Taylor Swift is releasing her 10th studio album, “Midnights,” in just under a month, and I’m one of the millions of people who are highly anticipating its arrival. That said, I’m wildly invested in all of the singer’s recent TikTok videos in which she’s announcing track names, as well as all of the fan theories and speculation surrounding the album. With all of the buzz around her upcoming album, the last thing I expected was to uncover something epic about her ninth album, “Evermore.” As dutiful fans of the singer might recall, she wears an orange-and-black plaid single-breasted coat on the cover, photographed from behind with her hair in a lovely french braid. Her exact coat was a Stella McCartney design, which retailed for a whopping $2,875.
Ready for your jaw to drop? Old Navy is selling a flannel that looks like an affordable dupe for Swift’s plaid jacket. Dubbed the Long-Sleeve Plaid Flannel Boyfriend Tunic Shirt ($36, originally $40), it’s unsurprisingly accumulated a near-perfect five-star rating, so I had to put it to the test. Check out my honest thoughts on the shirt ahead.
What I Like About Old Navy’s Plaid Flannel Boyfriend Tunic Shirt
I’m not usually a flannel wearer, but I make exceptions for Swift. What I like about this design is, for starters, the orange-and-black plaid. It couldn’t be more perfect for fall — I’m legitimately listening to “All Too Well (Sad Girl Autumn Version)” as I write this. I’m wearing it with a pair of black leggings and slippers (#WFHLife), but I can also see myself wearing it with jeans and boots this fall. Teamed with the fact that it’s really soft should make it a serious contender for your next fall shopping haul.
What’s Worth Noting
The Old Navy Plaid Flannel Boyfriend Tunic Shirt has rave reviews on the brand’s website, but there are a few shoppers who noted that it runs big. I found it to be fitted in the sleeves and slightly oversize in the body, but I wasn’t particularly surprised since the brand describes it as having a “relaxed fit.” In my experience, it’s perfect because it’s not too big and not too small.
Who Is Old Navy’s Plaid Flannel Boyfriend Tunic Shirt Best For?
This shirt is best for just about anybody who appreciates the layering benefits of a flannel, especially during the fall. It’s also an obvious must have for Taylor Swift-lovers since it looks so similar to the silhouette she wears on the cover of “Evermore.”
- The plaid shirt comes in a total of nine different colorways.
- It’s made of 100 percent cotton.
- It’s available in sizes XS-2X.
- To keep it in tip-top shape, it’s advised that you machine-wash cold on a gentle cycle and hang it to dry.
