Maybe it is where I live, but in my medium sized Midwestern city I have noticed a style of clothing with younger people. It seems it has become fashionable to wear slippers and pajamas everywhere, or pajamas and Ugg boots.

I don't dress fancy, nor am I old (30s), but it takes the same amount of time to put on pants and a shirt.

Anyway, I don't really care. Well, other than looking at pretty girls who don't dress like cr*p, which is more difficult in my land of frumpiness.

Just an observation.

Kids today! Argh! : shakes fist :

Take heart. Every generation has its sloppy phase. They'll grow up and start combing their hair, don't worry.

Please stop worrying about what other people have on! Don't you have better things to do with your time?

Most younger people aren't wealthy. Have you ever considered that their frumpy clothes might be all they can afford or are willing to spend on clothes? Would you prefer people to run into massive credit card debt to look presentable for you?

Some mornings I will run into the Wal-Mart without my hair combed or brushed, with some old sweatpants thrown over the clothes I wore the night before, with some house shoes on my feet. I am comfortable and that's all that matters.

As long as my goods aren't showing and I don't smell, what's the problem?

It's probably just a phase, at least the pajama part. I used to see a lot of pajamas on girls, but not so much anymore. However, Ugg boots, and boots of all kinds are still really big---I even see girls wearing Uggs with shorts. To me that's a pretty funny look, but to each his own.

Most the people I see wearing frumpy pajamas in public are not pretty girls! So, I guess consider yourself lucky! lmao

^^^ To play devil's advocate, the Ugg boots mentioned by the OP run upwards of $120 so the "broke" factor doesn't cut it.

Sometimes, I think people just like to look sloppy. They like to dress comfy and see famous celebs doing it all the time.

I can honestly say I've never worn pajamas in public nor have I EVER gone in public without makeup on. Not once.

But, times they are a changin' for me. I've got twins on the way and predict that my own personal appearance will soon be taking a back seat. Meaning I'll probably care as little about my own appearance as I do about other's. I have gotten a little sloppier over the past few weeks/months only because NONE of my pants fit me except my super-sized cargos. At least they are Ann Taylor, right?

Still, I will NEVER wear pj's in public and applaud stores that prohibit them (this is becoming popular in the UK). I think wearing bed clothes in public and then returning to bed in them later in the day is disgusting. Who knows what germs are lurking on the cuffs of the pants. Ew.

Yes...I am 35 (I live more like I'm 25 and I look it so far thank god)

But i do believe in putting some effort into your appearance. You don't have to look like a million dollars, but even poor people put on clean clothes that aren't wrinkled.

I'd like to see society go back to a point where some decorum was the standard in appearance (not 1950s level...but we have gone too far)

There's imitation Ugg boots now available at Wal Mart for $20 and all sorts of variations of them.
Doesn't make sense for folks to wear them in South Texas (where I live) as we haven't had any good amount of snow in 20-something years.
