6 Funny Male Fashion Dos, Don’ts, And “Oh God, Please Don’ts”
There are countless styles you can choose to rock as a man. Maybe you’re into street style and love wearing fresh Jordans and snapbacks. Or maybe you like to dress smart, opting for a suit instead of a jumper. Everyone can choose a style they love but there are some general fashion “don’ts” you should avoid – and some major “please don’ts” you shouldn’t even think about.
Content creator Jessica Saia was asked by The Bold Italic to put something together for a men’s fashion show and after teaming up with Isla Bell Murray, the two decided to try something less traditional. They created a list of male fashion dos and don’ts and it’s as accurate as it is hilarious.
In an interview with Bored Panda, Jessica said this approach sounded much funnier and more interesting. “I had a friend sew the super-deep-V-neck and my friend Luke modeled for the photos,” said Jessica. “It was definitely one of the most fun articles I produced.”
Jessica says she is no fashion expert – she’s just someone who thought inverse cutoff shorts and socks over sandals was funny. “But I think there’s a spectrum of giving your wardrobe zero thought and way overthinking it,” explained the author. “There are a lot of guys in San Francisco who seem to just wear whatever free clothes their company gives them with the logo on it, and I find that sort of uninspiring… but hey, people have different priorities.” She says that her own partner wears the same thing every single day like a cartoon character, and it seems to work for him.
“Everyone has a favorite shirt or sweater; think about what you like about it and then try to find things that have those elements to it. Also, trying on a certain kind of jacket or pants that you’ve never worn before can be really surprising,” advised Jessica. “No matter what the style is, having things fit makes a huge difference. And it’s worth remembering that the fashion industry is the second-largest polluter in the world, just behind the oil industry; so getting things that last or shopping at second-hand stores is a good way to go.”
