Mens Fashion Style Commandments
I stumbled upon this article about male styling hints and tips from Guy Style Guide. It may be a little out of date (article was writtin in December 2009) but I think these commandments can still be helpful to all the men now. Let me share with you some of the tips from the article (there are 15 in total) just for your information.
1. Socks and sandals combo
It does not match at all no matter how you think it looks okay or it looks cool. It doesnt. Stay away from this!
2. Sunglasses Indoors
3. Denim on denim
Britney and Justin did it years ago, see how disgusting it looks? Try to minimize your wear of denim. If you are wearing a denim cap, pair it with a shirt and khaki shorts. Do not over do denim because it will make you look like this Justin and Britney photo.
4. Over “bling-ed”
Are you a rapper? No? then do not wear a lot of bling. Rule of thumb, wear a maximum of 3 pieces of bling at once. Typically it is a watch, wedding ring, and cufflinks or a tie clip.
5. Stay away from clip on ties
You are an adult, by now, you should know be able to know how to tie your own tie. There are lots of how to videos so please, take time to learn how and stay away from clip on ties.
6. Buy suits in pairs
Always always buy a suit in pairs. Trousers and suit jackets need to match especially if you will be wearing it to a business meeting or a formal black tie event. If you buy separately, no matter how close the color is to each other, it will still be very noticeable that it is different.
