Comfort is Key

People have been rocking the comfort/sporty trend like crazy. I noticed the trend in late 2010, it became increasingly popular through 2011, and I'm sure it'll stay ontop in 2012. The average woman is drawn to clothing that is both easy to wear and stylish.

Even though I would probably choose style over comfort any day, it's impossible to hate a trend that keeps you cozy without sacrificing your sense of fashion.
From some of the top magazines, here are ways you can nail this convenient and chic trend.

Glamour - Dec. 2011
  • The Basics: sweatshirt, bling, and a wild color and/or luxe fabric
  • An easy sweatshirt, frilly skirt, and a few key accessories; slip on comfy shoes and a chain link bag (it's all about contrast; metal strap gives a tough edge)
Seventeen - Oct. 2011
  • Sweater & boyfriend jeans: make a comfy look cooler with a slip of shoulder and a cute beanie
Selena Gomez

Cosmo - Nov. 2011
  • Scrunch the sleeves of a sweater to add shape. It's cute with ankle boots and a miniskirt or skinny pants
Kate Bosworth

Glamour - Nov. 2011
  • Super thick knits with a flouncy skirt or skinnies
  • An oversize neutral chunky knit never goes out of style
  • Pair a thick knit with a body-hugging piece. Balance out a fitted skirt with a softer-fitting and feeling sweater.
