Fashions come and go. Midrif is back after a long vacation! English Conversation

English Conversation lesson about Fashion Week in Paris 

I remember the last time that the belly was out.  I made sure to skip it for several reasons.  One, unless you have lots of heat inside, it is a bit cold to have the tummy out. 'Two,  I don't look good that way. Three,  You have to have the perfect body to carry it off.   Where do you stand on this fashion statement?
