Why You Need a Flannel Dress in Your Wardrobe

I have vehemently turned my nose up to the likes of flannel fabric and plaid prints all my life. I don’t really have a good reason for this other than I think it has to do with where I grew up. Flannel and plaid are pretty common in my small hometown in Wisconsin…almost everyone wears them. And maybe subconsciously, I wanted to be “different.” Good grief was that silly of me! I have I been missing out!

The reason why flannel is so popular where I’m from is because it is COLD. REALLY, REALLY COLD. And you know what kind of fabric is cozy and warm? Flannel.

I took baby steps, a couple of years ago I bought my first plaid top and fell in love. Now, I decided it was time to go all in…flannel AND plaid. Come to think of it, though…have you ever seen flannel not be plaid? I don’t think I have…

This particular flannel dress is from my friends at Tatyana Boutique. If you’ve been following along for a while, you’ll know this isn’t the first time I’ve featured them. My favorite skirt of all time is made by Tatyana Boutique. (I’ve had that skirt for almost 6 years now – wear it constantly, and it still looks new!) Tatyana Boutique specializes in pin-up, vintage-inspired dresses and accessories. They’re a US-based company too. (Love that!)

The dress I’m wearing is their Miranda dress. It runs a little big…I sized down an entire size (so double-check the size chart before you order). It is so unbelievably soft and comfortable. My husband keeps touching it and remarking how soft it is “like one of grandpa’s shirts.” I think he’s trying to hint that he wants his own flannel shirt…

Best of all though…it has POCKETS. Which came in really handy the day we took these photos. It was weirdly warm in Moscow for a few days, all of our snow was melting, and I didn’t need to wear a parka and 6 layers when I would leave home. So, I didn’t look at the forecast when I ventured out this day….and boy was that a bad idea. It was in the single digits (Fahrenheit) and super windy. We took these photos in about 30 seconds flat and then ducked into the nearest restaurant for a couple pots of tea! (Sorry, that’s why they’re not the most exciting photos ever.)

This dress did a great job of keeping me warm, even on this chilly, winter day. This is the kind of dress too that’s easy to dress up or down. It works well with heels but would look equally darling with boots or flats. I’m a flannel/plaid convert for life now!

I’m curious what are your thoughts on flannel? Do you wear it? Let me know in the comments!

    That’s such a cute dress! I think the reason why I don’t have any plaid in my wardrobe is that flannel isn’t really needed here with the warmer temperatures! It would be a great fabric for the cold though, and I’ll always love a dress with pockets 🙂

    Hope that you are having a nice weekend 🙂 We spent yesterday bayside celebrating Australia day – despite the heat! Our heatwave continues!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Ah yes, that does make sense. And thank you so much! I hope you had a great time celebrating Australia day!

    What an adorable look! Flannel really is so warm and stylish. I love how yo u styled yours with a belt.

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you so much, Courtney!

  5. We are birds of a feather. It’s only since blogging that I bought some flannel anything. And considering where I live…that was silly. But at least I’ve learned and have some now!
    Love this dress, Lindsey!!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Haha! I’m so glad it isn’t just me! And thank you so much, Jodie!

  6. I bought this dress a couple years ago on one of my work trips to Vegas. I love visiting Tatyana’s store there when I go! It is the COZIEST! It also looks cute with boots – I wear it all winter long with my brown lace up boots and now my new knee length boots.

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      I would love to be able to visit their physical store! I am so glad you love this dress too. And I can picture the exact brown lace-up boots you’re talking about, and I absolutely want a pair to go with this dress now. Haha.
