Men's Fashion Mistake!
Socks With Sandals
Who decided this was okay in the first place? If you want to wear sandals this badly, wear it, but forget about socks. Coz it's simply sucks!
Novelty Ties, Shirts, Boxers Shorts...ETC...
There is nothing lasting about novelty clothing nor does it project a stylish, put together image. Leave the smiley faces, hearts, reindeer, shamrocks, animal and various other prints on the racks of the store where you found them.
Blaring Designer Labels
Don't be a walking advertisement. It's not a sophisticated look. Just because you are wearing a designer's name on your chest, sleeve, or wherever, doesn't make you stylish. Keep it understated and simple.
Backpacks at the Office
OK, maybe this is just a misdemeanor, but you're trying to climb the corporate ladder, not hike up a mountain. A nice messenger bag will do just fine. Forget about the good old school days.
These were okay back in the 90s, but the big chunky shoes, especially those with square toes, should be retired at this point. Choose something classic that stands the test of time.
Shiny or Glittery Shirts and Suits
Are you into nightclubbing? Bet, there are better choices than those that are "shining, shimmering, splendid!" If no, try a form fitting black t-shirt or black dress shirt which can be worn with jeans or trousers and dress shoes or casual shoes.
Clothes that are Too Loose Fitting
Yeah boy! Did you say Hip-hop? They aren't right to look at in a corporate world come on! Choose clothes that fit your body. This might take some experimentation by mixing and matching certain cuts and styles until you find the right fit for your body that is flattering.
Do you know the word LOUD? The colors you wear should compliment your natural features such as your eye color, skin tone and body shape. Stick to complementary colors (those opposite from each other on the color wheel) or colors from the same pallet. Match pale clothes with light-colored shoes and dark clothes with dark shoes.
