A Hat to Hide the Flaws

I'm riding the culottes bandwagon these days and loving it. Another pair, this time in white and longer in length. No more awkwardness I hope...oh well, not so much now. LOL.

This post actually is not about culottes anymore since I believe I have already talked much about it on my previous post. Now let's talk about hats.

The dressing landscape has evolved to include hats in one's daily wear. Unfortunately though, it's not happening soon in the Philippines. Not unless, you are in the entertainment industry. It's not so fair huh!?

Though hats cover the head, ironically, it opens ones character to the public. It could make for an effective or implausible impression. That is why it is proper to pick the best one that will be good for both your outfit and your personality. At times, the hat you wear reflects the mood you're in. So be very careful. Hat is a potent accessory that one wears to up his outfit but there are times when we wear hats because we want to hide our flaws. There you go! I gave it away! You guessed it right. I'm wearing a hat today to make up for a bad hair day. LOL.

There is really nothing to fear about wearing hats. Just be confident. 

Remember: wear something once and it’s novel, the second time it’s familiar, the third time it’s your signature. (borrowed)

The Fashion Forward Culottes Are Back!

Yes, they are back and slowly emerging, whether you like it or not! LOL. Do you recall the last time you wore a pair of culottes? I bet it was a very long time ago. I remember owning pieces and wearing them but only until I was 12yo. Yup! because when I reached my teen-aged years, I was already conscious of the clothes I wear. Oh, not that I find culottes weird, haha, its just that I think that if you want to wear a pair of shorts or trousers, then you have to wear something that actually looks like shorts or trousers. Errr, do you get me?

Culottes is defined as women's knee-length trousers, cut with very full legs to resemble a skirt. So there you go! That explains my statement above. Thanks to google. LOL. I mean, why would one who intends to wear trousers would wear something that's just knee-length? Or, why would one who prefers to wear a pair of shorts, would pick something which resembles that of a skirt? Oh yes! Fashion is sometimes that complicated! LOL. 

Now, you'd ask why on earth am I wearing them now? Well, despite my reservation, I decided to wear them simply because it looks cool wearing one these days. Notice most of the shops' front window display are full of culottes? Its also quite a change in my long-standing 'short shorts' and skinny jeans. And to add to that, I found this pair to be not with the 'awkward length'. While culottes aren't very flattering, and despite the 'comic' attached to this piece of clothing, I realized that it's not that bad after all. So, here it is!
