Taste is subjective
Grand Bend, ON, August 2011
Once upon a time, we dressed up when we went out to dinner, went shopping, took a flight, went to work, etc. Maybe the world was a more formal place back then. Maybe we spent more time thinking about how our behaviors impacted others.
I get the whole shift to casualness. After all, who wouldn't want to walk around in shorts and sandals instead of a stuffy shirt and tie? Life is short, so why would we deliberately spend it wearing clothes we hate?
Still, a little voice in the back of my head - what, you don't hear them, too? - sometimes suggests, in a whisper, that there's such thing as too casual, and sometimes it may make more sense to put some real clothes on before stepping out the door.
Your turn: Is there such thing as too casual?
