so you're living the good life-- but is there really an outfit which goes gracefully from brunch with the in-laws to an afternoon of boating to dinner & an evening movie? No.
You'd have to change.
Or would you?
What if, everywhere you went, the appropriate garment was already there, waiting
A few examples:
Save tons of money on your wedding dress-- there's one at every altar, just like a bible.
You'd only need one suit for work-- if it was glued to your desk chair.
Everyone would go from place to place in simple black, white or "flesh-toned" ensembles. There would be a range of foundation garments, something appropriate for every body type, from bikinis and catsuits for the young and daring to a simple t-shirt and pants for the portlier among us.
you are versatile, wearing many hats. which are not in and of themselves versatile, so they should be nailed in important places, at adjustable head-level.

||Insofar as you can rent bowling shoes when you get to the Bowling Alley, I'm going to call this one Baked (although it might also count as a me-too).
||Croissant; downside would be possibly having to wear clothing with other peoples' stink in it. I think I would bring my own clothes to the trailhead, for example.
||([phoenix], all those links are for a different idea. this idea is pretty clearly for appropriate clothing to be available at point of use, not for existing clothing to morph somehow.)
||They all solve the same problem, albeit in different ways.
