22. How do institutions affect the way you dress?
I don't know?
They don't much -- other than making sure I don't wear clothes with cutouts.
i don't know. in an office, i like not looking like a slob when an executive walks by, even if it doesn't materially matter.
I don't really have a dress code on my campus so I don't think that they do. I also don't dress in a way that is informed by other people's opinions.
Only in so much as I am proud of the schools I have attended and, occasionally, I like to show my support.
They do not.
I work in the arts sector in a casual workplace so we can wear whatever we want. Outside of that, I continue to wear what makes me comfortable/feel good.
I am at war with fast fashion companies, so they do affect the way I dress.
In a negative way every time
I've been breaking institutional standards for clothing since my mid-teens. I bristle at rules.
My parents and their church have very definitive standards for modest, feminine dress. I've rejected those.
My professional career in IT technology started in the Bible Belt. I remember a female mentor telling me to wear a navy blue skirt suit with hose to job interviews. I scored an interview, and I wore black slacks with an orange printed top. They hired me.
Not much. I don't like being told what to do or being pressured to be a certain way and so normally ignore expectations.
I think they so not affect me, but I am not sure.
not quite I think.
I guess I would try to be appropriate within reason
not at all
Not much other than at my work its a dresscode i have to follow.
I have to dress in uniform for my job. I bring my own clothes to and from work so that mentally I don't feel like I am working as I am travelling.
Banks require full corporate wear except Fridays. Some religious institutions call for modesty. I comply within my personal boundaries of fashion
I rebel against them.
Policies set in place will obviously change it, but I’ll also sort of adapt to the environment a little bit. Pick things up here and there.
I buy from only one online shop. I am totally committed.
