Fashion & Dressing Your Age: How Important Is It?

I see several people of all ages wearing hoodies & sweatpants to dress shirts & dockers. Family values may be at play because my mom always told us that we should look "presentable" back when I was in high school. A nice shirt/polo and pair of jeans/shorts. However, I always felt more comfortable dressing casually, mainly sweatpants during the cooler months.

Even though I still dress up here and there, I'd rather choose joggers over jeans. But once I get a better job after college, then dressing up is almost mandatory for certain jobs. Adults can still wear what they want, but from what I've heard, dressing your age is important, especially for first impressions.
