An In-Between Season Must Have: Trench Coat

There are some firm rules in menswear: Bermudas for summer and trench coats for autumn.
Trench coats are the perfect invention for confusing weather – too cold for a t-shirt but to warm for leather or wool.
Once you have a pair of jeans, t-shirt and a cool trench coat you are all set to go. With new trends in trench coats you can either stay classic or make a statement.
PS: There are some safe zones to keep the cool look during ‘in between’ seasons. In variety of trench coat the military is, unsurprisingly, no exception.
1. The Classic
Yes. It’s the Burberry who labeled the beige trench coat. It’s classic, chic, and perfect for an urban look. It doesn’t have to be Burberry though. It’s better if it is though…
2. The Statement Option
You can be classic in autumn style with a trench coat but still make a bold statement with the pattern or colour. Stay away from khaki, beige or black and go with blue, orange, green or even red. Your trench coat can work for more than just keeping your suit dry.
3. Make a difference. Go with knee-length ones.
This option is a must for shorter men. But you can still try it even if you a tall guy. Try to stay minimalist with shorter trench coats.
4. And the military green √
The original trench coat’s khaki colouring was camouflage. It’s the key of being cool. On a more practical level, it’s also perfectly in tune with the navies and neutrals that populate your winter wardrobe.

How To Treat Acne Scars
If you look in the mirror and see acne scars, then you probably walk away frustrated because there's virtually no solution outside of expensive (and painful) laser and filler treatments. But did you know about aloe vera gel? You know, the all natural stuff that you can get at any health food store (and most drug stores) for less than $20! According to Readers Digest, "a 2014 study of 60 participants suffering from mild to severe acne looked at whether adding aloe vera gel to a standard topical retinoid treatment would increase healing." Remarkably, those that combined the cream and the aloe vera gel saw reduced inflammation and significantly reduced scarring. The combination of retinoids, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid contribute to the dramatic efficacy. TIP: Apply both aloe vera gel and your preferred retinol treatment twice a day to see results in about 4 weeks. @jordanhamilton @kaminisingh @alywoah @TessStevens @mikayla @ChelseaHeyes @QueenYuki @KyotieWolf @kristenadams @Donnas @stargaze @flymetothemoon @ImUrBestFriend @galinda @Bekka @RaquelArredondo @jazziejazz @rmayra1 @prgurl4u2envy @DemiP @alannasofia @petname83 @TinaDang @dimplequeen @tiffany1922 @atmi @ZoilaObregon @brinJSN @CelinaGonzalez @JessicaChaney @Animaniafreak @CrystalBlunt @AliciaJaneth @NaraA @TurtleyTurtles @sherrysahar @raenel @CandaceJordan @LemonLassie @AprilNapier @peahyr @MyAffairWith @SarahRegulski @HappyLulie @GingerMJones @humairaa @yellowbug18 @reaper412 @hikaymm
Tattoos: Understand risks and precautions
Tattoos might make you feel cool and are more common than ever, but don't take tattooing lightly. Know the risks and understand basic safety precautions and aftercare steps before jumping into tattooing! You could be the proud owner of a new tattoo in a matter of hours — but don't let the ease of getting tattoos stop you from making a thoughtful decision about permanent body art. Before you get a tattoo, make sure you know what's involved. Also, be certain that tattooing is the right decision for you. How tattoos are done: A tattoo is a permanent mark or design made on your skin with pigments inserted through pricks into the skin's top layer. Typically, the tattoo artist uses a hand-held machine that acts much like a sewing machine, with one or more needles piercing the skin repeatedly. With every puncture, the needles insert tiny ink droplets. The process — which is done without anesthetics — causes a small amount of bleeding and slight to potentially significant pain. Tattoos breach the skin, which means that skin infections and other complications are possible. Specific risks include: 1) Allergic reactions. Tattoo dyes — especially red, green, yellow and blue dyes — can cause allergic skin reactions, such as an itchy rash at the tattoo site. This can occur even years after you get the tattoo. 2) Skin infections. A skin infection — which might cause redness, swelling, pain and a pus-like drainage — is possible after tattooing. Other skin problems. Sometimes bumps called granulomas form around tattoo ink. Tattooing can also lead to keloids — raised areas caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue. 3) Bloodborne diseases. If the equipment used to create your tattoo is contaminated with infected blood, you can contract various bloodborne diseases — including tetanus, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. 4) MRI complications. Rarely, tattoos or permanent makeup might cause swelling or burning in the affected areas during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams. In some cases, tattoo pigments can interfere with the quality of the image — such as when a person who has permanent eyeliner has an MRI of the eye. Medication or other treatment — including possible removal of the tattoo — might be needed if you experience an allergic reaction to the tattoo ink or you develop an infection or other skin problem near a tattoo.

Real Fashionistas Critique Game Fashion
If I remember correctly, a little while ago @paulisadroid wrote a card in which he talked about how Louis Vuitton's latest collection has featured Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII as the model. To be clear: I don't know anything about fashion. I know that shirts go on top and pants go on bottom and sometimes those two things are one thing and they're called a jumper. Or a romper. Or a flightsuit. Idk. In any case, the good people (I'm assuming. Idk, they could suck) over at Australian Kotaku brought together some women who actually do know about fashion and had them critique outfits in various video games. I'm not gonna rehash their whole article, just some of the choicest bits. For reference, the women who offered their critiques are "Lisa Patulny, Editor of Byrdie / Carina Ross, Health and Fitness Editor, POPSUGAR / Alexandra Whiting, Lifestyle Editor, POPSUGAR / Justine Dunton-Rose, Beauty Editor, POPSUGAR / Genevieve Rota, Entertainment Editor, POPSUGAR" Let's start with Lightning, since she's the one who really got this ball of fashion rolling. Lisa: Feeling the tan and cream vest but not the thigh bag. Is that a thing? Do people make leg bags? I really don’t want one. Alexandra: As a dedicated FF player and, you know, woman, I love Lightning. She’s a total badass with a military background to boot, and her outfit reflects this. Lightning looks like they put her in a soldier’s uniform and she ripped off all the bits she didn’t need, strapped a bag to her thigh (don’t knock ‘til you try it) and added a cape for the hell of it. Genevieve: I don’t want to offend this girl ‘cause she looks like a bad-ass. But there’s just a lot going on. The olive green, the tan, the burgundy, the black, cream, navy, yellow . . . I’m exhausted. Coco Chanel’s sage advice – “before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off” – really would have come in handy here. She’s making a case for belts serving as bras, though. Chloe - Life is Strange Lisa: I don’t know anything about Chloe but I assume she punches people who wear the band shirts of bands they don’t really listen to. Carina: I’m not sure what her character does in the game . . . does she fight? Or maybe mope around? Either way her outfit confuses me. A beanie AND a singlet, tells me she can’t decide if she’s hot or cold. 4/10. Alexandra: Chloe is obviously very cool. We know this because she has a skull in her tattoo, on her shirt and then (for extra clarification) the word ‘skull’ on her top. Justine: This girl looks like Ruby Rose back in her DJing days. Enjoying her rock vibe and cool beanie. 8/10 Aiden - Watch Dogs Carina: Underneath that big ol’ coat Aiden looks like the kinda guy you’d want to take home to mum. Ya know, jeans, sensible jumper, dreamy eyes… 8/10 Justine: This guy looks not unlike someone who is living in NYC right now. I’m actually quite enjoying his street style. Lose the gun and I would probably go on a date with this Aiden from Watch Dogs dude. 9/10 Genevieve: I’m willing to look past the bootleg jeans and fingerless gloves for what looks to be a very attractive face under that scarf. Nice broad shoulders, a smouldering eye, 5 o’clock shadow . . . From a style perspective he’s a no but from a sex appeal angle he’s a YES. I hope he’s not a baddie. Tingle - The Legend of Zelda Carina: How adorably annoying! Nothing frustrates me more than the colour neon green. Also why is Tingle wearing his red (also an annoying colour) jocks on top of his offensive onsie? 1/10 for the booties. Justine: What even is this? It looks like something from my childhood nightmares… With a terrible sinus infection. 1/10 Alexandra: We could say a lot of things about Tingle’s look, but the important thing is he’s owning it. *cough* Quiet - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Lisa: Sorry, is this an “outfit”? I don’t think she’s finished getting dressed. I hope there’s a mumsy character who follows her around the game with a jumper saying, “Don’t forget your cardigan!” Is there? I would play that game. Carina: WHAT the actual hell!? Anyone who has boobs will tell you there’s not much you can do in a bikini five sizes too small, apart from stand very still and pray you don’t have a nip slip. How does Quiet even live? Don’t even get me started on the rest of her strange get-up. 1/10 soz, Quiet! Alexandra: If she wasn’t rocking weapons I’d think Quiet’s been made to wear this against her will. Because that is the only way someone would ever wear this. Justine: I’m lost for words. No, just no. Everything about this is no. 0/10 Genevieve: Yes, she’s covering her private parts with miniscule scraps of material. Yes, her tights are upsettingly holey. Yes, this outfit is completely inappropriate for everything, ever. But she’s got cool combat boots on, and a bangin’ body – why shouldn’t she show it off? You know what’s really letting her down here? Her greasy hair. Girl, take a shower. You know, I'm really not surprised about their reactions to Quiet's outfit. Any fashionable people here have any insight to offer? Do y'all agree? Disagree? @tessstevens @allobaber @jordanhamilton @marshalledgar @lizarnone @lavonyork Also, less fashionable people who might get a kick out of this: @inplainsight (Australia) @paulisadroid @tylerdurso @buddyesd @shannonl5 @alletaire @namrow @SAMURXAI @arnelli @poojas
