5 Fashion Mistakes Men Make
If you surf the internet or pick up a fashion magazine, you are more likely to come across tons of fashion advice for women than you would for men.
Considering how men have been left out, it is understandable that many make avoidable fashion mistakes. Today, we are addressing some male fashion faux pas!
Ever come across men that look like a walking advert for a design company? One logo or monogrammed piece per outfit will help you express your love for the brand in question, anything more than that is considered tacky.
Mandals and Socks
It looks extremely silly when you paid your mandals (man sandals) with socks. As much as you might think you are making a fashion statement, you only end up looking like an average Joe. If you don’t want your feet exposed, choose sneakers or loafers instead. If mandals are a must for you, then you have to let go of the socks!
One fashion faux pas you should not be caught committing is wearing wrinkled clothing. Find the time to iron your shirt because while worn wrinkles are cool, the unironed look, on the other hand, isn’t and can make even the best of outfits and the most handsome of wearers look sloppy.

Accessories could either make or mar your outfit hence why you need to pay attention to the tiny details. Coordinating your accessories with your outfit is very important. For instance, if you choose to wear brown shoes, make sure your watch strap and belt are similarly brown (100% match is advised but not a must) and that the color of your suit does look good with brown accessories. Feel free to experiment with colours, of course!
Women are also guilty of this so it is safe to say the menfolk are not alone when it comes to this faux pas. Trying to score a matching outfit by pairing two colours that share nothing but the same name is all shades of wrong. Some colours are best worn individually and do not complement each other.
