On Trend: Flannel Is a Hit in LoDo and on Campus

Flannel is a fall fashion staple, and this week we have spotted the seventeenth-century textile all over the Denver streets. The fabric once worn by farmers, railroad workers and grunge rockers like Nirvana and Pearl Jam in the '90s remains on trend today. Over the years, flannel has transitioned from being a workman's shirt, built to endure the natural elements, to becoming go-to autumn piece for any Colorado fashionista. Flannel is versatile, durable and warm. Read on to learn how locals rock their flannel and why they like it so much.
