Must-Read: Summer Fashion Mistakes
So, if the crazy heat wave that took over the country the past few weeks didn’t prove it to you: Summer is officially here! What does that mean? (Besides sweltering in your apartment, your air conditioning bills going through the roof, your requirement of wearing about four T-shirts a day just because you sweat through the last one, and that your boxers have some weird pool of sweat pruning your balls?) It means it’s time to break out a whole new wardrobe for the new season! But, it’s not all fun and games. There’s also plenty of “rules” to keep in mind when getting ready for the new season.
Which is why today we’re whisking you over at AskMen.com where they have a guide about the worst fashion mistakes that you may on the “loser” end of this summer. These are things you’re going to want to get through your thick skull before heading out for a night on the town or a day at the beach, or else you may be the laughing stock of your friends. For instance:
Socks and shoes
Any other time of year, we seek to keep our feet bundled up in warm socks: argyle ones for work, a low-cut athletic pair for the gym and, on occasion, the heavy-duty wool variety in the cold months. But summer calls for no socks at all, especially with the footwear of the season — namely, men’s sandals, drivers and boat shoes. Suffocating your feet in any of these with a bright white pair of socks should also require a camera bag and return ticket to Bratislava. Still insisting on coverage of some sort? Invest in knot socks, the no-show alternative to the tourist-favored tube.
Oh, man. That is certainly the worst. So already have socks on? Take em’ off! They’re for winter, you fools. And, best of all, without socks your feet (probably) will not be stinky, and you won’t have as much laundry to do. Win-win!
