    I would rather be overdressed because, it would make a better impression on whomever will see me. I don’t want to look like a bum in a nice place.

  • Theresa Holly

    I would say overdressed look more professional. But if it gets hot you can always remove a jacket or blazer or top as long as you have something underneath like a blouse or shirt.

  • JoDee Stout

    If I’m overdressed and it gets warm, I can take some layers of clothes off. It’s easier to take off, than to find clothes to put on! 😉

    First of all I cant resist the cold weather, I always put on over clothes. I wear full coat and I put on 2 small underneath top coat. I feel comfortable when I am fully covered with clothes. I carry in my funky bag everything-gloves, hat, scarf etc. All my friends wonder most of the times that what is there in my bag because it is big one. Who ever know me, they know me other wise it always curious to others to know what is in my bag. I travel from down town to uptown and I live in Canada the cold place. Very rarely I wear one layer of clothes, mostly over dressed.

  • Marce McHone

    Definitely overdressed.. if meaning amount of clothes you can always remove some if too warm. If meaning style of clothes at least you make a good impression.

  • Dixie Darling

    I could care less how others look or dress, I am me, not anyone else and have never been into what goes on or who wears what. I am not worldly or materialistic and am very content doing things MY way. Who cares what others think!

    • Rachel Rodarte

      I like you’re way of thinking, whenever I have people over, I always tell them to be comfortable, whatever makes them feel at home.

  • edeliz

    Over dressed, it works be easier to make small changes to make it less dressy. Under dresses, well, there’s probably not much to work with.

  • Tami N Bill Jansen

    I can’t stand being overdressed, if people don’t like it, don’t look at me

  • Annette Edwards

    If I am overdressed then I can remove clothes or add clothes when i need to

  • Christina Hughes

    I woumd rather be over dressed if ur tok hot clothes can alwys come off but most things ur doing it is almost impissible to put layers of clothing on cause u are cold

  • Mrs Ed

    I’d much rather be overdressed. It just means that I care enough to look my best.

  • Quiarrah Rieder

    I would rather people stare at me when I am overdressed and looking good than underdressed and looking like a bum.

  • Rachel Rodarte

    Same here, I rather be prepared just in case, it’s a good idea to take an extra set of clothing, just in case one is over dressed. In a couple of weeks I’ll be going to my brothers wedding, he is having everyone at his house, I have to call and find out, if it’s formal, semi-formal, casual, I would hate to walk in and everyone else is dress the opposite of what I would be wearing.

  • Devin Scott

    Too much clothes is hot and uncomfortable. I like the natural approach better. Lol

  • ramadevi

    More is better for me. Clothes give us good shape.

  • Licha Bermudez


  • Kay Jones-Hoff

    Right now with the hot weather we are having I rather be under dressed

  • Renae Brannon

    Definitely overdressed. Although I am pretty confident so it really doesn’t matter.

  • Joanne Ahlert

    I chose under dressed for the simple reason I would rather be comfortable I have never been a girly girl so nobody would anything else from me
