While playing at a park in Beverly Hills with her son Zuma, Gwen Stefani showed off the perfect park look: a gray tank, black baggy harem-style pants, gray suede ankle booties, and a purple sweatshirt tied around her waist. Getting dolled up is always fun, but sometimes all you need is a comfortable outfit that doesn't look tired. For those times, including playing in the park, look to Gwen. We love that the singer chose to add a statement cuff and bangle to her laid-back look, then finished off with a pair of print sunglasses to funky up her look. The key is to pair your comfy pieces with standout accessories like Gwen for a look that's equal parts comfy and cool.
