The most important part is to wear clothes that you find comfortable, so start with choosing a pair of nice pants. Now, I’m a bit weird, and actually likes wearing jeans even when sick and that makes looking put together much easier but it isn’t a must.
For the top; it’s most important to stay warm and cosey. I would wear a oversized sweatshirt. To make it look more stylde, tuck a part of the shirt in the pants. Believe me it makes a lot of a difference. Also if you’re wearing a belt then it’s nice to show it of.
The best and easiest way to look styled is to match the color of your shoe to your top/jacket. I like wearing a boot with room for a big warm knitted sock, since I can’t stand the feeling of walking in knitted socks I wear a pair of regular socks underneath.
I have the great fortune of owning a pair of matching boots and jacket, those are my go to when feeling down. The most important thing is to choose a warm and comfortable jacket.
Another tip is to make sure to take a shower before going out, especially to wash your hair. You won’t believe how much better you will feel after showering.
Another great part of being sick is that I showed up so sporadically that I could were the same outfit for three weeks without feeling like I was repeating outfits.
The don’ts of dressing while sick.
Don’t try to experiment, you are sick, take it easy.
Don’t wear materials that takes energy to be compatible with. I can wear corduroy, but it takes energy that I don’t have when sick. Always choose fabrics that you can stand to 100%.
Don’t go out if you are way to sick, like I did. Also don’t care about these advices if you don’t want to. The most important part of getting dressed when sick is to dress in a way that makes you feel better. I feel better when looking put together, so this works great for me.
