|Adults show sophistication|
This is not to say I've seen adult skaters who just throw some stuff on (well, most of the coaches) but for those of us who skate seriously, we care how we look. It's not as if dressing better will make us skate better, but dressing like a slob seems to reflect an attitude of lack of care.
I'm not the only one who feels like this. The Silver and above skaters and I are always scoping out each others' practice gear.
For me it means a jacket and shirt that go together, earrings, and a hair clip that go with what I'm wearing. If I had better legs I'd wear a skating skirt, but the world has been saved from the sight of my legs by nice black slacks.

The one thing I want to warn people against, is no mater how fit you are; No matter how skinny you are; no matter how heavy the material is, if you wear light colored yoga pants under the bright lights of the rink everyone will be able to see the pockmarks of your cellulite from 40 feet away.
