While fashion hasn’t always been a big concern for many men, it is now becoming more popular than ever. Millions of men now put a ton of time into how they look and what they wear. But while many men are looking to improve their style choices, there are still plenty of others completely in the dark about the bad fashion choices they are currently making. These seemingly tiny mistakes can have a huge impact on how you look.
If you are still creating your own style and need some assistance in this department, an online resource like The Trending Man can be a great tool. We’ve also put together some of the top fashion mistakes men make that you will definitely want to avoid.
Wearing the Wrong Size
The biggest fashion mistake being made by men all over the world is wearing the wrong size. You want to find clothing that fits you well and that accentuates the parts of your body that you are happiest with. Unfortunately, most men either make the mistake of going too large or too tight with their pants, shirts or shorts.
Clothing that is too tight can be very unflattering and show off your body in a way you may not be comfortable with. But if it is too loose, it can look very unkempt, as well. Regularly measure yourself and use those measurements to help you find the right size for your body. No matter the brand or quality of clothing, simply finding your right size can drastically improve your style.
Adding Too Many Accessories
Another issue many men have comes down to accessories. While accessories like bracelets, watches, ties, sunglasses and hats can add to an outfit, too many of them can look overdone. You generally want to keep a “less is more” approach to your accessories.
Add only one or two pieces at a time and make sure they fit with the rest of your clothes. Also, consider the event or destination you are going to. You wouldn’t wear a tie or a nice watch to the gym, just like you wouldn’t wear a baseball hat to a formal dinner.
Too many accessories can be very distracting and the point of accessories is to complement an outfit, not completely overshadow it.
Getting Crazy With Color
Color plays a very important role in your clothing choices. It can help show off your personality, and help you stand out in a crowd. Of course, wearing color is far from a bad thing, but overdoing it can look a little too busy and take away from the parts of your outfit you want to highlight. Colors can often clash together, and make an otherwise nice outfit look downright silly.
When it comes to using color with other colors, it could be a good idea to consult a color wheel. This can help you visualize which colors can work together without clashing, and which should certainly be avoided.
If you want to play it safe, try to only have one or two colored or bright parts of your outfit, as opposed to many. It is also important to know that some colors may look better on you than others, so definitely keep that in mind when shopping.
Avoid These Mistakes To Improve Your Style
We all want to look our best, whether we are going on a first date, to a concert or even a job interview. Unfortunately, many men are hurting their look by wearing the wrong size, getting too crazy with color and adding too many accessories.
