- strayed away from quite narrow boundaries = to start to think from little choices
- dress down = to dress on casual way
- discounted as trivial = seems to be unimportant

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. C
women's code of dress is less strict = the choices that men have are more limited

2. A
wish to be taken seriously = otherwise they'd be discounted as trivial

Vocabulary:
- stray away from = move / go away from
- narrow boundaries = strict limits / limited options
- dress down = dress in an informal way
- discounted = disregarded, not given consideration, ignored, judged negatively
- trivial = unimportant, not serious
