About two years ago I wore flannels layered over vintage band tees on a daily basis. Add an Alabama University beanie to top off this weird "hipster-grunge-chic" thing I thought I had going on (key word thought) and you have Rima at eighteen years old. I honestly don't think I've touched a flannel since then...that is until today. Bought this cute little black and white plaid at forever 21 after realizing it's ALL how you style it. You can completely avoid looking like a little grunge kid by keeping the rest of your look simple. A pair of black skinnies, some strappy heeled sandals and easy bedhead are all you need to transform a truck driver staple into a cool-girl essential.
