H&M's 90s Grunge Flannel Shirts

Our first choice is H&M’s cotton flannel shirt for women. The product is true to its size and design, and not only that, but the shirt is also the most authentic-looking 90s flannel.

I had fun styling this shirt with a pair of baggy, ripped jeans and a fitted, slim black top underneath. I’m a fan of accessorizing with silver, however, gold would work as well.

  • Price: £19.99
  • Available sizes: XS – S – M – L – XL – XXL
  • Available colors: Dark Blue – Red – Black – Turquoise & White

Abercrombie & Fitch: Men’s Oversized Flannel

This Abercrombie & Fitch flannel shirt for men is one of my personal favorites, so it had to make the cut. The colorful design especially is as vibrant as it is sleek-looking.

Additionally, the material is soft and it’s a button-up too, meaning, you can style it in many various ways. It also has flap-closure pockets to keep your personal items in.

  • Price: $70
  • Available sizes: XS – S – M – L – XL – XXL
  • Available colors: Burgundy Plaid – Black Plaid

AllSaints Burnside Checkered Jacket for Men

Large-checkered, bold plaid patterns look absolutely stunning on all men. Allsaints offers men a beautiful, baggy, Litho checked jacket that’ll complete your 90s grunge look.

Additionally, the shirt is designed with twin chest pockets and a pressed collar as a plus. The hem, unlike the other options here for men, is straight. That makes the shirt great for fitted white tops.

  • Price: $319.00
  • Available sizes: XS – L – XL – XXL
  • Available colors: Ecru/Black

Asos 90s Grungy Flannel Shirts

I don’t know about you, but Asos probably has the best collection of 90s flannel shirts out there. This black grunge flannel, in particular, is not just grungy, but is suitable for all styles.

To style it, I had to pick between a short-sleeved white shirt and another black one. Any pair of jeans will do. Skip the belt and voila: you now look both fly and stylish.

Gap Women’s Oversized Plaid Flannel

I had to give a Gap option for women too and no flannel shirt caught my eye more than this beautiful black and cream checkered item. Not only does it come with a tough-looking pointed collar, it also has a stylish shirttail hem with a split.

Made from 100% cotton, this flannel shirt is breathable and oversized as well. Because of its neutral colors, this item can be styled with most outfits you have. That said, black jeans and a cream-white top won’t go wrong.

  • Available sizes: XXS – XS – S – M – L – XL – XXL
  • Available colors: Black – Blue – Brown – Camel Brown – Green – Pink – Red

90s fashion flannel: BOSS Men’s Checkered-Print Cotton Flannel

I, personally, love this BOSS flannel shirt because of how bold the colors are as well as how neat the design is. This clothing item may work better for slim-figured men with tall or short builds.

Due to the classic print and one-side open pocket, this shirt is pretty easy to style too. Throw a pair of black or dark blue jeans on in addition to a solid, white tee, and you’ll be the talk of the hangout with an amazing 90s grunge flannel outfit.

  • Available sizes: S – M – L – XL – XXL – XXXL
