Man Fashion: Fashion You Should Avoid in this Summer

| comments ( 2 )

Odds are that you have already picked out your shades for this season, learned how to mix and match your outfits and pleasantly blend your summer colors. However, there are plenty of small yet crucial fashion issues we tend to neglect. Taking care of those details is what will actually save you big time from the fashion police, even if you are not conscious of it.

In the summer time, try sticking to lighter colored suits and stay away from the darker ones. Leave the dark colors for the later season. Instead, take this opportunity to be brave with the colors and opt for vibrant colors. Steer clear of heavy fabrics such as thick wool and fleece too.

One of the fashion disasters is to wear sandals with socks. Gentlemen, please note that sandals should never be worn with socks. Sandals are made to be worn bare and not accompanied by socks. If you prefer wearing socks, pick other kinds of shoes that go with the socks.

Even if the weather is burning you up, pass up wearing spaghetti strap tank tops unless you want to look like a meatball. Opt for sleeveless shirts instead.

Another fashion disaster that you should steer clear of would be wearing bicycle shorts even if you are not doing the exact sport. Bicycle shorts tend to scare the other sex instead of attracting them. Hence, stick to regular shorts during the season.

 Summer is the season where we worry about sweat stains the most as they are the ultimate turn off. You do not want to scare off your crush or leave a bad impression on the new people you are meeting. If your shirts are permanently yellow at the armpits, simply get rid of the shirts. Opt for shirts with patterns that could help camouflage your sweat stains if you are the type to sweat it out a lot. On the other hand, if your armpits get sweaty and damp when it's hot, try using a better deodorant or antiperspirant and remember to keep your arms nice and low.

Stay clear of the destructive fashion flux and enjoy the summer looking great.

For important occasions, your hairstyle deserves almost as much consideration as your clothes. There is no point dressing up to the nines but leaving your hair disheveled and uncared for.

If you have short hair, the smooth and slick style is one of the ways to do it. To achieve this formal hairstyle, have the sides and back of your hair cut short and close to the head using clippers and your top layers snipped more jaggedly. Apply a little gel all over your head then using a fine tooth comb, brush the sides of your hair down and back. Add a slight lift to your front to keep your style from being too controlled and don't get hung up on flyaway's.

No one wears the au naturel look better than George Clooney. This hairstyle is a great choice if you are aiming for a formal look. It is easy to maintain and style. All you need is a cut that is fairly uniform in length, a light mousse and a brush with boar bristles. Just be extra careful to avoid overdosing on hair products when you are aiming to attain a naturally groomed style.

The swept back look is a good choice for men with medium-length hair. It is however a little more time consuming. You will need a styling cream, a paddle brush, hairspray and a blow-dryer. Comb the styling cream through wet hair then to create volume in the front, blow-dry on high heat using a paddle brush to lift your hair from the root toward the back of your head. Finish off this style by applying a fine mist of hairspray and then blasting your hair quickly with blow-dryer on cold to keep everything in place.

If you have curly hair, it can be quick to unruly in hot and humid weather and definitely unsightly during formal events. Hence, it is crucial you use the best hairstyling products to avoid this disaster. A good choice of hairstyle would be the cut that is short all over. An example would be like Justin Timberlake.

Side parting is a famous choice when formal is on the mind. Leonardo DiCaprio constantly captures this timeless style. It works best on short to medium length hair. It is also an almost universally flattering style. However, you should avoid it if you have a high forehead.

Styling your hair in a formal way for significant events completes the package and shows others your polished side, whether you have known them for years or you are meeting them for the first time. 

Men Hairstyles to Avoid for First Date

| comments

When you see a girl you like, what do you do? You walk up to her, start up a conversation and hope to score a date. And when you do, what's next? Just turning up for a date dressed up nicely is not going to get you very far. In fact, paying attention to your hairstyle is extremely important too. A bad hair cut can make women avoid you like a plague.

The first hairstyle you should definitely avoid on the first date is the ponytail hairstyle. To women, a ponytail suggests a more negative impression than a positive one. It gives off the impression that you are lazy at keeping up with your appearance or more of a creepy pervert than a thoughtful and considerate possible lover. A shaggy cut is a better alternative if you prefer longer hair.

Another hairstyle you should avoid is slicked back hair. This hairstyle gives off the impression of greasy hair and the wet hair makes your hair appear like a helmet. Women could not resist the temptation of running their hands through their men's hair so excessive amounts of hair product are a definite turnoff.

A comb-over is also a bad choice of hairstyle for first dates. It is a terrible attempt to cover up a balding head. If you are in the early stages of hair loss, grow your bangs slightly longer to cover up receding at the temples.

When it comes to men's hair, anything past the jaw line can look greasy, particularly on the active guys. This hairstyle has the disadvantage of giving your date the impression that you are trying hard to appear youthful. If you want an appearance that suggests an extroverted and fun personality, apt for a shaggy, layered look and use a bit of gel and your fingers to create a slightly messier hairdo.

First impressions are important and hence, it is very important to pay extra attention when presenting yourself in front of the person you are interested in. But taking note of your hairstyle should not just stop at the first date or the second. The best way to know whether or not the hairstyle suit you are to switch up your look once or twice and see if your address book doubles in size.
