Is it a shirt? Is it a lumberjacket? Answer is, this checked button-down flannel in all-American red, white and blue can be anything in a sartorial sense you want.

Wear it open, overcoat-style atop a cropped tee and shorts, a la this model at the Tommy Hilfiger Autumn/Winter 2017 runway show in London last week. Roll the sleeves up for a more casual look, down if you mean business.

(This model’s runway version had appropriate levels of rock performance bling: spike-studded cuffs. If you like, get bedazzling and pimp your own ride.)

Wrap it around your waist to belt up a strappy shift dress with heels in high summer. Or follow model Gie Gie’s lead below and go classic, teaming it as just a regular button-down over jeans, leaving just one side tucked as per the styling trend of several seasons past.

You can shop the limited edition, 100 percent cotton Tommy Hilfiger x Gigi Hadid flannel at Tommy Hilfiger stores in Sydney (Westfield Sydney, Westfield Parramatta), Melbourne (Chadstone and Melbourne Central), Adelaide (Burnside Village) and Queensland (Pacific Fair), with limited stock also available online at David Jones and MYER.
