Common Fashion Mistakes Committed by Men

By Rachel E. Levinson Subscribe to RSS | December 6th 2011 | Views:

Most of the time, people judge you by your appearance and particularly the dress you wear. It is therefore necessary that you avoid the common fashion mistakes most men commit. If you do not wish to look odd or clumsy in a social or formal gathering, it is best you know what are the common fashion mistakes men make.

• Avoid wearing a necktie with a short sleeve shirt as short sleeve shirts are widely perceived as underdressed apparel. If you want to stay looking professional and confident, stick to long-sleeve shirts when wearing ties.

• Button-Down collar dress shirts are not acceptable for late evening events and they are also not to be worn with double-breasted suit.

• Remember that trousers should be long enough to cover your socks, and socks should cover your shins even when you cross your legs. When you cross your legs, you should not be showing any part of your legs. It is indecent when you let other’s see your hairy leg peeking over your socks.

• Shoes are an item that too many men overlook but you need to keep your shoes clean – free of scratches and dirt. Your shoes should be well-polished and the style should be appropriate for the occasion. If you are wearing a suit, wear lace-up shoes. Wear socks that match your trousers in color and style.

• If you are wearing belts, remember they should match your shoes. Also, the finish of the belt and shoes need to match. In other words, if your shoes are shiny, your belt should be shiny as well. Besides, your ties should reach your belt line.

• Wearing a tie that’s too short or too long can make a man look slovenly. Have your ties properly knotted with a dimple under the knot. Clips and tacks are out of date. The necktie knot should hide the collar button.

• Please know that the bottom buttons of men's jackets are not intended to be buttoned. Single Breasted suits can have one, two, three or more buttons. With two button jackets only the top button is fastened.

• Four or more button jackets may be designed to fasten all the buttons including the bottom button. If the bottom button of a four button jacket can be closed without a noticeable pulling of the fabric, you may choose to close it.

• Suit jackets and sports jackets should fit properly which includes showing 1/4" to 1/2” of linen or shirtsleeve beyond the jacket sleeve.

• It’s important to match the color of your clothes to your skin tone. If you have dark skin, you can either wear dark colors or bright colors that match the strength of your skin color. If you have fair skin, lighter colors will prove more flattering. Wear clothes that are properly pressed and wrinkle-free.

• Limit each of your outfits to a maximum of three colors or shades to present a well-coordinated look. When putting together an outfit, stick to complementary and analogous colors.

• Excessively baggy clothes will make you look sloppy and clownish. If your body type makes it difficult to find well-fitting clothes off the rack, get them tailored.

• All the jewelry a man needs is a watch that will match different outfits and a wedding ring if he is married. Do not go around wearing three rings, bracelets, and a bunch of necklaces at the same time and become a butt of ridicule.
