Fashion Mistakes Men Make

Men, unlike women, are not keen on riding the fashion bandwagon. The outcome of which is some unforgivable fashion blunders they commit, being blissfully unaware. Believe it or not, how you dress up can significantly affect your love life, career and health in a huge way. So before the cynic in you turns around wincing at just what we said, read on what we have to say. Slag — if slag you must — later.

Bad fashion choices that you should stop making right now

Wrong pants

It is best to wear jeans during casual occasions, and best kept during corporate events. No matter how good you look in your skinny cut pant, it has no place in formal gatherings. Stick to the tried and tested men’s suits to achieve a professional look. Nevertheless, make sure to wear well-fitted suits, a suit too loose or trousers too long is still a major fashion faux pas!

Cargo shorts

We know you like to bring a lot of stuff but hate to carry a bag, but it doesn’t justify why you need to wear cargo shorts. The extremely pocketed shorts are a thing of the past, and it’s wise to leave it as it is.

Black shoes for all seasons

Black shoes are versatile and easy to pair with formal outfits, but it is not the only color that would match perfectly with your attire. Other colors such as brown or burgundy can complement your black,brown and navy blue suit.

Too much graphics and prints

Wearing shirts or pants with elaborate prints and graphics are cool ten years ago. Today, shirts with large logos are an eye sore. It’s not a good idea to invest your money on branded clothes with images plastered all over the piece of fabric that can make you look like a billboard. Better opt for shirts with simple prints or plain design.

Belt and shoes with matching color

The combo only works for the dressy occasion. Get rid of the same color rule when you wear business suits or casual wears.

Wrong pair of socks

White socks not only look awkward when paired with dress shoes, it can also ruin your perfect formal outfit. White socks are informal and best worn with your rubber or running shoes. If you are attending a corporate event, black or navy socks are the best choice there is.

Many occasions can occur in a year. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to redeem yourself by improving your clothing style especially now that already know the common fashion mistakes men make. Make it a point to dress appropriately and never get caught red handed with a wrong pair of shoes again!

    I thanks for the suggestions. I agree jeans are better being fit rather than too tight or too long or loose. I think if one prefers more defining trousers skinny fit is an alternative and looks better than skinny tight.
    On white socks it’s also true, although there are technically dress white socks as well, which are thinner and less flashy. Imho they only work with less contrasting outfits and matching the shirt.

    On cargo shorts, I have nothing against carrying a purse, but some people prefer having their onw style and like cargo shorts despite not being a trend anymore, like the 80’s.
