10 Style Mistakes I Wish I Learned Long Ago
Learn from our mistakes: Dress your best by ridding your style of these 10 common errors.
Being virile young men, we are somewhat expected to be reckless in our nature. Perhaps we don’t think everything through before we do it. Or maybe we do things in excess. But if there’s something a well-dressed young man who at least looks put together can do, it’s get away with most anything he desires.
There are, however, universal rules. While we individually may not be guilty of these infractions, we collectively as young men have experienced them. This goes beyond wearing socks with sandals, gentlemen.
1. Size MattersThe golden rule. There’s too big, too small, and just right. If a man was to wear clothes too big for him, it looks sloppy. And because I assume none of us are looking to be in a Cash Money Records music video, it just doesn’t make sense. The same can be said of wearing clothes too small. I hope all of us are finished with scream-o band T-shirts and lip rings, because no woman can take us seriously if we’re pulling at everything we have on just so we have enough room to breathe. Plus, it’s hard to have a conversation when you’re trying not to stare at how tight someone’s pants are.
