Men's Fashion: 5 Rookie Mistakes

Top 5 Fashion Mistakes Men Make

With so many trends presented every season, it's no wonder many of you fabulous men tend to ignore them and just dress without considering your personal apparence. Sometimes, trends last so long, you forget to figure out your own style. So, I propose to return to the basics. Here, we go...

1. Oversized Suits
Or just oversized anything for that matter. It seems to me that most guys are wearing a size or two too big for them.
Larger clothing does not communicate whatever you think it does (power, masculinity, extreme weight loss?). It only ends up making you look small and sloppy. Instead, try these looks.

2. Bad Trousers
This is pretty much enemy number one for guys who think they have style across the country. Yes, those are some pretty cool camo chinos you’ve got on, but have you seen that pooling around your ankles? You look like a military midget.
I love seeing my man in a pair of camo pants, but remember, beloved man, get thyself to a tailor and have him custom fit your trousers. You will look and feel a lot more better.

Here are examples of well-fitted trousers.

3. Square Toe Shoes
I like to think that when it comes to fashion or just style in general, no item is ever truly out of the game. Just look at the resurgence we’ve seen in cardigans and tweed trousers that were previously associated with being a granddad.
But in the case of the square toe shoe, I think it’s safe to say we’ve put the nail in that coffin for good. Because, hey, guess what? Your feet aren’t square are they? So your shoes shouldn’t be either. 
P.S. A too pointy shoe is NOT attractive either. My advice? Go with the natural curve of your foot.

4. Untucked Office Shirts
Please, do not take your usual office dress shirt, leave it untucked and combine it with a pair of jeans. No, no, no. All this communicates to people is that you either don’t know how to dress yourself or you just don’t care about how you dress. Neither of which are going to help you on a night out. Keep it classy and sexy no matter what type of shirt you wear.

5. Trim Your Wallet Fat
In the same way that bad shoes can kill a great outfit, so can an awful wallet. There’s nothing worse than seeing a guy who is well dressed, nailing the details such as pattern mixing, good shoes and grooming only to see a huge wallet-sized bulge in his pocket. I can’t imagine how embarrassing it must be to have to pull that thing out at the bar or on a date.
I’m pretty sure you don’t need all those old receipts, business cards and expired coupons. Get yourself a slim credit card holder that can fit a couple of notes, cards and an ID and that’s it.
Keep it simple, please.
