When you open your dresser, do you shove through great clothes looking for something comfy to wear? Of course you do! Everyone does it. Your dresser and closet can be a portal to the world of…’Nah, not today!’ Nobody wants to dress twice in the same day but sometimes it is unavoidable especially when dealing with work attire. In today’s world, it is not uncommon for people to lounge around in sweat pants all day and then throw on a pair of UGGS when they go out later that night. Fashion can be put aside quite easily when talking about comfort. However, pairing style with comfort can be one of the easiest things you do. All you need is a few fashion tips and tricks to get you on your way.
1. Out of Sight = Out of Mind
Stop pushing past all those lovely items that you don’t feel like wearing anytime soon such as tight tops, pants, constricting belts and high heel shoes. You don’t need those items sitting around mocking you! Instead, bag them up and place them under the bed or somewhere else out of the way. You’re not discarding them for good. You are simply making room in your drawers, and also in your head, for easy fashionable choices. Now when you look in your drawers, you can let out a sigh of relief instead of a sigh of dismay.
2. Color Coordinate
Set your mind to a specific color palette, such as neutral colors, in order to make color coordination quick and easy. Don’t be boring and only keep white or black clothing in your drawers. Simply make it a point to choose items which complement each other easily. Therefore, when you wake up with droopy eyes and are squinting to choose today’s wardrobe, you will look stunning with whatever you choose.
3. Color Coordination with a Twist
Add one signature color to your neutral palette for those days when you feel like dressing with flair. That way, you don’t feel the need to riffle through your “hidden” bag of clothing for an uplifting look of the week. Nothing says ‘POP’ quite like an oversized pink top. Use a lacy black bralette underneath for added fashion and to hide your bra straps. Put on a pair of black flats with denim jeans and you are good to go.
4. Work It!
If you must go to work wearing some type of dress attire, be sure and get yourself several shift dresses. These are presentable in most work environments. They are sleek and tailored without being restrictive which is considered bad when you are talking about comfortable fashion. These dresses look great with or without accessories so if you’re feeling it…accessorize!
5. Buy Appropriate Clothes
Buying appropriate clothes means machine washable items and not provocative items. Check your tags and if it says dry-clean only, put it back. Dry-cleaning is expensive and time consuming. You are going to wear it once and then toss it aside for dry-cleaning. Guess what? It will get to the cleaners about 6 months later. In addition, you might end up accidently washing it with other clothes and then it’s ruined. Instead, wash everything in cold water and then throw it in the dryer on low. By the way, don’t even think about keeping clothes that need ironed. That would certainly be a waste of money when you can expand your clothes selection with machine washable items.
