STYLE ADVICE: Comfy Is the New Sexy

STYLE ADVICE: Comfy Is the New Sexy

The best outfits are the ones that allow for total mobility while still serving looks, especially in the winter time. As the temperature drops, many may believe it is too cold to strive for style and retire to sweatpants and Uggs for the entire season. WRONG. The slay never stops. We all remember Mariah Carey’s faux pas when she was fashioned in a black velour jumpsuit partnered with heels. Years later, this has become a head turning “sexy/comfy” ensemble for the winter. The need for warmer clothing and layers allows for an increase in creativity when coordinating day to day looks in the cold.

Take this Fashionista, for example. She is sporting a bright red jump suit. Winter is usually associated with darker colors to give a calm and relaxing affect, but the bold color alone creates a statement as she is countering the mood of the season with this pop of color. The jumpsuit is also a very practical piece for the winter. It is loose and comfortable, allowing for space to move about throughout the day. Fashionistas should also use this as an opportunity to layer up from the inside. Tights and undershirts can be worn underneath this jumpsuit to lock in body heat. With this look, you can keep warm without wearing an excess amount of sweaters under your jacket.

Chunky booties are an essential must-have for the winter. As seen in the featured photo, she is wearing a pair of chunky, black zip-up booties.To keep her hands warm, this Fashionista is wearing a pair of fuzzy mittens. The soft pink color balances the tone of the bright red while still staying within the color spectrum. The choice of mittens over gloves not only ensures more warmth but also adds playfulness to the outfit.

This look is bold, festive, and practical, which is perfect for a Fashionista’s winter season! Remember, comfort does not equate to ugly. A Fashionista who can still strut down the streets in the most relaxed attire is a true fashion killer!
