normal every day clothes?

recently i was told (and i dont remember the exact words) that i look a little like a bum or kinda sloppy unless i clean up in regards to my daily attire i wear on a regular basis. Now, when i go to work or out to eat, a bar, etc, i usually put on decent clothes, but to lunge around the house, go to the grocery store, or shopping, i just want to be comfortable. i usually have on soccer shorts and a big t shirt or gym pants (like either yoga pants or what i call swishy pants since they make a swish swish sound when you walk) and t shirt/sweatshirt when it is cold.

what do "normal" women wear on a daily basis?

for the guys, what would a casual yet comfortable outfit look like? and fyi, i cant stand wearing jeans since my body shape makes them beyond uncomfortable. anyone?

Not sure that I qualify as a "normal woman", but I usually just dress in jeans and a t-shirt (sweater or sweatshirt if it's cold). I'm not really a "dressy" person, but I will dress up if I need to.

Sometimes, I dress more casual for dinners.
I'm not a big dressing up type of girl too.

I've always dug cargo pants on girls, when they want to "dress down". Get some that aren't too baggy, though.

Fuck what other people say... My wife wears jeans (I know you arent a jeans girl but just saying) and t-shirts on the weekends/downtime. She is a recruiter in a big law firm in Manhattan so she always has to dress prfoessionally at work and then when she puts on recruting events, so all she wants when she is at home is to be as comfortable as possible. As long as you are comfortable and happy, keep doing that.

I am the same way. I would rather spend my money on other things and it is more comfortable.

I'm a fan of jeans but, since you're not, that's not an option. I say, as long as the clothes aren't worn out or torn, just dress as you feel.

I'm curious who the person is that told you. How do they dress? Do they have reasonable alternatives? Are they important to you or can you just tell them to fuck off?

I thought all pants look like capri pants on you.

The only thing that I don't care for is women who looked like they just hopped out of bed and threw on whatever was lying on the floor. I don't care if they look casual, just as long as they look clean. I hold myself to the same standard.

My girlfriend is like this. She pretty much wears cargo pants and a t-shirt type of shirt everywhere, unless we're going out for a special event. The humorous part is that she is worth millions, but kind of looks like a slob to most. So we're often in very high falutin' joints and they don't know what to make of her. She's had to deal with a lot of class discrimination when she walks into the Ritz or Bergdorf, gets a lot of attitude from the help. We just smile and laugh knowing she could buy and sell them several times over.

Jeans and a wal-mart polo is my normal attire. Nice and comfy. Looks pretty good.

I have a bunch of button up shirts. One or two pairs of dress pants that I never wear. That's about it.

Up until I started living on my own, I had all of the purdy Ben Sherman, Polo, etc. clothes. But I just have better things to spend my money on now.

I'm most comfortable in baggy jeans, a long sleeve T-shirt and some Puma suedes. My wife usually wears jeans or swishy pants and a tank top. I think I'm pretty much the bees knees in this attire and I also think my wife looks good as well.

Funny thing about me is that I usually think women look just as good in comfortable clothes, no makeup and a ponytail as they do in an evening gown and all made up. Just me I guess. I say be yourself and stay comfortable.

C'mon. It's just the supermarket. It's not like you're going to Olive Garden.

I wear jeans and a t-shirt almost always. I just switched jobs and work in a law office, so I have to wear business casual at a minimum when working--I figure around the house, shopping etc, I might as well be comfy.

It's probably pushing it, but sometimes I wear my slippers when I'm out. Slippers= relaxation, even if you're in a crowded Walmart. I would never do this at Olive Garden though.

Capri pants should be worn MORE by women.

I think it also depends where in the country you live. I live in S. FL and wear shorts and sandals on days I don't see patients.

I always thought that nude was a good option

Seriously, whatever's comfortable is good, but clean and neat has always been good enough for me (the standard I always go by) - but don't forget the hair!
Looking like you just rolled out of a sleeping bag is a big turnoff.
