We wear clothes to keep us warm and sometimes keep us from catching something from someone that is sick. Remember back in the fifties our moms would wear a dress and heels to clean the house? I do and I always wondered how she stayed so clean. Of course, thankfully women don’t do that anymore, but the clothes today are a fashion statement to some, to others it’s just clothes on their backs.
Men and women wear suits to work that just look uncomfortable, but they must be worn, I bet when they get home off they come and on goes the jeans and tee-shirts. Depending on where you live, you will dress for the climate. You certainly do not want to wear a cable knitted sweater living in Texas in the summer. In the south women would wear comfortable cotton dresses and still do today, which makes so much sense seeing their weather is awful. Cotton breathes therefore it is cool on the body.
Where the teens and teenagers of today get their fashion sense I will never know. They come up with some of the most outrageous outfits I have ever seen. Usually though they wear the jeans and either a tee shirt or a sweat shirt that has some silly sayings on them. I suppose that’s alright but I sure would like to see them dress up if they are going out to dinner with their parents. I suppose their line of thinking is that what they wear will allow them to be accepted among their peers. Back in the day it was a skirt and blouse and on a rare occasion pants, but it had to be a three piece suit, with the vest and everything and this was in public schools not private ones that had uniforms. Okay I am dating myself but the kids always looked nice and clean.
The way I approach clothes and fashion is that if I am comfortable, my clothes are pressed and clean, I am doing alright. No more three inch high heels to work, no more girdles underneath or even panty hose, what a pain those all were. I don’t really care for the running suits; since I don’t run why wear them? With today’s styles, materials and designs you can look like a million dollars and still be comfortable. So dress the way you want to but please dress nicely too.
