There is no "absolute" freedom. We live in societies, which have rules. You cannot just do whatever you like when you live among others. Society sets expectations, which if violated can label you as rude, anti-social, or if pushed far enough, even land you in prison.

Maybe not, but I have personally felt uncomfortable when I once wore dressy clothes when my boss invited the office staff to her house for dinner, and I wore a dress when everyone else wore jeans or slacks.

Since then, when unsure, I wear nice slacks with a blouse, and that hasn't failed me yet.

I would have worn the dress because that is my personal style. It never occurred to me to wear jeans and slacks.

Default dressing

I agree with Dita. There is nothing wrong with feeling good about yourself... And dressing up..

But I think its inappropriate to wear a ball gown to base ball game. Or judges robe to a picnic. Or a Tuxedo to supermarket.
Ya cant dress like you are a born- again knucklehead..

The occasion that you are going to has a lot to do with it!
And sometimes a good combination can make the difference.

An evening gown at a BBQ (or a tuxedo at a pool party, or a ball gown at a baseball game, as others have posted) is too much and would make me feel absolutely ridiculous.

That said, though, I would rather err on the side of overdressing vs. underdressing for things. I'd rather, for example, be the only one who wore dressy pants, a nice top and nice shoes out to dinner while everyone else is wearing jeans and flip-flops vs. the opposite.

I do think that here, heat is an issue. People tend to "underdress" -- me included, sometimes -- because it's VERY hot and humid.

Maybe a little bit. At work I'm the one that grooms more (makeup and hair), coordinate colors - and I like color - and wear jewelry. Some days I feel over-dressed compared to most of the women in the office but I don't care. I deal with the public and am around a lot of people everyday, so I like to look my best.
