Admit it: There are days when all you want to do is throw on a comfortable outfit and forgo the dress codes of work and social events. For me, those days are 90% of them. Recently, my co-workers categorized my style as "cozy and cool," and I'm not entirely sure I reach a high level of cool, but I can say I've mastered the skill of putting together a comfortable 'fit. Just because you're wearing something cozy doesn't mean it can't also be stylish, especially with the trends that have garnered attention in the past few years. Matching sets, ribbed dresses, and printed knits—I'll take the whole lot.
If you want evidence that a lounging item can make it outside your home, just look at the outfits below that I gathered from the fashion set. Whether you're slipping into your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans, an oversize sweater, or a worn-in T-shirt, there are ways to elevate your comfy look. Keep scrolling to see winning outfits you'll want to keep repeating.
While wearing a knit top or sweater may be a little too basic, this set changes things up in the best way possible.
Even during New York Fashion Week, Maria proves that comfort is the priority. Sweatshirts used to come primarily in simple colors or with large logos, but now, there are plenty of fun printed ones on the market that are better suited to styling.
