Fall and winter means changing leaves, chilly weather, pumpkin patches, and of course flannels. Walking around campus during these seasons is the perfect time to see all the different types of flannels, and every single way to style them. Flannel is “so pervasive in our culture because it’s comfortable, warm and stylish with that ‘work hard, play hard’ attitude we all embrace,” say the writers for Outdoor Research. Flannels are a must have item of clothing for students at the University of Georgia because of their ease, warmth, and style. Flannels come in all kinds of colors, patterns, and sizes to fit and flatter every type of person. Flannel “has come a long way since its humble beginnings and is now found everywhere from shirts and skirts to bedding and pajamas,” Brock Cardiner, writer for HighSnobiety, says. The trick is figuring out which type of flannel best suites you.
Have you ever looked at yourself in a mirror after getting dressed up only to find yourself deeply frustrated? My clothes don’t fit me you thought. You were filled with worry, maybe even shame, because you realized you can no longer keep up with the shapes and sizes in your own closet - or worse - on the racks in the stores.
If you relate to this, fret not! This problem does not always mean that you have gained or lost weight - sometimes, it just means you have changed in shape or there are new fashions that do not exactly flatter you.
“You have to understand what’s for you and what’s not for you,” says Kayla
Hutchinson, the public relations chair of For Loving Yourself (FLY) and a sophomore health promotions and public relations major from Atlanta. Finding your fit is the art of understanding and accepting your body type so that you can find what looks best on you and makes you feel your best. A few campus fashionistas have shared uncommon knowledge on how to make this possible.
