10 Signs Your Man Needs Fashion Lessons

At some point, most men stumble into a fashion faux pas that causes his significant other to shudder. Women generally seem to accept the occasional poor choice as par for the course, but it can be frustrating when you have a repeat offender on your hands. Here are a few of the more common clues that it’s time to set up an intervention.

  1. He Unbuttons His Shirt Too Far – Have you ever been with your sweetie and found yourself thinking of Miami Vice? Visible chest hair is a sure sign that he needs some tutoring.
  2. He’s Swimming in His Suit – There are few things that look as good on a man as a well-tailored suit. It doesn’t, do him a favor and get him fitted for your next special occasion.
  3. He Tucks His T-Shirt In – A t-shirt is meant to be casual, but tucking it into his jeans makes your guy look stuffy. Unless he’s going for the middle-aged tourist look, letting the hem fall naturally is the way to go.
  4. He Wears a Tank Top – If he’s not a Jersey Shore cast member, wearing a tank by itself isn’t acceptable. Even if he’s built like the Situation, sporting a tank top away from the gym is a bad situation. Encourage him to treat a tank top like the undershirt it’s intended to be.
  5. He Wears Flip-Flops With Everything – Flip-flops are for the beach or the pool. Period. Wearing them with anything else puts off a slacker/frat boy vibe, and makes it difficult for anyone to take him seriously.
  6. He Thinks White Athletic Socks Go With Anything – We’ve all seen it: a man in dress slacks and nice shoes shifts in a way that reveals his socks, and they’re tubes. Avert this cringe-fest by gently explaining that every man should have a few pairs of dress socks, then stock them in his drawer for him. If he has them on hand, he’s much more likely to actually wear them.
  7. His Underwear Are Visible – People shouldn’t be able to tell if he’s a boxers or briefs man unless they’ve watched him get dressed. Exposed underwear means that his pants don’t fit, or that he can’t be bothered to put on a belt.
  8. He Has A Collection of Novelty Ties – There’s nothing professional or classy about a tie adorned with cheeseburgers, Bart Simpson, or footballs. To pull off a novelty tie, a man needs to possess a very specific kind of quirky fashion sense that most men simply don’t have. Urge him to forgo the wacky prints in favor of a more conservative look.
  9. He Wears Socks With Sandals – This one should go without saying, but somehow this simple rule hasn’t made it through the heads of most men. There’s never a time that pairing socks and sandals is okay.
  10. He Doesn’t Match His Belt and Shoes – A brown belt should be worn with brown shoes, a black one with black shoes. Mixing them seems like a small issue, but it always sticks out like a sore thumb. This is one of the quickest ways to ruin what is otherwise a perfectly acceptable outfit.

By following these guidelines, your man will be dressing himself like a pro in no time at all.
