Flannel: A love story


Men on MV know how to wear a flannel.

1. Meet a boy with a perfectly broken-in flannel shirt.

2. Fall in love.

3. Fall out of love (with the boy, not the flannel).

4. Wait a year.

5. Dig out the flannel from the back of the closet. Inhale the scent of last autumn's campfire and fall in love all over again. With the shirt or the boy? Maybe both.

Noava's look goes from summer to fall with the addition of a well-loved flannel.

But seriously, a flannel can be your best friend, especially these days with the '90s grunge look coming back around. (Who would have guessed it would ever be ok to be seen in public with a flannel button-down tied around your waist again?) As temperatures drop, you need this important layer for cool mornings and evenings. Your flannel is a shirt, a jacket, and a Vineyard off-season staple. Pair it with your favorite t-shirt and a pair of jeans and head out the door. Go on. Fashion can be cozy, too, and autumn is the perfect time for that.

Paired with a tank and some high-waisted skinny jeans and some flip-flops, Sabra's flannel provides just enough warmth for a cool September morning on the Island.
