Sweatpants-when do you wear them?
I go to a very casual school and would describe the dress code as casual to sloppy. Sweatshirts, sweatpants, athletic shorts, and maybe even pajama pants (please don’t wear pajama pants out in public) are the typical attire. But is it appropriate?
I’d have to say no. I understand that no one wants to wake up an hour early to make yourself look decent for an 8 am class, but giving yourself just ten extra minutes in the morning can make a difference. The professors don’t come to class in sweatpants, why should you?
If this man came to teach class in sweatpants, would you take him seriously?
I’m not saying I have never worn sweatpants to class, there are days where squeezing in to a pair of jeans just isn’t going to work, but for those of you who wear sweatpants more than once a week-I challenge you. Wake up ten minutes earlier and put on jeans and a nice top and see what happens. I’m not asking you to wear a suit and tie or a dress, just a pair of jeans and shirt you wouldn’t wear to bed. I bet you will feel better and more alert in your classes!
Think I’m crazy? Tell me why.
