    I did when I got to college.  Since I was an education major, I needed to dress professionally very frequently.  Plus, I got on the fashion train a little later on in life. 😉

    I’ve always been HUGE on fashion and in love with it, so I started pretty early.

    I was 21 when I graduated college and got my first job. My dad bought me my first suit the Christmas before graduation so I could go on job interviews. Then once I started my job I started wearing more professional clothing

    I have to dress professionally for work but at home I mostly still wear jeans and tshirts.

    I don’t have to wear a suit or business clothes for work, so I’d say that I still don’t really dress like an adult.  I’m 26.

    I work in a lab… I can show up in a bathrobe, it really doesn’t matter. haha.

    But I’m 24 (on Friday!) and am sick of looking like a teenager. I like non-fussy clothes that are comfortable, but look a little more adult than, say, a paisley tube top.

    Cue Ann Taylor Loft. I’ve gone ape shit there over the past two weeks. I got SO much stuff- and it’s perfect! Plain, comfortable, but classy w/o looking too old. Plus, they have ridiculous sales. ridiculous! To the point where I’m spending the same amount at ATL that I used to at Old Navy, but getting a much better product. (I have a hard time spending a lot of money on single items, but I can drop a ton on a years worth of $10 shirts… annoying habit…)

    Didn’t mean for this to turn into an add for ATL, but I was just so excited with my new wardrobe!

    I work for a huge IT company and I still wear my tight jeans, sneakers, and cute t-shirts. I am also tattooed on my whole right arm, my dept wears laidback clothes as long as they are tidy and clean, no rips etc. On occasion I dress up in skirt, but I will never stop wearing my comfy clothes until being told so. Being in suits/formal clothes are really uncomfortable for me, except for the wedding dress that is. My Fiance is the other way around. He says he would love walking in a suit all the time.. instead of jeans. LOL.

    I will always be a jeans a T kind of girl. But, I have started to buy more “adult” clothes lately because I like the way they look! My job has be in a uniform so I will never need clothes for work… which is kinda nice!

    @September29: I work in a lab too, which is why I don’t bother with business clothes.  There are occasions where I have to go to meetings, and I do feel odd in my jeans/t-shirt.  I usually end up getting a hole or a stain within three months of buying a new top, so it’s not worth it to me to spend money on clothes.

    I am also plus-sized so business-type clothes are especially hard for me to find.  And when I do find something I like, the fit it usually awful and frumpy and expensive.

    I was 25 when I started dressing… better.  More appropriate clothing, I wouls call it.  Not little belly shirts and overalls like when I was 18 and 19.  Yeah.
