The Worst Fashion Mistakes Men Make

Often what flatters one man may not add as much appeal to another. Here are 5 common fashion faux pas men make that could bring down their sex appeal in front of the ladies.

Wrong Shoes

Wrong Shoes

Wearing inappropriate footwear is a complete let-down to any ensemble. Open sandals with socks with a business suit? Or funky sneakers with a tux? Studies show that women are turned on by men wearing great shoes, so make sure you’ve got your foot basics straight. Espadrilles or sneakers for casual wear and polished shoes with formals and corporate wear will usually work for anyone.

Billboard/Slogan Tees

Billboard/Slogan Tees

It’s great to have an opinion but flashing slogans on tees is so passé. A billboard saying, jokes and over-the-top humour sure makes head turn and gets you attention but it’s not fashion forward. This trend is more suited to college kids and looks chic on men of all ages only if it’s toned down. So pick tees that are witty and fine-tuned to more elegant sensibilities and it could just become a conversation starter with your date.

Shirts & Pants in Shiny Textiles

Shiny Textiles

Shiny fabrics often look too gaudy and cheap and can bring down your style quotient. They sure catch the light, but are not flattering on the body or on the skin. Avoid iridescent metallic in your wardrobe unless they sparingly appear as small logos or a tiny pattern. Avoid shiny pants at all costs unless of course if you want to be on the worst dressed list of potential mates.

Over-Accessorising

Bling is in but if worn too much takes away from everything that you are and are wearing. Leave chunky bracelets, gold & silver accessories and neckpieces for the musicians, hippies and rockstars unless of course you can carry it with great élan with your beachwear. Select individual charms or talismans that reflect your persona. Go easy on other accessories too – bandanas, hats, eyewear & more; a good watch along with a pair of chic sunglasses and maybe a fine leather bracelet will help you leave a better impression on your lady on that special brunch date.

Fanny Packs

Fanny Packs

Still carrying the fanny pack or the 90’s zipper pouch while on vacation or a weekend getaway? Well, forget about dating for a while. Fanny packs can look very dowdy and immature on men. Pick a compact messenger bag or a backpack for your travels instead. These up your style quotient and are also the more sensible option if you need to keep many things together while traveling.
