Trench It

Gone are those days when superheros and law enforcement individuals enjoyed the privilege of not being misjudged for wearing trench coats because somehow, it was made for them. This is the time when everyone, no matter what shape and size, can pick out a good color and fit of trench coat and wear it on their favorite outfit for styling as well as protection from the weather. I have often wondered if trench coats should really have a season to be worn. I mean, the weather these days have stayed unpredictable. The trench should be that coat for unpredictable days; days that are neither too cold nor too warm; days that have some drizzles or flurries. Mind you, trench coats come in different fabric and one should be aware of which fabric is suitable for the weather in question. Tan and black colored trench coats used to be the norm but now designers are giving us the opportunity to spice up our looks with prints and colors that pop. Switch out the cardigans and hoodies and try the trench look for a nice change.

Dressing Tights

I'm not a big fan of substituting tights for pants because some girls take it too far. They fail to realize that their tights may be transparent and end up showing the whole world the type and color of panties they have on. Some do not have the flattering shapes for tights but do not care and end up embarrassing others on their behalf. Even though I have reservations about how the modern girls wear tights, I still like them and I have found a way to wear them without putting myself and others around me in an awkward situation. I think it is best to wear them under tops that are long enough to cover the bum. I used to wear mine under tops that were a bit loose and at thigh length. These days, I experiment with body hugging tops and I must confess that the look is flattering. The trick to wearing tights is wearing it in a well lit room in order to see how transparent or opaque the material is. If you're bold enough to wear it without covering the bum area, then wear thicker ones, preferably ones with patterns. If not, wear it with tops that cover the bum area and flatter your shape and you'll be all set.
