How to Style a Comfy Shopping Outfit: Ageless Style Linkup

Hi Everyone, as you know once again it’s the first Tuesday of the month so welcome to  the November Ageless Style theme:  How to style a comfy shopping outfit!

Nine ladies, showcase their version of this theme in their ageless style. It’s always exciting to see what each of them come up with. We never share photos beforehand so it’s a complete surprise to us all – I love the fact that we all come up with something so different and end up inspiring each other in new fashion directions.

The linkup is at the end of this post so make sure you stay tuned 😉

I don’t know about you but when it comes to weekends – which is when I do most of my shopping – I have so many other things on my mind that there’s not much room to think about what i’m going to wear.

Here a few pictures of one of my favourite shopping looks followed by 5 tips for creating your own great shopping outfit.


What I wore last weekend.



How to Style a Comfy Shopping Outfit

How to Style a Comfy Shopping Outfit

5 simple tricks to pulling together the perfect, stylish yet comfy shopping outfit:

1. Comfy Shoes

How would you be able to walk very far without them? I find myself “still” wearing my white high top sneakers – so super comfy and they simply go with everything. Mine are from Nude of Scandinavia.

Shop the look:


2. Skinny Trousers

Trousers are just so much easier than anything else when trying on clothing. They also eliminate the hassle of having to locate appropriate tights in your drawer. Skinny trousers have the added advantage of looking good with almost any top. Leather (or faux leather) skinnies are particularly in trend right now.

Shop the look:


3. Layers

Every Fall/Winter shopping outfit has to be around layers – going right down to the basic t-shirt in case a shop gets really hot. I tend to start with a summer t-shirt, then soft cardigan followed by Jacket for warmth. It’s a fun way of wearing summer items a little longer and still being prepared for every temperature.

Shop the look:



4. Scarf

Honestly – who has time to worry about how to arrange these? Go for a one piece that can simply be popped over your head – voila!

Shop the look:


5. Bag

Should be stylish, light but large enough to store little items or things you want to keep secret in case you are meeting another family member and have bought a present for them – smile.

Shop the look:

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. As always, you look so stylish! I enjoyed reading your thoughts on how to dress for shopping and I discovered a new way to style my summer peplum tees for this fall and winter.

    1. Big scarves are great aren’t they – but the ones that are all round are my fav – no problem to arrange properly and easy to pull on/ take off – hehe.

      xx Yvonne

  2. Love your outfit! And those shoes!!! What is with that brand!!! I think I want everything Nude of Scandinavia makes…… Help!

  3. That’s my shopping uniform too!! But you look so much cooler in yours, Yvonne 🙂 especially with those kicks. I, personally, just bought my very first pair of non heels two weeks ago for a conference, and I am SO glad I did. A conference is pretty much like marathon shopping GRIN

    1. Oh I am not sure – you look pretty cool yourself Sheela!!! But thank you for the complement – am blushing now. As for the kicks – I have genuinely fallen in love with them – if I only had one pair of shoes it would be them.

      xx Yvonne

  4. You by far have the most energy of anyone I know on any social media! Love your spark, zest for life & unique way of looking at styling & this one is no different. You do look so comfy, but uber fashionable. What a great theme!!!

  5. That is indeed a very comfy and sporty-chic look. Love the peplum, black leather pants and those fun sneakers, Yvonne!

    Please make sure you stop by tonight (after 6.00 PM Eastern time) to linkup with me, pretty lady. Thanks and have a great Wednesday! <3 Ada.
