Fashion doesn’t have to hurt. You heard me! There are lots of ways to be stylish while staying comfortable and I’m going to share some of my tricks with you. Because let’s face it, suffering while you wear trendy shoes and clothing just isn’t fun. As a woman who loves fashion yet is also always on-the-go, comfort is key.
Whether it’s a cozy sweater or a luxurious scarf, I like to sneak comfort into my everyday style. And the same goes for the shoes I wear.
You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your ability to walk with ease (I’m looking at you, 5 inch stiletto heels) in order to be stylish. Shapes, texture, colour, and design are other worthy characteristics of a beautiful shoe – and those are the criteria I focus on when choosing a pair that are both fabulous and comfortable.
The new ECCO SHAPE Collection offers cutting-edge, minimalist designs that have direct injected PU throughout the shoe to provide a truly comfortable shock-absorbing footbed. Style and comfort? You got it!
ECCO’s new SHAPE collection has beautiful styles that are elegant, sleek and sexy. In fact they also possess a secret; the ECCO SHAPE shoe is designed with a rounded heel and footbed, which lets your foot sit more comfortably and closer to the ground. What looks like a 90mm heels, feels like a cushiony 75mm. Shhhh, no one has to know.
Little adjustments like that go a long way in providing daily comfort, while still being on trend and fashionable. I have my heart on a few pairs from this line that will be a perfect addition to my fall wardrobe.
Along with some stylish and comfortable outfit ideas that I put together to pair with the ECCO SHAPE collection, I’m sharing a few of my best tips to stay comfy this season.
While layers are right on trend, they are also the perfect way to feel extra cozy. Begin with a sleeveless top, add a lightweight blouse, and complete the look with a cardigan or blazer. Bonus: you can modify your outfit during the day if the weather changes from cold to hot or vice versa.
I’m a big fan of the boyfriend look. Boyfriend jeans, boyfriend shirt, boyfriend cardigan – it’s all about comfort. Now pair this style with snakeskin heels, a statement necklace and a flirty perfume and you’ve got yourself a very chic outfit for casual Fridays.
Jersey knit is one of my favourite fabrics. It’s incredibly soft and stretchy, with a lovely drape. Do yourself a favour and pick up a few wardrobe staples in this fabric, like a long sleeve, ¾ length day dress or a jersey knit blazer. Both of which will look professional and dressy, while being incredibly comfortable. These black snakeskin pumps with the lace flourish gives this a distinctly feminine look.
ECCO offers shoe-lovers accessible premium shoes with Scandinavian design and as you can see, these comfortable shoes are NOT frumpy, they are refined and exquisite. Take a look at the full ECCO SHAPE Collection online: http://bit.ly/ECCObotl1 , you’ll thank me later.
