Don’t wear a down coat in the summer. Don’t wear a short skirt in winter, unless you’re wearing opaque tights underneath. People notice when you seem to be dressed inappropriately for the weather, and they’ll ask you about it. “Aren’t you cold?” or “Aren’t you really warm in that?” Far from looking cute or unusual in an intriguing way, wearing weather-inappropriate clothing makes you the focus of critical or confused attention. Plus, you know, you’ll feel less comfortable. Take a peek outside before you dress, or read the weather report. Wear clothes that’ll keep you comfortable throughout the day.
This leads me to habit 26: Only wear clothes that are appropriate for the weather.
