Contemporary Styles All Men Should Avoid

Fashion is changing faster than ever before. With social media and the internet at our fingertips, people have the chance to share their perspective of style for the world to see.

It doesn’t matter if the outfit is amazing, or totally fucked up, there is something for everyone and that’s why almost anyone can build a nice following on social media.

Because of what I have seen lately trending on Instagram and other social platforms, I feel responsible to help you understand which outfits are good and which bad. What is good, what’s bad, and what is a total waste of time and money and all you are going to achieve is end up looking like a dork!

Modern Styles That All Men Should Avoid

Trends are like the waves of the ocean. They come and they go away. In 2017 this happens really quickly. If you love investing money into fashion, you’ll always have to be on the lookout for the next big thing.

If you don’t have as much time to spare in order to follow trends and always searching for the next big thing in menswear, then I’d suggest you build a timeless stylish wardrobe. It’s a great way to always look good without putting in too much time.

You can also invest into both – contemporary menswear and classic menswear. It’s a great way to show off your style and still look nice.

Trying to Incorporate Sportswear with Classic Style

Bad looking athleisure outfits
These outfits are a very BAD example of athleisure style!

Sportswear has been all over the place this year.And for a reason, it looks great when done right! There are more and more designers jumping on the trend waggon. I do admit some of them have pretty cool designs, but there’s been a style mix-up.
Business casual is great! Looks amazing! 

Athleisure with dressy accessories – NO!

However, mixing joggers with coats? Nah! It’s an awful trend that will go away next year and you’ll realise how bad you’re looking if you are wearing this style right now.

Instead, keep it classy. There are things that go well with button ups, coats and all the classic menswear. As there are things that will never look good together. Just skip this trend because it will make you look like a total idiot.

This is how you can go stylishly and casual.

Ill Fitting Pants


Ill fitting relaxed pants
This trend will never look good!

There has been a trend circulating the fashion world and that is wide pants and all kinds of trousers. Although there is a place and time where this style would look amazing if pulled off right, most of the times men mess it up.

If you aren’t very style savvy and you are just discovering the world of dressing well, then make sure you have your trousers perfectly tailored. No one will look bad with well-tailored pants.

The RIGHT way to rock comfortable pants!


Man wearing romper
Do I need to give any explanation? Just don’t wear clothes meant for newborns!

To be absolutely honest with you I sometimes can’t understand why some trends just pick up. Men in rompers look bad and most likely they will always look bad. There is just no place and time where you’ll look alright wearing baby clothes.

High Pants Pinroll

Badly rolled pants.
This how NOT to roll your pants!

Do I have to talk about this?

Pinrolling your can be very stylish, indeed. It brings out the character of the outfit, and if you slap on a great, fun pair of socks then you are the most stylish man in the room. Period.

However, if you pin roll your pants like a fisherman then you will look anything but good. A nice pin roll needs taste. A cool pair of socks and nice shoes. BOOM you’re the fucking best!

This is how to roll your pants and look great!

Too Much Stripes

Awful way to wear stripes!
This is how NOT to wear stripes!

I just can’t help myself but notice the ongoing fashion of stripes. Don’t get me wrong, stripes are amazing and if you know how to pull off any type of striped clothing then you are an absolute fashion icon! However mixing two types of different stripes or window panes rarely work well.

What I’d suggest is to stick with one type of stripes and rock it. Sometimes it’s even great if only one part of your outfit is striped, thus making it the accent of the outfit.

Striped outfits!
Instead, opt for this type of outfits.

Two in One Shoe

A two in one shoes
Just go for a normal loafer.

Being one of the trends that I have mixed feelings about it. You can say that they have been made with comfort and versatility in mind, but two in one shoe just isn’t something that would look good in 2 years.

In my opinion, you should stick with nice, classic shoes and keep them in top condition. This is the best bet for any man.
