After over a year of lockdowns, work-from-home, and virtual learning, we’ve come to realize a few things. First of all, we don’t actually want to spend all day, every day, with our partners. Teachers should also be receiving that CEO money. Comfortable is perhaps the most important. fashionThis is a mindset we should have adopted years ago. If you try to tell us that we have to start dressing in hard pants again, it won’t end well.
It’s totally possible to embrace “feel good” fashionYou don’t feel like a frump. We’re keeping these eight comfy fashion trends, dang it, and we’re not going back. (Besides, all our hard pants have been donated.)
1. Sweatsuit Sets
One of the few silver-linings of the age of social distancing was a rise in popularity for pajama-adjacent clothes. The matching sweatpants/sweatshirt trend has returned, and man, are we glad they’re actually cool. A matching set of comfortable clothes is more. “I’m an adult in toddler clothing”More “I’m a busy on-the-go mom with important Zoom calls who is not wearing pajamas in the pickup line!”
There are two types: those who embrace Crocs the first time they are cool and never let them go; and those who see their favorite Crocs rocking. CrocsThey were so popular that I had to get a pair. But they both share one undisputed truth: wear them and you’ll believe the hype. The OG extreme comfort shoe (is it a thing? This shoe is more than a slipper option. Crocs look great with the wide-leg, crop-flared jeans that the cool kids are sporting these days. They can also be worn with our favorite sweatsuits. Paired with leggings you’ve been wearing for a couple days, they tell the world you’re living your absolute best life. And although we love the Classic Clog, Crocs also makes platforms, slides, wedges — even boots. Goodbye — hopefully forever — to shoes we can’t wait to kick off at the end of the day. Now it’s all Crocs, all the time.
3. Flowy Tops
We salute all who are wearing (a crop top). The rest of us will be lounging in the most Stevie Nicks-inspired tops we can find. Shapewear? We don’t know her.
4. Non-Underwire Bras
Remember those optical illusion prints? mallKiosks in the ‘90s? You’d cross your eyes trying to see the unicorn your friend was claiming she saw, and then — BAM! Your brain switched on and you saw the unicorn, the majestic lion, or the wizard. It was so clear that you couldn’t stop looking at it. Well, that’s how we feel about soft bras. Now that we’ve experienced the freedom of our girls uncaged, they’ll never be relegated to lace-jail again.
Cardigans are one of those pieces that transcends trends. They’re endlessly versatile — whether in chunky cable knits or light-as-a-feather cashmere — and somehow always cool. They’re the fashionThe equivalent to a warm hug from your grandmother. The duster is a glamorous alternative to the cardi. Both items are basically three-season-friendly and perfect for layering. We’ll take one in every color, thankyouverymuch.
6. Stretchy Trousers
You may be asking, “What is this?” “stretchy trousers”Even though they are. Well, they’re an innovation whose moment has truly arrived. Many of us have been back at work for quite some time now. And, in person, leggings just don’t cut it professionally. Consider stretchy trousers. There are many styles, but all share the appearance of hard trousers with the pull-on souls of soft-cozy sweatpants. It’s like if hard pants and Crocs got together and had a cute and comfy pant baby.
7. Loose dresses
Dresses elevate your everyday look, right? A dress is always more elegant than jeans and a tee. The real truth is that unstructured dresses feel three times more comfortable than structured ones. Are loose dresses with pockets a good choice? These are the real MVPs.
8. A New Face
We love the idea of putting on full makeup for daily life. Yes, you can. But if you’ve decided that you’re kinda done with makeup and hair dye, now is your time. We’ve heard it all our lives, and we’re finally realizing it’s true: nothing is more beautiful than your most relaxed self.
Now that we’ve discovered comfy-cozy can also be cool, let’s stick together so buttoned up vests, sky-high stilettos, and bone-crushing shapewear don’t stand a chance!
Don’t wear styles that don’t fit you anymore. “feel good”You will find joy in the looks you choose. Ultra comfortable, stylish, and affordable CrocsWe invite you to come as yourself!
