs with perfectly slouchy and imperfectly ripped boyfriend jeans, or dress it up with riding boots and skinny jeans.
