Sheena Agarwaal from Urbanista Image Consulting picks out a few faux pas that are being made all too often.
Sometimes men don’t pay much attention to their personal styling or the way they dress up. When it comes to fashion, most men simply try to avoid looking ridiculous. Sheena Agarwaal from Urbanista Image Consulting picks out a few faux pas that are being made all too often:
White socks with dress shoes
Teaming white socks with dress shoes may have enjoyed brief popularity in the mid-'90s, but there's a good reason this combo has failed to make a strong comeback. Dress shoes should only be worn with dress socks, which are wool or cotton socks in dark hues.
Buttoning blazers incorrectly
Fastening the wrong number of buttons on your blazer can cause it to pull and stretch in awkward directions. Double-breasted jackets should nearly always be buttoned. With a two-button suit, fasten the top button and with a three-button suit, you have a choice between fastening the top two buttons or the middle one only. No matter what kind of blazer you're wearing, always unbutton it when you sit down.
Your pants pockets are a place to put your hands, some spare change and perhaps a slim wallet. Bulging pockets detract from an otherwise streamlined look, so if you notice any square lumps in your pants, it's a sure sign that it's time to get a bag. Mismatched suit and shoes.
Men too frequently select shoes in shades that don't complement their dress clothes, like brown-hued footwear with black trousers. Pair black suits with black shoes; gray suits with black or camel shoes; brown suits with brown or camel shoes; and navy suits with black, camel, tan or oxblood-colored footwear.
Wearing running shoes outside the gym
Activewear should not be day wear. For a just-as-comfortable alternative without the ‘ick’ factor, pick a pair of sneakers or slip-on loafers for your casual ensembles.
