When it comes to fashion, it seems that looking cute and feeling comfortable is rarely a part of the same sentence. For a lot of people it can be a little difficult to wear something cozy without coming off as a slob, but luckily it’s not impossible. In fact, once you learn a few tips, you’ll be able to dress well and feel great with complete ease! Are you eager to update your wardrobe and rock some stylish outfits? Well, here’s how you can do it.
Dresses only seem like a high-maintenance garment, but in reality, they’re practically as casual as you can get. Unless you go for a short bodycon dress, they won’t restrict your movements, and they let you slip them on over your head and head out the door in less than five minutes. A baggy sweater dress is a nice choice if you want something fully casual, but we actually recommend that you pick something a little more polished and go for a fit-and-flare cut. This will enhance your figure, and you can either wear it with bare legs if it’s hot outside or go for a cute pair of tights or even leggings.
A good pair of shoes can really bring your outfit to a whole new level, and luckily those shoes can be completely cozy. If you really love heels but hate how uncomfortable they feel, go for nice wedged sandals or ankle boots with chunky heels. Skip those Jimmy Choo-styled stilettos—they might look glam, but they’ll make your feet ache after an hour. Other good options are high top sneakers with some stylish details or a sleek retro classic such as the Birkenstock Gizeh sandals that have anatomically-shaped soles and look absolutely cute when worn. Flat-soled boots, Oxford shoes, and Chelsea shoes are also great options, so find good footwear and your outfits will always look amazing.
Jeans can totally look polished, too! The trick to making them look really good is to go for darker denim because it always looks more elegant, and to pick a trendy cropped cut that shows off your ankles. Of course, this also means that you should skip high socks and stick to low-rider cuts and this way you can pair your jeans with some trendy sneakers and look absolutely cool. In general, finding a good pair of jeans that fits your body perfectly is always a good idea because it will give you a go-to garment that you can always rely on when you want to look good. Pair your denim with a silky blouse or a shimmery top if you want an easy evening outfit, and you’ll be ready to go out!
Don’t think sporty outfits are stylish? Just look at Hadid sisters and Kendal Jenner. The famous models love their athleisure outfits, and the trend of cozy yoga pants, hoodies, and chunky sneakers is still on the rise. Mix function with fashion through this style and don’t be afraid to match your sporty things to your denim. For example, your jeans can be a good base to a cute baggy crop top worn over a slim body shirt, or you can wear your denim skirt with sneakers and a brightly-coloured hoodie.
Accessories can turn any boring outfit into something truly beautiful, so if you’re a fan of very classic cuts and solid colours, you can use accessories to add something interesting. Utilize brightly-coloured silky scarves to add fun layers, and consider grabbing a hat to go with it. Baseball caps and hats are always cool, unexpected details. Jewellery is also a great addition, so invest in some simple hoop earrings that you can pop on whenever you’re going out. Layering thin chain necklaces is also a nice styling trick, but you can also go for a chunkier necklace or even a choker if that’s your thing.
Another good idea is makeup—you won’t believe the kind of difference a lip gloss can make, or better yet, a bold lipstick. If you wear makeup, even if it’s a very minimal amount, you’ll always look a little more put together and fashionable.
Any gal can be stylish. Fashion doesn’t mean you need to commit yourself to always being uncomfortable, so don’t feel limited. Try these tips and enjoy!
