Staying stylish all the time can be exhausting. After a week of dressing up for work, it can be a challenge to dress up all over again when going out. While right now you think that this is a part of your life, it doesn’t have to be. No, it’s not too good to be true. It’s entirely possible if you do it right. This guide is about dressing comfortably and still looking great.
Wear Those Pajama Pants
It sounds too good to be true, wearing your pajama pants and looking stylish? The truth is it is entirely possible to look good while feeling like you’re about to go to bed. A matte gray pair of pajama pants paired with a black top can be comfortable and look great!
The key to finding a good pair of daytime pajamas is finding a neutral color in a comfortable material. A good example is a pair of black silk pants, perfect for going to bed or out with friends.
Don’t Get Clothes That are Too Tight
It sounds simple, but in reality, it’s easy to fall in love with clothes that may be just a little too tight. Tight clothes may make you look good, but don’t sacrifice your comfort. Finding clothes that are loose but well fitted will make you look better and more comfortable.
We are all partial to different types of materials; the key to being comfortable and looking good is to find one that you really like. While every material has pros and cons, some are significantly more comfortable than others. Linens, for example, can keep you cool in the summer while also looking great. If linens aren’t your speed, try other cozy materials like silk or knitwear.
Another thing that sounds silly but can be a lifesaver. The sit test is a must when you are trying on clothes. If you’re concerned about comfort, you should always be comfortable, whether you are sitting, standing, or walking around. A trap that people often fall into is buying something that fits well when looking in a mirror but not when doing anything else. When trying on your clothes, make sure that they ALWAYS fit well.
Wear Comfortable Shoes
If you’re somebody that wears heels all the time, you don’t have to. With all of the other things you have to think about, maybe cross worrying about your heels off the list. Comfortable shoes can still be super fashionable and won’t hurt your feet nearly as much. Outdoor slippers or a pair of low tops are two options that look and feel fantastic.
Get Rid of Buttons
It is a lot of work to button yourself up into a shirt. That was sarcastic, but only a little bit. You’re more likely to wear things that are easy for you to wear, so say goodbye to all the unnecessary bells and whistles in your wardrobe. Get rid of your buttons, hooks, and snaps; with all the fabulous dresses, rompers, and stretchy fabrics out there, you can find more comfortable options.
Look Into One-Pieces
A one-piece offers a lot of perks that make them both comfortable and stylish. For one thing, it’s an outfit in just one piece of clothing. Take out the guesswork of picking a good outfit in the morning and just throw on a romper or jumpsuit.
Hopefully, this guide has given you the tips and tricks that you need to dress comfortably and still look great. You shouldn’t have to suffer to look your best, and it’s possible to feel as good as you look. Next time you go clothes shopping, remember this article and stop suffering for your looks.
