It is true that fashion has no rules, however, fashion does have it's limitations. It is 100% necessary for us to explore fashions subtle shifts, to embrace its fresh ideas, and its revival of old trends. Now with that being said I believe that there are a few pieces that no one should have in their closet. Avoid these pieces at all cost and if you've worn these pieces already now is the time to repent.
Unless you are a 6 year old child there should be no excuses as to why the Kool-Aid man is on your underwear. I understand that ones underwear is not seen by many so it's okay to go the silly route, however, why lower your standards just because you boxers or briefs are hidden away? I believe I've made my point.
If you're going to spend your money on a luxury piece I suggest you spend it on a piece that is timeless. Brands tend to do this because it’s playing on your deep insecurities and need to shout about a big-ass brand to compensate for your obvious lack of personality. Once upon a time gigantic logos were an expression of wealth, which is its own psychological problem in this day and age.
Super Skinny Jeans
Thankfully these are slowly starting to fall off the charts. Truth be told pants so tight as to show off every contour are known as leggings. Also for men wearing tight-fitting jeans can cause urinary tract infections, twisted testicles, bladder weakness and long-term health consequences.
OK, we get that it’s comfortable. But, flip flops should never be paired with jeans to walk around town or when they’re worn with socks. Flip-flops were designed as a cheap, semi-disposable means of walking over hot sand to the cool sea.
Now this may be a controversial one simply because most men like to show off their hard days work at the gym. While I understand this, there are certain pieces that will be unflattering on the human body no matter how hard one tries to make it work. Muscle fitted shirts can make it seem that your shirts are too small for you. The limitation is simple do not have it as part of your formal wear.
I have personally made some of these mistakes. However, the best thing about mistakes is that you can learn from them and do better. Fashion limitations are made up by what is trending and they do not care about personality. This is why the basic are on a need to know basis. Restrictions like these are key to unlocking what your inner creative stylist thinks fits your personality and to help create timeless looks that only you would be known for.
