6 Fashion Disasters That Every Man Should Avoid At Work

6 Fashion Disasters That Every Man Should Avoid At Work

A great taste in fashion is not always a guy’s strength. Between responsabilities at work and in private life, most men usually do not have enough time for petty issues like being up to date on what’s new in lifestyle and fashion magazines. Men are not always fond of what’s hot and what’s not for the season. There are plenty of fashion-challenged men out there who seek help on this front more than anyone else. Here’s a short guide to 6 fashion disasters that every man should keep away from. Don’t get left behind. Read this now.

#1 Mistake: Wearing Colored Or White Jeans

Some men do their best to express personality through the medium of color, yet this should never apply to their jeans or trousers. Obviously, they should take a tip from women and wear clothes and styles that perfectly suit their body type.

While it’s true that fashion is channeling the 1980s right now, things are not always like that.

The Fix

    Avoid green, yellow, or red jeans. Avoid clothes your girlfriend wears. Of course, there are some guys that can get away with wearing anything they like — like Johnny Depp, for instance. The rest of the male species should avoid wearing colored jeans.

    Remember: you’re a man, not a boy. And we’re talking about work here.

    #2 Mistake: The Visible Undershirt

    Oftentimes, when you lose the office noose you realize what it hid. When you take off your tie, the top button of your shirt often follows suit. The undershirt’s crew neck never looks good.

    The Fix

      There’s no need to ditch that undershirt — it’s a must. Sweat stains can be a bigger sin. Opt for a V-neck undershirt instead, to make sure it stays hidden. Go for heather grey — it’s way less visible through light shirts.

      #3 Mistake: Mismatching Belt And Shoes

      A very common faux pas, guys often forget about the sin they commit by forgetting the color rule for belts and shoes. Know that your belt should match your shoes if you want to dress nicely. It’s perfectly fine if the quality of the leather differs, but brown belts and black shoes are a very big no-no.

        Opt for the same family of color. There’s little room for flexibility when it comes to your office look. Keep your shoes clean and be stylish.

        #4 Mistake: Wearing Inappropriately Colored Socks

        Your socks should always be the same color as your pants when wearing a suit. Don’t match the socks with the shoes, that is a frequent mistake.

        The Fix:

        socks and shoes

          Opt for navy socks when wearing a navy suit, and not brown socks to match the shoes. However, things are quite different when it comes to light-colored suits. Pair it up with some darker socks, yet make sure that your socks are a shade lighter than your shoes.

          #5 Mistake: Tying A Tie Knot That Is Not The Right Size

          You need practice to pull off a tie knot like the one in the below image or like Merril Hoge (the famous American football player who used to get the tie knot wrong). Make sure you tie a four in hand knot for smaller collars.

          The Fix

          Tie Knot

            Balance the size of your tie knot by taking into account the width of your suit lapels and collar — and keep away from clip-on ties.

            #6 Mistake: Suits And Backpacks

            It might be a very wise decision, switching the classy briefcase for a casual backpack, in order to have a more practical way of carting your kit to work. However, there should be some limits. If what you’re using is riddled with pockets and velcro, save it for travelling and hiking.

            The Fix:

            Men's Bag

              A backback can be worn with a suit if it passes some tests: muted colors, premium fabrics, a contemporary shape. Yup, you’ve nailed it: leather in brown, blue or black, with enough space for a laptop and a spare layer, plus high quality hardware.

              10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

              10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

              Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

              Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

              So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

              Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

              Advertising

              Video Summary

              1. It is easier.

              When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

              2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

              Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

              3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

              Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

              4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

                If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

                5. It could lead to better sleep.

                Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

                6. It can help your skin.

                For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

                7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

                Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

                8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

                Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

                9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

                For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

                10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

                  Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

                  Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

                  Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

                  Sleep well with your naked body!

                  With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

                  Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
