What I Wore

Comfort vs. Fashion


In fashion at times things that are aesthetically pleasing do not equate to comfort. This is why the ease and comfort of wearing clothing has become a huge deciding factor in my wardrobe choices. However; this hasn’t always been the case. I’ve come to the conclusion that when I was younger I was either trying way too hard to be cute, had a higher tolerance for discomfort or maybe I’ve just become fussier when it comes to my style.


Being able to wear an outfit that requires little adjustments throughout the day means a lot to me. Tugging at your clothes does convey confidence in your style. Since coming into my own, I’ve begun to make wardrobe choices that will leave me feeling untroubled (for the most part) so that I can focus on whatever the task is at hand and not on clothes. Even when it comes to fabric, I tend to stay away from things that require dry cleaning and buy items that require minimal ironing. Don’t get it twisted – comfort doesn’t mean lazy it means low maintenance.


Most days I prefer to wear dresses over pants because of the ease of wearing a dress. It’s an instant outfit not requiring much else to make it work; but there are times when even wearing a dress can be daunting. A no-fail way to achieve a look of comfort and style is via a good pairs of jeans.


Adding denim with fancier pieces infuses an element of chic into your comfy look. These days I’m really into wide leg styles and boyfriend jeans. Both are very versatile and you can really get creative with styling. In the spirit of the holidays, I wore my denim with a sheer sequins shirt and topped it with a velvet blazer. The one thing worth a little discomfort when it comes to my style are shoes! These aren’t the most comfortable shoes but they make this ‘fit a fab ensemble.
