When dressing yourself, do you focus more on looks or comfort?

    When I'm going to work or somewhere fancy I go for looks. Everyday and school I go for comfort I love basketball shorts, skate shoes, and hoodies.

      Comfort matters most, as long as it still looks good. Would you rather look "sexy" in something you'd be uncomfortable in or just be you and be comfortable?

      Yeah, I thought so xD

        Try to take both if possible but if absolutely necessary I will choose style over comfort.
        I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
        Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
        I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
        But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
        So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

        Comfort, definitely. Most of my clothes are just t-shirts and jeans so generally while I won't look very nice, I don't really have to worry about coordinating styles and colours all that much. I just don't buy things that aren't comfortable unless it's for a formal occasion and I don't attend very many of those. Every job I've had has also been casual wear or uniformed so I just have to worry about presenting myself in class and to friends/roommates which isn't too terribly high on my priority list. :P

        I buy and wear clothes that are comfortable for me. But, at the same time I try to pick stuff that looks good, or that I think I look good in, etc. Comfort is priority but it doesn't detract from look

        Comfort. I'll at least try to look decently nice/match when I'm going out but otherwise as long as I have a shirt and some sort of bottoms I'm good. Only time I go for looks or try to at least be more towards the middle is when there is a special occasion that I have to attend.

            Comfortable shorts, comfortable T-Shirt, no shoes and my fedora like hat. That's for at home or wandering around town or if I'm going somewhere where it's not formal. Work or formal places, Black Jeans, Black or White Shirt, Blue........trainer things (we call them Tekkies here in SA). I dress mainly for comfort but do occasionally wear more formal clothes.

              Always comfort. I pretty much live in pajamas unless I have to go out and then it's just a t-shirt, jeans, and hoodie.

              always comfort
              i don't like wearing uncomfortable clothes but it also depends on what I'm dressing for and if I'm going out or not

                Both, though honestly I'm a huge fashion diva so I try to emphasize more on looks than anything else. u_u I like to look good wherever I am, so yeah!

                  Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

                  Comfort is queen, though you'll never find me in anything unstylish because it's comfortable. I would never wear sweat pants unless it's yoga time partly because I feel it would be hypocritical to wear sweat pants when I think they are ugly on others.

                  This is double for me being a larger woman - because I don't want my stomach poking out or anything like that - I want to be classy instead of featured on People of Walmart, so it's about finding that balance.

                  Love is the Law, Love under Will.

                  Comfort unless I'm going to some fancy event or something, which is about the only time I'll actually dress myself up nice.

                  I've never been big on fashion for myself, even if I do make sure my original trainer characters are dressed for success

                  vainvainvain I am so vain. I want to look in the mirror and think- that chick is banginggggg, so when I am leaving my house I always try and look good!

                  I would NEVER wear trackpants in public. The only people that can get away with this are professional athletes/people off to play sport. Otherwise, no deal. I try and wear more high-waisted skirts/shorts, because they make my legs look longer... I can't remember the last time I wore jeans, and I regularly have to adjust my skirt because I went for style over comfort hahaha. No big deal though, because looking good feels good haha.

                  Both. I dress mainly for comfort but I do care about my appearance too; I never leave the house without having showered and I try my best not to look scruffy but equally I don't really care what I'm wearing as long as it's presentable. I spend most of my time around town or around campus though and there's always a natural urge to impress other people of your age, so I do dress up sometimes just in case. ;)

                    Comfort, I am that kind of person who will wear anything that is comfortable, even to the extent to wearing a shirt with many holes in it just because its comfortable to me because I've been wearing that shirt for years already.

                    But really, any clothes will feel comfortable once you are used wearing to it.

                    Not sure if it falls under comfort or looks. I just wear what I want to wear, as long as it's clean I will wear it. Pants or Shorts, socks, shoes. For shirt it depends on my mood - either metal music band t-shirts or soccer jerseys. Leather jacket if its cold.

                    Quite a bit of both really. Depending on how uncomfortable the clothes are, I'm very likely to change into something else, although that only really count for clothes that are getting too small, since I won't really buy any kind of clothes that I don't feel comfortable in either. But yeah, I go for just a little decency in looks too, since I don't want to leave the house looking terrible either.

                    I try to go for both, myself. When shopping for clothes, I try to pick clothes I like, that are also comfortable, so I don't have to worry much when choosing what to wear.

                    Then it all just comes down to what clothes are appropriate for where I go/what I'm doing.

                    I focus both on looks and comfort. If I don't look good, I don't feel good. If I don't feel good, I almost certainly won't look good. Comes hand in hand.

                    When I am at home and I ain't doing anything for the day, I will just wear comfortable pants, not jeans and a t-shirt or something.
                    Depending on where I am going when I go out, I will dress accordingly, but I don't own anything that can be considered 'not comfortable', just smart.

                    I always wear jeans, even when it is summer. I generally don't find them uncomfortable and they are good at keeping my legs warm during the winter. I never cared much for looks though, but I always dress nicely in case I need to go somewhere.

                    Always comfort, no matter where I go. Looks is just an option for me. If I'm comfortable and look my best in them, I'll go like that. I'd rather not wear super-tight clothing just to look awesome.

                    I'm weird... I go for comfortable stuff, but it looks good on me too. Only problem? A lot of my clothes are from years ago and out of fashion but they make me look good and comfortable. However, I have issues with shirts because my bras always show no matter what shirts I wear and I fiddle with my shirts and (no it's not the shorts it's like my body idek) then they end up uncomfortable lmao. :x
