Enough has been said about ‘what to wear’ and ‘what not to wear’ for women. Here is some advice for the men! The following are some of the fashion disasters guys should  avoid if they don’t want to be noticed for the wrong reasons.

*Too many designer labels 

You can appear over the top if you have too many different designer labels on your clothing. Rather go for one good designer item and good shoes and you won’t go wrong.

* Eccentric style  Some people are weird and dress to prove it! But if you don’t want to be regarded as a bit of a freak then don’t dress as one. Colour co-ordinate your clothing and people will admire your dress sense. By all means be different, but don’t be eccentric.

* Stains on your tie

Ok, you have a favourite tie, but that does not mean you never need to run it through the washing machine now and then. Ties with gravy satins on are just gross and will put the opposite sex off you.

* Too much bling

A little gold jewellery and diamonds look good, but if it’s overdone you can look funny. So don’t go overboard with the bling, gold chains, jangling gold bracelets and sovereign Rings.

* Shiny suit pants and jacket

Suit jackets and trousers that have been worn just too many times start to get a shiny patch on the seat and backs of the legs. In case of suit jackets the back will start to shine if worn too much. Have the suit cleaned or buy a new one!

* Wearing wrinkled clothes

Crumpled and stale clothes are not very nice to look at or smell. Make sure your clothes are fresh and clean and that shirts are ironed.

* Black sneakers worn as dress shoes

These days every one wears trainers or sneakers with their jeans. However, you cannot wear your black sneakers with smart evening wear and look good, because it cheapens your appearance. Get some decent dress shoes and keep them clean and polished.

* Too much after shave

Too much aftershave maybe a regarded as a sign of insecurity. Just put enough on for it to be noticeable from a couple of feet away and you’ll be admired by all women.

* Sweat pants

Track suits are ideal for the gym, but not for general wear when you want to look smart and stylish. So restrict wearing those track pants for the gym.
