Our third POW (Piece of the Week) is the L.L. Bean Slightly Fitted Scotch Plaid Shirt in Deep Evergreen Tartan! This was a fun one. In three weeks, we took this comfortable plaid flannel and added faux fur, a geek tee, a lace skirt, pearls, a black jacket, ripped jeans, and a nice cardigan--going from career to casual to special occasion. I proved myself wrong by styling a flannel shirt into such a rage. Just goes to show how versatile any garment can be with the right styling!
So, let's see what I did!
Manic Flannel Monday: For a cozy yet professional look, take one casual flannel and add lots of professional pieces.
