I would say dressing down because I HATE pantyhose.

I enjoy wearing both. I only wear t-shirts, sweats or jogging pants when I go to the gym our if I'm lounging around the house. To me, I used to hide behind those types of clothes, I don't want to hide anymore. Since I've lost 60 pounds, I like to look good in my clothes.

Dress down. I do my best to avoid dresses, skirts, and heels.

I like to dress well, or as I say, decently.

I will sometimes wear sweatpants while working at home (home office), but never when I go into the office with others.

I like wearing dresses and skirts, but got out of the habit of doing so to work during a job that I had that involved installing or checking on computers under desks.

I am a very casual dresser, but my mom dresses up almost every single day. It's funny how we ended up so totally different.

If I can't wear flip-flops, I don't want to go!

i love to dress up for special occasions, oe when going out with my husband. I dress down in jeans and a nice shirt or sweater on other days.

I don't dress up very often.
I have a pretty casual lifestyle.

Dressing up for me all the way........I can not stand jeans........I have always been more comfortable in a dress and heels.

I live in hot humid FL. We dress down because of the weather. Shorts and a Tee and I'm ready to go.

I go for comfortable. I think it's great to look good because that makes you feel good - but I've gotta be comfortable.

I like to dress up.

My motto in life is it is better to be over dressed than under dressed.

It depends on the day! I love to dress up when I go out with friends or my boyfriend but I love to dress down when I am just hanging out or going to the store.

For work I dress business casual, but I do enjoy dressing up.

Well, I often dress casual, but I would not say I dress like a slob. I wear clean, neat, well fitting clothes even if they are jeans and t-shirts or tank tops. I am a college professor with a doctorate degree but I currently teach online, from home. I don't usually "teach in my PJs" though I could and nobody would have to know.

Whenever I have had jobs where I work face to face with students, I dress professionally. I try to dress appropriately for occasions. Where I live, I think I would be looked upon as ridiculous if I go grocery shopping, or out and about this town, in "dressed up" attire.

I rarely "dress up" as I don't really go anywhere that warrants it and my job is very laid back. I'm in jeans every day, even for work, but they're nice jeans, not sloppy looking. However, I'm still pretty put together, always blow dry my hair and wear makeup unless I'm just around the house or running to the store, and I always accessorize. I own one zip up hoodie sweatshirt that I only wear around the house, and I don't wear typical t-shirts unless it's for sleeping. I don't understand why people run around looking like slobs all the time.

As a retired Construction Engineer, I never dressed up except for the company Christmas party.....I now should own shares in NIKE and ASICS. I am all about the comfort but the clothes still have to look good - ie. right color, right size, good mix
