I read that women dress up because they like the way X looks, not usually to appeal to men.

Not sure why men dress up.

Which got me wondering.

Well, most people dress up for social occasions such as work, church, weddings, dances, etc. They would continue to dress up for these because it is the societal expectation, and it helps distinguish these events as something special when everyone dresses up.

Without reflective surfaces, it is more likely that people would choose to dress in clothes others say look good on them.

Not sure why men dress up.

Because they, too, like the way it looks.

when I said dress up in reference to women, I was talking like daily makeup, rather than like church, wedding etc.

I see; it’s difficult to put on makeup without reflective surfaces, so it’d likely fall out of use in everyday life, but remain a part of special occasions, when others can help apply it.

Men would probably shave less as well, and a resurgence of getting a shave in barber shops would be likely, if not just a migration to electric shavers.

There are no stupid questions.
