It strikes me that the fashion industry should take note of what the sportswear designers are doing — that is, name their clothing for what people should be doing when they wear it. If they can make running shorts and swimsuits and yoga pants, why can’t they make Flying On An Airplane clothing? Supermarket Shopping clothing? Waiting For The Bus clothing? Applying For a Job clothing?
They could do it without breaking a sweat.
