  • I always feel overdressed wherever I go. I love nice jewelry and dresses, but I'm a stay at home mom, so where else am I going to wear them? Yup, to the grocery store, to my kids' activities, wherever. It would bum me out to have things I love but never get to wear them for fear of sticking out.

  • I would much rather be overdressed. I think if I'm underdressed I may look like I didn't care, or didn't take the event seriously.

  • Over dressed! Under dressed looks dumpy and does a disservice to an event others have dressed for....casual dressy is nice! Maybe a scarf to soften a dressed up look or clean, fitted jeans with a blazer or a fancy top.

  • Overdressed, without a doubt, that way you won't feel inferior. I mean somebody needs to be the trendsetter, why not you?

  • I would rather be overdressed. I'd rather be the one outshining than getting outshined lol. I guess that comes with the territory of being a Leo lol

  • I always felt overdressed and things are so casual today that it's easier to figure out.

  • I guess it depend on HOW over/underdressed. At a wedding? Over. At a bar-b-que? Under.

  • Underdressed. Usually, you blend in better if you are a little underdressed than you do if you are overdressed.

  • There's no such thing as over dressed. If you are under dressed all you can do is hope for a giant crack to hide in.
