We have been showing you a lot of style tips for the formal (or semi-formal) suit. But, in today’s blog, let’s take a closer look into mistakes most men make when wearing a suit!
Everyone wants to look stylish, even on formal occasions. The right accessories can help you achieve this. But sometimes, even the best pieces of accessories couldn’t help you if you wear too many of them.
Picking the right pieces for your suit is a real art
When it comes to men accessories, we have pocket squares, tie bars, bracelets, watches, or even pocket watches. But all of these together? It’s a big big NO.
Pick a maximum of 3 accessories; don’t overcompensate by making them the boldest they can be. For formal events, pick a decent tie pin and a pocket square. And if it’s a semi-formal occasion, just a cool hand watch and a bracelet are enough to make you stand out of the crowd.
Dress shirts are meant to be tucked in. Dress shirts are designed with extra length so that they do not come untucked. So please, tuck in your dress shirt before going anywhere.
If you don’t like to tuck your shirt in, choose a different style to wear. But if you have to wear formal attire, choose a shirt style that has a shorter, casual cut.
A tucked-in dress shirt can bring out the best gentleman in you
Your undershirt should never be visible because it is meant to be “under” - just like your underwear. If you like to leave some buttons undone, go for a V-neck undershirt.
Your undershirt should never be exposed like this
This is probably the ultimate rookie mistake. A dress shirt that’s too large will make you look fatter, stumpier. Simply put, it’s not a good look at all.
Make sure that your collar has no more than two fingers of room; the shoulder seams hit the edge of your shoulder.
These days, you can easily access to tons of affordable dress shirt that can satisfy your body type. So, don’t make any excuses and start picking the right dress shirt for you.
A fit dress shirt is a soul to every suit
We know that there is one golden rule when it comes to how to dress nicely: matching details. But too matchy-matchy is a no go.
Honestly, we’re not sure why stores still sell matching tie and pocket square sets. Wearing a tie and pocket square cut from the exact same fabric will make your outfit look contrived and overdone.
Of course, there’s no issue with buying a matching set at all, we still recommend never wearing both pieces at the same time.
Instead, choose a pocket square complements your tie but doesn’t match too closely. When in doubt, a simple white square is the best.
