How to dress comfy-chic

Jessica Alba, Reese Witherspoon and many other stars always manage to look adorable, even when they are dressed casually. But celebrities aren't the only ones who can master the comfy-chic look. With these style tips, you can look effortlessly cute, comfortable and stylish.

1Comfy spring fashionPajama dressing

When shopping for clothes, consider the fabrics. Look for garments made from silk, cotton, linen and chiffon. One of the hottest trends from the runways at Spring 2011 Fashion Week is pajama dressing. This style works well for both daytime and evening wear. Roomy silk pants and loose tops offer a sexy fit that is comfortable and laidback.

2Rompers

Rompers were popular last summer and they are back again in 2011. The romper is easy to wear because it's just one piece. You can wear a romper to lounge around at home or hang out with friends. Rompers have a youthful appeal that isn't for everyone, but they are definitely comfortable and cute. Check out these five adorable rompers for under $70.

3The right jeans

Everyone needs one fantastic fitting pair of jeans. Jeans shouldn't be so tight that you need to lay down on your bed to zip them up. Shop for jeans that look good and feel good. Not Your Daughter's Jeans offers a variety of styles (straight leg, bootcut, skinny, flare, cropped and more) made from soft, stretchy denim. What's great about these jeans is that they have a hidden panel that flattens your tummy and lifts your rear end, so they aren't just comfortable, they also make you look thinner.

Check out the video below to find the perfect jeans for your body type.

4Spring comfy fashionMaxi dresses

A few years ago, the maxi dress roared onto the fashion scene courtesy of Angelina Jolie and it's been a staple for women around the world since. These long dresses flatter any figure, come in fantastic prints and are oh, so comfortable. Everyone looks chic and feels comfy in a maxi dress. This season, shop for maxi dresses in nautical stripes, pretty polka dots and tribal prints.

5Wedge sandals

No matter what you are wearing, an ill-fitting pair of shoes or sky-high heels can ruin your day. You don't need to squeeze your feet into pointy-toe pumps or put on a pair of 5-inch heels to look cute. Wedge sandals are really trendy right now and so much more comfortable than skinny stilettos. Because your weight is distributed over a larger surface area with the wedge, less stress is put on your feet. For 2011, flatform wedge sandals are popular. These shoes have a wedge heel and platform sole that are equal in height, so that your foot remains flat.

When shopping for new clothes, don't just buy whatever looks hot on the hanger. Keep our shopping suggestions in mind in order to build a wardrobe that is both comfortable and cute.
