True or False? 5 Fashion Myths Debunked

Since I was a kid, I loved breaking the rules. This is why I’ve debunked 5 myths that have shaped male fashion over the last 200 years.

True or False? 5 Fashion Myths Debunked

YOU NEED A GREAT BODY TO LOOK GOOD: FALSE

What you do with your body is your own damn business. This is why needing a great body to look good is completely false. If you can find the right resources. The first tip is to know your measurements. Sounds rudimentary, but if you’ve got your neck size, arm length, chest, etc… you’ll make it easy on yourself to find the right fit.

The second is to find brands that work for your body. Every brand fits differently. Once you find “the one” don’t be afraid to stick to it. It’s OK to have a small rotation of brands.

Lastly, your scale can be a mindfuck for your fashion picks. Don’t let it.

🗝️

1. know your measurements
2. find the right brands that work
3. don’t let the scale deter you

DRESSING WELL COSTS A LOT OF MONEY: FALSE

Thrifting is an x-factor because fashion has never been more democratized. Head to a Goodwill (or a local thrift shop) and comb through the store. You’ll be surprised at what you find and what you can repurpose.

This also goes for second-hand apps. You can find a wide range of clothes from the comfort of your couch. Apps like Depop, Poshmark, or higher-end ones like Farfetch are perfect for this.

Fast fashion is also an option (if sustainability isn’t your thing). These options are mad cheap and provide great quality products. I prefer ASOS, but you can check out places like Uniqlo or boohoo.

🗝️

1. thrifting
2. second online shops depending on taste
3. fast fashion

PINK IS A NO GO: FALSE

I’m a firm believer in colors. I wasn’t always like that though. Build your confidence by starting small and trying things you wouldn’t typically. Try it from a brand you trust. That way you’re a little more comfortable in your skin. Continue to test the waters till your comfortable jumping all in.

🗝️

1. trust your confidence
2. find the right match
3. don't overdo it

BLACK AND BROWN IS A NO-GO COMBINATION: KINDA FALSE?

It can be. All black with a brown jacket can look great. The latter, not so much… There’s a grey area with this because you’re dealing with two very distinct and foundational colors. Go with your best judgment. It feels like it’s too much it probably is haha.

Accessorizing only helps here. It adds another layer to your fit that will balance out the black and brown. Things like a chain necklace, rings, or hats can add flair.

🗝️

1. grey area
2. look for the right shade of brown
3. keep an eye on your accessories

DON'T MIX PATTERNS: FALSE

I’m for pattern mix-up - all day every day. The bolder the better. But some rules do apply. NEVER mix horizontal and vertical lines together. It does more harm than good. And it’ll add 10 lbs to your look, which is something we don’t want.

Really think about which items you want to pattern interrupt. Shirt and tie? Great idea. Shirt and pants? Now that’s overdoing it.

🗝️

1. watch straight lines
2. go for it
3. be smart with your item choice
