Fashion Mistakes men should avoid


Just like we all make fashion errors now and again, some men to make fashion errors that are just unforgivable and that should be avoided at all costs.

Socks with Sandals
If it’s chilly outside and you want to wear your sandals badly; it’s good to have a better alternative than wearing sandals with socks. It’s a major fashion ‘don’t’.

Novelty Ties, Shirts, Boxer Shorts, Etc.
There is nothing lasting about novelty clothing nor does it project a stylish, put together image. So avoid clothes that have smiley faces, hearts, reindeer, shamrocks, animal and various other prints on them.

Blaring Designer Labels
It’s not a sophisticated look to be a walking advertisement of a certain designer. Just because you are wearing a designer’s name on your chest, sleeve, or wherever, doesn’t make you stylish. Keep it understated and simple.

Backpacks at the Office

It’s fashionably wrong for men wearing nice suits to schlep backpacks. Unless you are a student or are hiking up a mountain, leave the backpack at home. If you need something for your gym clothes, buy a nice looking gym bag or if you need something to carry your assorted papers, cell phone, day-planner, etc., get a nice messenger bag.

Chunky shoes
These were okay back in the 90s, but the big chunky shoes, especially those with square toes, should be retired at this point. Choose something classic that stands the test of time.

Shiny or glittery shirts and suits
If you are looking for something to go out nightclubbing in, a form fitting black t-shirt or black dress shirt which can be worn with jeans or trousers and dress shoes or casual shoes is way better than glittery shirts.

Clothes that are too loose fitting
Unless you are a hip hop artist don’t go for this look. Choose clothes that fit your body. This might take some experimentation by mixing and matching certain cuts and styles until you find the right fit for your body that is flattering.

Unflattering Colors
The colors you wear should compliment your natural features such as your eye color, skin tone and body shape. Keep this in mind when putting your look together. If the piece of clothing in the store looks tempting but makes you look bad, don’t even bargain.
