Sometimes, it's time to be an adult, but here's how much we hate dressing up:  40% of Americans in a new survey said that what they want to wear influences the restaurants they go to.  In other words, if a place requires nice pants: screw it, we're going to Taco Bell. (Guilty as charged. Though I still technically have to put on pants to go to TB)

41% also said they feel pressured to look stylish when they go out to eat.  And here are the top ten UNACCEPTABLE things to wear at a nice restaurant, according to the survey:

1.  Flip-flops

2.  Sandals

3.  Sweatpants

4.  Shorts

5.  A hat

6.  A tank top

7.  Leggings

8.  Cargo pants

9.  Overalls

10.  A T-shirt
