What not to Wear

June 8, 2008 9:36pm CST
I love this show actually i love all the lifestyle shows Property Ladder, Under the Hammer and the cooking programes like Hell's Kitchen i am hooked on all of them. I watch What not to Wear and would love to follow their rules but as i live in the tropics most of the clothes are not suitable for our weather ,far too hot in 80 to 95 % humidity. Do you find that these shows are great but don't really suit your lifestyle. Do you have any suggestions on how to look good in tropical contitions where even your makeup runs off your face.

I, too, like to watch What Not To Wear from time to time, although it is hardly ever geared toward men... probably because they are aiming for a different audience. It seems that the show features a lot of people who are trying to wear the same clothes that they were wearing twenty years ago... which probably were not all that appropriate to wear twenty years ago... It often seems to be a matter of dressing according to your age and according to the various situations in which you find yourself, looking professional for professional situations (the sweat suit doctor or lawyer is not starting a new fashion trend, they are just out of uniform...) and dressing well casually for more casual situations. It often seems to get at the underlying reasons why people don't take care of themselves - feelings of inadequacy or unworthiness - and encourages them to say, "Hey, I am worth paying attention to how I am going to present myself to the world!" Thanks for the thread!

Hi, I love that show What Not to Wear. After I watched it for a few months I noticed that I was dressing better and applying make-up more often. The only bad thing was that when I was out I would look at women and critisize them in my mind and think how I would give them a make over.(lol)If I lived in a tropical condition- I would use a moisturizer tint and I would get the eyeliner tatoo, and just wear a bit of tinted lip gloss. But, I really don't know what it would be like to live in those conditions cause I live in Canada.

I live in Florida where it is quite hot and humid. However, I work and live and shop in places that are air conditioned and I don't have too much problem with my makeup. If I go shopping, for example, it stays on as I walk from store to store. However, I am not walking for blocks and blocks. I do find that a light foundation works better than one that is too heavy or moisturizing, even though my skin is dry, because the light foundation is less prone to slipping around on my face in the heat. I also enjoy What Not to Wear though I wish they wold show more mature women (in my age group) as opposed to women in their early twenties who are trying to figure out how to transition from school to the work force. I agree with you,however, that it is difficult for those of us in hot climates to see Stacy recommend jeans and a jack over a tee shirt as casual wear when everyone would stare at us as though we were crazy if we dressed that way in the summer.
