Wouldn’t it be nice to wear yoga pants and your leisure bra all day, every day? Well, maybe you can! Functional fashion is all about versatility. Everyone longs to be comfortable while also looking stylish. It is all possible when you learn how to dress your most comfy wardrobe pieces for the workplace and beyond.
We’re bringing you tips on how to wear your comfy clothes to work. And yes, that even includes your gym clothes, ladies! Here’s how you can achieve the comfy-chic look:
T-shirts are a staple in every woman’s wardrobe, however you may never see even your closest pals wearing them. Relegated to sleepwear and late night trips to the grocery store, t-shirts don’t get much love during daylight hours. But you can wear a simple t-shirt in a fashionable way. It’s all about how you style it. Add a breezy scarf to a solid color or subtly printed t-shirt along with a bold bracelet and earrings for a fabulously effortless look in your favorite t-shirt.
Who says yoga pants are only for the gym? Yoga pants are now offered in a variety of styles, many of which are suitable for work. Look for a basic pair in a dark color that are not too snug but still offer structure. Pair it with a blouse or blazer and pumps or boots to add professional flair.
Depending on your workplace, a structured tank top may or may not be appropriate. If you can wear sleeveless tops, select a tank that has interesting detail that makes it look dressier, but avoid spaghetti straps. Otherwise, layer your tank with a blazer, wrap dress or tunic. This is a terrific way to wear your gym clothes to work. Simply shed the layers and head straight to the gym after work.
Dress them up or dress them down, you can rock leggings in a variety of ways. For work, leggings pair beautifully with a long button-down blouse. Add a blazer for meetings with clients or the boss. Leggings with a side stripe elongate and slim your legs, as do pumps or wedges. And of course, riding boots over leggings are a hot look for winter as well.
Sweatshirts aren’t just a way to cheer on your favorite sports team or college, they can be chic and work appropriate too. Find a thin sweatshirt in a solid or simple print that you can pair with slim fit jeans or pants. For additional panache, wear a collared shirt underneath and let the tail peep through the bottom. Style it with fun jewelry such as a long necklace and dangly earrings.
Flats have been in style in the workplace for some time, but now you can even wear swanky sneakers on the job. No, we’re not talking about your gym shoes, but basic sneakers with a sophisticated print, either in slip-on or lace-up, can be super trendy with Capri pants or other work trousers.
You CAN be comfy at work. Take a look through the casual section of your closet, even your gym clothes, to find ways to incorporate your favorite comfy clothes in your workplace wardrobe. And don’t forget your comfiest full figure bras to complete the outfit so you look and feel great all day!
