Fashion Mistakes Women Despise About Men

short-ties

It’s clear that women care more about how they dress than men do. A man’s lack of interest in his appearance can totally turn off a woman. Look, guys, there are some mistakes that we can let slide, but some are downright deal breakers. Here are some things you didn’t notice you were doing wrong, and maybe some you did but just didn’t notice the severity.

Socks That Don't Match Your Outfit

Socks That Don't Match Your Outfit
Socks are more important than any man realizes. We'll visit this topic several times. You're on the way to your office, dressed in your finest suit, but under those pants you're hiding a pair of white calf-length Champions. (By the way, don't wear Champions, unless you're prepubescent). Your orange argyle socks go perfectly with that lavender fitted shirt….right? Come on, guys, pull it all together.

Mismatched Socks

Mismatched Socks
One black with a green stripe, one black with a blue stripe. Sometimes, one white, one black. Seriously? You'd be surprised how often your socks show during the day. What about when you sit or cross your legs, those pants ride up and BAM: your one Nike and one Adidas are shown to the world…and people notice. All this shows is your laziness.

Your Idea of "Dressed Up"

Your Idea of "Dressed Up"
I'm sorry, but putting on your golf shirt and your khakis is not dressing up. Neither is always resorting to Ralph and his reliable polos. Throw on a tie under a slight V-neck and match with tailored slacks. Your girl doesn't "dress up" in American Eagle jeans and a cable knit sweater, does she (by the way if she does, say goodbye)?

There's no description needed here. The classic sin most men make; Jesus would be disappointed.

Short Ties

Short Ties
I cannot emphasize the hideousness of a short tie. If that bad boy doesn't reach your belt, get ready to be made fun of at a party. You are making yourself look heavier. Either tie it correctly or don't shop in the boys section.

Un-tailored Suits

Un-tailored Suits
I understand it is very expensive to have a tailored suit. However, I do believe every man should try and have one. But seeing a man in a suit that is clearly not his size tells me one of two things: 1. you borrowed this because you're cheap; or 2. you're an idiot.

Not Refreshing Your Wardrobe

Not Refreshing Your Wardrobe
This is one of the biggest mistakes men make; you wear the same clothes year after year. While this is great because you're not spending a lot of money, it becomes embarrassing. If your friends know every shirt you have, or can predict what you're going to wear, you've got problems. Purchase five or less items a month; it'll save money but expand your wardrobe quicker than you think. Not caring about your clothes shows females you probably don't care about much.

Typecasting Yourself

Typecasting Yourself
Basically, don't wear the same style all the time. I hate to bring up Ralph again, but don't only wear polos or only one color, or be that guy who only wears argyle. Because it's boring. It's so boring. And that's how women will take it.

Holes and Rips

Holes and Rips
It's not okay to wear a tee shirt with a hole in it, or a sock, or those pants that are too long and are frayed on the bottom. Because we will stare at it. And become obsessed with it.

"Oh wow, did you just go fishing?" "No." "Oh, so you're just a complete tool?"

Flat Billed Hat With a Sticker

Flat Billed Hat With a Sticker
You don't wear shirts with the tags still on them, or jeans with the long clear sticker with your pant size repeated over and over still stuck to the denim. So why is the sticker still on your hat? I don't care what your reason is; to me, you're probably wearing it and then returning it. So if you're cheap and lazy, Lids should probably check your return for lice as well. By the way, you look like an idiot.

Do you enjoy pulling your pants up all day? I didn't think so.

Schmediums

Schmediums
Look, there are a lot of people who fall in-between size categories. If a guy is wearing a tight shirt, he's usually made fun of for wearing a schmedium when in fact it's probably a Marge, or a Lardium. Just go the size above, guys, not the size below. You don't like hearing schmedium just as much as we don't like saying it. Also, wearing a shirt too tightly makes women think you're vain and trying to show off a figure you may or may not have.

Matchy Matchy

Matchy Matchy
This goes for all ages and all sexes. Matchy Matchy is hideous! Socks with a tie is golden, but additives are ridiculous. Don't match the belt, the pocket square, the shirt and so on. You're spending so much time putting this outfit together just to get made fun of.

Undershirts

Undershirts
Know when to wear one and when to not. Don't wear a wife beater with a white button down. Don't wear crew neck undershirts with a V-neck. There are so many ways to screw this up. As much as you might hate the idea, stick with a slight V-neck undershirt. You'll still get the comfort and protection but not the ugly bacon wrinkled collar hanging out.

Sneakers and Jeans

This is a dad move, and if you're not a dad, an idiot move. Get some loafers or some boots. You'd be surprised how many women hate this look.

All men have disgusting feet. All men. Keep that crap to yourself. Plus, you're making yourself as short as possible.

Either you're trying to be in a fraternity, or you're already in one. Either way, you're still a douchebag.

Worst of the worst of the worst. You're clearly single because no woman would let you out of the house like this. Invest in a steamer, not an iron. Guys hate irons, and it's time consuming. A steamer is a million times quicker and more efficient.

I can't tell you how bad every woman DOES NOT want to screw a man with a rhinestone on his shirt. Affliction and Ed Hardy are the biggest don'ts for a man in the fashion world. You can literally hear the women drying up around you, I promise.
