This is a guest post from\u00a0FatalDose.\r\nDressing up for an upcoming formal event? Wearing a simple suit is not that simple! Anyone can put on a formal outfit, but if you want that fabulous James Bond, macho look, then there are some fashion rules! When worn right, a suit has the power to transform your personality completely and will make you \u2018THE\u2019 eye candy of the event.\r\n\r\nWhether it is Leonardo in The Gatsby or Daniel Craig in Specter killing bad guys, every classy man in Hollywood has one thing in common \u2013 the suit! Regardless of the price tag, you can dress to kill at your next big event by avoiding some simple mistakes.\r\n\r\nIf you\u2019re longing for a look that will turn even woman\u2019s eyes on you, then avoid these simple men\u2019s formal dressing mistakes, to get compliments all night long!\r\n\r\n\r\nWhen Trousers Puddle Over Your Laces\r\nCall it laziness or lack of attention, but men with their trousers pudding over their laces is a big no, no! There are many ways to make a statement with your clothes and this is not one of them!\r\n\r\nNo matter how incredibly you\u2019re dressed in your nice patterned shirt and smartly cut blue suit, but if your unhemmed trousers flow over the top of your shoes like a molten rubber, you will never be able to get the attention your outfit deserves!\r\nBoat Shoes with Formal Suit\r\nIt is an epidemic! Shoes with plastic soles and pointy ends won\u2019t make you look stylish, but will definitely ruin your style forever!! Boat shoes are not even marginally accepted in any formal attire, and they look more like footwear for elves than humans.\r\n\r\nShoes are a very important part of any outfit, and there is nothing sadder than a well-dressed man wearing medieval peasant footwear. No one will find them attractive, no one!\r\n\r\n\r\nWearing a String Instead of a Tie\r\nThe reign of floppy, skinny, and pointless ties are over! And they are never coming back in style! If you\u2019re looking to achieve that perfect macho gaze, then going with an average-sized Windsor style knot ties is the way to go! A tie represents a man\u2019s fashion wisdom and wearing neck strings like Scout toggles will get you nowhere!\r\nWearing Different Coloured Belt and\u00a0Shoes\r\nIf you want to look like a real gentleman, then always wear a belt that matches your shoes in terms of material, color, and finish. For example, if you\u2019re wearing brown leather shoes, go for a brown leather belt. Never match your belt with your suit\u2019s color, as it will only make your shoes pop up, weirdly.\r\nOver Accessorising Your Suit\r\nAccessories are essential to make your formal look complete, but overdoing it will only land you in the pool of fashion disasters of the event. Pieces of jewelry are designed to complement your look, like cufflinks, tie bar, and a cool watch. If you\u2019re already wearing these accessories, avoid adding more like a lapel pin, which can take your look down from sexy to tacky in minutes.\r\n\r\n\r\nWhen You Think Ill-Fitting is Power Dressing\r\nThe trend of ill-fitted suits is resting in peace with the 60s, and anyone who tries to bring them back is just playing with fire. If your jacket pads are hanging over the brink of your shoulders, you\u2019re not fooling anyone into thinking you\u2019re the coolest men at the event. Get a tailored fit suit to make ladies drool over your looks, or simply get a better suit.\r\nShirt Collar Hanging Outside Suit Lapel\r\nNo, no, and a big no! Wearing your shirt\u2019s collar outside of your suit is a dangerous move that can ruin your dream of looking the best \u2013 simply not a smart move! Tug in the shirt collar and get that perfect, sleek look that will make every woman weak in their knees.\r\n\r\nSwear by these fashion mistakes, and you will always be able to make a fashion statement, effortlessly.\r\n\r\nNet-entrepreneur, skydiver and all around adventure addict, Dominik is also the founder of\u00a0FatalDose.
