Ladies and gentlemen, it’s flannel season! Store those polos away in the closet until it’s beach season again. In your house, in the school hallways, you’ll be comfortable and colorful in a spacious, checkered shirt. There are plenty of examples of it in 20-year-old sitcoms, but flannel is more all-American than decade specific. Its perennial nature is the reason I advise adding it to your wardrobe before the cold weather hits. You could shop around for the cheapest options, but in this climate why not cuddle up on your couch and surf Amazon? Look! I’ll even give you a boost. Here are my top three favorite Amazon flannels for the ladies and the gents.
Weatherproof makes heavy, cozy shirts in wild, rustic colors. What more could a classic man want? These cotton flannel shirts start at $17 and some sizes include free returns just in case. If you loved Stranger Things, classic vintage flannel is the way to go! (You should also read this article.)
With thinner sleeves for the warmer days of fall, this look is a trendy and street ready look, especially if you’re under 35. If vintage flannel is to bulky or backwoodsy for you, this long sleeve tee reinvents the fabric with a slimming, contemporary edge.
In all honesty, this style is pretty simple. The element that raises it above the rest is color. Their designs mix in a lively variety of colors. Geometric patterns that pop will attract the right attention and help you diversify your wardrobe a bit. True colors, man!
This is another choice motivated by flannel color variety. A diverse palette of flannels shades will help this style from becoming redundant. This lightweight shirt is designed to compliment any size from petite to plus.
You don’t have to wear your flannel like an oversized poncho. This isn’t your boyfriend’s flannel! I love this style because it sits on the body like a mini. Dresses look far more stylish than a saggy shirt. A mini flannel is great for some semi-formal occasion like Sunday brunch.

It has a sleek, slim fit and the sleeves are equipped with button flaps so it’s easy to roll them up. Dare I say, these Amazon flannels put the fun in functional?— Julie Grossman
