5 Outfits for Comfort & Style-On-The-Go
Whether you’re a busy mom with a to-do list as long as a CVS receipt, a college student running across campus trying to make it to class on time, or simply someone who loves looking stylish while feeling comfortable, I’m sure you’ll find an outfit combination that fits in to your on-the-go routine.
Outfit #1: Layering
The easiest tip to looking chic while feeling comfortable is layering. There is no outfit that a long jacket or duster (below the knees but above the ankles) can’t pull together. No matter what you are wearing underneath, layering can make it look stylish. Try styling black pants, a neutral-colored shirt, and sneakers with a long jacket and see how you instantly look more fashionable. For rainy summer days or cool nights, try throwing a trench. On crisp fall mornings, a wool jacket will keep you comfy and warm.
Outfit #2: Chic Sportswear
There has been a growing athleisure trend over the past several years. More and more, women are finding unique ways to mix fashion with comfort, and are proving this is 100% possible with chic sportswear. Who doesn’t love a stretchy pair of yoga pants – without the added smell of sweat? For a stylish sporty look, grab your favorite pair of yoga pants, a cute tank top, comfortable sneakers, and top it with a sporty jacket. This outfit will be perfect whether you’re off to work or have to run a few errands. It looks stylish and sophisticated with the extra comfort you need to check everything off your to-do list.
Outfit #3: Knitwear
Knitwear is great because they come in different stich sizes, colors, styles, and lengths, so you can really play around with this look. This doesn’t mean break out your ugly Christmas sweater or that cardigan your grandma knit you that is missing an armhole. Instead, grab an oversized sweater (preferable one made from a non-itchy, breathable material) and put on some black leggings. To finish off the look, wrap a pretty scarf around your neck and wear some comfortable boots. Now you’re ready for a long study session at the library or a coffee date with your favorite gals.
Outfit #4: Jumpsuits
Every woman has stood in front of their closet scrounging for an ounce of motivation to match a pair of pants with a nice shirt. For days where this seems like a daunting task (or the shirt and pants you were planning on wearing are in the wash) opt for jumpsuits! Jumpsuits are great on the go because they give you the flexibility to bend down without revealing anything, while still ditching the mom jeans and looking glamorous. Not to mention that the styling possibilities are endless with basic color jumpsuits. Next time you have to be out the door in 10-minutes, consider pulling on a black jumpsuit with ballet flats or white sneakers.
Outfit #5: Midi Dresses
Midi dresses are revolutionary. It is a style the screams adventure with style. Midi dresses come up to your ankles, making it longer than a mini dress and shorter than a maxi dress. Instead of sweating in pants or feeling out of place in shorts, a midi dress gives you the opportunity to feel comfortable while rocking the style. It’s the perfect outfit for taking your kids to the playground, picnicking on the grass on campus, or heading on a dinner date. A pretty, loose dress instantly feels relaxed and chic paired with cute sandals.
Bonus Tip: Top Knots!
Never underestimate the power of a simple bun to make you look ‘dressed up’ (or mask that greasy hair). There are so many variations for top knots online, and depending on your hair length and texture, you can find the perfect bun that you can put together in a matter of minutes. Top knots are great for when you hit the snooze button one too many times and need a quick hair fix, or want to keep your hair out of your face while you are grocery shopping. They are practical and look super stylish. For a quick, easy hairstyle that instantly elevates your outfit try a messy bun!
