Rihanna in her flandana. Even better that it rhymes.
Here at InStyle, we love a good fashion portmanteau. From the jegging (jeans/legging) to the skort (skirt/shorts) there's alway a hybrid garment with a catchy name waiting to be created.
And our favourite new invention of late has to be the flandana. No, this isn't a flannel crossed with a, with a… something, but a fleece and bandana in one! Worn over the lower half of the face to protect your chin from frostbite, the flandana is fast become's fashion's latest must-have accessory thanks to record-breaking below-freezing temperatures in New York and because well, Rihanna says it is.
Made from the classic bandana but with a snugly fleece lining, this is definitely something we could do with on those brisk early morning winter walks to work. And at only £30, we reckon they're a bit of a bargain too.
