Comfort Dressing

As in comfort food, there is something so satisfying about comfort dressing. We can decorate ourselves to the max when planning a night out. But at the end of the day, most of the time, it's all about comfort dressing. What's better than a pair of camel pants, turtleneck, flats and cashmere cardigan. Not only is this comfort dressing, it's investment dressing. Styles that never fade, just get tweaked over the years.
a note from a NYT article follows:
"Maybe the roll-neck sweater, mannish pants and camel coat are too closely associated with a white, Anglo-Saxon America to seem appropriate to a diverse modern culture. British women in the 1960s turned their backs on the Burberry trench coat, the sweater set and the kilt because they seemed like symbols of an old, class-ridden society. Yet when it comes to choosing an outfit, aren’t women the world over more likely to find fashion comfort in a skirt and jacket than in a statement dress with a built-in bra?"
So true!
