The Worst Advice We've Ever Heard About Fashion

by - 1/12/2015




For almost a year, writing a blog post about fashion, it's all about female territory - - in fashion with a capital F. What we usually think of is that Fashion is for WOMEN and Sports is for MEN, but waking up and dressing in is not only for women, but also for men considering we need to see what works with the woman that doesn't work with a man.

The contrasting world of Women's and Men Fashion is not new to us. Unfortunately, what ever have said about the two is being misunderstood, comparing man and woman in general.

Now, let us combine the two -- MEN and WOMEN Fashion Worst advice you ever heard that you should know and avoid in the future.


DRESS DOESN'T MATTER. I know you usually heard this thing, especially if you are into fashion thingy.

It doesn't matter how you dress, what matter's more is who you are inside(your personality and attitude) that really counts. 

Really? Well, it can boost up self-esteem especially if you are in doubt about what you wear or you feel uncomfortable wearing it but the truth is not that great.

How you wear your clothes well tell people who you really are. Remember the quote, FIRST IMPRESSION LAST, so if you are in an interview or in a fashion business, or in a gathering if anyone sees you how you project with confidence and you feel good about yourself, they will see you as a professional and have that positive view of your life.


Clothes you wear, a sign of what type of person you are!

BUY EXPENSIVE CLOTHES, IT IS MORE FASHIONABLE AND FIT YOUR SIZE. An exaggerated advice that is not true. There are clothing line that are not expensive but gives you satisfaction in terms of comfort and styles. What you need here is QUALITY clothes that are fashionable to wear but not that expensive.



TRENDING CLOTHES YOU ARE IN. After the size and the styles comes the TRENDS issue.  TRENDS are the lingua franca of Fashion, this is where you are called you "BELONG" if you're wearing what is IN and VIRAL in terms of FASHION. If you know the motto:
"What is very now can very suddenly become very then." But for my say here, even if you are not following what is trending as long as you are comfortable wearing your clothes it doesn't matter at all. Know your comfort, get that attitude.


Wear it with confidence, even if you are OUT of TRENDS.

I really hate this, LARGE CLOTHES MAKES YOU SLIMMER. I am one of the victims as well. I remember someone told me that if I wear large clothes it will give me a slimmer figure. Because of my writing and research I found out that large clothes don't make you look like you're slimmer they just make you look like you are wearing clothes that doesn't fit! Better know your sizes well and look for a good couturier. 

Despite of desperate move and restless ebb and flow of trends about fashion, let us generally think that garments is admired both men and women. 

The real purpose is not to clash the two genders but helping them to send messages by giving them right advice's that will work to boost self-confidence. Whether men will think they're hot or not, the real lesson here is that women's fashion holds for men too, so whatever worst advice you make it affects the whole... it's barely about us all.

  7. Nice article. Because they are very apt! I do see that there's a difference if I wear quality clothings versus cheap clothings, but being a blogger, it's somehow frustrating to be in the fashion contest all the time!

  8. Dressing up is just as important for men as for women, especially for professionals. I do not really go for the price of the brands, more for comfort and fit.

  10. Fashion, for me, doesn't have to be super pricey. It's really about how you carry yourself and how you carry the dress or whatever it is that you're wearing. Fashion for me also entails dressing appropriately :)

  11. Clothes may determine what kind of a person who is wearing them. But they don't really expose the real inside of the person. The point of wearing a fashionable clothes or whatever it is, the comfort, the convenience and protection it could offer to the person.

  12. When I lived in NYC I kept up with all the fashion trends including the designer jeans, bags etc. Since I moved away to a smaller city I've found that I don't care too much about the way I dress. I dress to be comfortable and as long as I'm happy with the way I look I couldn't care less what others thought. :)

  13. Appearance, clothes and style are extremely important nowadays! The way you dress represent yourself in society. That is why it is important to pay attention to what fits you and what doesn't. I always consider my body built when choosing suitable clothes so that I don't look ridiculous or funny.

  14. Agree with some of your points in particular point 2 but have second thoughts about the last point.

  15. Fashion and style really comes from within a person and the financial capabilty to purchse for trending. Well, suitable from one person is not suitable for another. Better learn and make it happen.

  19. These myths made me laugh out loud. There are clothes that look good on us and those that don't; anything else is an opinion.

  20. Savvy advice you have there. It is true that fashion is not only for women, but both gender. More and more people are accepting this fact, seeing that there are a lot of male fashion bloggers nowadays.

  21. The expensive advice is really ridiculous. I always believe something affordable can look luxurious with the right pairings and attitude!

  22. I don't choose clothes merely because they are expensive. Prices aren't really my gauge. I'd rather choose a cheaper one that suits and fits me best! :-) Fashion may have been female's corner, but I think men's fashion has also began growing. There is a need to also advocate men's fashion. I've seen ridiculously dressed (is it a good term?), but they look like they are so confident with what they wear. I can only laugh at the back of my mind. ahaha
