Style crimes and how to fix them – Part 2

In our last blog, we looked at style crimes and how to fix them. In this blog, we’re going to continue our rescue mission with more tips.

Fabric belts

If you’re a skater or wearing a casual outfit, fabric belts are fine. Great in fact. Never think about wearing a fabric belt with a suit, sports jacket or anything approaching formal

What to wear instead – Invest in a decent quality leather belt. You won’t look like you a skater who has no money.


Ill-fitting jeans

Ill-fitting jeans have been a curse for around two decades now. Where the problem used to be jeans that were too baggy, but what we have today is jeans that are too tight. Both are equally horrendous. Baggy jeans that show us your underwear are just wrong and if you’ve ever worn stupidly baggy jeans you’ll notice that as soon as you wear them in the rain that your trouser legs act as a towel for all the moisture on the ground. Strangely enough, people who wear jeans that are too tight also show us their underwear, because their damn jeans don’t fit either! They can’t pull them up over their arse.

What to wear instead – Find a pair of jeans that fit for god’s sake. This means a pair that don’t show your underwear. If you like the baggier look get a good pair of bootcut or straight leg jeans and if you like the skinnier look don’t get them so they look like leggings. Buy a slim fitting pair instead.


Being dapper

We’ve all seen the look, bow tie, corduroy jacket and tweed trousers paired with a pair of loafers. It’s all very cutesy, but make sure you don’t overdo it or you’ll look like Peewee Herman and no one wants to be associated with what he did.

What to wear instead – Make sure you keep to one or two quirky pieces,  a bowtie is fine as long as the rest of your outfit isn’t. Make sure to have the right balance between quirky and sensible and you should be fine.
