Quite a while ago, I came across a retweet from Yani that said:-
RT @annadellorusso: If u like to be relaxed,u will never get the LOOK. Fashion is always UNCOMFORTABLE!
Made me ponder.
Its no wonder I’m not “fashionable” because I value comfort in my dressing over everything else 😛
So I don’t wear gorgeous 4 inch high shoes because I know I can’t walk properly in them and they give my feet (and back) hell. I believe those early years of wearing pointy toed heels have given me bunions the size of tennis balls! 😛
I didn’t wear skinny jeans for ages because I couldn’t find any that would allow me to sit down comfortably and importantly, allow me to breathe!
I don’t wear silk scarves no matter how elegant they make one look because I find them fiddly.
Yet I find myself disagreeing with the statement because I believe fashion can be comfortable – it all depends on your personal style of fashion! Who’s to say we have to be dictated by the runway or mags eh? 😉
Speaking of the runway, the picture above and below are from the Dior Cruise collection for 2011 and I thought that they look very wearable. Fashionable but imminently comfortable. Very possibly duped too for much less – just watch the high street brands in the coming collections 🙂
I love the touches of lace on the suit on the far right picture above. But my eyes were first drawn to the yellow Lady Dior (but of course! 😛 )
I like the 2 floaty silk chiffon dresses in the middle and on the right! They look classic and very comfortable. I’d love to pick up something similar at a more affordable price tag so I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled. 🙂
The 1st picture on the left is for LeGeeque – see the pink LD? 😉
So on a personal note, I don’t quite agree with the statement that fashion is always uncomfortable. I’ll just pick out the comfortable trends and follow those instead and if I can’t, well I’ll just have to make my own fashion! 😉
What about you?
