6 Cringe-worthy Fashion Mistakes Men Make

  | 3 min read

As far as fashion experimenting goes, we have all made mistakes along the way. Some mistakes can be forgiven, some are just too grave to go unmentioned.We see men break a lot of fashion rules, and not in a good way, so below we highlight five of the common ones.

Oversized Clothes

Fashion Mistakes

This is fashion mistake number one. Have you ever seen someone with an oversized suit or shirt and it makes you wonder what they were trying to achieve? Baggy clothes make you seem smaller than you actually. Moreover, the excess loses hanging fabric creates an unsightly mess that tarnishes your style. Steer clear of oversized clothes and stick to fitting clothes.Fitting clothes will make you look more presentable whether it is a casual or formal look.

Uneven Ties/ Poorly Tied Ties

Fashion Mistake

It’s one thing to get the whole outfit right and forget to just get the minor details. When wearing a tie try to make it look as neat as possible. The devil is always in the detail. If you really want to dress and impress in formal wear, why not get everything right including the tie?

Sagging Pants

Fashion Mistake

This is forgivable if you are an Atlanta rapper or you are stuck in the early 00s.  If you are not in either scenario, don’t do this. Sagging pants take out the seriousness and make you look tacky. Try upgrading your look by lifting those pants up. You can even use a belt to complement the rest of your look.  

Leaving The Suit Brand Label On

Fashion Mistake

Most suit designs have brand labels and most people think leaving the brand labels is cool. This is a fashion no-no. The label is meant to be removed leaving the label makes the classic look tasteless. You can’t be rocking a suit and trying so hard to be cheap.

Super V-Necks

Fashion Mistakes

Overly unbuttoned shirts or super v-necks make you look like a Narcos drug lord.This is probably not the vibe you want to be sending.  It can get worse if you are wearing silk. Button up and rock that shirt like a true gentleman.

Cartoon Clothing

Fashion Mistakes

Disney characters are adorable, but unless you work for Disney, wearing them on your tie or shirts to work makes you look immature. Oh, and while we’re on the subject, stay away from those cheesy belt buckles as well. Instead, stick to the classic wardrobe pieces that will keep you looking your best for years to come.
