I'm trying tocome up with a little piece for my website about winter fashion tips and observations. Some are meant to be funny and fashionalbe; some are helpful. This is what I've come up with so far. Any more suggestions?

Winter Fashion Tips and Observations

1. Knee warmers and leg warmer are meant to be worn under your shorts. Arm warmers are supposed to be put under the jersey sleeves.

2. Booties and Gortex Socks keep feet toasty. The same for windproof gloves for hands.
3. Don't worry, everyone looks like the Michelin Man, too.
4. Be visible at night. Wear light colored clothing. Put a red blinkie the back and a white light on the front. If you really want to be visible, buy an Illumilite jacket.

Fortunately, I'm old enough and cold enough that I don't even think about fashion in winter. I just gob on clothes until I'm comfortable, then sit on the couch to put on my shoes, fall asleep and wake up after it's too dark to ride.
I have to disagree about the position of arm and knee warmers, though. The whole point is that they go OVER the other stuff, so you can peel them off easily when you warm up. This has the added advantage of increasing your Dork Quotient so nobody's surprised when they pass you and ride away.
