What are you wearing in retirement ?

I find my wardrobe has evolved into a kind of uniform of chinos , silky t shirts and ballet flats for some days & yoga pants & tees with sneakers for gym days or pretend gym days ( when I dress for the gym but go grocery shopping ) . So what are we all wearing in retirement ?

Depends on the situation. But definitely comfort comes first.

After wearing suits to work almost every day for years and years, in retirement I wear yoga pants, tees, and sneakers almost exclusively, all year 'round. (I live in SoCal -- a pretty casual place, dresswise.)

Yup, definitely like those yoga pants. Much better than sweatpants.

I wear whatever I feel like wearing, but the focus is on comfort.

I wear either shorts and t-shirt or shorts and a nice shirt (but never a shirt with buttons all the way down the front) pretty much year around here in the Philippines. I wear tennis shoes with no-show socks or nice sandals.

When I go out at night to some place nice I will usually put on long pants. Last evening I went to a nice restaurant and then an IMAX movie so I wore long pants with a nice shirt (but it has no buttons). I even brought light jackets for my date and I to the theater because they are often air-conditioned too strongly but we didn't need them. We saw Jack the Giant Slayer, highly recommended!

I'm wearing all my old jeans and T shirts, even if they have holes, although I did pull out some businesslike stuff last week when I did some consulting. Clothes spending so far since ER has been $5 for a pair of pantyhose. And that was a "just in case". I hate the things! Dry cleaning bill: $0.

Comfortable clothing and no heels. Gym clothes, yoga pants etc.

Except I had to buy heels and dressy dresses for some weddings last year and this year.

T-shirt, jeans and clogs in the winter; t-shirt, shorts and sandals in the summer.

As part of my de-cluttering about 6 mos. after retiring a year ago, I had the best time ever getting rid of all of my work clothes .
