A simple black dress can be classy but not fancy. I use to dress a lot fancier when I was working, in the banking industry in the 1980's it was required that we wear a dress or suit.
Years after when I was working in education we were still required to dress business casual.
Nowadays I dress up fancy on the weekends when I attend church, the rest of the time I like to be casual. Times have definitely changed in the fashion department. Don't get me started on what people wear to Walmart !!!!
Here is a picture of my Mom and Dad on their wedding day. They were married by a judge and wore dressy clothes. I "fancied" up the picture with some lace and jewels. Dad's jacket was a brown hounds tooth and Mom's suit was pink with black trim.
It does seem people's standards have diminished in the way they dress. I remember as a child when we all (the whole family) went to the grocery once a week we would wear dresses and high heels. Glad those days are gone!!
