The casualization of the Western wardrobe has been going on for decades, and I definitely am not suggesting some sort of return to 1900-1950's fashion where you have to wear a suit or long dress every day.
However, the hyper-casual nature of post-2019 fashion is going way too far imo. I think it's a real shame that adults have regressed our standards to match those of children/teenagers. If you're 30+, you shouldn't be wearing the same things as a 13yo.
It's now commonplace for people to wear street clothes into work. I see teachers at school wearing jeans and a t-shirt, people showing up to an office in a hoodie and distressed denim, and wearing beanies and caps indoors. You go to a public building like the mall, library, museum, etc. and you'll find people in pajamas!
I would strongly encourage anyone (especially if you're over ~25-30) to reflect upon your wardrobe and the message you're projecting.

Boyfriend wants me to change my name when we get married. I don’t want to. He says it’s a dealbreaker. Help?
We had another conversation about this tonight and I’m feeling very defeated and upset.
I don’t want to change my last name. I like it and it’s a part of my identity.
My boyfriend is upset at me for not wanting to change it. He says it’s a possible dealbreaker for him, and “what’s the point of getting married if you won’t take my last name?” He says he really wants to be “The Smiths,” not him “Smith” and me “Jones.” His parents divorced when he was young and this is definitely a driving factor behind his thinking.
He also thinks that me not taking his name means I’m not entirely committed to him.
Part of me says just do it to make him happy, even though it will make me upset (something he doesn’t seem to get). I just feel like this is such a stupid thing to break up over if he is really that adamant on me taking his name.
Edit: Holy shit I fell asleep and just woke up to see all of your comments. I will try to reply to as much as I can. Thank you for taking the time to read of all this !!
