I ain't a sharp dresser, but I'll still avoid these choices

There are times when we let ourselves go, wear sweatpants & a hoodie all day, funky coloured socks, & the works. Usually this is when we're in the comfort of our homes & want to stay in & relax. But when is it appropriate to leave the house while wearing things such as sweatpants & coloured socks with snowflakes all over?

This post was sparked by seeing a bunch of university students wear animal-shaped winter "accessories" on a regular basis.

I've never quite understood why people can't make the effort to put on a pair of jeans or pants. I don't find jeans uncomfortable - that is unless they're a pair of cheap jeans or they don't fit me right! So why do people choose to hide under their "lazy clothes"? & why do some people choose to leave the house wearing animal gloves & hats? It's a mystery that I haven't solved just yet. I have the hardest time trying to figure out why people wear Crocs as well. I've tried them on & thought they were horrific (fashion disaster, anyone?). I don't understand why anyone (besides a child) would wear them unless they're on the beach, boating, gardening, hiking, or they have smelly feet.

I understand that some people believe we need to let ourselves go & not take the way we dress seriously. I believe in that statement too, but to an extent. Yes, it's necessary for us to let ourselves go, experiment with fashion, & try on clothes in styles that we never would have. I mean if we don't experiment, how else will we develop our own style? But I most certainly don't think that anyone should be wearing animal hats & gloves past the age of 16 (or maybe even younger.. I'm being a bit generous with the age here). I don't think people should be wearing sweatpants to school or while shopping either.

Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinions & I know a lot of people will disagree with me, but I've never been the type of person to go out in sweatpants or anything of that sort. I'm not exactly a sharp dresser, but the things mentioned in this post.. well, it's just not me to wear them out in public.

Have a different opinion? Comments are always welcome whether they oppose the topic raised or simply agree.

Have fun dressing.
