When dressing for your average work/school day, do you place a higher priority on dressing to impress or dressing for comfort?

I love my sweater vests. Comfortable, yet fancy. *adjusts sweater vest* how do I look?

*my teachers perspective*

Appearance, because you make more money in the long run if you look the part. Sorry but we're a shallow race and if a nicer outfit makes me more money for zero added effort, I'll well, take it!

I work from home, so sweat pants, tank top, and slippers are my work clothes.

Dear SOH users,

Surprisingly, all teenagers don't do stuff like this and we aren't as stuck up as you make us seem

What's wrong with Old Navy? Aside from foreign manufacture that is.

Comfort usually. But I don't really have anyone to impress at my job, so...

I guess at both for me because I've never cared about looks but the comfortable things I like to wear I make look stylish and wut not

How very judgemental. Why is it okay for you to dress the way you like, but not okay for others to dress how they prefer?

Kind of both. I don't wear pajamas out in public but I don't wear crap from Old Navy either.

Appearance because EVERYTHING I buy is for comfort.

Being a machinist there really isn't any need to impress... The mills and lathes don't care what I look like at all. Comfort and safety are the keys for me

Coat and tie dress code, so no choice in this one

I don't think there is such a thing for women. Unless sweats and tee shirt look good.

I'm all about comfort within the district's teacher dress code. If I could get away with wearing jeans and boots with a sweater to school every day like I did in Oregon then I would. It was comfy and looked nice too. Alas, I can only wear jeans on Friday, and only with a school "spirit" shirt. :-(

I dress to impress I own a company and have many well dressed female employees working for me I prefer to hire productive yet sexy women who will do what it takes to move up the corporate ladder

I'd say I balance both pretty well. While I enjoy trendiness and looking good, some girls in my school go way over the top--I'm talking about the ones who wouldn't be caught dead with uncurled hair or jeans. It seems so shallow. I enjoy dressing up, but I have other priorities.

I dress for comfort but I'm retired. I find that most people today don't dress up the way the used to.

Both actually. Dressing nicely & fashionable doesn't have to be uncomfortable. There are some trends that are uncomfortable, but you don't have to follow them all. Mix classic with some updated trends & it's easy to put together both.

Well, I have a R1 (SuperSportMotorcycle) so while dressing for comfort/functionality I end up also looking really cool/apperance:)

Comfort! And I usually look pretty nice, too...so I think! I have girl friends who wear the most torturous-looking shoes and claim that fashion is pain. Why would someone do that?? Their shoes are really not even that cute!

Right now I'm a stay at home mom doing an online degree program. Comfort rules. But once I'm done with school and headed back to the workforce I'll be a teacher so I'll dress professionally but with comfort in mind.

Yes, he was an older guy of Scandinavian descent he didn't go to the club much longer after that. Where I work we have hot tops in both locker rooms so you can go in your birthday suit and we also have one by the pool birthday suit frowned upon.

Hey @EarlyBird, that "most comfortable" suit you reference should work out nicely in that relatively new hot tub, out on your back deck!

Usually because they said something very inappropriate or really vulgar I've since pretty horrible statements lately I have not ignored anyone but I've reported them. I think Tony blocks people who get too carried away

If you ever go up the 101. Give me a beep when you go by.
My friend's husband was a long haul. He had a heart attack behind the wheel on I-5 by Salem. I guess that's like dieing with your boots on.

Tommy I almost stopped a woman clomping in heals and gave her a walking lesson. She looked so uncomfortable.

Where I work some old guy showed up in his birthday suit to swim. My friend was conducting the class. She asked him if realize he didn't have a suit on. He said yes, he left his suit at home she very gentility explained to him that suits were required.
