High School Trendspotting: Flannel Shirts

Sorry about having two trend spotting posts in a row. I just could not refrain from writing about this one any longer.
It all started about 3 weeks ago when we all went camping. Tartan flannel shirts were all the rage, especially blue. Now, we're back in the real world and this camping trend has transformed into a full-blown fashion trend. I have to admit, flannel shirts are totally comfy don't get me wrong, but I don't get why people are opting for these pajama-type tops (hence the only clue I could think of for this FT) over more stylish options? I liked wearing mine whilst camping, but it's just not my thing to go out looking less than well put-together.

I couldn't find a nice enough picture of an actual flannel shirt, so I decided to go with this picture sample of all the different colours flannel comes in. I noticed there's no dark blue (the colour that everyone's wearing), but the red/black is second most popular. Black/pink looks pretty hot, too. Somehow I don't think this FT is here to stay for very long, so don't too excited. I mainly just wanted to express my confusion. Lol.
My verdict: save it for the campsite.
Clue for next FT post: business as usual...

Flannel shirts have been trendy for a while now. I saw people wear them last year at this time too.
