Fashion "Rules"

Talking about wedding guest attire has made me realize a lot of the fashion guidelines I was raised with are pretty much outdated these days.  Things like guys not wearing  ball caps indoors, women wearing white only between Memorial Day and Labor Day, no LBDs before 5 pm, and hose with every outfit are gone.  Do you adhere to any of these guidelines anymore?  Are there any fashion guidelines you DO adhere to?

Yes spring, I will go as far as buying coordinating knee highs. Lol. Not that you can see them but they're my go to "sock" when I wear/wore nice pants.

Ducky, the priests are all dressed up ;) The congregation isn't necessarily. It is similar in the Greek churches (in Greece, not the ones in the US).

Yes. You can see them with flats though and I like ones that have all different designs. They have such nice ones out now.

TY for your understanding mops. It's not uncommon at all to see kids attend mass in their soccer/football uniforms as many had games before or after, People in cut offs etc. I learned from a really early age that you attend church in something more reverent and I've tried passing that down to my own family too, I do have to say that allowed DD2 to wear a sparkly disco dress she wore for Halloween to mass one week, She was probably 8 or 9 at the time and insited it was "dressy" enough for church. Lol.

My fashion guidelines are few:
Does it look good?
Do you like it?
Is it comfortable?
Is it weather appropriate?
Does it cover up the necessary bits?

 

If yes ... wear it.

I won't wear black to a wedding, and I wear dark colors or black to funerals. The boys don't wear hats indoors. If I am wearing a skirt or dress, I am not bare-legged. Either hose or rights, depending on the season. I don't own anything white, but when I did, I would wear the shoes as soon as school was out, which is mid-May, and usually stop wearing them as soon as school started up at the end of August. I've mixed black and brown before - one if my favorite jumpers I had for years was a black and brown African print.

I agree Jams. I was brought up in the age of "dressing" when you go to mass and dinner and on a plane and.....The way people dress for mass now is unbelievable. I swear sometimes they just roll out of bed and go. We were never allowed to wear jeans and sneakers. I know it is more lax now but when I go for the kids religious things (out of mass) and volunteering, I feel weird walking into the building dressed like that.

No, she isn't.  'Round here, mass is a pretty casual affair.

When I went to church, I always wore a skirt-- it was my grandma's rule, and I stuck with it.
