When you think of a women's plaid flannel shirt, does grunge music come to mind? Bands like Pearl Jam? If so, it’s time to rethink your fashion references. A well-made flannel shirt for women is a weekend staple, but it’s just as at home in the office or at a restaurant.

If you're stuck on how to wear a flannel, the options are fairly endless as we transition from summer to fall.

Pair a bright flannel shirt with your favorite jeans and a plain t-shirt by tying it around your waist. Or grab a plaid tunic and wear it over leggings, with booties. If you’re looking for a more sleek vibe, tuck your top into a fitted pencil skirt and pair it with heels. If you’re feeling particularly brave, mix patterns by wearing your plaid with textured pants. And one of our go-to looks for those challenging days, when it’s not quite cold enough for a coat, is wearing a thin, puffy vest over your shirt.

And if all else fails, just throw on a flannel and pull up a pair of knee-high boots for an easy fall uniform.

With so many options on the market, it can be hard to find the perfect flannel. These are 10 of our favorite flannel shirts for women for fall 2018.
