True confession: I'm picky when it comes to flannel shirts. As a Vermont-born-New Hampshire-raised gal it's safe to say flannels were a staple of my fall and winter wardrobe. I've tried all types of flannel shirts that come from retailers like L.L. Bean (based in Maine!), prior boyfriends' closets, and tons of small New England stores, and let me tell you: there is a vast difference in quality, comfort, and price depending on where you get them. While I don't normally shop retail for flannels, Old Navy's quality has impressed me this past year and, admittedly, I have a thing for red flannel shirts. So when I saw this Oversized Plaid Flannel Boyfriend Tunic Shirt for Women ($37) I thought "why not? I can always return it." Luckily, no returns will be necessary - I'm impressed!
I ordered the gray and red plaid flannel (which is no longer available, but there are tons of other colors to choose from!). It's 100 percent cotton and in return, 100 percent comfortable. The flannel's medium thickness is perfect for lounging around the house. I wear mine all the time working from home alongside this Old Navy cardigan sweater and I am always perfectly cozy and warm. As an experienced flannel wearer, I can assure you the quality of this flannel is amazing for its price (most flannels go for $50 and more!). The only downfall is its sizing, I ordered a large, and for being marketed as "oversized" this flannel fits me perfectly. (I normally wear a small or medium for reference). Definitely size up if you choose to order one for yourself! Check out all the colors this oversized flannel comes in ahead.
