The Science of Style - The Problem with Dressing Comfortably | The Science of Style

2124 ratings | 58180 views
I just want to be comfortable! If I had a dollar for every time someone said that to me! I get it no one wants to be uncomfortable but these days comfort typically means sweatpants or some sort of heinous legging. Dressing up makes you more internally motivated. Dressing down does not. If you want to get fired up, you need to take off those damn sweats. Dressing up shows the ability to step up, to expose yourself, and a willingness to feel good. ** All TV and movie clips are borrowed for the educational purposes of this video** Style Freebies: Ultimate Wardrobe Checklist for Women: http://laurenmessiah.com/ultimate-wardrobe-checklist  ‘How To Dress Right For Your Body Type’ :  http://laurenmessiah.com/body-type-ebook  SUBSCRIBE for pro fashion tips, insider trends and new videos: http://bit.ly/1N7xVjn Connect with me on social media: Visit the Lauren Messiah WEBSITE: http://bit.ly/1wCjCxF Like me on FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/LaurenMessiah Follow me on TWITTER: http://bit.ly/1Tm2ruM Follow me on INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/1L4iGZ4 Follow me on PINTEREST: http://bit.ly/1WfU0Ah About me: I am a fashion expert, on-camera talent and a premiere personal fashion stylist in Los Angeles.

I have been following you for a very long time and this is the first time I strongly disagree with the message you are delivering. You could wear super cool sweatpants and sneakers, simple accessories and jewelry, makeup and hair done to look as put together as in any other put-together-looks. Also, you have always to take into consideration the fact that there are people like me that see themselves way better in sports clothes rather than in any other kind of clothes. It is not about what others think, it is not about being sloppy. It is about how I feel in my sports clothes, and I just love it.

Oh Dear!!! How I agree with you! With EVERY SINGLE WORD!!!

I think you're spot on that people DO judge no matter what. Yes it would be nice if everyone could get away with dressing sloppily comfortable. I work in an infant classroom at a daycare, so I have to think carefully about what I wear. I get baby formula dripped on me, food spilled, drooled on, sometimes even peed on if I'm not careful changing a diaper, so unfortunately I can't be wearing high end and uncomfortable clothes when I spend so much time sitting on the floor, bending over, etc. But at the same time, when parents drop off their babies they need to look at me and feel confident that they're leaving their child with a responsible, competent adult. Our appearance is the first impression people get of us. Not all of us have the luxury of not caring what that first impression is.

Comfortable does not mean frumpy 🤷🏼‍♀️ you can look polished and cute if you know what items to put together and keep your hair and makeup/and or skincare looking right! I love being comfy and won’t by clothes that are uncomfortable!
Emily Orriginal (6 months ago)
This video is kinda ableist as hell. Not everyone can wear jeans or clothes that YOU may deem comfortable... For example, I have fibromyalgia and allodynia and have not found a single pair of comfortable jeans that don’t give me a pain flare up. I can’t wear restricting ANYTHING. Just because I don’t want to be in fucking pain, doesn’t mean I don’t care about my appearance or that I’m lazy. Also very very few lower priced and accessible clothing brands exist. Not to mention the clothes usually aren’t cute. I genuinely don’t understand how you can do a “combat style shaming” video and then also post garbage like this shaming a whole bunch of people??

Where’s the video about comfy & cute?
Samantha Main (7 months ago)
I've been thinking about this for a while cause you've brought this up in other videos. I really think the way you dress really depends on where you live, in your environment. In LA in sweats you probably don't look so good compared to everyone else. I, on the other hand live in Maine where it is a cold climate and most people own sweats, most people here where them to the store. I do believe if you dress up you do feel better about yourself but dressing for comfortability and the way you dress up really depends on where you are.

This isn't talking about problems of dressing comfortably; more about dressing appropriately. You can dress appropriately and comfortably. Just find the right fit and material. If you don't find it in store then get it tailored. Title is a bit misleading.
Amarilys Galarza (9 months ago)
Couldn’t agree more!!! As a legal assistant in PR I learned that the way I dressed not only had an in impact on the clients (and lawyers) it also has an impact on the way I feel and conduct. Being well dressed makes me feel confident, empowered and productive.
Rosanna Rosanna (9 months ago)
I would like to say something about the topic at hand but guys, I'm from Italy, I doubt I ever saw anyone in sweats in public unless they had to go to the gym. And I'd say I dress comfortably, I never feel uncomfortable in my daily clothes, and I spend my whole day out every day 🙃
Rosanna Rosanna (9 months ago)
I want to clarify: there's a lot of people wearing leggings, often ugly ones with terrible patterns, even see-through ones. I don't exactly live in Milan where everyone looks like they came out of a magazine. BUT we would never wear sweats in public, I see people bringing jeans to change into after going to the gym when the gym is literally a two minutes walk away from their place.

Great message! Small suggestion: just include the source of the study/studies you choose to cite for future reference; it'd be nice to have.

You dont always have to be all dressed up to feel good. If you’re just lounging around at home on a rainy day curled up on your couch watching a movie or reading a good book, a comfy pair of sweat shorts, a tshirt, socks & a hair bun would make you feel just as good.
myfav0s2012 (10 months ago)
If you’re confident & feel good about yourself, you can make any outfit feel comfortable
Klaudia Toporowska (10 months ago)
Some people don’t care how people look at you. Yes I do think differently about myself. I start to believe that I will not follow society’s expectations and dress however I want. I know who I am and am comfortable in my skin no matter how I dress. I think we need to stop depending on our clothes to feel beautiful, you are beautiful no matter what you’re wearing, it’s about how you feel that attracts other people, the confidence not always the clothing

I absolutely agree that putting some effort into yourself- especially making sure you have good hygiene- is essential for good mental health, but I would love to hear more constructive "here is how you find clothes that fit & look cute & make you feel good that are also going to move with you and allow you to relax."
Flannibal (10 months ago)
I'll say it once. Dresses, shirts, skirts, jeans, are not as comfy as sweatpants. They're just not. Specially for lazing around. And it's not only a matter of physical discomfort, I may feel ok in my dress when I'm out but the moment I put a feet in my house I need to get out of it, take out my bra, and put on something soft, and cozy, and comfortable, like: sweatpants and a hoodie. If you're laying on the sofa with a dress it rides up, and you're pulling it down, and in some part of your brain you still think you have to look good, same with shirts.
Berdien de Wilde (10 months ago)
I agree with you. If you are willing to search for the right clothing stores with the right clothing, you can buy for example a jeans as comfortable as a sweatpants. (I have them, in my closet, no joke, its possible.) Sometimes you have to spend a bit more money, but it is worth it. I mean, who doesn't want to feel good and look good. (take a look at Uniqlo for example, they have perfect comfi clothing that will still make you look amazing). If you look like you have everything put together, you will get more confidence, because every time you look in te mirror, you see a nice, good looking person smiling back at you. (And yes this is also for men. When men don't put any effort in their looks, I think they look lazy as well.) Of course, nothing wrong with lazy Sundays. But please don't think that looking good and feeling comfortable are two different things. You can still look amazing on your workdays and feeling comfi at the same time, just invest and search for the right clothing. It's possible for me as a student :D

Never go to Europe wearing sweatpants outside, let alone France. Even at University, you will never see anyone in sweats especially women. Wearing sweatpants is seen as lower class and dirty.
Luisa (11 months ago)
Uhm what? Don't know about France but in Italy I see (young) people in sweatpants at university (and everywhere else) all the time. There are sweatpants and sweatpants. Some are ugly af but some are nice quality and cool if you know how to style them. Definitely nobody wears them at formal occasions but I've never heard someone say sweatpants are "lower class". It sounds like something only a stuck-up bourgeois would say.
Laidi Kirsta (11 months ago)
What about people that, due to disabilities/illnesses, can barely tolerate wearing clothes at all? I know about the research showing that dressing up makes you feel better about yourself, and I agree that it's largely true. But due to several chronic problems, every kind of pressure from clothes hurts a lot on me. That leggings are a thing now is the best thing that's happened in my wardrobe for many years, since it means that I'm no longer limited to baggy, oversized jeans. I also have a very non-standard body type, so it's very difficult for me to find clothes at all, and then they also have to be tolerable painwise. So while I understand your point, I think you're quite aggressive about it and that you completely disregard that there can be other reasons why people can't always be dressed up. We're not all just too lazy to make an effort, and it's not always super easy to find something both comfortable AND classy. So here's a constructive suggestion: make a video about how to "not dress like a slob" if you have any kind of chronic pain problems. Talk to someone who has fibromyalgia, MS, IBS, a back/back injury etc. It might widen your horizons.
Emily Orriginal (6 months ago)
Laidi Kirsta ugh thank you! Just commented something similar
angelstouch (10 months ago)
Thank you!!!! I developed fibromyalgia and have a swallowing disorder that has caused me to lose a tonne of weight. Without drawstrings on trousers I'd be naked because all my clothes end up falling off me and I can't work due to fibromyalgia and so can't afford new clothes every month. My life feels more like survival and I care more about being able to get things done than what someone thinks about me.
Makes sense that someone whos job is invested in clothes would make a video like this. Just a little bias is what Im saying. #shittyclothesmakemehappy
Francesca (11 months ago)
You have to understand that we each live in our own bubble which is our reality, and no two realities are the same. In the end, clothes are just artificial pieces of fabric that cover our natural nudity. They can trick us into associating character traits with our imagined identity. But identity is an illusion. Wether you allow this illusion is a choice.

Sometimes I feel my most confident and positive on the weekend when I’m wearing a hoodie and trainers. However, if I wore this to work I would feel crappy
KisekiRose (11 months ago)
This is such a great video! Dressing for yourself and for motivation gives me more encouragement to continue the style I have rather than wearing the college uniform (no shorts look). The study was a unique addition to the case against dressing down, but the all the quick cuts to Mean Girls and Seinfeld were a bit distracting. The point was made but it could’ve been more fluid with uninterrupted cuts
plantpals (11 months ago)
As a person who has slight depression/anxiety, dressing nicely and taking care of my appearance has really helped how I feel about myself and life in general (paired with proper treatment ofc).
silvermoon (11 months ago)
are you kidding me? Jeans are never ever as comfortable as sweatpants. That's literally the reason why people wear sweats instead of jeans. Where is the logic? And I don't think we should always be dressed up. Why? It's just more pressure on women so that they live up to the ridiculous standarts that the society has made up. Trust me, you feel so free when you go out without make up in comfy clothes and don't give a fuck. The pressure to look perfect for some strangers is just GONE. YOU ARE FREE.
Azire C (10 months ago)

@Blueberrypie00 triggered is a term used in psychology to explain a state in which people with ptsd (and other) fall after they come in contact with something that reminds them of their trauma and that causes flashbacks. It's pretty ignorant of you to use auch a term just to make fun of internet people. Actually, it's pathetic. Why not invent your own term? Got no creativity? Why be a sheep?

I work from home most of the time too. And I almost always dress up. In fact, i had a contract this week in the nicest corporate building in my city and i'm dressing more casually to fit in with the team of co-workers than I do at home :)
Susie Marvel (11 months ago)
Agreed! I am 54 years old and I have learned a bunch of stuff about self image. Getting dressed AND making your bed really create an environment for getting something accomplished. I have never been a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal but there are ways to be very comfortable with fashion. Take for example the palazzo pant or the shift/wrap dress. Or, how about a cute skirt/tee and cool boots. There are so many ways to get comfortable with fashion! Good advice.
Luisa (11 months ago)
Lol I don't care. I look fabulous in my sweatpants, leather jacket and combat boots. My sweatpants are cool AND comfortable. I don't want to be pretty. I want to be badass, and a cool outfit comprising sweats makes me feel so. Because if some asshole tries to hurt me while I walk down the street, my sweatpants allow me to raise my leg up high and stomp him hard in the balls. I won't make myself vulnerable just to be fashionable.
Royal Dansk (11 months ago)

Spot on! My mum also says that if you dress “comfortably” at home, when you need to dress up you won’t be able to look put together enough. Totally agree that the more you dress up the more you can start to pay attention to accessories and styling you hair etc when it really matters.

Today I'm wearing flannelette pj's. I went to the shops first thing in morning, came home did some gardening, and now I'm eating lunch while still in my flannelette pj's. But their not the pj's I sleep in. Karl has clothing lines that aren't really casual. If he was to say "you can wear sweats." Then people aren't going to buy his clothes.
Amber Curtis (11 months ago)
I took a debate trip with a long charter bus ride. I was comfortable and stylish. I wore solid black sweat pants with pockets BUT (Don't lose faith in me yet Momma Messiah) I wore it with a very styled and tailored red sweater with matching red ballet flats. I was well groomed and got sooo many compliments. It was a comfortable polished look, it was golden✨🌻💛
Nobu Ichida (11 months ago)
Hmmmm. I care far more what I think of me. I will use how I dress as a tactic to “impress’ if it suits me. I know where I want or need to improve. And if I want to feel comfortable so be it. I don’t own sweats. I do have some athleisure and will wear it when I feel like it. And when I do I feel better. Screw what others think. Their opinion doesn’t matter to me.

QUESTION!! I am desperate. What would your advice be for a stay at home mom of an infant? I’ve been doing the “comfortable” thing because a) leggings are great for sitting on the floor and b) I don’t ever go anywhere so I’ve fallen into that “what’s the point” trap. I’m SO tired of feeling like a slob but what goes better with baby barf and crawling around on the floor than slobby clothes?

All about them comfortable clothes! Lol, thanks for reality check. So, I was wondering if you’d do a video on trending colours. Cause I keep seeing mustard yellow everywhere. It’s not a terrible colour, it just seems like it’s everywhere. A sign of the times?
Vani Maduray (11 months ago)
Dressing up for yourself is important, and you're so right about wearing proper clothes even when you're working from home because it does help put you in the right mindset. I can't explain it, but it's true. Comfy clothes are *amazing* but the fit and quality helps take it to the next level (aka wearing it outside). Dark jeans, fitted leggings and loose, pretty tops are comfy as hell but still make a good impression. I firmly believe in finding the balance that's right for you and sticking with what makes you happy!
Monique jackson (1 year ago)
I agree!! I was just telling my mom this a month ago! Every time we would go out she would wear "comfort" jeans, t-shirts with printed logos from some random event and sneakers. My mom just retired and I guess this became her new style. Lol! Where in the past she used to dress up more. So I called her out on it and she said it was just something she wears around the house, but we weren't in the house we were out shopping and going out to eat. After I pointed this out to her a couple of times she got it and changed the way she dressed and where ever we went she started to get compliments on how nice she looked. It made her feel really good about herself after she noticed the difference in the way people saw her. And the clothes she was wearing were still just as comfortable as jeans and a t-shirt.

Hi Lauren, I was smiling inside while listening to you because what you are taking about is a for of the Law Of Attraction. You aligned your self to look representable etc inside and out side. For this reason I stated put you is this level that you don’t care how others convince you otherwise because witnessed internally! Good for you. I believe in the same thinking because I experienced both! Please listen to Lauren, she knows! I do not know her this is the first time ever commenting on her Channel” peace, love and prosperity.

I love this! I've gotten into the habit lately of wearing comfortably because of the environment I'm working in and what is basic
I NEVER leave the appartment with swetpants AT ALL! I dress for my self but allways chic and pulled together! I am florist manager and there for work alot. And I do not understand ppl wearing swets in STORES working! I get pissed off when I get florist student that do not know how to dress for work since they wear swets at school. But I have at one point sent someone home bc of the dresscode beæeing just so bad! I dont care if they dont like anything other then comfy swets. Pisses me off BIG TIME! Rant over😂

Oh ,I love my mom so much. She always made us dress nice when leaving the house. School,doctors office,shopping,no matter where always dressed in Sunday attire. That’s how we called it back then. Sweat pants were only for home. Thanks mum for being such a good role model. This video is on point 👍😎❤️
R Jackson (1 year ago)
I would totally agree with you. I read an article in a magazine that encouraged men to step up their fashion presence in the office. Whereas, in order to pave their way to higher promotions, they are encouraged to dress stylish in order to feel more confident on the job each day. The article continued by stating that that confident feeling should last all day long and should continue at home, at the gym, or even walking around the Safeway... And we don't care who looks at us in our baggy sweatpants...? We need to learn something here ladies. 😎

Pink Pepper (1 year ago)
If you aren't bothered to dress nice, you are telling yourself you aren't worth any better. It also doesn't motivate you to take care of your things. Get a nice bag and you will keep it in pristine condition and you won't need more than one. Get a nice pair of jeans and you sure as hell will be motivated to stay in shape. I don't have the time for mediocre clothes that don't make me look good and feel happy. It's all about personal responsibility.
AhhhsoNeo (1 year ago)
I was always brought up with the idea that taking the time to make yourself look presentable is actually a sign of respect for those around you. That you respect them enough to brush your teeth and put on clean clothes as good manners. Caring about yourself shows that you care about others. Plus looking like a slob only encourages others to treat you as a slob.
Pink Pepper (1 year ago)
It shows you have the bare minimum amount of self control. If you are a mess on the outside, imagine the mess on the inside.
Susan Howe (1 year ago)
I am sooo influenced by what I wear. We have done a tree change and moved to the country in Australia. Yes we have kangaroos in our yard. . I still need to make an effort in what I am wearing going out the door, or staying at home. I do wear sweats in the morning, just out of bed, but cannot stay that way all day. Need to put on makeup and dress. Wear jeans every day, but not boring ones. Have a collection of distressed skinny jeans. Jewellery, shoes/boots, jackets to make the outfits work. 62 years old, semi retired, but care what I wear. Thanks for the confirming for me that it is ok for this to be important and at any age. Cheers from Oz
The Pedantic Planner (1 year ago)
Couldn't agree more. I have an example from my student days. I was dressed for a job interview. I was wearing an Ann Taylor houndstooth blazer in dark green and black (this was in 1991). I popped into a shop to buy a drink before the interview. The two ladies there were gushing over this blazer and gave me many compliments. I chatted a bit and went to the interview. After the interview, I ducked into a washroom to change my clothes for my trip back to my university. I wore old jeans and a t-shirt. I went back to the same shop to get some snacks for the trip. The same two ladies were there. Guess what, they didn't recognise me! I was studying psychology so I wasn't surprised by their behaviour. Moral of the story : Clothes make the woman! BTW I got the job!
