There’s nothing wrong with comfy clothes
Comfy shouldn’t be a dirty word. But in fashion it can be viewed as a bit of a put-down, a derogatory label. Comfy clothes are reserved for children and old people; the relaxed aesthetic worn by middle-aged women referred to as Menocore (‘Picture a 50-something-year-old woman who doesn’t care what other people think and just wants to be supremely comfortable.’ Thank you, Man Repeller). Why can’t we revel in the pressure of a no-stress, faff-free outfit? There’s nothing wrong with the concept of comfy – of feeling good in a particular outfit, of dressing to please yourself, who doesn’t want that? Comfy clothing needs a re-brand.
