Listen up, boys!

This one's for all the straight boys because let's face it, most of you need help. I specifically mentioned "straight guys" because the gays know how to dress. As a self-described fashion addict who calls Vogue her Bible, I have some advice for all the men who don't know a thing about what to wear. Bear in mind, these are my opinions only. However, my taste is impeccable and you would be a fool to say otherwise. :p

  • very few men can pull off white linen pants.
  • socks with sandals is never allowed.
  • the white t-shirt under the button-up shirt style went out long ago. let it RIP.
  • skinny jeans are bad for health. they're literally one of the reasons for male sterility. also, it's not attractive to women.
  • Ed Hardy shirts are out. Sorry. Unless you're trying to look like a wannabe, get rid of them.
  • statement shirts are also out. e.g. "your dress would look better on my floor" or "want to study anatomy at my place?"
  • huge gold chains don't look good on you. especially when they're fake.
  • unless you have legs like Rafael Nadal's, don't wear capris
  • jeans that hover at your ankles are not attractive.
  • unless you have arms like Rafael Nadal's, don't wear sleeveless shirts.
  • unless you actually exercise, don't walk around in workout wear. you don't want to be a poser.
  • black denim is still not back in style for men.
  • don't wear one brand head to toe. mix it up.
  • when in doubt, go with a polo and jeans.
  • cargo shorts are good. as long as the color is decent.
  • sweater vests are sexy when done right.
  • make sure you dress appropriately for your height and weight.
  • when you bend over, no one wants to see skin.
  • never wear shorts that end above the knees. never.
  • if you're going to tuck in your shirt, tuck all of it in. don't go halfway.
Some of the best-dressed men I've seen and been told about:

Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Ranbir Kapoor, David Beckham, James Bond, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ronson, Robert Downey Jr, Zachary Quinto, Will Smith, Justin Timberlake, Siddharth Narayan, Farhan Akhtar
