When it comes to the clothes we wear every day, it can be easy to feel like you're stuck in a style rut. The clothes that are the most comfortable might not be the most fashionable. Your roomy hoodie isn't going to make you feel put-together and fabulous.

...Except it totally can. When worn by icons like Kendall and Gigi, these lounge-y pieces look chic and on-trend. Their secret? It's all in the accessories.

Below are some models off-duty rocking comfy clothes and pulling it all together with a few key accessories. Get inspired, add something simple and new to your routine, and watch your look transform.

This outfit is perfect for a day when you just want to throw on a sweater and leggings. Start by doing exactly that, then add a leather jacket and aviators for an effortless edge. Sneakers are comfy and neutral, so find a pair that matches your color scheme. To carry your phone and wallet, get a small out-of-the-way clutch in a neutral hue like the one above.

For this look, pair an army green romper with a blue and white flannel. Wear the flannel over the romper on colder days, or tie it around your waist for a boho-'90s feel.
