Idioms to describe appearances

Today we looked at several idioms used to describe appearances.

Remember to be careful when using these idioms. No one wants to be called four-eyes, but most men wouldn't object to being told they have a five o'clock shadow.

Context is important.

    Lynne, I am doing it in SOLB and when we talk about interesting idioms, we try to guess about their background. It is the most funny way to express our feelings in English and somehow to impress others. ;)
