Tossing the itchy materials, pinching waistlines, and five-inch stilettos may be ideal, but that doesn’t mean you have to go for sweatpants and sneakers just to stay comfortable. Who says you need to come home every night dying to put off your dress and kick off your shoes? Since there’s a way to look glamorous while staying comfortable, keep on reading for our guidelines.
Go for pieces with a good structure.
Glamor doesn’t have to equal uncomfortable silhouettes and tight necklines. Instead, look for pieces with a good structure to it, but a comfortable feel. Like fashion blogger Jenny Tsang, you may go for a cozy turtleneck top and wrap skirt that will look glamorous with a structured coat and boots. If you choose ensembles with clean lines and sharp tailoring, or a top that’s made out of sturdier and more luxurious material, you’ll give off the vibe of glamor but be as comfy as you would be in jeans.
Think of metallic ensembles to dress up your looks.
Gold accents and metallic trims can dress up your outfits. Like fashion blogger Micah Gianneli, think of a quilted metallic gold blazer that will dress up your urban outfit while keeping everything effortless. If you have an amazing skirt or glamorous pants or sharply tailored trousers, balance out the glitz and glamour of the piece by pairing it with a cozy sweater. Not only will you be chic enough to make an appearance in a magazine tutorial, but you’ll be comfortable, too.
Match tees with fancy bottoms.
If you have a show stopper skirt, try matching it with a tee. Whether it’s a simple white or grey tee or something with more oomph to it like this striped one, it’ll look interesting because of the juxtaposition between glamorous and casual. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, you may even think of a pair of pastel culottes that will look chic with a plain white tee, or a pair of beige pants that will look dressy with a gray tee. This way, you’ll extend your casual tee into a dressier look.
Opt for chic yet comfortable shoes.
If you need some height, you may go for heels in chunkier style so you can walk in them easily, providing the shoes are comfortable. However, you can still look glamorous in ballet flats. Like fashion blogger Mary Orton, think of patent leather flats that will look glamorous yet comfortable with your red dress, perfect for office or party look. Instead of a pair of strappy sandals, a pair of ballet flats will look dressy enough with your denim shorts and blazer like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan wore. By heeding these tricks, you’ll be able to get a glamorous style while keeping everything effortless and comfortable.
