There are no rules. However, there are guidelines. From most relevant to least, when taking care of business around town, some things to consider when choosing bottoms:
- Are they clean?
- Do they fit me well?
- Are they comfortable?
- Are they washable/easy to maintain?
- Will they coordinate with > 75% of my tops?
Let this be a guideline from which to deviate your outfits. Show respect for the people with whom you'll interact while demonstrating maturity by being well 'put-togeter' (whatever this looks like according to your perosnal style).
