Presenting your best self comes from being comfortable and wearing stylish items that are functional and look great on. When we look good, we feel good, but did you know this is equally true the other way around? Feeling great in an outfit makes us relaxed, happy, and ready to take on the day. Here are five stylish and comfortable clothing items for women to add to their day-to-day mix.

A Chic and Functional Jacket

No matter what you throw together on a busy morning, layering it with a stylish, go-to jacket will work magic. The cooler season beckons another layer, so why not make it a signature wardrobe piece? To select the perfect jacket, opt for a neutral color like black, gray, or shades of cream and khaki. Next, consider the material and pick something with a soft lining that will feel like you stayed in your pajamas instead of braving the outside world. Finally, buy a fitted style. You’ll look pulled together every time!

Ultra-Soft Pants

Every woman has a pair or two of go-to jeans or pants. Upgrade your wardrobe with a pair of skinny ponte pants. Ponte is a durable, double-knit fabric specially designed to give you a smooth silhouette matched with unbeatable two-way stretch. These pants will be your new favorites as they’re so comfy without sacrificing style. 

Convertible Day-to-Night Top

Perhaps you’ve done some traveling, or maybe you just appreciate a good piece of clothing that can be worn in a few different ways. When you think of “convertible clothing” think “stretch jersey material”. A stretch jersey top (or convertible dress for that matter) offers a variety of styles all in one article of comfortable clothing! A multi-style day-to-night top has long, wide sleeves that function as straps ready to be twisted and tied however you choose. A convertible top can be worn in an office-appropriate v-neck, light-weight halter (beneath that chic, functional jacket) or as a long-sleeve blouse. The off-the-shoulder or strapless configuration is perfect for a night on the town.

A Stylish and Practical Pair of Shoes

Many modern shoe designs for men combine maximum comfort with style. As far as the fairer sex is concerned, top shoes combining comfort with style include:

  • Dansko
  • Aerosoles
  • Clark’s
  • Easy Spirit

Remember, the key to a good-looking shoe is color, stick with a rich brown or black. Dansko’s Sam Ankle-Strap Clog is gorgeous and looks great with slacks or dresses.

Aerosoles offers a close-toed, fully tailored silhouette shoe in stretch material. If you like a heel, Clark’s Emslie Lulin Mary Jane’s are gorgeous. Finally, Easy Spirit’s Getcity Ballet Flats look just like those trendy Tieks, but cost less than 1/2, and won’t break the bank.

A Multi-functional Scarf

Rounding out a stylish, comfortable wardrobe is the versatile wrap. Choose a large scarf in cashmere or a shawl-shrug to add an extra layer of warmth and fashion to every outfit. You can be bold here and choose a signature pop of color that will make a statement.

Fall is a great season to go through clothing and categorize items by most-to-least worn. Consider upgrading a favorite jacket or pair of shoes that could use it, and try a new color when it comes to that signature accessory. Shop with function and material durability in mind.
