Comfort or Style?

So i was reading a magazine and they were asking celebrities whether they dress for comfort or style? A lot of them said they definitely dress for comfort, despite the fact that they're wearing 5" heels. Some said when they dress, the shoes should hurt and your waist should be a little too tight.

I personally do both. It depends on the day and what i'm dressing for. I tend to wear heels that i broke in more. I find that sometimes, comfortable clothes can be stylish too. But if i really really have to pick, i'd pick style over comfort : )

What about you? Do you dress for comfort or style?

Both! on Aug 27, 2009 @ 02:29 pm

Depends on where I am and what the event is... when I am in BC (up near Whistler) I dress for comfort because when I dress for style, no one gets it and it makes me uncomfy with the 'looks' I get. When I am in the city...Van or Toronto, I dress more for style because I think it is fun to dress up and look fashionable. As an aside though, when I am travelling for an extended period of time (like right now), i tend to dress for comfort..unless it is an occasion at which point it is style style style! :o)

I think you can be both comfortable and stylish at the same time. After I had my son I got into a clothing rut and threw on whatever, but now I like to be stylish and comfortable. I'm so a jeans and t-shirt girl though because you can dress it up or down. And it does depend on the situation. If I'm at a fashion or event I try to dress for the occasion but if I'm going to the park with my son I want to be comfortable and in clothes I don't really care about for the getting dirty factor. When it comes to heels though - I love them but my body is just not used to walking around in them anymore for a long period of time. I'm super short and love the feeling of being somewhat tall in heels but flats have for sure become my best friend :) Glad they make cute flats now!

mostly comfort... on Aug 27, 2009 @ 09:36 pm

I am a comfort kind of person...I work in an 'alternative' healthcare setting, so the more 'natural' look goes. However, when I go out, I dress up :)

I love my shoes...can't do over a 3 inch heel these days though...

Both but comfort will always come first on Aug 28, 2009 @ 07:38 am

I'm a very casual person and my job doesn't require me to dress up for work. So I try to wear nice things whenever possible, especially when I go out for special occasions. But because I'm not accustom to wearing dressy/nice clothes everyday, I do incorporate the everyday-comfort-factor into my dress up clothes. My shoes don't go higher than 2-2.5" and I choose classic styles heels so they can go with pants or dress or skirts. My dressy outfits are also versatile that can go fancy or semi-fancy. I think you can still look really nice and appropriate for the occasion without killing yourself over it. If you are not comfortable in your clothes, then you won't have fun anyway. :)

Always both! I can't feel stylish and confident if I don't feel comfortable.

....style. All the way, I dress for style. I'm not ashamed to admit it - because, sometimes I luck out and the stylish outfit turns out to be comfortable. But seriously, when I go buy clothes and try them on, I never once ask myself 'but is this comfortable?' If it looks good and the price is right, I'm going to buy it. Unless of course it's stabbing me in the breast or something.

Also, shoes in my world = a little bit of pain. Although, my highest heels are actually my most comfortable. I do however walk around in heels when I try them on to make sure they won't cause any unnecessary blisters.

To me,comfort comes first! I have a friend who actually shortened all her toes so that her feet so that her feet look better in the shoes and so they fit better.Personally I think it's crazy!

.....comfort. For example, at this moment I'm sitting in class and am dressed like a bum (baggy jeans, running shoes, tshirt and sweater). I do sometimes dress for style, and when I put a little effort into my looks, EVERYONE notices (which really makes me wonder just how bum-ish i normally look!!).


agaphmou: your friend shortened her toes?? how?? ....omg .... wow.
