Page 1 2
Although there are an increasing number of fashionable-forward guys in today's modern style-conscious world there are still plenty of style atrocities committed by millions of men daily. There are many common issues with the male style sense, covering everything from our socks and sandals to our gender's general disregard for properly fitted clothing. The good news is that you are reading this and from now on, you will no longer unknowingly commit these style crimes. It is easy to be commanding and stylish and there are many small details that can add that extra polish to give you, the modern day man, a fashionable, yet masculine edge. Here are 10 easy tips to navigate you away from potential blunders.
1. Forget about logos
Many men are under the assumption that they have good taste in fashion if they are covered in designer logos from head to toe. This is a very common misconception people hold but the reality is that having style is truly more about color coordination and thinking outside the box when it comes to personal expression than it is about brand names. Dressing brand logos from head to toe is not stylish.
2. Clothing should fit right
Men around the world tackle the world each day dressed in a suit; unfortunately, most of these guys are strutting around in a suit that is too big for them. Suits are great but wearing a suit that is too big for you gives you an unflattering image. But this isn't just true of professional attire; in fact, wearing any article of clothing that doesn't fit properly will give you a messy and unpolished appearance and is thus a style sin. Improper fit can also influence the perception of your health making you look bloated or sickly.
3. Choose appropriate "kicks"
Knowing which shoes are appropriate for what occasion is a rule many men disobey. One of the biggest fashion taboos, which is surprisingly sometimes broken, is wearing athletic sneakers with professional garments. This is completely inappropriate. There are more casual shoe style options that provide a casual feel, such as "fashion sneakers." These shoes encompass the best aesthetics of a formal fashion shoe and comfortable sneaker. They are available in a wide variety of styles ranging from conservative to bold, casual to formal.
4. Keep your shoes clean
One of the first impressions women are said to notice about men is the state of their shoes so it is crucial to ensure that your shoes are well maintained and always clean. Dress shoes should always be polished and buffed every 3-5 uses and cleaned using the appropriate cleaner. Ensuring that your shoes are clean will not only give them a longer wear life but it will also give you a polished and crisp image.
5. Note your tie length
Another common mistake many men make is to wear their ties too long or too short. Doing this gives your body a very disproportionate appearance and although you may not notice it close up, it is very noticeable at a distance. The correct length for a tie is to sit just above the belt. Many use the triangular tip as a guide as it should be touching or sit just on top of the belt buckle. This gives your torso and legs the correct proportional image and gives you an overall lean appearance.
