Fashion Talk: Mix and Match Outfits for Comfort and Style on the Go

Some people live by the belief that beauty is pain, but that shouldn’t be the case, especially when it comes to fashion. While it’s true that some occasions call for killer heels and motion-challenging dresses, the reality is, everyday wear must be nothing short of comfortable as one conquers everyday tasks.

Comfort in fashion has been on the rise more than ever, with celebrities and influencers seen sporting laid-back yet striking clothing from brunch to movie premieres. Somehow, it makes them more relatable. because who doesn’t want comfort, right?

With today’s fast-paced lifestyle, people have become more and more inclined to lean toward practicality and wearability rather than just simply looking nice. The good news is, style and comfort can go hand in hand with the right choices. Besides, one doesn’t even need a celebrity stylist to pull it off. Take a look at the pieces that can be mixed and matched for the ultimate comfortable style on the go.

Ditch the Heels: Go for a Midi Skirt and Sneakers or Low Boots

The midi skirts continue to make their comeback from the ’70s—plain, printed, pleated. There’s just something that makes them a no-brainer fashion choice. Being dainty and feminine, they’re easy to pair with pointy stilettos.

To stay comfortable yet stylish, though, match them with a pair of sneakers. White is often a no-fail choice.

For that edgier appeal, go for low-cut boots; the less chunky, the better. With these two options, going to work or a day date will simply feel bewitching. Finish off the look with a crossbody purse.

Sell Clothes to Make Room for Long Coats and Staple Dresses

One of the best ways to achieve comfort fashion is to have a capsule wardrobe. Having that means having only the essentials and getting rid of, well, useless items that are only taking up space.

Start purging your closet by picking out only what you truly use, but don’t let the unwanted ones go to waste. You can try selling these clothes online. These days, it’s so easy to set up an online shop through social media platforms and other go-to places for thrifty fashionistas.

Use the earned money to shop for more timeless pieces like long coats and staple dresses. Watch any woman-centered movie or show, and see how this combo never fails to make an appearance. For example, the heroine goes about her daily life, hailing cabs, or she’s pulling out all the stops for a big and impressive work presentation.

Invest in White Tops and Denim Bottoms

Speaking of keeping only the essentials, one can never go wrong with keeping this combo. Nothing says classic comfort more than a white top matched with a denim bottom does. Whether it’s a plain white tee or a button-down shirt, a good old white top always delivers.

Get playfully sassy by tying it in front (or at the back for T-shirts). Pair it with denim jeans, shorts, or skirts, and voila, you have an instant head turner.

Be the Bomb in a Crop Top and Bomber Jacket

Oh, crop . . . top! This trend has been around for a while, and it does not show any signs of stopping. Then again, who doesn’t love a cute crop top? It’s great because it can be worn casually with shorts or pants but can also look phenomenal with a long skirt for formal events. Make no mistake; even brides are wearing crop tops.

The bomber jacket or flight jacket, on the other hand, has also been a fashion staple for years. The bomber jacket was created for a different purpose, but it is now a staple in movies (Top Gun, anyone?) and among all sorts of characters. With its casual but detailed cut, this jacket is a true standout. So if you put the bomber jacket and the crop top together, what do you get? A sure hit that spells snug style.

Slay in a Jumpsuit and Blazer

Here’s a power duo worth strutting in. Channel that inner boss girl in a sleek jumpsuit paired with a blazer.

Jumpsuits are one of the best things that ever happened in the fashion world. Why? Because this one-piece clothing gives the impression of a well-thought-out outfit without a gal needing to think too hard about coordinating the top and the bottom. Talk about time and energy-saving. Smartly choose ones made of stretchy and soft fabric so as not to restrict your movement.

Cover up with a blazer, and transform this quickly from an office look to a party getup for a night out with the girls. Opt for block-heeled sandals to maintain easy movement throughout the day.

Be Cozy in a Hoodie and Leggings

Athleisure continues to take the streets by storm and for a good reason. Its goal is to bring comfort and function while staying fashionable. Gone are the days when activewear is only used for working out or sweating out at the gym.

Now is the best time to take out those hoodies and leggings for just about anything. Grabbing a coffee? Running some errands? A quick casual meet-up with friends? Put on that yoga pants or squat-proof leggings that sculpt the lower body, and balance it out with an oversized or baggy hoodie.

Take Out Those Trousers and Loafers

These are probably the two items that are in most people’s wardrobe throughout the years. Considered as fashion’s favorite flats, loafers date back to as early as the 1930s and still make a regular appearance today.

Meanwhile, a good pair of trousers is perfect for corporate meetings, lunch dates, and whatever is on the calendar. Even with a simple top, a good pair of trousers leaves an impression of confidence. If classy chic is the goal, then these two are the must-have duo.

Say It with a Kimono Jacket and Slip-on Sandals

Whimsical with a touch of elegance, the kimono jacket brings a pop of color to any outfit. Put on a basic tank top and any bottoms or don a neutral dress. Then, throw in this relaxed, fun piece, and watch the flowy transformation. Finish off with slip-on sandals for that ultimate carefree, chic look.
