The year although coming to an end has seen a lot of men one time or the other committing some basic fashion blunders which we feel by now shouldn’t even be heard of. You go around town and just see these mistakes staring right in-front of you and you are thinking to yourself did they just leave their homes looking like that or it just lack of knowledge so we want to take the latter and hope that this piece would help you make the right decisions. We all understand that style is all about self expression and there’s no disputing that fact but when it comes to the basic rules you have no option than to follow those rules, one of such rules is not wearing two different colors for your belt and shoes, so you can see that most men wear brown belt and black shoe and vice-versa now that’s so wrong on all level, how can you drink water through your nose its just impossible so why then would you commit such sacrilege. There’s a thin line between color-blocking and just having color rioting and that my friend is what you have been committing all this and if you have been guilty all this while then please you read here that its a huge NO NO for you to actually wear different color of belt and shoe, the rule is to make sure that if you are wearing a brown belt then make sure your shoes are brown and if it is black then please do the needful by making that brogue shoe black as well.
Now in 2021 we are going to be seeing a lot of styles from the oldies making a huge comeback and even some of the styles that made a debut this year would be wrapping up to remerge another time because they have served their purpose but in the meantime we had like to highlight some of the mistakes which we think shouldn’t be made never again and as we get into a new year you need to get these fashion mistakes on your finger tips.
1. Your blazer is too long or too short.
A suit is definitely a staple piece in men’s fashion and it often includes a blazer. This piece of clothing can make or break your entire look, so make sure you choose it wisely. This also goes for the coats men tend to wear with their suits it’s important that the length of the coat covers your blazer.
2. Almost all your T-shirts are branded.
Yes, wearing branded T-shirts can be very appealing, but it’s easy to go over the top with them. Some men think branding is the only way to show the quality of their clothing items, but that’s not always the case. You might want to wear T-shirts that make you comfortable, whether they’re branded or not we’re sure nobody will notice! It’s much more attractive to see a man in a monochrome T-shirt, but if you insist on wearing just branded items, try to look for some with smaller logos or brands. Sometimes less really is more.
It’s not a crime to wear an undershirt as long as it’s not showing. We all know it’s important to protect your dress shirt from sweat and stains, but the undershirt is considered underwear so according to etiquette rules, it should absolutely not be visible. In addition to that, it adds unnecessary horizontal lines that ruin your body proportions. But if you really wish to unbutton your dress shirt, maybe opt for a V-neck shirt underneath instead.
5. You accessorize way too much.
We all tend to overdo it with the accessories from time to time, but as Coco Chanel once said, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” This is great advice, especially because women like men that look well-groomed. The best way to achieve that is with minimal accessories that match your outfit.
6. You wear sandals with socks.
Most of us assumed this trend would’ve died out by now, but apparently men still do this! Wearing sandals is considered to belong to the beach or summertime. It’s very unappealing to see men wearing them around all the time, especially if you’re doing it with socks. Sandals should be worn on bare feet so you feel comfortable. If you don’t like showing your feet, think about investing in closed-toe shoes.
We hope you are taking notes of this fashion blunders and saying to yourself that this mistakes are unpardonable and that you are not going to be found wanting when it comes to style offenders in 2021.
