Do you always dress properly?

Do you always dress properly?
There are times when each and everyone of us try to look our best. But there are many among us who always prefer to dress very well. Their clothes are always ironed properly and they a dress meticulously with matching accessories irrespective of the occasion. Such people are very particular about their dressing.

Personally I also like to dress up well but only for special occasions. In my daily life I prefer to wear simple casual clothes with minimal or no makeup. What about you all? How important is your dressing for you?

Agree

Yes some of the time

Yes, I do try to look good but am not big headed or love myself. Some days if am staying in, I just sit in trackie bottoms.

As no one going to see me through the computer, and it is good to feel comfortable.

Every time

Whenever I go out, I always make sure that I dress properly. I also make sure that I dress for the occasion. When I'm at work, I follow the dress code. When there's a formal occasion, I bring out my coat and tie. When I go to the beach, I have my swim wear. I also have a dozen casual clothes that I wear whenever I go to the mall, watch movies with my girl, etc.

I don't feel at ease if I don't dress properly when I go out. Also, I try to maintain a professional image which I went I am conscious about how I look.

But when I'm at home? Of course I wear anything that's comfy - from tattered shorts to T-shirts with holes. But when I have a visitor, well of course, I would have to change. ?

Dressing is important

I think that it is important to always dress properly. There are certain ways to dress depending on where you are going. I hate seeing people in church in shorts and flip flops. You should dress respectfully.

I agree with you. You should also consider the place where you are going. Church is a sacred place that you should consider what to wear and dress appropriately it is not a beach to flaunt some skin. One should really dress respectively.

Dressing up properly is something every person should do. You can tell a lot of about a person by the way he or she dresses.

Wear decently

Yes, I do take note of my dress code when I am outside especially when I meet my clients or window shopping. I never realized that how I wear or what I wear signify what I am.

In the past, I used to wear jeans and T Shirt wherever I go. My clients and relatives looked down on me because of my casual wear. Then I changed to blouse, long sleeve knit Tee and slim fit tight jeans that are black in color, not visible as a pair of jeans. Nowadays, people are respecting me and courtesy. Most importantly, wear decently, don't wear bare shoulders or belly buttons show off Tee. Clients don't like that but your boyfriend does!

Appearance Matters

I always pay attention to the appearance. You can see that it always matters in that case. You can see that some of the time people don't pay much attention to it. And this means they are going for the first impression the wrong way. That's how things are going to work out there as well.

I try it

I love to shop new clothes, it's something that makes me feel better, and I know I can sound very materialist but it's just how I feel. I think it's important to dress well depending o the occasion, we have to be careful on the outfits we use, because it can have a great impact on how people watch us, I mean, what they think about us (if we are a good person, a bad one, if we have education, class, if we are simple or stand out) so it's really important to dress properly.

It's important.

I believe dressing properly means dressing as the occasion calls it for: If you are in your home, then you must wear clothing suitable for your home, if you go outside, you must wear clothes that are appropriate for the place you will go to, and so on.

In this case, I believe I dress properly, for I care about giving the proper impression to the people I meet at work, at the university or at social gatherings.

Feel Best When I Look My Best

I do generally always try to dress my best because I personally feel that when I put effort into looking my best, then I will also feel my best. It's a little like that "fake until you make it" saying. Now, I don't believe dressing my best particularly means name brand or upscale clothing with high end accessories. On the contrary, I'm much more of a thrift store or make it yourself kind of girl. For me, my best, means that my clothing is picked to be appropriate for the occasion and is accessorized with necklaces or hair clips to match. I pretty well always have either a flower or bow in my hair, it's become my trademark. I think because I love taking and being in photos whenever I go somewhere and then end up scrapbooking each occasion, I do put more thought into what I'm wearing. Admittedly, I often plan my attire to "match" the occasion. If I'm going to be outdoors, I tend to pick colors or flower printed fabrics to match the outdoors. If I'm going to a museum, I'm usually in a dress. A day at the zoo, something with a wildlife print if I can. A birthday party, I'll try to wear the favorite color of the birthday person. I must admit that I'm a rather themed person and my personal attire reflects such.

Yep.

I don't follow any type of fashion or trend (this means absolutely nothing to me... however, I respect the opinion of those who think the opposite of me, obviously), but I have a good sense of what I have to wear or not wear (always considering the kind of places that I have to go to).

So yeah, I know how to dress myself appropriately.

Yes

I do always dress properly to look presentable at any places. I even make sure that I properly dress even just by going to a store or somewhere else. I make sure that I look clean, I feel clean and properly dress for the entire time.

Of course

I always dress appropriately for all occasions. You just have to be sure what you wear would look good on you on that certain event and no one will feel offended. Some example are when you are at church you are required to wear a semi-formal attire not wearing shorts, slippers, sleeveless, pajama clothes. Also in cases like weddings where you should wear an appropriate dress code and not just go in your swim wear.

Not for everyday stuff...

Sure, I dress up when the occasion demands it, but for everyday stuff, nope. I wear jeans or shorts and t-shirts or other casual shirts most of the time.

If I'm going somewhere, I'll step it up a little. If I'm going someplace nice, that's different. I do enjoy getting all dressed up when it's appropriate, but I don't see the need to do so on a daily basis. My computer doesn't care what I'm wearing (and I work from home).

Not Really.

Special occasion or not, I really don't want to over dress. I remember our last Christmas party, everyone was putting on make up, and all dressed up including the men too. I on the other hand was wearing my typical black shirt.

I'm not saying that people should be as simple as I am. I guess I'm not that into fashion, now that you mention it.

I am lazy!

I am too lazy to always get dressed properly. Perhaps if I was a guy I could be bothered but I feel like it takes ten times longer for a woman to get dressed up properly.

I don't really care that much about my clothes. I do try to look good but not always. Of course, this applies to my everyday life and not for special occasions or work. For those things, I always follow the dress code because it is needed.

I just like wearing more comfortable clothes when I am at home or visiting friends. It allows me to fully relax.

I just never do.

That's a problem with me, no matter how hard I try, I never dress properly for the occasion, it's like there is no middle for me, too formal, too informal, I can never be in the middle. I don't know why.

Comfort over style for me.

I always try to wear appropriate clothing for whatever I am doing; but most of the time I am at home; so casual clothes are fine to wear. We don't really socialize anymore; so we do not go anywhere that we need to dress up for. Walmart shoppers are not known for their fashionable clothing styles, and I would say that we definitely do not fit into the catagory of Walmart shopper that you see the youtube videos about; but we just wear comfortable clothes whenever we go shopping or to the grocery store.

Not me!

I dress properly when it is a special occasion, a wedding, baptizing, a birth date, etc. I like dressing more comfortable and wearing jeans and a T-shirt, sneakers and that is all. All that matters to me is to feel good in my clothes and look nice!

Depends of the occasion

On my daily life I just wear casual clothes as I work from home I don't have the need to dress up. For special occasions, of course, I like to dress decent cause I cannot attend to a wedding wearing jeans and converse lol (I wish). It's ok from time to time take a moment to dress differently from you are used to. I have a lot of respect for those people that take the time every single day to dress up, cause it requires some dedication to do this often.

Not Always

If I am being honest, I need to admit that I seriously could dress better for some occasions. Often, my roommate and I will go out to the store or to grab food on the spur of the moment, and I could make myself look a little better, but sometimes I just say hell with it and jump on the car wearing old jeans and a ratty tee shirt. You never know who you are going to run into, so this may not be a good policy, but I admit I do it sometimes nonetheless.

I agree with you. There are times when we take our dressing for granted and run into a known person. This leaves me in an embarrassed situation and I regret not being dressed properly.
jbernardo2145

comfortable clothes

If I'm going for a job interview, of course I would wear a formal clothes but when I will just stay at home I would prefer to wear comfortable clothes like shirt and shorts since we have tropical weather here in my country.

DanoCath

Very rarely!

I always dress simply and sometimes unfashioned. I always don't have any sense of style or fashion. I just dress myself to whatever clothes my closet is available. I rarely do shopping, and if I do I only buy cheap shirts and dresses. I only get myself dress properly whenever there is an important occasion because my mom would definitely be in charge of what I will wear. I really don't care if people see me weird with the way I dress but this what I am comfortable with. And I guess there's nothing wrong with dressing myself simply.

Depends on the day

I like wearing comfortable clothes. When I do everyday errands I look nice but still comfortable at the same time. I will wear a hoodie and some shorts in a heartbeat, but that's just me. Now if it's for a interview, work, special occasion or going out to a dinner or bar with friends then yeah I will dress up.

I think I will dress according to the occasion. For instance, it does not make sense for me to wear jeans and t-shirt to the wet market. I will dress in casual clothes when meeting my friends. As for work, I have a uniform so I will have to stick to the requirements. I dress the best when going out to parties or some formal events.

I agree that we should be dressing according to the occasion. Isn’t it funny to see a woman all dressed to the nines when she is just going to the supermarket? I sometimes wear shorts in going to the wet market but in the supermarket where it is not that informal place I wear pants. For the office, I have no uniform but I wear pants and blazer to give me a not so casual look.

I like to wear comfortable clothes as much as possible. Casual clothes such as a shirt and shorts or pants are my usual get up. Nothing fancy, mixing and matching is not a thing for me. I will wear something that is ready and would not doubt a bit on how It looked on me. Instances that I’ll be a bit conscious on how I’d look on my get up is if I’m going to a formal event or to meet people that I need to impress.

I am not always dressed properly when I go somewhere. I like to be comfortable and don't like to wear anything that is restricting or uncomfortable. I do try to dress for the occasion and dress nicely but I don't overly do it. I don't like to get all fancy or anything besides I very rarely have anywhere to go that I would have to have fancy clothing. I do know people who have to be dressed in the latest fashion, have their hair done, and who never leave the house without makeup. That is fine for them if that is what they like. Just not my thing.

There was a time when I akways used to dress properly. I would never walk out of my house witout proper clothes. I never went out in slippers, never wore shorts outdoors, never wore only vests. I always wore suits, for formal gatherings, jeans and tshirts for informal gatherings. However, these days I have stopped dressing properly. I wear vests and shorts, shoes are not necesseries for me slippers will be find. My change in habits is driving my wife nuts.

Hahaha... I can very well relate to you and to your wife . No wife on this earth can tolerate an ill dressed husband. But yes, we often depict changes in our dressing style. These change of moods keep occurring on and off and soon you will switch back again to your formal dressing. It is perfectly OK to take a break every now and then.

I am always dressed, but not necessarily all out for every occasion. It depends where I am going and the occasion. If it's just running an errand I wouldn't mind too much what I wear - usually just something basic like yoga pants and a shirt. If I go to a party, I will wear jeans and a nice ruffled top or some sort of blouse, sometimes a dress. It just depends on the situation.

I will dress to suit the occasion. If it's a formal affair, then I will wear formal attire and I would not be in jeans like how some people may believe that it would be able to fit into the formal category. Otherwise, I like to dress casually and comfortably as much as possible.

To be quire honest here i don't care about my clothes that much. I try and dress nicely but plainly. Simple is always best in my opinion. I try and wear always clean clothes but plain nometheless.

I was schooled in a religious academy where decorum is priority and fashion is required, the reason why I grew up to a conservative lifestyle. When it comes to dressing, I never fail to be clad in the proper attire for occasions and even non occasions. Like some neighbors that I see when they are at home and just wearing sando without a bra, I never do that because I'm always dressed properly. And although my clothes are simple, I know that people admire for being well dressed all the time.

I dress appropriately depending on occasions and events and try to look at my best. I always consider where I am, where to go before I dress. I dress comfortably too according to the weather. But when at home I wear comfortable clothes and I don't even care how I look.

I have been scolded by my mother once when we went to a mall to spend time together and eat. It was because they were all dressed casually and I was the only one to go business casual. I felt like I didn't belong to the family when she told me that but I find it really funny. I have grown a liking for the business casual attire and if possible, I will go with it. If there are occasions that I have to attend and the required attire is indicated, of course I will follow.

Yes, whenever and wherever I will be going , I always dress properly. I see to it that my clothes are proper for the occasion and the place. I am that way since I already know how to dress. That's maybe because of my being an eldest. At an early age, my father and mother has already given me lots of clothes that's why i become aware of what to dress according to occasion. I also learn to put on make-up since college because it was the craze during that period in my life. Thus,putting on make-up has also been part of my dressing properly - light , when I am in my casual and just enough when there is an occasion, a bit more when the it is an evening party or event. And the bags also goes with the occasion. I also accesorize only when I go to a party.

I would say that I always dress appropriately for the occasion, but I don't always dress up. I enjoy wearing simple casual clothes if I'm just going about my everyday business because it's more comfortable. However, I still like to choose casual clothes that I think look nice and presentable. I'm not someone who pays too much attention to accessories or to wearing clothes that would impress people, but I like dressing in a way that I feel represents myself.

Not really, I don't always dress properly and come to think of it, why would one always dress probably? Am I a Reverend father? There are some occasion that calls for crazy outfit, places such as night clubs, birthday parties, swimming, beach etc.

I think ones location and place of destination should determine the kind of dress the person would put on. If it's a place that require decent dressing, then a moral decent attire should be used but if the reverse is the case, then to hell with decent dressing.

Sure,I dress properly and prim too.I don't believe in indecent dressing because I don't follow trend either. I cover my body with my clothing and have a very decent outing. I won't gain anything by dressing shabbily or indecently so yes I dress properly.

Depends on my mood. When I feel lazy for the day, I wear comfortable clothes and just be on my room most of the day. Other times when I'm in the mood , I like to dress-up so it varies from time to time.

What is dressing properly? I think matching your clothes is lazy fashion. One of my favorite past times is watching people on the streets, how they dress ad how they mix and match their clothes, shoes and accessories. I use people casually dressed but they still look good. Your accessories don't have to match, you can put on different colors like yellow mixed with blue and green and still look good. I think fashion is about innovation. Its always said that fashion is what you buy in the stores and style is what you make of it.

Dressing properly for a woman is wearing long dresses and closing the body. That would the right and appropriate thing to do. The way many people dress in 21st century is simply rude and barbaric. Boys and mostly girls who show off their body parts remind me savages. I'm personally not a savage, I'm a human. And I'll dress as a human.
