Putting together an outfit to wear for when you're riding public transportation is a challenge in itself. Dealing with the crowded trains, chasing bus schedules and so on means that you need to dress up in a way that won't restrict movement. More often than not, we choose the very comfy but quite plain tee and denim combo. But believe us when we say that the chicness factor in our outfits doesn't have to be compromised when we're commuting. There are plenty of ensembles that are as cute as they are functional. Ahead, some stylish commuter outfit ideas from the Clozette Community that you can easily cop.
Wear a bold third piece
There's no easier way to upgrade the tee and denim look than to add eye-catching outerwear to an otherwise plain ensemble. Bonus points if you match it with the print on your shirt like Clozette Ambassador Qi Yun! Add some statement earrings and go for textured pants or shoes and you'll get a much more interesting outfit in an instant.
Choose cute loose fabrics
Loose tops with unique features like chiffon sleeves, cute buttons or a nice print is a great option for commuter fashion. Take it from Clozette Ambassador Karen and match it with a pair of semi-loose pants that has a fitted hem to streamline your look so you won't lose your figure despite wearing various loose pieces.
Yes, there are some disadvantages to wearing rompers like the need to bare it all whenever you take a trip to the loo. But there's no denying that it's a comfortable and super chic outfit that's very easy to slip into in the morning. The best thing about rompers is that it even looks better when paired with sensible footwear. It's truly a stylish commuter outfit! Do it like Clozette Ambassador Lingwei and look for a single colour romper with an elegant cut.
Go for a maxi dress
You will be surprised by how comfortable maxi dresses are for commuting. They're not restricting and are very breathable so you can stay cool even with the high humidity. Be inspired by Clozette Ambassador Adele and match an ethereal maxi dress with a sophisticated pair of slingbacks for maximum comfort and style.
Try tube tops
Tube tops are slowly coming back in vogue right now! Try this emerging trend as your stylish commuter outfit. Look to Clozetter Shermaine and wear it with a linen blazer for added coverage so you won't feel too cold while riding air-conditioned buses or trains.
