16 Fashion Faux Pas (For Guys)

1. Cartoon Ties. C'mon, guys. Cheeeeesy!!! :D

2. Guys that wear printed t-shirts under white dress shirts? Maybe you didn't know, but we can see the pizza logo and phone number through your shirt!!
3. High-waters are a BIG no-no!

4. Brown belt, black shoes. Don't do it.
5. I'm not sure if this is exactly a boo boo. But, if you're trying to win Nicole's heart, DO NOT wear a silver suit! This is the ultimate in fashion faux pauxcity, in her opinion.

6. White sports socks with your black suit...Ewww...
7. Pink shirts. I don't care if you ARE perfectly secure in your masculinity...the rest of us are NOT!
8. Skinny jeans OR skinny dress pants. It seems like this would be an obvious, but going to different conferences, you'd be surprised at how much of this we see. IT. IS. GROSS.
9. Iron the wrinkle out that the hanger makes in your pants. It's not THAT hard, is it?
10. Short ties.
11. Neon orange dress socks. (Granpsnak!)
12. I don't like unibrows...BUT! Even more scary is a guy that does his own eyebrows. Get married. Let your wife do them. You don't want to look like Bert from Sesame Street.
13. Non-pleated dress pants. It looks feminine.
14. Bed hair. Do yo hair...use a comb! It looks like this:

15. Super pointy-toed shoes.

16. White walls. (This is what happens when you mow the lawn when your hair is longish, then get a haircut. You'll have a white line all along your neck).
