You know when you have those mornings where you just can't pull a matching outfit together? Maybe you're having a fat day, or you're hungover, or you've come to the conclusion that nothing in your closet matches.
Today was one of those days. In a panic, I grabbed the tightest, most uncomfortable dress that I own and a pair of those nude stripper-esque shoes that everyone wore two summers ago. I am sitting at my desk, with my dress unzipped and my shoes on the other side of my cube, shoving expired Girl Scout cookies in my mouth while I type. I am not happy.
I should have worn my quitters.
What are quitters, you ask? They're your comfy clothes. Maybe it's your yoga clothes — which are cozy to wear even if you have no intent of doing yoga — or your Thanksgiving dinner pants, or your jeans that you don't have to wear a thong with because there is plenty of room in the trunk. Whatever it is, it's your go-to when you JUST GIVE UP.
At least once a week I walk into my coworker Carla's office to show her my QOTD (quitters of the day). I like to show Carla because she is always dressed to the nines, and she runs the totally awesome style blog Stella Shops, so she totally appreciates some well-executed quitters. Because quitters don't have to scream to the world, "HEY! I WORE MY QUITTERS!"
Funny thing is, quitters were ALL OVER New York and London fashion weeks. And why not? Take it from a girl with a zipper seam embedded in her torso: Fashion doesn't always have to be painful. But quitters don't always have to look like quitters. Carla pulled together some of her favorite examples of quitters that would be appropriate for work, play, or massive cookie binging.
Hey look, man quitters!!

Oh, and we can't take credit for the term — we stole it from Amy Stroup, and now you're going to steal it from us because it's fun to say "I wore my quitters today."
