Every man wants to dress better, look nicer, and show off his style and class. Men’s fashion outfits are usually less versatile than women’s, but that does not mean that you have to wear the same things over and over again. In the last decade, we’ve witnessed great progress in men’s trends, but mistakes are part of the process as learning new things goes. Continue reading if you want to learn more about the biggest no-no’s in men’s fashion, how to avoid these mistakes, and how to fix them if needed.
Wrong dress shirts
Dress shirts are overall incredible. They are a great way to take your style one step further and to show off your class. However, some shirts are just a big no. If you choose to go with a dress shirt, try to steer away from patterns that look bad. If you are not sure what looks good on you, go with single-colour shirts or something with thin vertical lines.
White socks and black shoes
This is the worst thing you could do to your style. White socks go with almost nothing, and you should try to get rid of them. If you want to express your personality, you can go with some fun socks, but you should match your socks with your suit if you want to show class. You can also experiment with some subtle prints and patterns or match them to your shirt or tie.
Suits that don’t fit you
Suits show timeless elegance, and they can be worn on pretty much every occasion, but you must know the right fit for you. They should never look baggy, and if you’ve lost some weight, you need to purchase new ones. On the same note, they should never be too tight on you, and you should be able to button them without looking stuffed. The right fit will make the biggest difference.
You are free to express your style, and you should wear anything you feel good in, but some shirts are just better left in your past. In the late 90s and early 2000s, we got used to heavy-printed shirts, and some people still wear them. It would help if you were not one of those people. They usually look bad, they are too much, and they won’t do anything to flatter your body or style.
The wrong type of shorts
Shorts can be a great thing to wear on a casual Sunday, and they can be pretty practical in the summer. However, there are some shorts that you should not wear. Cargo pants are a thing from the past, and you don’t need that many pockets. If you are interested in wearing something like that, choosing a slim chino will make you look classy and sophisticated.
Dress clothes and sneakers
There was a trend not too long ago when celebrities on the red carpet were seen wearing suits and sneakers. There are not too many people in the world who can get away with that, and chances are, you are not one of them. When you want to look elegant, you should choose suits and pair them with nice dress shoes. For a casual brunch, you are free to wear slim jeans and some neat sneakers.
The last thing we are going to talk about is half-tucked shirts. That won’t bring anything to your style, and you may look messy. People will think that you tried to tuck the shirt in, but you didn’t pay enough attention. Choose one or the other, but never go with half-tucked shirts. Dress shirts should always be tucked in.
Remember these things the next time you are dressing up and choosing your outfit. Know that even the smallest details will make the biggest difference, and remember that classy style is much more than brands. Invest in high-quality items, but make sure they always fit you right. If you are not sure what you should wear, it is better to stay safe and go with the classics than make a huge mistake.
