Dresses are much more comfy and I have a stash of tshirt long dresses that I can layer and it is the best type of staple
This is an interesting question. I have to say that I am more of a skirt/dress person during the day. I am not a fan of jeans and I think that for my life casual skirts and shirt dressed are more comfortable and suite my style.
Marsha - I rarely wear dresses anywhere! I'm the one who wears a tuxedo jacket and trousers for formal nights on cruise ships as I refuse to pack a suitcase of evening gowns - life is too short to haul a lot of luggage! I have yet to be turned away at the dining room door for lack of a gown! Did wear a long gown to an evening wedding last Winter - won't wear it again unless another such occasion pops up! Guess my only LBD is the knee-length knitted sweater dress which I wear over leggings with riding boots on chilly Winter days.Rather than dresses I like certain skirts and have a couple of lower-calf length A-line skirts - one in terracotta linen for Summer, one a soft grey textured knit for casual with sneakers. An older crinkled silver satin long skirt with a side slit also goes along on ships and is worn with the tux some evenings. Have a black velour short shirt to wear with leggings and tall boots in Winter under a long coat, and one lower-calf length black waffle knit skirt, again for a change and worn with black Ecco leather sneakers and a loose cashmere sweater, with my now almost vintage Max Mara style camel coat thrown over. I definitely hang on to pieces I love and which are comfortable.My normal daily wardrobe consists of pants of all shapes, lengths, fabrics, textures, and a couple of pairs of longer shorts for this hot weather. My favorite pants this season have been Vera Wang's dark grey linen blend (washable) with a slightly draped cross-over waist - so light and comfortable - I bought 4 pairs when they went on sale! These are ankle length but I am wearing them turned up to a narrow pressed flat cuff - they look better cropped, and are cooler with flat sandals or loafers in the heat. I shall continue wearing them through Autumn with my short boots and a long coat. (Please do a post on new coats for the coming Winter - I love them).Well that covers me regarding dresses - I just am not a fan, much prefer spending my money on pieces I can mix - probably because I love to be comfortable and I never feel like that in a confining dress.Happy week my dear - Mary
Definitely trousers usually although today I am wearing a summer dress as it is warm here in London.
Marsha, I doubt that my input will add value to your poll because of my routine. As a retiree, I go to the gym early every morning, come home and tinker around outside with the plants, prepare breakfast for Hubby and myself. After he leaves for the office, if I don't have any outside appointments, I may do some housework, computer work, paint, or just sit and read. All that to say when I get out of my gym clothes depends on what I find myself doing on any given day. But, pants, crops and bermudas or even a long loose dress are my day-to-day attire.
I've been wearing skirts and even long cotton-knit dresses this summer. First, because I had an injured knee and it was easier, then because I realized they're more comfortable in very hot weather. My days are in a home office, working at a keyboard, but I still follow Marsha Style: Dress well.I'm seeing a fair number of long skirts and dresses on women around town this summer, as well. Skirts have the added benefit of camouflaging some less-desirable views, so there's that.
I like wearing gowns, dresses during the summer time. It is so feminine and comfortable. And occasionnally, I wear skirts. Pants, sometimes during the summer when the weather is colder. Never bermudas when I go out of the house during the summertime. I don't like bermudas, I prefer capris for middleaged women.
I range between a maxi dress or white boyfriend jeans depending on how humid it is here!
I wear dresses during the hot summer months for sheer comfort, ranging from athleisure (think tennis style dress, although it ends above the knee), tunic dresses, and A-line skirts in a range of formality. For dressier occasions like an appointment, a lunch with friends, etc. I wear a maxi or a wrap dress.
GORGEOUS!PANTS.......and long gowns...........XX
Spring and summer I prefer a day run around dress it covers more and is versatileI wear jeans with boots or drivers in the rainy months. I live in Seattle it's very casual up here.
Almost always pants, boyfriend jeans or khakis with a rolled up hem. Winter, long tights again with large tops.
