Practical Fashion: What Does it Mean?
Dressing fashionably and comfortably is something that people all over the world have been striving for for a very long time, but is it really as difficult as it seems?
When we see fashion shows on our TV screens, it’s often easy to see why many people believe that being fashionable means sacrificing practicality, especially in tight fitting clothes and uncomfortable looking shoes.
However, here at Kit and Kaboodal, we think that it is possible to dress fashionably and still be practical at the same time. So, what does practical fashion actually entail?
It Doesn’t Interfere with Your Daily Life
One of the main benefits of practical fashion is that is still looks great without interfering with how you go about your daily life.
Unlike some fashion choices, such as high heeled shoes or tight, short skirts which hinder your ability to move around and reduce the range of movement that you have, practical fashion will allow you to do whatever you want without creating an issue.
Our Made In Italy Freya 2 Printed Tunic Dress is a great example of a stylish yet practical garment. It is light and flowing, meaning that there is no movement restriction while still giving an attractive, flattering fit when worn.
It Still Gives a Sense of Occasion
Many people believe that practical fashion is quite bland and boring, but we know that definitely isn’t the case.
Just because an outfit is comfortable to wear, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be formal or even casual if it needs to be. In fact, the more comfortable you feel in your outfit, the happier you will feel when wearing it!
Whether you’re looking for an outfit for a special occasion or simply an every day garment that you can wear on a daily basis, practicality doesn’t have to mean boring, just take a look at our Made In Italy Tintagel Linen Top as an example! It is stylish and practical while maintaining an elegant look – perfect for both a more sophisticated look and a casual every day style, too!
Adequate for the Weather or Climate
Practicality of clothing can also refer to how well it is suited for specific weather or climate conditions.
Some clothing garments are more suited to warmer weather, whereas some are more practical for the colder months. To dress practically, it’s important to judge whether the clothing that you are wearing is suited to the weather that you are currently experiencing.
For example, thicker winter jumpers simply aren’t a practical for the warmer winter months as they will cause you to sweat and possibly overheat, whereas thinner garments aren’t suited to the colder winter months as they don’t provide enough protection from the cold weather.
Make sure you are dressing adequately for the weather and we guarantee you’ll not only feel more comfortable, you’ll feel much happier, too!
