If you're preparing to sip your first pumpkin spice latte of the season, don't forget to celebrate the return of another fall favorite: flannel. While the woven fabric might evoke images of rustic scenery, crunchy leaves, and durable boots, it also lends itself to plenty of fashion-focused outfits—from stylish shackets to tartan tops.

Whether or not you'll find yourself perusing a pumpkin patch anytime soon, refresh your closet with these fall-ready flannels.

Checkered, cozy style staples? Check! Style your standard flannel shirt with a pair of jeans and a crop top or even your favorite band T-shirt for a casual cold weather look.

L.L. Bean is practically synonymous with the traditional flannel look, and the Maine-based brand sells a range of rugged styles such as the highly-rated Women's Scotch Plaid Flannel Shirt, Relaxed Zip Hoodie. The tartan take on a cozy sweatshirt has 4.6 stars out of over 3,200 reviews. "This flannel hoodie is sooooo soft!" one reviewer raves. "Unlike others, however, it is nice and lightweight while also very warm." Shop it in women's sizes XS to 3X, including petite and tall options.

As far as trends go, colorblocking is hardly the new kid on the block. But thanks to its unexpected blend of fabrics and colors, the look remains anything but boring. Urban Outfitters has plenty of plaid options, including colorblocked and patchworked pieces such as the BDG Robbie Flannel Spliced Button Down Shirt. It's available in four colorful patchwork designs, each of which add a pop of pattern and personality to any laidback look. Shop the style in women's sizes XS to XL.

No need to stop at mixing and matching plaids, however. The Ex Plaid Shirt from Free People fuses a denim jacket with a flannel shirt. The result? A cozy style with a collar, gold buttons, and two spacious pockets. Shop it in women's sizes XS to L in blue.

While plaid tops are often top of mind when we think flannel, the style doesn't have to stop there. If you love the look of a flannel shirt tied around your waist, take it one step further with a chic flannel dress. Consider the Scotch Plaid Flannel Dress from L.L. Bean, which comes in three types of plaid in women's sizes XS to XL.

Shackets—a combination of a shirt and a jacket—are a trendy take on fall outerwear. For a look designed for layering, consider a plaid shacket like Madewell's Boiled Wool Shirt-Jacket in Plaid. It's available in light blue in women's sizes XXS to XXL. Thanks to footwear and accessories---think everything from leather knee-high boots to Vans and Timberlands---it works with a wide range of looks.

For a twill jacket that resembles a cozy flannel, consider the zippered Relaxed Fit Plaid Overshirt at H&M. Despite the casual silhouette, it can be easily elevated for a more polished fall look with tailored chinos and a white button-up shirt. It comes in a black and yellow plaid in men's sizes XS to 3XL.

From blazers to baggy cargo pants, oversized looks are having a moment. Pair an oversized flannel with a crop top to balance out the bagginess, or wear it buttoned up with a beanie and boots when there's a fall chill in the air.

Consider the Urban Renewal Remade Overdyed Flannel Shirt from Urban Outfitters for an relaxed fit style that the brand says is "upcycled" from "unique vintage and deadstock items found around the world." Shop it in women's sizes small/medium and medium/large in four colors, although the dye of each piece is unique.
