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

                                          5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Who You Are

                                          5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Who You Are

                                          When it comes to being yourself, there can be a lot of pressure from the outside world as it tries to influence who you are. Living in a society that is constantly developing, it’s important for you to always be yourself from the inside out.

                                          When you deeply know yourself and the boundaries that you have set, you are more likely to experience a fulfilling and rewarding life. Without knowing yourself and establishing those boundaries, you can easily be pushed around and end up on a dirt path.

                                          So how to be who you are and always be yourself?

                                          “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” – Matthew 7:13-14

                                          You have the option of taking the path that is broad or taking the path that is narrow. You can either conform to what life wants you to be, or have the courage to remain true to yourself throughout the years. It’s definitely a challenge to have a strong sense of self when we are constantly getting distracted and being influenced by the media and society’s way of life. But if you want to reach your fullest potential in life, it all starts with being yourself.

                                          Why should you always be yourself? Because you will:

                                          1. Live in Alignment With Your Values and Beliefs

                                          Being yourself is all about knowing what you believe in and the values that you live by. When you are not yourself, you will take on the values and beliefs of others. This is when you start conforming to other people’s expectations and way of thinking.

                                          When you know your values and why you do what you do, you will live according to your own values and beliefs.

                                          2. Establish Your Own Identity

                                          When you are able to have a solid foundation of being you, you are establishing your own sense of identity. No matter what happens in your life, you will always know who you are.

                                          There will be times where you may feel lost or distracted, but if you have your own identity you’ll be able to get back on the right path. Without establishing your own identity, you may easily conform and lose yourself.

                                          3. Build Courage

                                          It takes a great amount of courage when you decide to take the path that goes against the crowd. The reason why the majority of people take the broad path is because it’s easy.

                                          It’s easy to just follow the crowd. It’s more of a challenge when you stay true to yourself and establish your own identity. This challenge of always being yourself takes courage and inner strength. No matter what comes your way, you’ll know how to handle it.

                                          4. Establish Boundaries

                                          When you are always yourself, you know what your limits are and the boundaries that you have set for yourself. When people cross your boundaries, you will know.

                                          But if you don’t establish boundaries, people may very well walk all over you and take advantage of you. If you are always yourself and you establish boundaries, you are more likely to be aware when people start taking advantage of you.

                                          Create and establish your boundaries.

                                          5. Find Focus and Direction

                                          When you are always yourself, you are more likely to have focus and direction in your life. Imagine someone who is constantly conforming to other people’s expectations, do you think this person has focus and direction? I don’t think so.

                                          Advertising

                                          When you stay true to who you are, you are more likely to know the goals you want to accomplish and how to go about accomplishing them. You are able to stay focused and know which direction to take in order for you to accomplish your goals.

                                          No matter what you experience in life, the only person that will always remain constant is you.
