Nobody was born a classic man or fashionista, it is a process, for some, a gradual learning period while for others it just comes naturally.
You do not have to be 6ft tall to have a presence, The simple trick is always to dress the part no matter how uncomfortable it might be. Like I said, it’s a training process and keep in mind that men get to be addressed the way they are dressed.
On every man’s road to dressing better, he learns quite a few things about style.
Keep reading to make sure you don’t make the same mistakes…
Wearing Straight Ties With Short-Sleeved Shirts
That’s a major fashion blunder. You’re no longer in high school. Preferably, if you must wear a tie, try bow ties instead. They look way better.
Wearing Short Socks Underneath Your Trousers
They call them “ankle length” seriously?!!! It’s a total No! No wearing short socks. The right thing to do is to wear socks that go way up to your calves, so when you sit, your skin remains invisible.
Wearing Warped Shoes
I know they might be your favorite and you’re not sure of finding them on any shoe shelf, please leave them at home. Some things don’t last forever.
Buttons On Suits
It’s considered a fashion blunder to button up your suit jacket. If it’s a suit with 3 buttons, button 2 and fly one. And if it’s a 2 button suit, button up one and fly the other.
Wearing Over-Sized/Baggy Shirts
Shirts aren’t supposed to be baggy. They’re supposed to fit! A good rule of thumb is to get a shirt that fits as close to your body as you can while you retain free range of movement in your arms.
On Matching Your Belts With Your Shoes
Matching your belt and shoes is a good rule of thumb for the dressiest of occasions, but that’s really the only time. It’s not necessary for business suits or any level of dress lower than that.
Showing off money in a men’s high-end store means you’re fashionable.
Lol. Wrongest idea ever! I know someone who visits the local stores around some call ‘bend down boutique’ and comes out looking like a million naira.
Wearing Shiny Suits
Ok seriously who still does that?? Well, some people do and it just beats my imagination. Shiny suits are costumes for the stage or theater not for outdoor events or even church service. Just repent! lol
We are social….. so lets hear what you think
