A pulled-together look is not only attractive but can make you appear more approachable and confident. At the same time, it’s not unreasonable to want to be comfortable as you go about your day. Fortunately, comfort and a chic, sophisticated look are not mutually exclusive.
Simplicity is always been a key aspect of sophistication. You can use this to your advantage when putting together comfortable, yet attractive outfits. Here are some suggestions:
Tunic Over Leggings: The combination of long, roomy tunic tops over sleek leggings is a classic one. It can also be extremely comfortable when you opt for pieces crafted from warm, soft knits. Even better, this outfit can work in multiple settings, whether you are doing some shopping downtown, eating with friends, or enjoying a quiet day at home.
One look that we particularly like is a solid color tunic worn over printed leggings and paired with jewelry or shoes that picks up some of the colors in the print. The leggings add a touch of whimsy to your look while also creating a sophisticated silhouette.
Choose a Simple Shoe: These days, a comfortable does not have to mean casual when it comes to footwear. Block heels are stable, comfortable, and are appropriate to wear in most settings. If you prefer to wear flats, match a plain flat with an outfit with embellishments or, if you prefer, a bejeweled or beaded flat with a simple outfit.
Opt for a Scarf: Scarves add a touch of class to any outfit and are a great alternative to wearing a necklace. One look to consider is a belted scarf worn over a simple tunic or blouse. You could also choose to wear a large scarf as a shawl or wrap, eliminating the need for a jacket.
Comfort leads to confidence and confidence is always attractive. Don’t settle for uncomfortable clothing, shoes, or accessories just because you like the way they look. Take the time to put together outfits that make you feel as good as you look.
