Looks like you need some help!
Dressing up is never an easy business. Though we've got many options in our man-drobe, knowing how to wear them could be just as hard as understanding women. And sometimes no matter how hard we try, we end up committing fashion fails.
But as always, we're here to rescue you, bro! Below are the solutions to the most common male fashion mistakes, as illustrated in a video by BuzzFeed, transformed into awesome GIFs every wannabe stylish man should see!
1) STOP MURDERING YOUR SLEEVES
Try the master sleeve roll! It's quick, sharp, and a total chick magnet.
2) STOP WEARING JEANS THAT ARE TOO LARGE OR TOO TIGHT
We know jogger pants and skinny jeans are in. But that doesn't mean you have to get a size that would make your bottom either look like an elephant's trunk or a suman from Antipolo. When you buy jeans, slip two fingers between the hip and the waistband. If they fit comfortably, that's the right size for you!
3) STOP WEARING BAGGY SHORTS
Baggy shorts make you look shorter than you really are. At the same time, no one wants to see your entire thighs, dude, so cut it out with the yagballs shorts. How will you know if your shorts are of the right length? Make sure that they are two to three inches above your knees.
4) STOP WEARING WHITE SOCKS WITH EVERY DAMNED THING IN YOUR CLOSET
Just because they are hidden, doesn't mean nobody notices them. You have to pay attention even to the smallest detail. Quirky socks are in, so now is the right time to show off your feet's personality.
5) STOP LIMITING YOURSELF TO ONE PAIR OF SHOES
No matter how nice and expensive your favorite kicks are, it will never compliment ALL of your garbs. Make sure you own at least one of these: casual shoes, sneakers, black dress shoes, brown dress shoes, and boots.
6) STOP OVERPLAYING THE TERNO GAME
Think your shoes and belt should always match? Think pink shoes with a pink shirt and a pink watch make you seem rad? You are wrong. There's nothing wrong with matching your clothes, mind, but too much of something is never good. The basic tip: Match a few parts, be playful with the others.
7) STOP TUCKING IN THE WRONG KIND OF SHIRTS
Basically, tuck in your formal shirt only when it has a longer and straighter hem. Untuck them when the hemline curves up at the hip.
8) STOP WEARING BLAZERS THAT ARE TOO LARGE OR TOO SMALL
Proper fit matters with suits and blazers. When it's too big, the fabric rumples. When it’s too small, your range of motion will be restricted. It's the right fit when the shoulder seam (that's the pointy thing at the shoulder) ends squarely at your shoulder.
9) STOP FLAUNTING YOUR PECS WITH DEEP V-NECKS
Do we still need to mention that it's not a great experience to accidentally get a glimpse of a fellow dude's man-boobs? Wear shirts with collars no lower than two to three inches below your collarbone. No exceptions, lest you like wearing "girly" clothes.
10) STOP LIMITING YOURSELF
We like to keep it simple. A shirt and a pair of jeans are usually fine. But sometimes that limits us from trying out new ways to wear clothes or clothes with a trendy fit or pattern. Know what you look good in but at the same time, don't be afraid to strech your style boundary. As the bro-liest of us says, "Experiment, bro!"
Finding it hard not to scoff at the things on this list? Well, we've got five words for you: "Do it for the girls!"
