(simple) blue. Despite my recent (and by recent I mean since last spring) frenzy over pencil skirts, for daily (comfortable) style I generally tend to gravitate towards loser shapes. In fact, the loser the better (at times).
And so I began thinking about daily comfort. A train of thought which was only magnified after reading a quote on instagram which stated:
“Fashion is always uncomfortable… if u feel comfortable u NEVER get the look!!!!”
While I like to think that the message trying to be conveyed was more in the line of “you should never be too comfortable with your fashion choices” (aka always take fashion risks), it still got me thinking that for me comfort (and ease) in clothes is just as important as fashion.
In my case this means wearing shoes with elongating properties (you know, the magical pointy heels!), going for a size M or L rather than S in t-shirts and sweaters (or hitting the men’s section altogether), never wearing uncomfortable shoes (or shoes I cannot walk in), avoiding wearing yellow on top (which tends to give a hepatitis tint with my colouring)… Alas, the list goes on.
But the more I look as of late, the more complicated the ‘looks’ seem to be getting. Take ‘streetstyle’, which has taken a liking for the dramatic in the past seasons (a fact already well documented and discussed this fashion month).
All this does is make me crave for a certain level of ‘simplicity’. But by simple, I in no way mean boring.
