We humans have been clothing our bodies for at least 100,000 years (you read that right) to protect ourselves from the harsh elements. We all know the joy of snuggling up in comfortable clothes when the wind is howling outside of course.
What we wear impacts the way we feel and thus the way we think, the way we act, and the way we interact with others.
Enclothed Cognition, like those in lab coats call it (see what we did there?) is the term used to describe the way our behaviors change based on what we think and feel about what we wear. Studies show we even behave in ways that can mirror the tone of what we’re wearing. For example, those dressed all in black or dark colors may have a more serious and demure approach to the day and those in comfy jeans may ooze laid back vibes. That's why office wear is so geared towards making people feel firm and upright rather than just letting lawyers turn up in loungewear.
You’ve heard the phrase 'dress for success'; but we say that success is embracing your best self and as it turns out, that's when we feel at our most authentic and when we are feeling comfortable. Comfortable doesn't always need to mean slouching about in pajamas or legging combo, it can also mean wearing a cute maxi dress or shirt that makes you feel amazing. When you’re dressed in clothes that you feel comfortable in you are more likely to feel creative, friendly, and generally better about yourself.
It's also worth noting that the idea of comfort can even go beyond the benefits of a pair of sweats with elastic waist. It's also about finding clothes that provide a high quality fabric, a solid price point, and brands that you know haven't been using cheap labor to produce pieces for your closet.
The flip side of the Psychology of Fashion (that’s a real thing) is that if you wear items that are uncomfortable, you will simply not feel your best. Wearing clothes that are ill-fitting (we’ve all been stuck in a too-tight outfit all night), too constricting, made from itchy fabric or otherwise uncomfortable will limit your mobility, distract you, and most importantly make you feel less than your best. And our new mantra 'Dress as your best self' will not allow for that.
“Luxury should be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.” Coco Chanel
This isn’t meant as a free pass to wear your sweatpants everywhere unless that is literally how you feel your best in which case, stack up on those lush loungewear sets girl.
But there is a way to blend being cozy with staying stylish.
Whether you pair a cozy sweater with your favorite mom jeans and boots or if you don that sweet flowing midi dress or cotton shorts with a vintage t-shirt, you will immediately start to shift your thinking and step into ownership of your body. And when you feel comfortable in your clothes, others can sense that too, creating a more positive environment for everyone.
Choosing comfy clothes will improve your confidence and allow you to place more energy on whatever it is you’re doing in them, from working to eating to sleeping. So reach for clothes that make you feel empowered, confident, and your best self.
And P.S. If you’re feeling blue, put on something comfy in a bright color; it’s been proven to boost your mood!
With great shipping, awesome reviews, and products that have been perfected based on customers needs, take a look at these items from our online store that are sure to change the way you think about comfort and style.
