Title says most.

I personally combine both, so I'll wear clothes that look good and feel good.

Most days I'm gonna be lazy and dress for comfort. But I still think style is very important and will have those days where I sacrifice comfort for looks. I either feel good physically when I'm wearing something comfortable or mentally when I'm wearing something that I like looks-wise, so it's a win-win.

I try to combine both as well but if I had to choose one or the other, I would take comfort over style.

It depends on what I'm dressing for and if I'm going out or not. Obviously if I'm going out then looks and if I'm not then comfort.

Comfort for me. ^^;

I tend to be satisfied mentally if I'm comfortable, even if it doesn't look that good. I'll only dress up real nicely for special occasions.
If I don't have to dress up or if I don't feel obligated to, I guess I'm going out in really baggy clothes. ;w;

This basically. I always look presentable for work but I like to be comfortable too. I usually wear a hoodie to work~

I love shorts over leggings but it's way too cold for that now :c..

I need a new winter coat because my old one is way too big for me now.

I would only focus on appearance for a job interview. Otherwise, I avoid vanity to the greatest extent possible.

Unless I absolutely need to look good for something, then...comfort. Nearly all the way.

I say "nearly" because if I plan on going out somewhere in public (even up to the store), I try not to look totally mismatched. Even then, it'll merely be a t-shirt and pants/shorts - something nice and easy to wear.

When I go out, looks. I'm sort of self conscious about that stuff. I like to look nice for other people.

When I stay in, comfort obviously.

Not to parrot everyone else, but I try to focus on both. When it comes to shirts and shorts, I go with what's comfortable (not too restricting) but it can't look ratty and shabby, like I'm not trying just a little, though when it comes to shoes I'm really metrosexual about how they look. Of course, I won't go as far as wearing a size three shoe on my size twelve feet just because they look cool.

Oh but when it comes to around the house I wear as little as possible sweatshorts (most of the time) and a loose fitting shirt. xD

I focus more on looks because I feel better when I feel I look better. The clothes that I buy I buy because are already comfortable.

You can really achieve both if you look around enough.

Make a day out of it, go in every store there is (bar nordstrom), try on anything that you like the look/feel of, there's always a hidden gem in there.

I like to look good, cause if I look good, I'll feel good too, like Nick already said. But most of the time, I wake up and don't feel like getting ready and getting dressed so I try to do a kind of thing where I'm dressed down, but still dressed up. Use some accessories and such and nice make up and you got it. I also don't like dressing up on days I don't see my boyfriend, cause you know, I want him to see me looking good haha. Otherwise I feel like it's wasted.

I like wearing clothes that both look good and feel good, though this can be hard. A lot of nice looking clothes arent very comfortable. I prefer wearing comfy clothes like jeans and tea shirts/sweaters, though I try to go for ones that also look good.

Comfort. Though I guess I dont have a choice because I dont care how i look so I just buy comfortable clothes. When I wake up, I just throw on whatever's on top in my drawer.

Ideally, both. Most of the time, though, comfort over looks. Because if I'm going out of the house, usually it's just to go grab some food or do some shopping somewhere. I don't bother to look amazing. Only care about how good I look when I'm going out to actually socialize. It's so rare that overall, comfort is best for me.

I've really got to be more concerned. :(

The only time I would focus on looks is if I had to go to a fancy occasion like a job interview.

Otherwise, I'd focus on comfort, especially me preferring to wear trackpants rather than jeans. Comfy clothes always look nice on me.

Looks, always looks. If I'm not going anywhere people will see me why not run around in my undies?

Both, really. I'm a fashionista most of the time, and I won't wear anything unless it's comfortable. It's as simple as that.

I try to look good, but I hate clothes shopping and most of the clothes I own are nerdy T-shirts and either jeans or shorts that will go with any T-shirt I pick out. I very rarely dress "up" so I guess overall I'd say comfort.

I don't think I look "bad" though, I just don't make that much of an effort.

This is how I feel. I feel comfortable when I look nice. I don't totally disregard comfort though. I try to be as comfortable as I can without sacrificing how I look.

But some days I just don't care how I look. Those are the days when I don't want to be around people though so maybe I still do.

I go for both looks and comfort whenever I dress myself up.

Right now I'm all into big hoodies and skinny jeans.

I like fashion, but I'm really ehh about it too. It's a love-hate thing.
