Based on the most helpful WSO content, discussions around dressing outside of work aren't directly covered, but we can infer from the context that personal style varies greatly among professionals. While the context primarily focuses on office attire across different markets and the casualization of office dress codes, it does hint at personal preferences playing a significant role in how individuals choose to dress outside of work settings.

For instance, one contributor mentioned being essentially a nudist at home for comfort, highlighting a stark contrast between their professional and personal attire preferences. This suggests that outside of professional environments, individuals might lean towards clothing that maximizes their comfort and personal expression, which could include baggy jeans and graphic t-shirts as you mentioned.

It's clear that personal style outside of work is less about conforming to industry standards and more about individual comfort and identity. This aligns with the broader theme of casualization and personalization of dress codes, even within professional settings, as discussed in the WSO threads.

Generally I dress comfortably, but in a more timeless/classic way. For example, instead of baggy jeans and a graphic shirt I'll wear better fitting jeans and a no-logo T-shirt in a neutral color. Small changes like this have been a nice balance between dressing well and dressing comfortable. For staples, I generally shop at J Crew / Uniqlo since they are decent quality and don't break the bank

 

I try to stay pretty put together outside of work and go for more so a loose fit version of a smart casual style. Lots of sweaters/knitwear paired with trousers or jeans. I think its important when styling yourself that you have a few staple pieces that you can build several outfits around. My go to brands are Madewell, Alex Mill, J Crew, Lulu, and Abercrombie.
