When all of us get up each day, we must decide what we are going to wear. Some of us throw on an outfit in less than 5 minutes; others lay out options and spend an hour trying things on before they decide. Most of us know not to show up to work in our sweatpants, much as we would like to, and we don’t typically go to a barbecue with friends in a suit and tie. We make decisions based on what we will be doing and what is appropriate in that setting.
Although outfit selection can be more challenging for an individual with vision impairment or blindness, it is not less important. Students preparing to transition to adult life will need this skill to present for interviews, to engage in leisure activities, and to look presentable in all realms of social situations.
