55 Men’s Fashion Mistakes You Need To Stop Committing

55 Men’s Fashion Mistakes You Need To Stop Committing

Throughout a man’s growth from boy to man, he learns small lessons on how to look good- even amazing. However, sometimes good taste in style is not a man’s strong point.

Between everything a man does everyday, from school, work, or watching his favorite sports team, it can be hard to keep up with every fashion fad and avoid committing the following fashion crimes. With this in mind, I have compiled an exhaustive list of some of men’s style mistakes that I see a lot of men committing, especially when attempting to transcend to the title of “stylish” or fashionable.

Now before I start, it is important to address the “why” as some of you might be asking yourselves. Why should you invest time and money into improving your appearance? The following are formidable reasons to persuade you. Some might find these to be common sense, but I’m sure most of you will find them eye-awakening.

Reason #1 : Getting any job is easier when you look good

Fashion Crimes

    Reason #2 : Attracting the opposite sex

    Some of you might want to improve your fashion sense to impress the girl that caught your eye rather than trying to impress a manager to get a job. This is a perfect excuse to improve your appearance. Looking like you got your clothes from the Lost and Found won’t improve your chances of impressing your “soul-mate”.

    Relationships

      Reason #3 : Confidence

      Did you know that looking great improves your confidence? Just try it out if you haven’t noticed it yet. Go out wearing average clothes and see how you feel, and the next day, wear the best clothes you have, and do the same. You will notice a big difference!

      These are the simplest reasons for why you should improve your style. Now it’s time for the ultimate list of men’s style mistakes that you should avoid.

      55 Fashion Mistakes By Men You Need To Avoid:

      1. Wearing worn out and beaten down shoes:

      I don’t care how good the other parts of your outfit look like, ultimately, if you fail to wear shoes that are clean and in good shape, then your whole outfit will be a mess.

      Solution: Spend the extra cash to buy quality shoes that last a long time.

        2. Deep v-necks:

        Oh, how much I hate these t-shirts. Please for the sake of your fashion sense, and also humanity, don’t wear these.

        3. Reliance on branding:

          Brands are not what make up your clothes, so if you are currently proud of simply buying clothes from any brand senseless of style, then you are wasting your precious money.

          Solution: Buy clothes based on how they fit, feel, and look, rather than the brand badge they carry.

          4. Leather pants, t-shirts and hats…:

          Any item of clothing that isn’t a leather jacket shouldn’t be leather. Simple as that- especially leather pants! Just buy regular jeans or khaki pants and you will look one hundred times more attractive.

          5. Socks with sandals:

            It is simply ugly; I don’t have more to say about it. Sandals are meant to be worn with bare feet. If your feet are not parts of your body that you are comfortable showing, then avoid open toe shoes.

            6. Wearing sandals all the time:

            Sandals were designed to be worn on the beach and to pools. They are seasonal, so don’t make them your everyday wear.

            7. Leaving clothes around your house floor:

            Leaving clothes lying everywhere in your home will eat away their good condition, so take care of them.

            Solution: Hang your clothes in your wardrobe, and fold your t-shirts with other items neatly. This will help maintain their newness.

            8. Wearing sunglasses inside:

            You might think you look cool and unstoppable, but you are completely wrong. Sunglasses are made for the sun, so please don’t wear them inside. Additionally, they will make you look much less approachable to both men and women than if you had chosen to show your entire face.

            9. White jeans:

            I used to see these a lot back when I lived in Germany; I believe they are more of a euro-fashion trend. However, if you currently live in the states, then I say STOP.

            Solution: When choosing jean colors, choose from the basic and dark colors like black, blue, dark blue, grey etc. They will help make you look classic.

            10. Yellow, red, pink, purple… Jeans:

            This relates to the above point. Don’t choose bright colors for your jeans; basic colors are enough to make you look sophisticated and attractive.

            11. Buying clothes that you think will fit you later on:

            It doesn’t matter how much muscle you think you will build in the next year, or how much fat you plan on losing- live in the now! Buy the clothes that fit you, so you don’t mentally torture yourself.

            Solution: After accomplishing your goal, reward yourself with buying new clothes.

            12. Mother shopping:

            Getting a little help from your mom or female friend is okay. However you are a man, and that should mean making your own choices and buying your clothes for yourself.

            13. The “I woke up and I don’t care” look:

            Wearing the same hoodies, sweatpants, and flip flops you lounge with inside but outside, will do much damage to your appearance. For your sake, don’t go out with the same clothing you wear at home lounging.

            14. The visible crack

            This is both funny and disgustingly unattractive. Please make sure that your clothing provides full coverage to your behind in order to avoid any unnecessary exposure during times of crouching, or bending.

            15. Sagging:

            Nobody wants to see the boxers you are wearing everywhere you go out, so please pull up your pants.

            16. White socks with black shoes:

            They simply don’t match, so avoid this style mistake unless you are trying to moonwalk.

            17. Wearing terrible-quality shirts:

            You have to invest in yourself to look amazing. Don’t devalue yourself by purchasing poor quality material.

            Solution: Spend the extra 10-15$, and buy a quality shirt online or at any respectable store. Buying high quality clothes is actually cheaper when you consider their life time. Sure a 5$ shirt is cheap and affordable, but it will never last! Check out the ultimate guide to t-shirts for expert advice.

            18. Wearing wife-beaters:

              You are not Carl Johnson (CJ) from GTA San-Andreas, so cut out the act.

              19. Wearing over-sized ties:

              Don’t let your tie fall beyond your belt line, if you want to avoid looking immature.

              20. Extremely long jeans:

              Jeans are not meant to be worn in a way where your shoes trap them with every step. If you value your looks, jean quality, and money, avoid buying jeans that are beyond your pant-length.

              21. Large pocket jeans:

              I don’t understand why these types of jeans were created, perhaps they were originally meant for blue-collared workers who needed the extra space for equipment. Unless you fit that category, do not wear these.

              22. Mismatching colors between shoes and belts:

              Don’t wear brown belts with black shoes and vice versa.

              Advertising

              Solution: Belts and shoes must be the same color, and if you can, match the material too.

              23. Decorated and embellished jeans:

              You are not a fairy, so avoid the sparkling jeans. In your attempt to be cool, you achieve the opposite when choosing to endorse this style no-no.

              24. Humorous pieces:

              Don’t be the person who wears a funny shirt just to catch people’s attention. The attention is not usually positive, and you will definitely scare the ladies away.

              25. Fur coats:

                I have very important advice for these: light a fire and burn the fur coat- or simply avoid spending the money to buy one.

                26. Baggy dress shirts:

                Dress shirts are meant to fit your body as snugly as possible, while also allowing free movement. Do not buy dress shirts that hang like rectangular boxes on your upper body.

                Solution: Buy a smaller size that fits properly. If you suffer from any body disproportions, then get your dress shirts tailored.

                27. Tighty-whitey underpants:

                Avoid scaring your girlfriend, and purchase yourself quality underwear. A popular brand to help with your underwear choices would be Calvin Klein, however there are plenty of quality brands out there to choose from.

                28. Tilted baseball hats:

                There is nothing more immature than wearing baseball hats, never mind tilting them to one side in attempt to make yourself look “cooler”.

                29. Excessive jewelry:

                Men's Fashion Crimes

                  Unless you’re being featured on a gangster rap music video with Young Thug, please avoid large jewelry and limit the pieces to 1-2 in total.

                  30. Too much facial grooming:

                  Unless you are a male model, threading or plucking your eyebrows and giving yourself an overly-groomed or refined appearance will definitely take away from your manhood. You don’t want the ladies to feel like you’re competing with them.

                  31. Wearing the wrong undershirt with your dress shirt:

                  Instead of wearing crew neck t-shirts under your dress shirts, opt for a v-neck that will accentuate your dress shirt style. You don’t want a crew neck filling in the gap between your dress shirt and your upper chest.

                  32. Wearing sport jerseys everywhere you go:

                  Men's Fashion Crimes

                    Jerseys are meant to be worn when you are going to a sports game or when you are at home. They aren’t applicable on a daily basis.

                    33. Wearing clothes that are not appropriate for the climate:

                    There is no need for you to wear a raincoat when it is 80 degrees outside. The same goes for the cold weather. Adapt your clothing to the climate.

                    34. Wearing too many colors at once:

                    Men's Fashion Crimes : Too much contrast

                      Don’t wear yellow jeans, a blue shirt, a red hat and white shoes all at once. Keep the contrast to 2-3 times at most to prevent your attire from looking like a costume.

                      35. Tucking in t-shirts:

                      Tucking in your t-shirts will give you the middle-aged father look. For the sake of your style sense, don’t tuck your shirts in.

                      Advertising

                      Solution: Get them tailored or invest some money and buy shirts that fit your body perfectly.

                      36. Wearing the most ridiculous sunglasses:

                      Men's Fashion Crimes : Sunglasses

                        You are not competing in a cycling race, are you? So drop those sport shades right now.

                        Solution: If you want sunglasses, buy quality sunglasses like Ray Bans, Tom Ford, Topman’s… rather than getting cheap immature sunglasses. Sunglasses are just an addition so if you are low on money, I suggest you invest in the other more important pieces of your outfit.

                        37. Sneakers with dress pants

                        This makes me cringe every time I see it. I remember back during my high school graduation, a kid wore Jordan’s with his navy suit and graduation coat. As he walked on the stage in front of a 2000+ audience, everyone’s face was like “really?” If you think wearing dress shoes is not cool, then good luck at every job interview you ever hope to attend (Spoiler Alert: you probably won’t get the job).

                        Solution: Have one or two dress shoes ready when something important, like a job interview, comes up.

                        Men's Fashion Crimes

                          38. Popping up your collars:

                          Again, you are not being featured in a music video, so fold that collar back in its place. It’s that simple.

                          39. Baggy boxers:

                          These are usually paired with baggy jeans. Sagging really takes away from your perceived sophistication.

                          Solution: Don’t buy saggy or baggy boxers.

                          40. Wearing skinny jeans while overweight:

                          Wearing skinny jeans while you are overweight will likely attract more attention to the fact, and it will most likely bring down your self-esteem.

                          Solution: buy yourself a pair of jeans that will flatter your body.

                          Men's Fashion Crimes

                            41. Over washing:

                            Every time an item of clothing is washed, it loses some of its quality and condition.

                            Solution: Take care of your clothing before it gets dirty, otherwise you will have to wash it, and if that keeps up, the quality of your item deteriorates. Better prevent than cure. Also, only dry clean your suits when they really need it.

                            42. Wearing jean shorts:

                              There is nothing more unflattering than jean shorts in my eyes. Unless you are John Cena, opt for a good pair of chino shorts.

                              43. Flame shirts:

                              Do not wear t-shirts that have the same flame designs as the t-shirts you wore when you were 12. Avoid these unnecessary designs, and opt for classier prints.

                              44. Excessive hair product:

                              Too much hair product will make your hair look unintentionally greasy and over the top.

                                45. Logos and designer t-shirts:

                                You don’t work for that brand, so why are you wearing these? Most importantly, why are you spending more money on these than regular, better looking t-shirts?

                                Advertising

                                46. Worn out socks:

                                Socks are the cheapest items on the market, so don’t wait until yours are in horrible shape.

                                Solution: Get yourself some new socks; socks don’t have to be from a popular brand, you can buy them for a fair price at any clothing store.

                                Men's Fashion Crimes : Socks

                                  47. Pants that are too short:

                                  If you can clearly see your socks below you dress pants’ hemline, than they are too small for you. Make sure you’re pants fit your leg length.

                                  48. Being fooled by “quality” mall brands:

                                  You may think wearing a popular quality brand logo on your shirt qualifies you into being fashionable and stylish, but you are only ripping yourself off. Some brands are perceived as “quality” even though they are overly-priced, poor quality garments, stamped with cliché branding.

                                  Solution: You are better off choosing attire based on their fit and quality rather than on their popular reputations. You will save money and look better. Learning to differentiate between popular brands and quality brands is a very valuable skill.

                                  49. Cargo shorts:

                                  Never ever wear these. There is no occasion for them to be worn either. Like I said before, substitute cargo and jean shorts with fashionable chino ones.

                                  50. Not tucking in your dress shirts:

                                  Dress shirts- unlike t-shirts- are meant to be tucked. If you really are the type who never tucks anything in, then at least make the shirt shorter, so that it doesn’t hang too low.

                                  51. Blindly following trends:

                                  There is no need to follow trends all the time. Trends fade over time, you don’t want to purchase something that won’t be “in” later.

                                  Solution: Instead of wasting more money on trendy clothes, invest in high quality staple attire first. After that, you can spend money on trendy clothes.

                                  52. Short sleeved shirt with a tie:

                                  I don’t know where this fad originated from, but whoever started it should be ashamed.

                                  53. Square toe shoes:

                                  These types of shoes were never acceptable. They will completely destroy your fashion sense. They are big, awkward and outdated, so do not wear them. Just the same, do not opt for shoes that are overly pointed, or that have the potential of making you look like an elf.

                                    54. Not ironing your dress shirt:

                                    You should always take the time to iron your dress shirt. Don’t wear dress shirts that have been squashed or wrinkled. It only takes 10-15 minutes to iron, and your shirt will make you look 100% more stylish.

                                    55. Stained clothes:

                                    Don’t ever go out with a stain and expect people not to notice it. I know what you were thinking when you decided to wear that stained shirt. “No. The stain is too small, people won’t know that it is there.” I am here to ask you, why are you taking that chance? Trust me, most people will notice.

                                    Solution: Wash the item and get the stain off; stop wearing the item in public and get yourself new attire if you are unable to do this. This tip is straight forward, but nonetheless, a good reminder.

                                    What Next?

                                    If you want to take your fashion sense to the next level, then just knowing what to avoid is not enough; you must also know what to wear to look great. If you want more, check out the author bio below and be sure to check out Yohan’s other excellent articles.

                                    13 Tips to Face Your Fears, Grow with It and Enjoy the Ride

                                    13 Tips to Face Your Fears, Grow with It and Enjoy the Ride

                                    Fear. I spend my life talking about fear — fighting fears, fixing fears and understanding fears. And yet I doubt I get 10 calls a year from people saying “Mandie can you help me fix my fear?”

                                    Why is this so critically important to you?

                                    The realization for me is that fear is not the fundamental driving force in your life it’s what regardless of whether I’m talking to a doctor, a teacher, a CEO’s, a senior citizens or teenager – every single one of those conversations has a direct correlation with your world.

                                    Fear can range from the overwhelming desire to look away or stop in your tracks to literally fleeing your country and the life you knew. In this article, I will share you with 13 tips to face your fears and enjoy the ride.

                                    1. Know That Fear Is Real, but Can Be Overcome

                                    Right now around the world people are facing fear — real fear. Fear that I pray my children and I will never experience. Does that lessen my fears or your fears in your relativity safe 21st century life?

                                    When I look at the world we all live in, I find that fear like so many other emotions can mean so many different things to so many different people:

                                    • The child who has to be physically dragged to their first day of school.
                                    • The man facing the judge.
                                    • The woman with her hand poised over the buttons over her phone because she has to walk down a dark corridor late at night alone.
                                    • The man as the surgeon says “count backwards from 10 Mr Smith.”
                                    • The woman that’s told “We are sorry, we can’t help you.”
                                    • The man that faces the empty circle of a gun and prays for his very existence.

                                    These and a million more (Portrayed in every kind of movie, book or song you could imagine) are what make us human. We face fear and somehow move forward or are stopped in our tracks.

                                    Like the rabbit in the headlights of the car that veers off through the field away from the tyres of the car or stays still praying for salvation. Like someone will save them. Sound familiar?

                                    Fear is huge. Fear is everywhere and yet fear can be overcome, controlled and can even be a power for good.

                                    2. Accept Your Fear

                                    Firstly if you aren’t facing the barrel of the gun, atrocities that make the news or impeding death, that’s a good start. However it doesn’t mean your fear is any less real.

                                    We are quick to say “I can’t moan, my life is not as bad as X.” While in theory, that’s honorable your appreciation of Mr. or Mrs. X’s horrific life won’t change anything directly. So accept your fear is relative to you.

                                    And here’s what can be done.

                                    3. Get Some Perspective

                                    I found myself asking anyone that would answer “what is your worst fear”. The answer that intrigued me the most came from my daughter (15 years old and she usually has a copy of Fight the Fear – my book – in her school bag so she can help someone else be as positive and confident as her. No matter what life throws up.)

                                    And her fear, surprised me — heights. I pointed out that we live in a sprawling bungalow (one storey) and the highest she goes is two storeys’ at school! She laughed but added, fear isn’t like that Mum. I know it’s not a real fear, but it’s like when you stand on a chair and feel unsafe.

                                    That girl will go far. Because she truly gets fear.

                                    We know something is scary and yet we still do it. Why? Because we have a perspective to the fear. When you lose perspective, it can feel too big, and too scary.

                                    So look around you to get some perspective on your fear:

                                    • Are you really at risk?
                                    • Will this kill you?
                                    • Which leads us on to..
                                    • If the worse was to happen what would it be?

                                    4. Hold a Hand

                                    As a coach, it is my job to holds someone’s metaphorical hand and help them face a fear.

                                    Like the child petrified of the thunder storm or the teen that can’t get back in a car again after failing their test, your job as a parent is to reassure, encourage, enable and motivate someone to face something that ideally they never would choose to again.

                                    We know many of our fears aren’t real. However, it is only when someone guides us with love, respect, lack of judgement and safety are we able to get through fear. And trust me, you can get through your fears. I’ve seen it so many times.

                                    Ask yourself:

                                    • If the worse were to happen, what would that be?
                                    • Could that really happen?
                                    • If the worse did happen, how would you recover?
                                    • If the worse were to happen, what would you need to do next?

                                    By seeing fear as not the end destination but part of being human, you can see through it’s wily evil ways and move forward.

                                    5. Know Whose Hand You Hold Either Physically or Emotionally

                                    This helps with fears for the rest of your life.

                                    Think of someone you can always rely on (and ideally you won’t just answer yourself because that adds a lot of pressure to your existence!) And you will find that you’ve already found a way to get through fear.

                                    Advertising

                                    The beauty of this is that it means that fear becomes part of life not something to be feared and shied away from.

                                    It means you know you can turn to your friend, partner, colleague, parent, sibling and say “Right I need to deal with this, and I’m going to need you to help me.”

                                    For one moment, think about it from the other person’s view point. When we get to help other people we feel valued, loved, respected and lots of other positive emotions and we get a good dose of positive chemicals setting off in our bodies too.

                                    Your fear, and your determination to fight it, helped someone else too. Now that’s cool right?

                                    6. Understand That There Are Some Things Fear Will Never Touch

                                    I like to find role models in life — people who have faced heroism, history changing moments, war, atrocities, miracles, life saving inventions.

                                    Not everyone was looking for greatness, however they all found it. And one of my favourite books to date is written about Alistair Urquhart, the forgotten highlander. If this doesn’t get turned into a film in the future, then no man’s story is likely to.

                                    Alistair went through the most horrific experiences in the 2nd world war. If you think of one of the awful things that happened back then in our world, Alistair went through at least 3 of them! Asked afterwards how did you cope? He talked about how whatever they did to his body, no matter how they starved, tortured, threatened or mocked him, they couldn’t have his mind. In his mind he was free.

                                    Of all the people’s voices I’ve heard in my head over the years, this is one of those statements that reminds me anything is possible if you have faith and hope.

                                    Look for the things in life that fear can’t touch. They will create confidence and faith for the future, whatever you face. And they will give you a sense of why being you is awesome.

                                    Of all the billions of people on this planet, no one will have an answer identical to yours!

                                    7. Process Your Fears to Carry on with Life

                                    Being brave is not about sticking your chest out and smiling regardless of what hell you endure. It is about finding a way to emotionally process your fears to be able to keep going.

                                    I have a tool kit of things I can rely on – tools, strategies, techniques. They include people to hug or talk to, music. hobbies, walks on the beach and even my favourite food. It sounds mad but at the times where I have questioned “how will I get through this?” I’ve found immense joy in doing the most unlikely of thing that makes me smile.

                                    It may be a short lived moment of happiness. However, it reminded that nothing stays the same and I can find away.

                                    One client told me that it was crazy when it felt like their world was falling around their ears to run a bath to the brim (you don’t waste water) get the best bath oils, light too many candles, lock the door and drink a glass of bubbly (champagne is only for special occasions.)

                                    Did that moment fix the disaster that my clients life felt? No, however it gave them a moment of calm and the brain is far quicker to find solutions, resolve and motivation to keep going when you do that.

                                    It may feel like madness to do something you love, however it can be a powerful way to help you find solutions to the fears you face in life.

                                    8. Assume the Worse

                                    If you read the statement from the client above. Notice how they assumed it was wrong to fill the bath up to the top? How bubbly is only for special occasions?

                                    Think how naughty they felt to be doing something that was not allowed?

                                    • Think about what age it may have made them feel?
                                    • Think about how they feel about champagne?
                                    • What special moments it’s been a part of in their lives?

                                    And you can see how the assumptions they made about their “right” to have these things was not healthy.

                                    When I drag the assumptions out of people’s words for them to see, they are often struck by how negative the words make them feel.

                                    Don’t assume your words aren’t impacting on you. You can go through fear and actually enjoy the ride when you take the time to understand how you are letting words get to you.

                                    9. Take a Fear That Feels Insurmountable Right Now.

                                    If you were to repeat it to me out loud, what would you say?

                                    Would you have blame on yourself in there? Would you assume others can do it and it’s just you? Would you feel small, unsuccessful, useless, unworthy?

                                    Usually, when you do this exercise, you are able to spot the untruths that run wild in your head convincing you that you are doomed. And rarely when we are faced with our assumptions is there is a lot of evidence to them.

                                    10. You Are Not Defined by Your Fear

                                    One fear does not define your life – be mindful of that. It is likely to lead you to thinking of all the times you’ve succeeded and bring a moment of calm, confidence and faith back to you.

                                    11. Go with Fear

                                    When you learn to go with fear, you could find yourself actually having fun, no seriously – having fun.

                                    I have a few amazing clients I’m working with right now who would describe themselves as life long worriers, or pessimists. In the past that has served them well, enabling them to keep safe, steer clear of risks and even develop strategies in the event of disasters. However, now they find it’s becoming hard to break the cycle and they really want to because it’s holding them back.

                                    Notice how they’ve found their hidden fears and want to face them?

                                    One client said “I knew this was going to be tough, and I knew I couldn’t fight it alone and I knew you would be the one to help me.” Before I sat an incredibly successful, confident, capable business owner with a family and a social life to die for.

                                    However, I’ve learned that the most successful looking lives can hide things that impact on life, success, love, happiness and business.

                                    We didn’t start with the fear that they felt was holding them back, we broke the fear down, and found lots of little obstacles that had been deemed as “life” and “unchangeable” and “that’s just the way it is” by developing awareness to the little steps on the road to their obstacles to happiness and success they were able to tackle them in a different way.

                                    12. Discover Great Skills in Your Scary Moments

                                    And in that clients words “I came here to work with you to grow my company, and my own personal skills. I didn’t expect to get the children to be cleaning up after themselves and my partner being more attentive! It all feels a little magic.”

                                    The moral is that out of the scariest of moments, we can find great skills we didn’t know we had. Find better, healthier, happier ways to live and find ways to enjoy life more. (And have a bit of magic!)

                                    What a great place to be in ready for the next fear that thinks it’s going to get in the way of you, right?

                                    13. Own Your Fear

                                    Think back over these tips and come up with at least one example for each one. Write them down. Put them on your phone. Turn them into a piece of art. Turn them into a poem. Frame them. Go for a fast walk across the fields, beach, down town and repeat these things in your head to the sound of your feet on the ground.

                                    We rarely take the time to appreciate how far we have come, how much we can achieve or what we are capable of – by really owning the tips in this article you will have given your brain a big fat dose of “Damn right I can do this!” and the motivation and accountability to say “Let’s find a way” through any fear.

                                    You can’t help but feel good when you see that can you? And fear doesn’t stand a chance, does it?
