What Are The Biggest Men’s Fashion Don’ts?

1. Socks with Sandals Slide


Never wear socks with sandals. Don’t do it, under any circumstances. This is one of the most glaringly bad fashion choices in the book. No one will ever take you seriously if you dress this way, especially if you show it off by wearing shorts!

If it’s too cold for sandals, do not wear sandals. If you’re older than 13, this should be common sense by now.

2. Jorts

You may wonder why jean shorts are forbidden, and you aren’t alone. Most people aren’t aware of why this specific style is such a major fashion don’t for men. All we know is that men look dorky in denim shorts. Period!

Don’t worry about the reasoning! Just buy a different style of shorts and enter the ranks of the fashionable.

3. The Basics of Buttons

If you’re wearing a jacket, blazer, or coat with more than one button, don’t fasten the bottom button. If you’re wearing a dress shirt or polo shirt, and you aren’t wearing a tie, leave one or two buttons open at the top.

If you aren’t wearing a tie and you have your shirt buttoned all the way to the top, you’ll come across as a nerd. But two is the limit; if you leave any more than that unbuttoned, you’re entering David Hasselhoff territory. Gross!

4. Tank Tops

Tank tops are rarely, if ever, appropriate attire, and there is a reason why the men’s ribbed white tank has such a bad reputation. Put on a t-shirt instead, and you’ll receive a lot fewer glares from women on the street!

5. Square-Toed Shoes

If you really want people to think you’re a total square, feel free to wear shoes with square toes. Otherwise, you should always opt for the rounder edges. You can’t say we didn’t warn you!

6. Speedos

Unless you’re a bodybuilder, dancing on a float in a pride parade, or a member of a competitive swim team, there is no reason for you to ever sport a speedo. Go to the store and buy a legitimate piece of swimwear, fellas. By doing so, you’ll make the world a better place!

7. Baggy Pants

Unless you are a teenager, it’s time to stop walking around in droopy drawers. No one wants to see your underwear out in public, and women think you look terrible. Is that really the reaction you want?

This is especially awful if your pants are drooping and they have a belt attached. Don’t fasten the belt around your backside! Wear it at your waist, where it belongs.

8. Crocs

Crocs are a major no-no for men and women alike. Are you gardening? No. So stop it.

9. Hawaiian Shirts

Do you live in Hawaii? Are you on a vacation in a tropical land? Are you part of a Beach Boys cover band? Are you at a Jimmy Buffett concert?

No? Then take off the Hawaiian shirt immediately. You look ridiculous.

10. Bad Hair Choices

If you want to be a fashionable gent, avoid the following hairstyles altogether:

  • Mullet
  • Dreadlocks
  • Rattail
  • Bowl cut
  • Comb over
  • Mohawk
