20 Fashion Laws That All Men Should Follow

20 Fashion Laws That All Men Should Follow

We don’t have to be as fashionable as Jonny Depp, the idea of fashion is to wear what makes you comfortable and feel good, however, there are some solid rules in fashion that we should not be broken. We have compiled a list of fashion laws (Yes, laws, not tips, nor suggestions) that all men should follow.

Rule #1. Don’t clip your phone or gadgets on your belt.

    Batman wears a utility belt. He also wears his underpants outside of his tights.

    Rule #2. Avoid wearing  square toed shoes.

      Unless you’re after that Legoman look.

      Rule #3. Get a navy blue suit 

        It’ll make you look slimmer.

        Rule #4. Get tailored suits and shirts.

          Not only makes you look smarter, it doesn’t make you look like someone who’s been on a crash diet and hasn’t had time to update their wardrobe.

          Rule #5. Fat wallets don’t make you look rich; try to use a moneyclip

            Nothing says ugly more than a big fat wallet.

            Rule #6. Pink socks should not be wore at all costs. 

              It makes you look like a dork.

              Rule #7. NEVER wear socks with sandals… 

                If you want to cover your feet, wear shoes.

                Rule #8. Put your collar down and don’t open more than two buttons.

                  It’s not possible to have a cold neck and hot chest at the same time.

                  Rule #9. The color of shoes and belt must match.

                    Color coordination!

                    Rule #10. Only wear athletic shoes when occasions allow you to do so.

                      Rule #11. Wear clothes that FIT your body shape. Not too tight or too loose.

                        Rule #12. Two objects of similar but not completely identical color don’t look good together. Unless they are designed to fit together.

                          Rule #13. Never wear jeans with jeans jacket

                            Rule #14. Never wear jeans with light colored running shoes 

                              Unless you are Steve jobs.

                              Rule #15. Don’t wear pants that don’t let you walk in full stride

                                Unless you want to look like you’re constipated when you walk.

                                Rule #16. No clothes that come pre-torn. 

                                Advertising

                                  It makes you look dirty and a throwback from a previous era.

                                  Rule #17. White socks and black shoes are a no-no.

                                    Unless you’re Michael Jackson.

                                    Rule #18. Do not wear crocs

                                      Rule #19. Wear just enough cologne. 

                                        Not the amount that makes everyone know that you are about to arrive

                                        Rule #20. Do not mix too many patterns on your clothes

                                          7 Ways To Make Exercise Fun For Everyone

                                          7 Ways To Make Exercise Fun For Everyone

                                          From Atkins to Paleo to eating gluten-free despite not being one of the rare few people afflicted with celiac disease, fad diets are everywhere. It drives me crazy because I believe these diets do more harm than good. Your body is made up of a variety of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals, and losing weight healthily isn’t possible when you fill your body with unnecessary synthetic plastics, sugars, and powders. There’s no easy button in life.

                                          What you need to do is exercise, which isn’t very appealing to many people. Workouts take work, so there’s already a stigma involved in going to the gym. Starting a healthy workout regimen becomes easier when you make it fun. If you want to live long and prosper, get off the couch and try these methods to turn your workout into a playout.

                                          1. Take the scenic route.

                                          Walking is an easy way to transition to a healthy lifestyle, and it’s free. Not only do you burn calories (check out this calculator for how many calories you burn based on your weight), but you see the world in a different way. Hiking in nature is great if you have access to it, but don’t let living in an urban area deter you from walking.

                                          Whenever I’m creatively stuck I get my head straight by walking a couple of miles. It’s also how I discover new paths, meet new people, and stumble upon hole-in-the-wall spots I never would have found otherwise. You could drive past the same place every day and never appreciate the beauty, nor even notice it’s there.

                                          2. Distract yourself.

                                          No matter what exercise routine you choose, use the time to meditate. You may wonder how marathon runners are able to put so many miles on their bodies. It’s because the pain from running that you avoid is something they’ve learned to harness to enter a transcendental state. If you’re aware of the benefits of meditation and exercise but don’t have time to do both, you can combine them, killing two birds with one healthy stone.

                                          3. Listen to music or podcasts.

                                          There are few experiences in life more pleasurable than turning up the music and drowning out the world around you. With so many podcasts and music apps available on your smartphone, you can easily find entertainment options perfectly suited to your personal tastes. Never worry what people may think of you when working out;instead, crank up the volume and get lost in your own world. You’ll be in shape before you know it.

                                          4. Bring a friend.

                                          Some people can’t go anywhere alone. While I highly recommend dining out and seeing a movie in a theater alone, having company while exercising is very helpful. It allows you to pace yourself with someone else, and gives you a coach to motivate and push harder than you may have on your own.

                                          Many exercises are safer when done with a friend, and some sports can only be played with another person. Involving others in your goals can mean the difference between success and failure. Just remember to continue exercising if the other person flakes, or they’ll be in control of your health.

                                          5. Accessorize.

                                          There are accessories that can make exercise easier, and sometimes buying a new toy can add some much-needed fun to your routine. With apps like RunKeeper and Nike+, your smartphone is capable of tracking your vitals and progress. Wrist weights can add a new dimension to your workout, and, if you exercise at night, a headlamp can help you see what’s in front of you so you don’t trip.

                                          For urban runners and power-walkers, one of the biggest obstacles is other people. It’s difficult to get in your meditative zone and enjoy your music when you constantly have to dodge people. To resolve this vexing issue, Runbell, a startup in Tokyo, has developed the runner’s version of the bicycle bell. With this lightweight brass bell warning people you’re approaching from behind, you’re free to maintain your transcendental state while continuing your workout. Head to their Kickstarter campaign to pledge your support.

                                          6. Compete.

                                          A little healthy competition can motivate you to push yourself further in your workout regimen. There are apps like Zombies, Run! which turns your run into a video game, and MyFitnessPal which allows you to connect with others in the exercise community. Whether you’re directly competing with a friend, an online community, or against your previous self, setting goals is the key to reaching them. Running with no destination can feel like an impossible task, and it’s easy to get distracted.

                                          7. Relax.

                                          The best part about exercising is how much you enjoy the downtime. If you think laying on your couch all day is enjoyable, it has nothing on that hour you spend as a couch potato after a rigorous workout. Jay-Z said it best, “in order to experience joy, you need pain.” The harder you push yourself while exercising, the better you’ll feel when you’re relaxing.

                                          With that said, don’t relax too much, or it loses the effect. It’s okay to indulge every so often. Treat yourself to some junk food you’re craving, imbibe a drink here and there, and spend a day vegging out on your couch. Staying healthy doesn’t have to be torture. Just turn down when you can and dedicate some time to better the health of your body. You only get one.
