I'm a big flannel fan. It's extremely comfortable, especially for someone who always runs cold, and I always enjoy a fabric that can also be purchased in sheets. PSA: I'm all about the flannel sheets. Throughout my time in highschool at a New England boarding school, we had Flannel Fridays, where everyone was encouraged to don a flannel article of clothing. Then going to school in Maine, I got to know flannel even better as pretty much everyone wears it daily and it's frickin' cold up there. Plus it's a rugged look that I love and is just easy to throw on with a pair of skinny jeans and call it an outfit.

I found this shirt a few weeks ago and knew it would become a fall staple for me. I love all of Equipment blouses because they are so soft and always flattering. This one is great because although it's a plaid print and has a flannel-feel to it, it's actually silk so it can be just easily dressed up with a chunky necklace and worn when the weather isn't quite cold enough to warrant a real flannel. This exact one is sold out unfortunately but I found a very similar one here.
