21 Things Men Should NEVER Wear | Ashley Weston
Hi, I'm Ashley Weston and I'm a celebrity menswear stylist. So, today I want to talk about the 21 things men should never wear. So, I'm sure when you're getting dressed up, you're trying to impress your boyfriend, girlfriend, wife; you're trying to impress someone. So, my girlfriends and I all got together, and we put together a list that we're like never, on the face of this earth, I don't care what year it is, should a guy ever be wearing these items. So, these are in no particular order, all of these are bad so they're all basically number one on my list, but the first one is you should never wear gaudy rings or any kind of pinky rings.
I see it in GQ and Esquire, they all have the pinky rings. Please, don't do that, it just looks so tacky and gross, like don't do the big, chunky, gaudy rings; you don't need that.
And the second thing that you should never wear is too much cologne. I don't want to be able to smell you from six feet away. I don't even want to get near you; you're basically now repelling people. So, if you are going to wear cologne, make sure to just spray your fingertip once, dab it on the inside of your wrist, go like this and use that same fingertip with the little excess of cologne and dab it on both sides of your neck. That's it; that's all you need.
Go without cologne. The third point is you should not be wearing socks with your sandals. I don't even think I have to explain this. Socks with your sandals, it's a no-no, and that kind of just leads us into the fourth point, which is you shouldn't be wearing sandals at all unless you're at the beach or you're going for a swim, that's the only time it's appropriate. Women, they don't want to see your toes, nobody wants to see your toes, I'm sorry.
The fifth thing that you should not be wearing is shorts that go past your knees. It is just way too juvenile looking, wear a proper short that ends at the right length, which is usually between mid to lower thigh but not past your knees, please. The next thing you should not be wearing are just old, worn out, dirty shoes. The first thing we look at are your shoes so please keep them fresh. Once they're past their prime, get rid of them.
The seventh thing you should not be wearing are cartoon printed boxers.
Talk about just like you're a little kid, it's like you still want to be a boy again. Get some boxer briefs in like black, navy, charcoal, some solid colors, I've done a whole video about underwear so check that link out in the video description below. The eighth thing that you should not be wearing are t-shirts with a bunch of logos on them. So, I don't want to see any t-shirts with Budweiser or Harley Davidson, or like a sports team, outside of a sporting event.
Women don't want to see that. They want to see you in just like a crisp, solid color t-shirt, I did a whole video about t-shirts so check that in the link, which I'll put in the video description below. And the next thing that you should not be wearing really goes without saying, but all of us women feel so adamant about this, you shouldn't be wearing baggy, ill-fitting clothes, period.
I did a whole series about how your clothes should fit, because it's that important, so I've linked that in the video description below, go check it out. The 10th thing you shouldn't be wearing are tank tops, it's just gross, it's like armpit hair exposed and sometimes they have the tank tops with the nipples exposed, I don't want to see that, no woman wants to see that, don't do it.
And the next thing that you should not be wearing are skinny jeans, go with a nice slim-fit pair of jeans, leave that skinny jeans shit to all the little skater boys out there. The 12th thing that you should not be wearing are pointy shoes, ugh, I can't believe pointy shoes still exist, it's like pointy and square shoes, horrible, please don't do that, burn all of those, it's so dated and ugly, don't be that guy.
The next thing you shouldn't be wearing are deep V-neck t-shirts, that's a lot of chest being exposed, don't do it, please. The 14th thing that you should never wear are big or square or monogrammed belt buckles. Please don't do it, it's like instantly, douche bag alert, like the alarms go off.
And the next thing that you should never wear are leather bracelets, when I see a guy wearing a leather bracelet, I think he's like trying to be like this bad boy, it doesn't come off as that, it's the opposite and it's like you're trying too hard.
Instead, go with a nice watch. And the 16th thing that you should not be wearing are elongated shirts on their own, maybe as a layering piece, but even that's pushing it. Instead, just get some shirts that fit properly. The 17th thing that you should not be wearing are soul patches.
(giggles) Nobody wants this want right here, it's so not attractive, it's so gross. When you're talking to me, I'm just going to be looking at this little piece of, chunk of hair right here, and nobody wants to kiss that, no soul patch okay? Either go with like a beard, something proper, or just clean-shaven. And the 18th thing that you should not be wearing are Crocs, I mean do I really need to explain any further? The 19th thing that guys should never wear are earrings and facial piercings.
So I've definitely seen really cute guys with facial piercing and earrings but I'm able to overlook all of that because they're so damn cute but that's not the case for most guys and the thing is though, is facial piercings and earrings really take away from the attractiveness of you, please don't do it, women, they're not into it, they're not like oh wow, you're so sexy because you have that nose piercing or because you've got that earring right there. The next thing that you should not be wearing are short-sleeve sweatshirts. This has been recently rocked a lot by Kanye West, now I'm starting to see a lot of guys out there wearing it, it looks gross, please avoid any kind of cutoff sweatshirt situation, you don't need it.
The last and final point: do not ever wear dress shoes with those sneaker soles on them. Why not just wear either a dress shoe or a sneaker?
