Avoid Letting These Fashion Mistakes Ruin Your High-End Outfit

Posted on: 15 June 2016

If you're the type of man who enjoys buying high-end clothing to look your best at work or out on the town, it's important that you do the little things to make your overall outfit stand out — for the right reasons. The last thing you want to do is invest in a high-end wardrobe, only to be constantly committing fashion mistakes that reduce the impact of how you look. Here are some fashion errors that you should be careful to avoid.

Not Matching Your Belt And Shoes

You often don't need to look very far to find a man who is dressed well but has committed the fashion mistake of not matching his belt and shoes. When you're wearing dress shoes with your high-end outfit, your belt needs to match both the color and shade of the shoes. Black, brown or gray — just make sure to follow this rule.

Wearing A Backpack

When you've made a significant investment in your outfit, you can easily reduce the impact by wearing a backpack. Remember, backpacks are for kids going to school, not men taking public transportation to work. Instead of throwing a backpack on, invest in a high-end messenger bag or carry a briefcase. These accessories will pair perfectly with your fancy attire.

Having Your T-Shirt Visible

If you're wearing a button-up dress shirt but are skipping the tie, it's always a good idea to wear a white undershirt underneath. Don't make the mistake, however, of wearing a crew-neck T-shirt. Because you should leave the top button of the dress shirt undone, the T-shirt will be visible — and can quickly hinder your look. When you're not wearing a tie, make sure that you grab a V-neck undershirt in the morning.

Wearing Bulky Underwear

You might not give your underwear much consideration when you're getting dressed in your high-end outfit, but boxer shorts can often be problematic when you're wearing slim-fit pants. The bulk of the boxers can actually be visible beneath your pants, which is definitely a look you're not going for. On days that you're dressing in slimmer-cut pants, boxer briefs are a better underwear choice.

Keeping Things In Your Pockets

Granted, a suit has a number of pockets — but you really should avoid using them. Your wallet, car keys and other bulky objects can stretch the pockets of a suit and make you look wrinkled and unkempt. Keep bulky items in your messenger bag or somewhere else safe. Generally, only your cellphone should be kept in your suit pocket.
