When it comes to fashion, many people think that they have to choose between what’s comfortable and what looks good. However, more often than not, comfortable clothes can help you to look and feel better.
When it comes to styling your outfit, confidence is key. You can get away with most clothes, as long as you’re confident and comfortable in what you’re wearing. Here are some ways that comfort can be fashionable.
Being comfortable with your clothing comes down to two primary factors. The first is physical comfort. Simply put, if you’re in pain or otherwise obviously uncomfortable, then you aren’t going to look as good as you could.
But there’s also the idea of being comfortable with your style. While you can try to follow trends or dress like someone else, the best way to be comfortable in what you’re wearing is to come up with your own style.
Ideally, your style should suit your body and personality alike. It sounds simple, but if you love the clothes you’re wearing, it’s easier to love how you look.
When picking or creating an outfit, one of the things that you will be looking for is a good silhouette. Your clothing, as well as your body creates a certain shape. The best thing to do is to look at what silhouettes you like before you come up with your outfits, so you know what effect you want to go for.
For example, if you want to create an hourglass silhouette, then choose outfits that accentuate your waist, while exaggerating your hips and shoulders. You can also wear clothing that creates a slimmer, straight up and down silhouette, a more masculine silhouette that highlights your arms, shoulders, and comes in at the waist, or whatever shape you like.
As well as choosing your outer layers, pay attention to your underwear as it can have an impact on the structure of your outfit, as well as your own comfort. While women’s underwear isn’t necessarily designed to be seen by everyone, it will be felt by you and it can affect how your clothes sit on you. Always make sure that you have a good foundation before you build your look.
It seems obvious, but if your clothes don’t fit properly, then they will never be comfortable. However, a surprising amount of people wear clothes that don’t fit. Often, these are older clothes that they still love. Or people might buy clothes in a dress size that they used to be.
People change shape over time, it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Also, some cuts are more or less flattering than others, meaning that you might be one size in one outfit, but a couple of sizes bigger or smaller in a different one.
The important thing is to try on your clothes before you buy and focus on the fit, not the size. Then you’ll be more comfortable and you’ll look better.
