10 style mistakes to avoid as a man

Here are ten common style mistakes that men often make, along with easy solutions to fix them and enhance their overall appearance:

Shirt Sleeves

Start by unbuttoning the cuffs and any buttons on the gauntlet (the part of the sleeve that extends from the cuff to the elbow). Fold the cuff back, flipping it inside out to create a clean edge at the desired length. Depending on the width of the cuff and your preference, you may need to fold the cuff one or two more times to reach just below the elbow. Smooth out any wrinkles or unevenness in the fabric to create a neat appearance. If the sleeves are still too long or too loose, adjust the folds until you achieve the desired length and tightness around the arm.

Dress Shirt Muffin Top

When a dress shirt is not tucked in correctly, it can create a “muffin top” effect. To avoid this, you can use the military tuck method. This technique involves pulling the excess fabric on both sides of the shirt and neatly tucking it in, ensuring a smooth appearance. Pairing this with a nice belt can further enhance the overall look.

Indoor Sunglasses and Caps

It’s generally considered improper etiquette to wear sunglasses and caps indoors. These accessories are designed for outdoor use and are best worn outside. When indoors, it’s polite to remove them to show respect for the indoor environment and those around you.


An empty wrist is a missed opportunity for style. A watch can elevate even a basic T-shirt, adding a touch of sophistication and enhancing your overall look.

Leather Shoes for All Occasions

Leather shoes are versatile and can complement both jeans and shorts. This debunks the stereotype that they are only suitable for formal settings.

Overreliance on Sneakers

While sneakers are fantastic, wearing them exclusively can limit your wardrobe options. Consider incorporating a variety of footwear styles, such as leather loafers, chukka boots, or Chelsea boots, to expand your style choices.

No-Show Socks

Wearing no-show socks is essential when going barefoot in the sun to prevent blisters, discomfort, and bad odors from sweaty feet.

Knowing When to Tuck

Knowing when to tuck in your dress shirt depends on its length. Longer shirts should be tucked in, while shorter shirts can be left untucked for a more casual look.

Flappy Collars

When wearing elegant dress suits, it can be frustrating to have flimsy collars that don’t stay upright. To achieve a refined and tidy appearance, consider using magnetic collar stays.

Dressing for the Occasion

It’s crucial to wear clothes that are appropriate for the situation. Always pay attention to the dress code and try not to be the person who shows up to formal occasions wearing casual clothes or vice versa. Wearing the right attire shows respect for the event and the people attending.
