Ladies Only: Are You A Trouser or Dress Woman?

Buonasera Ladies,

Regardless of climate, I am predominately a trouserīs and suit woman professionally and for casual, jeans ...

For theatre, or an upscale restaurant or family holiday or birthday, I may put on a skim the knee skirt or select a skim the knee dress, always with heels ...

Look forward to your feedback.

Ciao, Have nice Tuesday,
Margi.

This is a good question!

I am more of a dress/skirt person, but it has to be well below the knee and fairly loose. I find I wear a lot of pants, but that's only that I don't have that many dresses or skirts for the season (any season). Once I get my reno's done and have my room set up I will get to the pile of sewing I have.

I don't own a dress.

Or heels or panty hose, but I guess no one wears panty hose anymore.

I can't wear pantyhose or anything but cotton socks on my feet (circulation and because of a skin disease I had on my legs a few years ago). I have to wear flats because of my back and knee, and I have a huge scar that goes two inches below my right knee from my replacement surgery - this can't get direct sunlight.

So with all of the above, I go barefoot a lot in sandals or with little cotton sockies in my flat loafers.

For these reasons pants or longer skirts dresses are my options! But it is also kinda who I am!

That's what I really miss about the 70's and 80's more than anything else from that era.

For work, mainly black dress pants and jackets/blazers, along with an occasional long skirt. For travel, I have several skorts (combo skirt and shorts, hit above the knee), along with various lengths of shorts, bermudas, and capris. I have some dresses, but I like to wear them with a jacket.

I haven't worn heels in years. I do have several pairs of boots that I love, and I'm a huge fan of Keen hybrid sandals.

I haven't worn a dress in at least 10 years. I have multiple pairs of black knit pants that I pair with polos or sweaters for work & daily wear. I dress them up for special occasions with a nice long-tailed blouse. If it's an occasion that I know about ahead of time I usually have new pants so the black is fresh and hasn't faded from washing. I have back & knee issues so I live in black New Balance cross trainer tennis shoes or Crocs. I can't wear a heel at all. My lifestyle doesn't put me in any super formal situations that a nice blouse and pants aren't acceptable. I try to make my shoes blend so they aren't obvious but if someone thinks I'm tacky for wearing them to a wedding or something, oh well. .. There are much more inappropriate apparel issues for the fashion police to be concerned with than my shoes.

Mostly a pants woman here. I love Capris for summer wear and jeans. Sundresses are fun and long flowing loose ethnic type dresses, but trousers are my go to outfits.

Hmmm, I do both. It depends on where I'm going. If I'm teaching, probably pants and heels. If I'm going to a wedding, a dress.
