You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Try our four most comfortable clothing items and stay on trend while feeling like you’re at home in your pajamas. Wide leg pants, leggings, maxi skirts, and slouchy sweaters are amazingly comfortable while being fashionable.
Wide and Fresh
For comfort, you can’t beat a pair of wide-leg pants. They give your legs cool ventilation while providing a fresh silhouette to complete your outfit. Wide-leg pants are versatile and go with any kind of outfit from dressy to super casual. Wide-leg pants come in styles ranging from jeans to soft, flowy palazzo pants. They elongate the body and have a slimming effect. Many wide-leg pants have an elastic waistband, which you can cover up with a longer top or a tied belt.
You can go with a bold striped pattern with a simple top, or a tailored look with soft but classic fabrics. Pair wide-leg pants with a long top for a casual look. It’s also trendy to wear a cropped top with wide-leg pants: if you do this, be sure to add accessories like a statement necklace or a scarf to balance the top.
Simple or Standout
Leggings are on-trend, especially in fabrics like leather and metallics. Their popularity means that women of all body types can feel comfortable wearing them out and about. There are a number of fresh ways to style leggings. You can wear black leggings with a white top for a classic look. You can dress it up in a structured jacket and a statement bag. You can also tie a sweater or jacket around your waist to define it.
You can go for the athleisure look by pairing leggings with a cropped pullover sweatshirt or hoodie and wearing your boldest sneakers. You can also dress leggings down in a baggy vintage T-shirt and hat. This sounds risky because people may think you just rolled out of bed, but go ahead and wear it and let people think what they like.
Go for the Max
Maxi skirts are incredibly comfortable. They have a uniquely airy feeling which makes you feel cool and breezy. In patterns or solids, they pair well with many different tops. They come in a wide variety of fabrics like cool jersey and warm velvet. A high slit in the side keeps the skirts from looking frumpy.
A maxi skirt can be worn all year round, with warm and cozy sweaters or tanks and T-shirts. It can be appropriate for any occasion, from running errands to formal events, depending on the fabric. Pair a classic black skirt with a neutral top and a jacket or blazer for an easy office look. Wear a pleated satin maxi with a metallic top and shrug sweater for evening. Mix and match patterns and fabrics for a bold statement.
One of our favorite pieces is the long and slouchy sweater. In a variety of soft, warm yarns, these sweaters feel like being wrapped up in a blanket. It takes a little bit of strategy to style a slouchy sweater so you don’t look too sloppy – it’s better to stay away from wide-leg pants and long skirts. Slouchy sweaters look especially good with leggings and jeans.
There are so many styles of loose sweaters, it would be easy to create a variety of outfits with sweaters you already have in your closet. Combine a luxe fabric like cashmere with simple leggings to show off your sweater. Wear a long sweater with a tied belt to draw your waist in and instantly dress up the look. Details like fringe bring visual interest to your sweater.
Be Fashionable but Stay Comfortable
You can dress well and keep up with current styles without having to be uncomfortable. These four pieces will help you look great while making you secretly comfortable and cozy in winter, or cool in the summer.
