Only if you want people to understand what you are trying to say. There is "dressing up" in formal wear and there is "dressing up" in odd costumes as the subject of this topic. To some "dressing up" means putting on their best pajamas and carrying their Finding Nemo pillow.

When you seem to think it has a different connotation, yes you do.

Long gone are the days when people used to dress up to travel.

If this happened in America she would be pressing charges against the airline and the sad part is she would win.

The world is getting weirder by the day.
I don't know about you but I wouldn't wear a dress shirt and slacks, let alone suit on a plane. It's uncomfortable enough just wearing day clothes and also taking off sneakers to go through scanners (though I believe some now allow you to not.) I'm so glad that I am not of the 1960's or so when that was the norm.
That said, I believe that these shorts were almost underwear short so I can understand the complaint. It looked like boy shorts or "trunk" boxers rather than the hot pants like they are supposed to be. At least she should have had pantyhose or leggings underneath.

Pantyhose? Are they making a comeback or something?

Unless you are a Hooter's waitress, I've never heard of anyone wearing pantyhose under shorts. Especially under shorts that look more like something you would wear to bed and not out in public.

Ok, so think. Looking at my post, isn't it obvious what I meant? When I hear the word dressing up, it means formal. I mean... duh. My post was very clear.

I have never heard wearing a costume referred to as dressing up. And it's obvious by my post I didn't mean that anyway.

I was referring to someone who asked why people don't dress up for travel anymore. I honestly doubted that person meant pajamas or a costume. Come on, people.

I might be sitting next to an obnoxious kid who is too young to be there or a man that is spilling out of his seat. That doesn't mean I'm going to give up on my appearance and start going in my underwear and a gaudy sweatshirt.

The same with flying. I would rather not look like some hobo who just walked in off the streets, or like I'm to lazy to dress myself once I got out of bed. Dressing nice doesn't mean you are uncomfortable. If I'm flying in the summer, I'll wear a cotton maxi skirt, tank top, and sandals.
