the way i see it is, when you're a baby, infant, toddler, child, etc. it's common to wear casual stuff for convenience. when you're elderly, same thing. so, in between those stages why not wear something, anything besides casual?

I live in America and I have wondered this too. Also if the casual fashion is as extreme in other 1st world countries as in the U.S. I know in the 50's people dressed very well even to the grocery store and at school, very casual places nowadays. Somewhere between then and now something changed. My guess would be a combination of the sexual revolution and the faster pace of life with modern technology.
