Fashion Forward... And Comfortable!

Happy weekend, Barbizon of Akron! Now that school is in session, we know that some of you are wanting to trade in style for comfort... We get it! No one wants to feel uncomfortable for eight hours a day, no matter how great you look! But good news, we've found these fashionably chic pieces that are so comfy, you may want to start wearing them as pajamas!

Oversized Sweaters- The ultimate curl-up-with-a-good-book-by-the-fire attire, oversized sweaters are absolutely a staple for autumn. To avoid the just-rolled-out-of-bed look, however, you should shop for sweaters with girly embellishments or jazz up a simple sweater with a statement necklace.

Rompers- If a onesie is your idea of snuggly, please ditch the plaid PJs for day and rock a rad romper
instead. Think lightweight, silky and cotton jumpsuits that feature a relaxed fit and are perfect for lounging in. Pair yours with some pretty pumps and a tailored blazer for the best in both comfort and style!

Harem Pants- Harem pants are about as comfy cozy as they come. They come in all prints, patterns, colors and fabrics for fall. Don a tucked-in tank or tee with a fitted jacket thrown on over top to pull together a cutting-edge outfit that's anything but pajama-like... You know, except in comfort.

Leggings- Not only do leggings boast an elastic waistband, which is amazing in and of itself, but nowadays many brands are incorporating stretch in their skinny jeans as well so you can look dressed to the nines at anytime. Remember to style yours with a long blouse or chambray shirt that hits right below the widest part of your hips/ butt/ thighs for a slimming effect.

Big T-shirts- Oversized tees aren't just meant to be worn to bed anymore; they're now a fashion statement all their own. Take a hint from all the cool girls though, and make sure you wear yours with something tight on the bottom to balance things out a bit. You don't want to look like you're literally drowning in clothes.
