How to Stay Stylish In Ultimate Comfort without Wearing Sweats

It’s not exactly newsflash-knowledge that style sits pretty high on the list of things that matter to a fashionista. But that doesn’t mean a girl’s gotta suffer! With sporty chic becoming a mainstay amongst the fash-pack, options abound for those who want an au courant look without an uncomfortable feel. Here are some options for you to conveniently peruse.

Stay Stylish and Comfortable!

In style lingo, the term slouch refers to a loose-fitting, relaxed silhouette. We’ve seen the look all over our must-reads for awhile now, and it’s become a key trend for comfort seekers. To pull off anything slouchy, you’ve got to contrast the baggy shape with a slim, or structured piece. In other words, keep your boyfriend jeans away from your oversized sweater! Reach instead for leggings or skinny pants. A form-fitting trouser looks extra sharp when grounded with a knee-high buckle boot. And to really up the ante in the style department, top on a big brim floppy hat.

So what about those boyfriend jeans? Both comfy and vintage-y cool, the worn-in look should most definitely be included in your stylishly comfy wardrobe. If you’re one of those women who doesn’t equate sky high heels with blisters, then this is your chance – step into those stilettos for a sexy finish! Just don’t forget to cuff the jeans for ankle display. If you prefer something a bit less high, then go for the brogue or oxford. It’s retro and fresh all in one. A fitted tee layered with a classic Chanel-ish jacket gives the lady-like touch that pulls the look together.
