The renowned designer Vera Wang once said a woman is sexier when she is comfortable in her own clothes. This is quite relevant not only for women but also for men. When you’re comfortable with what you wear, nothing can compare to the satisfaction you feel.
As one of the basic necessities of a human being, clothes are dependent on a person’s preferences. But with celebrities influencing fashion trends, comfort is sometimes set aside. As a result, the clothes which look good don’t necessarily make you feel comfortable.
A white cotton dress, for example, is simple yet elegant. It gives you a light, comfortable fit that empowers you to move as you wish without any hindrances. When an outfit hangs the right way and makes you feel confident, your mood is greatly elevated.
Comfort is all about the fabric, fit, and versatility of the garment you wear. Having these elements in your wardrobe will help you exude confidence all the time.
Here are five ways to wear comfort in your everyday style.
1. Turn your flaws into perfection.
Most people spend so much time shopping for what they can wear. But in reality, no one can hold you back from wearing whatever you want. Remember, you control what you wear and there is no need to hide your flaws.
Why not remove those limitations and just be who you are? Comfort begins when you’re comfortable with your own skin. Being too conscious of your flaws will only restrict your fashion expression.
Fashion is always changing. What is on trend today will later become a thing of the past. Allow your clothes to reflect who you are as a person because there’s more to you than meets the eye.
2. Go for breathable fabrics.
Cotton is a breathable fabric made from a natural fiber which controls moisture. This type of fabric transmits moisture away from the body. It also acts like a towel to absorb and prevent perspiration from accumulating on the skin.
Cotton is usually soft and stretchable which makes it quite comfortable to wear.
3. Make streetwear your new best friend.
Streetwear clothing is a casual style that combines chic runway with the ease and comfort of everyday fashion. Anybody can integrate a touch of streetwear into their wardrobe.
With a few of the following pieces, you can create your own streetwear style.
- Plain White Tee – A simple white tee can go along with any outfit. It’s a fashion basic when it comes to effortless style. The perfect plain white tee should have a comfortably loose fit. This way, you can easily wear it with any kind of pants or skirt.
- Denim Jacket – A denim jacket matches everything. The perfect denim jacket can turn any simple outfit into something stylish. If you want to turn heads, a denim jacket with patches will do the trick.
- Sweatpants – On mornings you’re too tired to get dressed, sweatpants will let you leave the house in style. Streetwear sweatpants narrowed towards the bottom make for a fitted look. This makes them more stylish and functional while keeping you comfortable.
For an effortless casual outfit, toss your denim jacket on with your plain white tee and sweatpants.
4. Focus on fit rather than size.
Don’t focus too much on the size of the clothes you wear, but rather on how you feel when you wear them. An outfit may have the right size you usually look for but it’s useless if you’re not comfortable in it.
Always go for comfort. It doesn’t have to be the bigger size than necessary. Your clothes should skim but not cling to your body in an uneasy manner.
5. Embrace your flats and sneakers.
Gone are the days when high heels were the only option for stylish footwear. Stilettos do look great but they don’t do well on your feet. If heels are not your thing, there’s no reason why you have to suffer by wearing them the whole day.
With today’s fashion, flats and sneakers can make you look stylishly comfortable. You can also opt for low chunky heels that are gentler on your feet. So whenever you plan to parade your outfit, you can do so without aching feet.
Remind yourself of what you want and deserve.
Don’t spend so much time thinking of what other people will say about your personal style. Make self-care your priority. Let your clothes be a reminder that you can wear whatever you want.
Everyone deserves to feel confident through comfortable clothes. Whatever your age, body type or race, there’s no standard that should dictate your preference for certain fashion.
Fashion is universal. As long as you are comfortable and you love what you wear, you can handle any outfit.
