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about wedding guest attire has made me realize a lot of the fashion guidelines I was raised with are pretty much outdated these days.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?

I lied...one more.  :)

" dress up a bit for church, mostly b/c it gives me the opportunity to wear my dressier clothes. Same reason I dressed up for class. But I've worn jeans before. DS wears shorts. I think Jesus cares more about the condition of our hearts than the condition of our clothes..."

 

yes!

"not everything has to be debated... it's too early in the day ;-) "

Eh.... it was late in the evening, I was waiting on the copier guy.  :)   But one last comment (then I'll stop, I promise, lol)  It wasn't so much about how the RCC dress.... it was the absolutes and double standards in which Jambles consistently applies to any debate.

Bord--I'm sure my grandmother is rolling in her grave, but I haven't worn hose in in warm weather in over a decade (if it is cold, I wear tights). I don't wear slips. I've been known to wear my white jeans after Labor Day & Memorial Day, but never, ever white shoes. I wear a lot of white in the summer--white dresses, white pants--but I don't wear those after Labor Day. I may bust out a white dress or dress pants in April or May though, esp. if it is warm. If I'm wearing a hat, likely it is b/c my hair isn't fit to be seen, so it's NOT coming off inside. I tend to reserve my LBDs for nighttime use, but honestly, that's more b/c I love color and am a clothes horse than b/c of fashion rules.

I dress up a bit for church, mostly b/c it gives me the opportunity to wear my dressier clothes. Same reason I dressed up for class. But I've worn jeans before. DS wears shorts. I think Jesus cares more about the condition of our hearts than the condition of our clothes...

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Since I don't go to church, should I post a pic of me at the grocery store at 10am?

Finally, the voice of reason.  Whether dresses have arms or sleeves is apparently going to impact the Dow Jones today.

Actually you said, and I quote, "The catholic church is one of the most dress down churches there is..." 

Do you have proof?  A link?  Anything to back up your claim?
