Fashion Mistakes All Men Should Stop Committing Right Now
Style is not hard to get right but, unfortunately, it’s also rather easy to get wrong. While we like to think that clothes are merely a part of our greater identity, the fact is, what you wear plays a large part in how you are perceived by others. It’s been said that clothes make the man, and if that mantra holds any weight, a lot of men have some explaining to do. So here are some DO’s and DON’Ts!
1. Oversized Suits
Larger clothes do not make you look more muscular or powerful, they make you look smaller and sloppier.
2. Tie Too Short Or Too Long
The tip of your tie should just touch the top of your trousers. Anything else looks sloppy and shows a lack of attention to detail.
3. Sloppy Trouser
Nothing makes a pair of trousers look sloppier than an excessive amount of fabric spilling over the shoes. Have your pants tailored with a light break, hitting about halfway down the back of your shoes.
4. Wearing Sunglasses Inside
You might think you look cool and unstoppable, but you are completely wrong. Sunglasses are made for the sun, so please don’t wear them inside. They will make you look much less approachable.
5. Overloaded Accessory
Tone down the bling! Stick with subtle accessories for example bracelet or wrist watch or if you’re dressing up, go for cufflinks or a tie clip.
6. Wrong Color Of Socks
You think that it’s no big deal. The truth is that people notice it. The rule is to match the color of the socks with that of the bottom and not the shoes. If you are wearing denim, then having white sports socks is okay.
7. Wearing Worn Out Shoes
No matter how good the other parts of your outfit look like, ultimately, if you fail to wear shoes that are clean and in good shape, then your whole outfit will be a mess. Spend some extra cash to buy quality shoes that last a long time.
The strap of your watch should match the belt that you will be using. The same goes with the shoes that you are wearing. All should be matching. They don’t have to be the exact same color, but the same shades would go.
9. Overstuffed Wallets
Streamline your look with a slim card case that holds a few bills, a credit card and a couple forms of ID. Lose the unsightly bulge in your pocket.
10. Excessive Use Of Hair Products
Too much hair product will make your hair look unintentionally greasy and over the top. Just take care!
11. Blindly Following The Trend/Brands
There is no need to follow trends/brands all the time. Trends fade over time; you don’t want to purchase something that won’t be “in” later. Choose attire based on their fit and quality rather than on their popular reputations. You will save money and look better.
