We all experience that dreaded time of the month when you feel like you weigh 3x your actual weight, you’re craving a pretzel but also some fudge, you have a headache, it’s hot, and everyone is breathing loudly. The clothes that fit just a few days ago now fit all weird, and you’re even more sweaty because all of these wardrobe changes feel like a workout. Here are a few comfy yet stylish outfit options to wear during that time of the month!
Maxi or Midi Dress (Better Yet, of the T-Shirt Variety)
Oversized clothing can always be chic. Try wearing a flowing maxi, midi, or T-shirt dress with a pair of slip-on sandals or mules and statement earrings, and you’ll be ready to take on the day in comfort.
If a maxi or midi dress isn’t your idea of comfort, opt for a baggy (yet stylish) jumpsuit that won’t add extra pressure to your stomach. Wear it with a T-shirt underneath, Birkenstocks, and a vintage bandana around your neck.
When you’re feeling the ick all over, it’s a great time to bust out a matching set, which can serve major looks when worn with a pair of old-school sneakers and delicate jewelry. This is the perfect, comfy cozy ’fit if you have to leave the house — when you would much rather plant yourself on your couch with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s!
You had to know leggings were on our list: They’re stretchy and hold in our guts. We like to wear ours with an oversized tee, a pair of white Vans, and an oversized denim jacket for the ultimate cozy ensemble to wear to class, brunch, or the local drugstore to grab some ibuprofen, chips, and cookies.
