The temperatures are continuing to change by day and I hope you are geared for the ups and downs.
That is one thing I know with Zimbabweans, when it comes to fashion they try to move with the times.
So many were not happy with the skinny jeans being referred as outdated.
I know most of the ladies are feeling comfortable in wearing them especially this winter.
One good thing is that they can suit any occasion, if worn well but be guided if it is outdated, please respect that. And look on the bright side that even if skinnies were still around you would have to change the look anyway because trends are always getting updated.
Just know that trends come and go and it is time to clean out the items from your closet.
There are, however, trends that come and go, and then come again, then go down in a whirlwind of hate, and then pop back up in 30 years as being cool.
I am talking of skinny ties among others.
For people not interested in style, clothes can be frustrating. This week I am focusing on fashion accessories which are the lapel pin and tie bar for men while for the ladies it is all about the brooches.
There is a debate over these accessories on how should they be worn and their identity.
For a start, there seems to be a reappearance in the lapel pin and tie bar recently but not many know the few rules to follow when sporting one of these fetching accessories.
The lapel pin should always be positioned on your right lapel.
Forget symmetry, having your lapel pin next to your pocket square helps add to the impact of your look.
Wearing your lapel pin on your left lapel will spread out the details and dull the effect.
When you attach your lapel pin you can pierce the stem through the buttonhole often found on your lapel or if your suit hasn't got one of these pierce straight through the material.
Don't be worried about marking your suit as once removed the hole shall close leaving no visible signs.
I wear a lapel pin on a daily basis depending on the style and none of my suits have any sign of one being worn.
On to the tie bars which are a major source of frustration for some men, in regards to choosing where they're placed upon the tie.
Often worn too high or low, the positioning of a tie bar is of utmost importance.
The ideal position to place your tie bar is between the third and fourth button.
On a personal note if you could inform anyone else making this mistake I will be eternally grateful.
The tie bar is not just there to look good but should also act as a practical solution in keeping your tie in place.
This is done by feeding the clasp through the gap between your shirt buttons and attaching to the shirt itself.
If you are wearing a tie bar and yet your tie is swinging all over the place like a drunk returning home from the pub you will look equally as silly.
Remember the colour of your tie bar should match any other metal on your outfit.
If you are wearing a gold watch opt for a gold tie bar.
Equally if you are wearing a belt with a silver buckle try to match it with a silver tie bar.
It may sound excessive, but it is these little details which can really make the difference.
The case may be more or the same with women except for a few tips.
Brooches have always been an essential part of women's wardrobe and obvious are an excellent way to accessorise yourself and to add that final touch that will complete your look.
It is important to make the right choice, though, and with hundreds of designs on offer, it may seem to be a daunting task.
By the way a brooch is a fashion decorative accessory that usually attaches to clothes with a rotating pin clasp just like the lapel pin.
Back in the days they were used to hold clothing together and come in different designs made from different materials, including Swarovski crystals, feathers, plastic stones, sea shells, pearls and pearl imitations among others.
Ladies should know that a fashion brooch with a good design often times looks better than an expensive gold and diamonds brooch.
It is like a magic touch from a fairy godmother, but be warned it can make you look stylish or foolish.
By making it too large, know that people won't notice your face and if make it too small then people won't notice any difference if didn't have one.
Don't put a heavy brooch on a thin dress as you're asking for unattractive saggy pleats and if you put an elaborate and colorful-too-much brooch on a formal dress, it will attract unwelcome attention.
Most women like to wear brooches as a fashion accessory that keeps them with the fashion trend or just to make their outfit more appealing.
One thing is for sure — a brooch will make you stand out.
Every woman should have several brooches to go with different looks, but in any case, at least one for the formal dress and another for casual wear.
I remember growing up not only my mother but my grandmother could never go to church without one.
Keep in mind that brooches and pins are more noticeable if they contrast with the background.
Bright garments ask for black and dark-colored brooches, while silver and diamante brooches will look best on black or dark coloured clothes; so if you really want your fashion brooch to stand out.
