A blot on the fashion world, this abomination has been here for quite a while now – jeans which fall on a man’s rear end. Imagine that on a 30-year-old – it simply scars our imagination.
1. Neon Sneakers
We don’t live in a black-and-white world, so it’s completely fine if adults wear colourful sneakers. However, there’s something sinister about a 30-year-old guy opting for neon greensneakers with electric yellow laces. High school is over guys, get real shoes!
2. Sagged Jeans
A blot on the fashion world, this abomination has been here for quite a while now – jeans which fall on a man’s rear end. Imagine that on a 30-year-old – it simply scars our imagination. Please invest in a pair of jeans that fit properly. You’ll actually find yourself looking younger.
3. Fake fragrances
Take a step ahead and pay for a real fragrance, unless you want to smell homeless. Besides, someone with even a little bit of cologne knowledge can catch you red-handed and your game will be over at that very instant. Save yourself the embarrassment and buy a real bottle!
Unless you are a member of an uber-cool rock band, or you’re Salman Khan, wearing a wristband, especially leather is indisputably foolish. Honestly, it’s not even stylish and serves no purpose. It’s not a watch, neither a bracelet, nor a commitment band, it’s just a sign of your reluctance to grow up.
5. T-Shirts with funny slogans
Boys who are not yet 25 might be able to get away with T-shirts that read ‘Moustache Ride *Free*’, but wearing that after you turn 30 makes you look like a pervert. You’ll never be taken seriously. Avoid them the same way you’ll avoid the Ed Hardy T-shirts. Here’s why!
6. Ed Hardy T-shirts
Nothing says ‘desperate creepy attention seeker’ quite like a middle-age man wearing an Ed Hardy T-Shirt. Remember why your best friend was dumped by that hottie before – yes, right, because he was wearing an awful, tacky shiny and obnoxiously loud Ed Hardy T-Shirt. You wouldn’t want to be that guy!
7. Designer sweatpants
Sweatpants, while all purpose, are really not going to get you too far in life. In fact, sweat pants should be used for just those things that make you sweat. There are many middle-age men running around in designer sweatpants thinking they look good. Well, guess what – they don’t!
