Unless you’re living in caves, you would already know flannel wears are going to headline this fall- Again! While women are born fashion enthusiasts, men fall short in this department and often end up looking complete style-doofus. If you are still untouched with the ultimate charm of cool flannel shirts but wants to try them anyway this season, here are some do’s and don’ts.
Play with Different Colours
Thanks to their multiple colour combinations, flannel shirts, to a large extent, synonyms style and boldness. So when it comes to buy a cool flannel shirt for yourself, don’t shy away from the popping and eye-catchy colour variations. Try new varieties top manufacturers are offering them in heaps. Buy varieties even when they are that’s not so me… Pairing with the right bottoms and accessories, you can easily pull off a charming and confident look.
Keep It Neat When Uncomfortable
Some of us have got too comfortable with the round neck-tees that wearing something different in a normal setup might make you look odd and ‘out of context’, which mirrors well in your overall attitude and lack of confidence. So if you’re just migrating to the flannel world, keep things simple. Look for cool mens shirts of plain and subtle varieties. Feeling confidence is your top priority here.
Jeans or Chinos
Jeans and Chinos both looks good with flannel shirts but which one should you pick depends on your mood, personality and occasion. If you’re looking for a cool and casual look, nothing beats the classic snug-fit blue denim bottom. Want a hot, rugged, machismo look? (Well, of course you do!) Opt for ripped jeans. And if the setting is formal or you want that suave-ish style, chinos would work wonders.
Layering or No?
If not you know a thing or two about layering (i.e. complementing colour combinations, patterns and so on), leave this territory untouched. Otherwise layer with plain-simple tees or sweaters. Graphic rich tees can also be the great choice; we’ve seen celebrities pull off that look beyond perfection. And we all know, you’re no less than a celebrity yourself; are you?
Sneakers or Leather Shoes
Many self-claimed ‘fashion gurus’ yep, they apparently exist won’t like it, but we’re going to say anyway- leather shoes are far better option with cool flannel shirts than sneakers or any casual shoes for that matter. They are simple looking, yet speak volume of style, masculinity and elegance. So invest in a good pair of leather shoes light, dark- any variation would do.
While full-sleeve flannel shirts have always been popular and favourite among men, this season we’re seeing a slight change. Half-sleeve cool mens shirts have become just as appealing choice. Just other day, we saw Ryan Gosling sport these causal but classic shirts at the airport; and we all know, we it comes to style, Kim K can fall into ditch, not Ryan. Never!
