At times, us men don’t make the smartest decisions when it comes to fashion and whilst the new generation of young men are fashion conscious, there are still many of us who struggle with our clothing selections. Fear not men of the World, we are here today to give you some top tips of what to do and what not to do with regards to your fashion choices.
If you want to improve how you dress and how you look when you are out and about then read on to find out what you may have been doing wrong, and what you should be doing better.
What Not to Do
First we are going to start off with some fashion crimes which you need to avoid at all costs.
Socks and Sandals
Unsightly, unappealing and unfashionable, for years now people have been banging the drum about socks and sandals in an effort to stop this most heinous of fashion crimes and yet still, people continue to use this awful combination. Fella’s if you fancy wearing a pair of sandals then there is nothing wrong with that, but leave the socks in the drawer.
Unless you are living in downtown L.A. and a member of the Bloods or Crips, then jeans that hang half way down your buttocks should be completely avoided. Nobody wants to see what underwear you have on and even fewer people want to hang out with someone with gangster jeans, buy jeans that fit and more importantly, get a belt.
I’m not entirely sure why this happens so much with men as opposed to women but far too often I see blokes in the street with clothing that is just not the right size. Over and under-sized clothing looks terrible and does nothing for you, make sure it fits or don’t bother wearing it.
What You Should be Doing
Let’s take a look at how you can up your fashion game.
Reading fashion magazines is not just for women, you should be doing your fair share of research too if you want to find a new and exciting style. Stay in touch and find great tips in men’s fashion magazines.
Find Your Size
Not all styles work for every size and if you want to learn to look great then have an understanding of what your body shape is and how you can best use it. If you are of the bigger variety for example, then stay away from skinny jeans and try to find flattering patterns. Look around on the street and find someone of a similar shape to you who looks good and take note.
Try and Ask
The best way to improve your fashion choices is to ask those around you, your family, your partner or your friends. Try out new fashion styles and ask them if it thinks that it works, the mirror is not always your friend and you can get far better advice from those who care about you than trusting your own instinct.
