Fabulous Find of the Week: Charlotte Russe Flannel Shirt

1 Comment

Confession time: I love flannel, and would probably wear it year-round if I didn’t live in the ridiculously hot and humid state of Florida. Flannel shirts are just so soft and cozy – it almost feels like you’re wearing pajamas out in public. (Almost.) So for this week’s Fabulous Find, I picked a lightweight flannel shirt that’s perfect for the summer-to-fall transition.

This plaid Charlotte Russe button-up can be worn now with shorts and skirts, then layered under sweaters and coats once the weather gets colder. The best part? It costs less than $18! Simply scroll down to check it out, as well as three ways to wear a flannel shirt in early fall:

Would You Wear… Chelsea Boots?

It’s no secret that we are overly excited about the prospect of fall trends. One of the most coveted pieces on our must-have list is the Chelsea boot. The only way to describe this fashionable footwear is “borrowed from the boys meets NYC fashion scene.” If that doesn’t sell you on it, we don’t know what will.

Chelsea boots have been worn in men’s fashion for decades, but haven’t permeated women’s wardrobes until recently. This style of ankle boot has a 0-2 inch heel and is traditionally characterized by its elastic sides. However, over time people have been referring to sleek ankle booties minus the elastic as Chelsea boots, too. Stretchy or not, these slim shoes look phenomenal with everything from tight jeans to sleek skirts.

Way back in April, it was announced that Alexander Wang would be collaborating with H&M, and now we have a first look at the collection.

Details on the size of the collection and prices are still hush-hush, but we do know that Alexander Wang for H&M includes men’s and women’s clothing and accessories. If the above images are any indication, it looks like this fast fashion collection perfectly captures Wang’s signature sporty aesthetic.

The collab will launch online and at 250 H&M stores worldwide on November 6, 2014. However, we suspect that the full lookbook to be released very soon!
