Based on my experience, one of the greatest confusion is how to match mens clothing to create different fashion styles. This is especially true when it involves various colors and patterns.

Men's Fashion Mistakes To Avoid

  • Don't wear socks with sandals.
  • Stay away from novelty ties. There is nothing lasting about novelty clothing nor does it project a style image. Leave the smiley faces, hearts, reindeer, shamrocks, animal and various other prints on the racks of the store where you found them.
  • Just because you are wearing a designer's name on your chest, sleeve, or wherever, doesn't make you stylish. 
  • Unless you are a student or are hiking up a mountain, leave the backpack at home. Do not carry backpacks to the office.
  • Retire the old chunky shoes. These were okay back in the 90s, but the big chunky shoes, especially those with square toes, should be retired at this point. 
  • If you are looking for something to go out nightclubbing in try a form fitting black t-shirt or black dress shirt which can be worn with jeans or trousers and dress shoes or casual shoes. Stay away from the glittery, shiny and ultimately tacky shirts.

Mens Fashion Tips

It is important that you learn how to choose the best color for your skin complexion and hair in order to achieve great color coordination with your suits, shirts, ties, pants and shoes to look your best. This is the art of mix and matching patterns with style. To look great in mens fashion, it pays to have basic understanding about fabrics, clothing details, and accessories. For example, that beautiful blue cashmere sweater you found on sale after Christmas might be really tempting, but if it makes you look ill it's no bargain. The colors you wear should compliment your natural features such as your eye color, skin tone and body shape. Keep this in mind when putting your look together. 

Choose clothes that fit your body. This might take some experimentation by mixing and matching certain cuts and styles until you find the right fit for your body that is flattering.

Men's Fashion Q&A

What is the case for a 4 button suit? Is the 4 button suit in style any longer?
Four button suits are not seen much these days and certainly aren't a suit one would buy their first or second suit. It is more of a fashion suit, not a classic style. Also keep in mind that four button suits really look best on those that are tall and slim.

Does a man have to be a certain age to wear a double breasted suit?
No. But unless it is really your style, stay away from the double breasted suit. Again, not an appropriate first or second suit.

Are suit vests a thing of the past?
Suit vests are for dandies, but also seen in English, western, and evening looks. Not really seeing suit vests otherwise.

Are suits with no vents in the back a dated look?
Vents are definitely more European and shapelier. They are also a symbol of better tailoring.

Are pleats on trousers a bad idea?
First thing is that flat fronted trousers are always more flattering no matter what your size and age. Pleats bring attention to that area of the body.

A general note regarding suits:
Invest in a good suit this is where your wardrobe dollars are best spent. Choose neutral colors like navy or gray. Browns and olives can be tricky and black suits had their moment, but are still great for evening or formal occasions. Also, suits should be comfortable, drape well, and move with you. And always keep in mind that richness in fabrics and good tailoring never go out of style.

It's the little things that count most. Small, flashy cufflinks, a hat or even a lapel pin can spruce up your outfit. But don't forget- your favorite cologne (and deodorant) can make a big difference in not only how you look, but feel as well. Finally, remember to get your hair trimmed no more than a week before the big event.
