I have the type of relationship with my flannel shirt that you might have with your UGG boots. No matter the season, I'm always finding an excuse to wear mine. It's soft, as comfortable as PJs, and can be styled up or down — to wear out, or to lounge around the house. While oversize plaids have strong ties to the '90s, and some of the best flannel outfits did, in fact, come from that time — still recreated to this day — there are movie moments through the years that prove the trend's staying power, too.
Tai wears her flannel tied around the waist with a biker short workout set in Clueless. Hallie and Annie rock their checked throwovers with bandana neck-ties for the end-of-summer family hiking trip in The Parent Trap. There are lesser known flannel movie moments, of course, that have probably slipped your mind. You'll be surprised to find how enthusiastic you are about creating an outfit around your plaid shirt once you reminisce about all the screen style moments ahead.
