Why Dressing For Comfort Is Better
Than Dressing For Style

Nowadays, it seems like having style is one of the most important things a person can
have. Knowing what to wear if you are going out to a fancy dinner or simply just hanging
out with friends, it’s important to know what to wear. Although I agree, I also disagree.
Yes, style is important, but you know what’s more important? Comfort.

To me, it doesn’t matter how stylish you look, if you are not feeling comfortable it just
ruins the whole look. That’s why everyone should dress for comfort rather than for style.

Plus, who’s to say you can’t dress comfortably and still be stylish at the same time?

Having come into my own sense of style recently, I realized that being comfortable is
ten times better than just looking stylish. I realized that when I’m trying to “dress to
impress”, it doesn’t matter how good I might look, if I’m not comfortable, I don’t feel
good. And If I don’t feel good, then I honestly probably don’t look good.

Everyone has seen that person wearing the 6 inch high heels or the tight skinny jeans,
and you just know that they are uncomfortable. Yeah, the heels are cool and the jeans
are pretty, but you know that the person can’t wait to just take them off right when they
get home. They have it written all over their face. They’re probably in pain from walking
in the heels or day, or they feel as though they are about to bust their jeans open.

The point is, people probably can tell you’re uncomfortable if you are actively
uncomfortable in what you’re wearing. So it doesn’t matter that you are wearing the
latest trend, if you are uncomfortable, it’ll just distract from the look itself anway.

When you dress for comfort however, you feel good.

Now, you might be thinking, “How can you dress comfortably and be stylish at the same
time?” Good question, let me explain!

Things such as sweatpants and baggy clothing are the new rage these days. You can
wear a pair of gray sweatpants and style them with a cute tank-top. Or, you can even
just wear sweatpants and a baggy t-shirt, and style that with cool shoes or jewelry.
Sneakers are also the new craze these days. From Nike to Adidas, everyone is wearing
sneakers. So there’s another plus for comfort!

There’s nothing like feeling comfortable. You feel good, you feel secure, and you feel
like you can take on the world. So, dress for comfort, not style, and I promise you will
feel a hundred times better.

    Celebrities: The Key to Selling Luxury Fashion

    When I was younger, I loved staring at images of beautiful celebrities in glamorous outfits on red carpets. Although I never deeply contemplated who owned the clothing they wore, I always assumed it was the celebrities themselves. Confessions of a Shopaholic was a movie I would watch religiously. It was probably the inspiration for my dream of a color-coordinated walk-in closet, complete with an entire wall just for my shoes. In my mind, wealth and its power resided in the clothes it could buy me and nothing more.
