Solar punk is a tool to be used for the betterment of society. Its focus on new innovations, sustainability, and inclusivity ensures a positive future for all people and is a conscious way to develop the world we want to live in. Solar punk is welcoming to all people who share similar beliefs and values — it is a mindset in which the end goal is a sustainable earth for all people to share and prosper in.
In my solar punk future, the line between work and play will become more and more blurred. People will have to adhere less to social constraints and be more free to surpass traditional boundaries set by our current society. People will be able to wear less conventionally professional outfits and will not be held to a strict set of constraints on what is deemed acceptable.
In the current day, there are too many rules dictating what clothes are acceptable to wear. These rules manifest in our society in the form of pressure to conform, as well as actual dress codes that must be followed. Hopefully in the future the rules of how one must dress will become less restrictive and eventually disappear all together.
My wearable is a professional suit jacket, that breaks many of today's standards for acceptable work attire. Aspects of this suit including a hood and exaggerated sleeves contrast with the crisp classic suit part of this garment. This suit is meant to emphasize the the variation in how people are able to dress, while still being acceptable for work.
