What to wear where?

The media is all aghast about people seen wearing their pajamas out in public (particularly in Gisborne) it would appear!  This got me thinking about how we dress and what we should wear to certain occasions. Are we so casual in our attire these days, that it doesn’t matter what we wear anywhere?

Casual Friday’s were seen to change our image in regards to dressing for work?  All of a sudden people appeared to throw away the suit for ‘smart casual’ (whatever that might be).  The days of wearing suit and tie were gone to be replaced by ‘dress jeans’ and a shirt!!!

Incidentially, I went to a wedding in the weekend which was just beautiful. The bride (who arrived on a tractor) looked amazing in a full-length beaded off-white dress and her bridesmaids looked lovely (in full-length purple dresses). It was a beautiful day.  However, I did notice guests in jeans?  Does it matter what we wear where?  For me going to a wedding means dressing formally and respecting the occasion. I wore a long dress and coat from Zambesi.  My partner wore a suit from Kenzo and a dress-shirt.  We both looked smart.

However, should we provide a dress code for certain occasions, so people know what the standard of dress is, or really does it matter.

My opinion is that pajamas shouldn’t be seen leaving the front door and jeans for me, shouldn’t be worn to a wedding – but that’s just me.

I fell into the art of style quite by accident. There was no defining moment when I decided that I knew what I wanted to do. I want people to feel good about themselves. Many don’t know where to shop and/or how to wear fashion. It has never been solely about cost, but of finding quality at a reasonable price and being able to wear - to suit your own figure, style and fashion. Join me as we explore – What is Style?

  1. I agree. Jeans shouldn’t be worn to weddings – or, for that matter, funerals! Just my humble opinion 🙂

  2. What was the story about pyjamas in Gisborne? I am all in favour of wearing them everywhere, as I’m a comfort kind of gal. They are a winter essential, but in summer I prefer to wander around the house au naturel – though I do have to avoid windows or I scare the neighbours. I’d love a wedding on a beach – so you will all have to wear your formal bikinis. 🙂
