If you are into fashion, you will undoubtedly have found yourself unable to wear that ‘jacket’ or ‘those shoes’ because they would not be suitable for the day ahead. The best option is to select items combining fashion and functionality which is the key to success. Choosing styles or shapes that focus on ease of movement and timeless pieces will allow you to wear them throughout all seasons and weather.
One of the biggest misconceptions in fashion is that you cannot look stylish and be comfortable simultaneously (it has almost been an on-running joke, even in movies, that you must suffer to look good).
Fortunately, those days have long passed, and many designers have moved away from tighter silhouette shapes and instead listened to their customers and created clothing ranges that are easy to wear yet also tick those style boxes (after all, even joggers can be rocked outside now thanks to runway designs).
Rather than suffering with super tight skinny jeans, choose a looser cut that allows your legs to breathe yet still looks sophisticated, especially paired with a classic pair of loafers or designer sneakers.
Choose Your Shoes Wisely
If you are on your feet all day or even in the office, comfortable shoes can make all the difference between a good and bad day. Rubbing on your feet or toes via ill-fitting shoes can be a nightmare, especially as it transforms into a blister! Even slow walking can be unbearable.
Instead, designs like barefoot shoes can make you feel like you are walking on air – these types of shoes are perfect for those of us who lead busy, hectic lives, and you do not have to forgo style as they look fantastic too!
Invest In Versatile Pieces
After some research and you are finally happy with your great capsule wardrobe, your fashion game will feel unstoppable. Your capsule collection should be filled with quality pieces that are easy to wear yet ideal for any occasion – breathable t-shirts, quality jeans and chinos, fitted shirts, and structured coats.
Once you have a range of key items, you can easily adapt by adding new clothes without having to invest in high-priced statement pieces that quickly go out of style and instead have classics that will see you through many years to come.
Understand Your Own Style
Despite everything, style is always very personal, and some of us have different levels of what makes us feel comfortable. Guys who prefer a relaxed style can easily incorporate casual outfits into their daily looks, yet men who opt for smarter formal ensembles may find it more difficult to adapt. However, with a few tricks up your sleeve, you can easily feel comfortable and sophisticated all at once.
With this new knowledge, you will be well-armed to stock your wardrobe with stylish, functional clothes for your wardrobe. What do you think of my latest post? Let me know if you want to see more like this in the comments section.
