We know you’d like to know more, and for that, you’ll have to consult our ebook for more details on the men’s wear that women hate. 

Meanwhile, let’s briefly go straight to these absolute “don’ts of men’s wear.”

1. Extremely Baggy Pants

Incredibly right before the word, baggy is a bad combination. It’s okay if you’re a laborer in the fields or filming for a Santa Claus role, but going for a date, hangout, or a formal event, it’s a no!

Women hate men who encase themselves in pants that look handed down to them from a family antique collection. The same goes for shirts and tees. It screams lack of style, and you don’t want any of this now, or do you? So, instead of wearing baggy pants, try well-fitted pants that are just the right size. Take note, not too tight and not too loose either, or you might end up disappointed in the uncomfortable effect on onlookers.

2. Extra Skinny Jeans/Pants

Okay, you’re probably thinking, if baggy pants won’t cut it, how about skinny jeans/pants? The same way a woman clothed in too tight clothes would make most men cringe; it does the same vice versa. Baggy pants are a no-no, but extra skinny is even worse. 

The word here is well fitted, not extra tight. No one wants to see your thighs, crotch, or calves hugged by a pair of jeans/pants. It’s a total turn off. Keep it moderate! Well fitted is the word. 

3. The Wrong Color of Socks

Matching the wrong color of socks to an outfit is a total disaster, a huge turn off! It’s even worse when you get to pair that outfit with white sporting socks, outside a sports attire or outfit. And it’s even worse when you decide not to wear any socks with an outfit that certainly demands one. For tips on how to wear your socks, the right color, our ebook, “25 Mistakes of Style,” lists this common trend as mistake number 4 and is designed to help you do it right. 

4. Mismatched Belts and Shoes

Even in your mind’s eye, a mismatched combination is tragic. Matching your shoes to your belt color, or one not so off-color shows your knowledge, and how well vested in men’s wear you are. Anything outside this is something you’d want to avoid. It shows a real lack of style or the knowledge thereof. Women hate it. No one wants to feel embarrassed being spotted with a man who can barely match simple accessories.

Here’s an additional tip for belting: ensure you don’t go flaunting belts with big buckles. It makes no sense, especially on a formal outfit.

5. Showing Off

Be it with your over a draped outfit or by your actions and mannerisms. Women hate a man who shows off. Apart from screaming no style, because it makes no sense why you would be overdressed in the name of being stylish, it shows you’re insecure and seek attention. Trust me. Women do not take this lightly. 

To top it all, do not let your talk be centered around you alone. Conversations about your work, achievement, life, or just everything that screams you alone gives off a selfish vibe and seem attention-seeking. No one gets attracted to a needy person. So yes, women do hate this about men. It shows you lack class and style. Just keep it simple and tone it down. 

6. Wrinkled Clothing

It’s one thing to acquire the right set of outfits, but it’s another thing to get them well pressed into good condition. Wearing wrinkled clothes, no matter the quality and the right size, they may invariably pass the same message across to women. 

”He lacks style!”

Ensure you iron your clothes properly before pulling them on. This not only boosts your confidence but makes you desirable and attractive, like one who has style.

7. Shirts with Deep V-Necks

This is a personal turn off for most females. May you want to wear a V-neck shirt? Fine. Maybe just a little of it. But having it dip down your chest and exposing what’s supposed to be tucked inside a shirt such as your undershirts or singlets is a huge turn-off. It makes no sense. Instead, you may be perceived as a child, a bit, screaming for attention, and that isn’t what you want. 

So instead of going for deep V-necks, why not try other round necks tees instead? A well fitted one with the right color will undoubtedly make the best impression, instead of setting yourself up for criticizing stares.

8. Unkempt Facial Hair

No doubt, women take a great liking to men with facial hair, and going with the trend of today, facial hair remains one of the top essentials in what most women like in men. If you’re in the bearded gang category, you’re mostly going to be the women’s favorite. However, as much as this feature is among the things that endear you to women, it can also be the same thing that sends them hurrying in the opposite direction when you draw closer.

An unkempt beard comes off as a lack of care for your hygiene, and just so you know, women don’t fancy that. Unkempt beards are in no way trendy. It deviates from the purpose of keeping beards. So if you’re going the trendy beard keeping way, be sure to trim regularly, or you might want to consider going beardless. 

9. Pairing the Wrong Shoes with an Outfit

Your shoes are one of the first things women tend to notice about you when you approach them, even if they may be smiling into your face. Pairing the right shoes to an outfit may not come naturally to some, and that’s why we prepared these helpful tips on how to pair the perfect shoe with an outfit.
