Comfort Dressing is like comfort food
It’s nothing special, it might even be a bit bland and boring, but sometimes it’s the only thing you want. Because when you’re exhausted by all the complicated issues that life throws at you, you just want to ground yourself in something easy and familiar.
In clothing terms, this means getting back to basics; wrapping yourself in soft shades and simple forms, and focusing on how clothes feel on your skin instead of how they make you look.
These are clothes that make you feel good: they don’t try to impress anyone but just let you be. Without trying too hard or without thinking too much. Comfort dressing is like a cosy old blanket, protecting you from the big bad world and its uncertainties and endless demands.
It also helps you hide the evidence of having had perhaps a little too much comfort (the food variety) lately, which doesn’t hurt either…

Have you been dipping into comfort dressing (or comfort food) lately?
PS: There’s a new Dilettante Artist post, another Pop Art selfie.
I’ve been doing a lot of drawing lately; it’s my version of meditation, I guess.
