We get it, not every man is going to be blessed with great personal style or care about how he looks half the time. But it doesn’t matter if you’re attending a formal dinner or simply running to the store to grab a carton of eggs, you must always ensure that you’re paying attention to what you’re wearing because you never know who you might run into.
So to ensure that you never enter an awkward or embarrassing fashion faux pas, these are the top things to avoid doing this spring.
Wearing Socks and Sandals
“Hello, 1989? My dad called, he wants his dorky socks and sandals back…”
Seriously, do you really want to be this guy? We know that celebrities and hipsters have tried to make this a thing, but we’re thanking our lucky stars that it hasn’t (yet anyways). Not only does it look ridiculous, it just makes no sense. If you’re wearing socks, throw on a pair of sneakers. Or, if you’re going somewhere in which it’s acceptable to wear sandals, do the world a favour and leave your socks at home.
Wearing Clothes That Don’t Fit
Baggy jeans and oversized clothing are a thing of the past, which is why they were intended to be left in the ‘90s. Rocking t-shirts that are tight to accentuate your muscles are also wrong. In either situation, you’re sacrificing comfort for what you think looks good. Wearing clothes that don’t properly fit screams you don’t actually care about how you look, which is the last thing you want. By putting in a little effort with what you wear, you’ll always be comfortable and if you look good, you feel good.
Not Following Dress Codes
Dress codes are not a suggestion, they are a requirement that everyone is expected to follow. From formal black tie events to your brother’s themed birthday party, you should always know exactly how you’re expected to be dressed when you leave your home. A great example is if you work in an office that calls for smart casual with a tie. Just because casual is in the description doesn’t give you the liberty to arrive tie-less. You must always have a tie on at all times. If you’re ever unsure of how you should dress for a specific occasion, ask a colleague or a friend before you make any poor fashion assumptions.
