Guys, most likely you want to come across as well dressed and stylish to impress a particular woman. But just like women, you are destined to make fashion errors every now and then. Read through this slideshow to find out some fashion mistakes that men tend to repeat that result in turning women off.

Men constantly make this fashion mistake. Even though wearing socks with sandals may be comfortable, it will never be acceptable or sexy to a woman. There is honestly no practical purpose for pairing socks with sandals. And no, you cannot pull this look off while looking sexy.
The sole purpose of wearing sandals is for comfort and ventilation. Wearing socks with your sandals defeats this purpose and will make you look tacky. Many people consider sandals a summer fashion, so why would you need to wear socks with them in extremely warm weather?

2. Character Tops
Most women despise when men walk around wearing characters, such as Iron Man, on their t-shirts. Why? For women, it makes them feel that you're a child. In addition, it comes across to them that you are going to need mothering. A lot of women will get the impression that you are immature because you still want to be involved with superheroes. They are also are very unlikely to get the reference.
However, even though many women don't like these shirts on men, some do! Some women don't mind their partner wearing a shirt with a character on it. Not surprisingly, this is commonly also the same woman who wears Barbie on her t- shirt. But, when you are going on the first date, it is best to not wear a character shirt because you don't know the woman's taste in style yet.
3. Anything Containing Naked Ladies
Absolutely no woman is ever going to fancy you if you have a naked woman on your shirt. When seeing it, woman often will think that they are being objectified. It is also not very classy either. When a man wears one of these shirts, it is extremely hard for a female to picture a future with him.
According to a woman on thoughtcatalog.com, "they're the ultimate clothing accessory if you want to look like a man who'd use girls as sex objects." Another woman commented on reddit.com that walking around with half naked women on your shirt will make you look shallow and stupid. Seriously, imagine a man going to meet his girlfriend's parents for the first time, while wearing a shirt with a nude girl on it. Chances are, her parents are not going to approve of him.

In conclusion, your suit should fit properly!

Getting measured only takes about ten minutes and an advisor can also suggest a color and style depending on the reason you are purchasing the suit.
6. Wrinkled Shirt
Almost every woman despises when men wear wrinkled clothing. Wearing something that is wrinkled is a cue to women that you are only wearing it because you have to. When going on a date or an interview, never wear a wrinkled shirt, because chances are, you will be judged for it. All you need to do is iron your clothing, which only takes a few minutes. If you don't want to spend the time ironing, you can get your clothing professionally ironed. Ironed shirts in particular always look more dignified.
Most men are attracted to women who wear clothes that are not wrinkled or sloppy. So it makes sense that women are no different. Having freshly ironed shirts sends a message to women that you are the kind of man they want.

The overly tight t-shirt look will make you come across as a cocky playboy to many girls because a person's style often reflects their attitude.

A shirt should fit you properly all around. It should be be slighted fitted and not skin tight! In addition, tight shirts will restrict your movement. They are also extremely uncomfortable anyway. But overall, the most important thing is being confident and happy with what you are wearing.
8. Crop Tops

Honestly, no women wants to see your stomach, especially if you have a beer gut. However, it certainly isn't about your size that turns women off. It is simply about how you present yourself, and showing the world your stomach isn't a good presentation. Your goal is to wear clothes that are best suited for you, including shirts, pants, and jackets.
Try to wear something that is going to flatter you and get a woman's attention in a good way. Of course, any man wearing a "crop top" like shirt is going to get attention, but it definitely isn't going to be out of lust from women.

Of course, it is ultimately your decision whether or not you wear white briefs, especially if no woman is going to see your underwear in a million years. But, if your goal is to charm a woman, your best bet is to wear either colored briefs or boxers.
10. Mixed and Matched Outfits
Anyone can be tempted to blend various styles and looks. Guys do it when they are trying to copy looks that they see in magazines. The common reason for this is because they can't decide which style they like the best, and so, they put them all together. Even though you may think you look fashionable and stylish, this isn't the truth.
