There are two things in this world that are harder to mix than oil and water, and that is men and fashion. We are not stereotyping or anything; anyone who is reading this article would agree that more men tend to care less about fashion when compared to women. There are quite a few men who take fashion seriously, but a lot have no idea what to do and just fling things. Here we look at some of the most common mistakes that men tend to make. It is never too late to rectify and look the part regardless of where you are.
- For starters, we advise men to choose their wardrobe wisely. Most guys tend to put on the first t-shirt they find and pair it up with a jacket. The only hitch is that when you pair a t-shirt with a jacket make sure that the t-shirt is a solid color without any printed design. The jacket over a t-shirt is a great look but only if the t-shirt has no design on it. The design draws too much attention to the t-shirt alone and overshadows the overall look.
- A completed look is always going to be better than an incomplete look. For example, say you want to dress formally for an occasion. Always go with the right tools and remember to tuck in your shirt. What happens is that most guys pick out a great shirt but don’t compliment it with a tie nor do they tuck the shirt in. If you are going for a casual look, then you don’t have to go overboard, but if you are planning to go for a formal event, then you have to put in the effort to look the part.
- Most guys tend to have a black suit that they overuse a lot. There is also this misconception that colored suits are off-putting. But if anything, a well-tailored colored suit can make the right impression. Firstly, it shows that you have a keen eye for fashion and that you care about how you dress. Secondly, black is not ideal for everyone. Black is the most commonly worn color in the world, but a grey suit might just be perfect for you. So the next time you go shopping, make sure to look at different options before you buy a suit. Having different options when it comes to suiting is also a good idea since you can mix it up based on the occasion.
