What do you think about dress codes? Do they make sense in school, restaurants, or places of business? Why or why not?
I can see it now. I’ll be called an old crank for my views on this prompt.
It depends on what the dress code is. I do believe we have lost our sense of what is appropriate to wear in public. I think too much of everything and anything goes.
I personally despise flip-flops. Wear them at the beach or at home but not in public – not to work – not out to eat and definitely not to school unless you wear them in the gym showers.
These kids who wear their pants with the crotch sagging to the knees irritate the hell out of me. I wonder if they have ANY clue what it means. The parents who allow their kids to dress like this should be kicked in the seat of the pants. Girls – young girls wear way too revealing clothing at way too young an age. Again, where are the parents?
Going out to eat or to the store I sometimes see people wearing their pajamas. Seriously? Seriously? Have people no shame?
Sometimes I think a dress code would be a good thing for certain circumstances. But honestly, where is common sense?
In places of business, I can see casual Fridays – within reason. In the same token, I would not care to be told I have to wear a dress. I don’t like dresses. I never have. But I still believe in dressing appropriately and looking professional. People need to take pride in themselves.
