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.
1. Socks with Sandals
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. People have tried numerous times, and have failed miserably.
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? According to thebrunettediaries.com, wearing socks with sandals is the "biggest insult to fashion and all those who have worked hard to bring fashionable styles into the industry."
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.
4. Ill-fitted Jeans
Women HATE when men were low rise jeans, baggy jeans, overly long jeans, and any jeans that don't fit him correctly. But surprisingly, most men make this fashion mistake repeatedly. A man will never look like a good dresser if he is wearing ill-fitting clothes.
Low-waist jeans on a man can and most likely will end up looking unnecessarily baggy, while showing off your builder's bum. There is no reason what-so-ever to wear your jeans so low! Remember to also never wear overly skinny jeans either. Skinny jeans are a huge turnoff to women because they can literally see everything on you.
5. Ill-fitting Suits
The easiest way for a man to seduce a woman is to wear a tailored suit. These suits constantly yell poise and sex appeal. You will definitely turn a woman off by wearing a suit that is too big or too small for you. Men, you need to look sharp and comfortable in suits in all occasions. In conclusion, your suit should fit properly!
According to joe.ie, 90% of men own a suit, but a quarter of these men have never been fitted for one. So they key here is to simply get yourself measured! 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.
7. Too Tight Shirts
Flaunting your muscles through a tight fitting t-shirt is not a great way to charm a lady. 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. Too tight shirts also tend to make a person look like a stuffed sausage.
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
We're not talking about crop tops for women, but shirts that are so short that they end up stretching over a man's belly. 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.
9. White Briefs
If there is a chance that a woman is going to see your underwear, you may not want to be wearing tighty-whiteys. Why? Because the average woman under 35 does not find briefs sexy. Tighty whiteys are often considered dorky and childish because many young children wear them.
Some women don't have any problems with briefs in general. The issue specifically involves white briefs. According to a commenter on reddit.com, "nothing says 'my mom still buys my underwear for me' quite like a man in tighty whiteys." Overall, this type of underwear is simply unattractive. 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.
To women, you will look silly and look like you got dressed in the dark. Wearing clothing pieces that don't go well together will send a message to women that you don't know what you're doing at all.
11. Socks That Don't Match
Even if you don't realize it, socks are very important. The main rule in the fashion industry regarding socks is that the color of your socks should match the color of your pants. For example, black socks with black pants, dark gray socks with charcoal pants, or blue socks with blue jeans. Even though this may seem boring, it will keep you and your male friends looking sharp. Additionally, it socks that match your attire will always be appropriate for business settings.
Many men wear white socks all of the time. But, it is best to wear white socks for sporting events only. Women definitely won't be turned on if they see a carefully groomed man, wearing a sharp black suit and black dress shoes, sporting 2 inches of white socks. In addition, dress shoes require dress socks, not athletic socks!
12. Faded clothes
Faded clothing will make you look like you've been wearing those particular clothes for 30 years. Faded clothing comes off as a shapeless, baggy disappointment to women. Wearing faded clothes that look ancient are also not very fashionable.
Faded clothes that look old will make you look old as well. Do yourself a favor and get rid of any clothing articles that are extremely faded and have been in your closet for decades. Go to the store and buy yourself some vibrant colored clothes that will bring out your youth to women.
13. Wearing Exercise Shoes
While wearing exercise shoes is fine for when you are exercising, it is not acceptable or attractive to women if you are wearing them for anything other than exercising. Guys, how would you react if you saw a woman wearing sport appearing shoes with her business suit?
Women will definitely be looking at you if you are walking around wearing exercise shoes anywhere other than the gym. Overall, no guy should wear exercise shoes with chinos, jeans, or dress pants.
14. Deep V-Necks
Wearing deep v-necks is one of the most common men's style mistakes, according to menprovement.com. Although there are various types of v-neck shirts, we are talking about the type of v-neck that goes half way down the chest.
Wearing a deep v-neck will make it appear that you are vain in the eyes of women. Why? Because it appears like you are wearing such an unattractive shirt for the sole purpose of showing off your body. Women also would rather not see your chest hair.
15. Tucked-in Shirts
Men, do not tuck in your shirt unless you are in a business setting and wearing a collared shirt. If you are wearing a dress shirt that has long tails, then you should absolutely tuck it in. However, never in any circumstance tuck in a t-shirt, Hawaiian shirt, or jersey.
Wearing a tucked-in t-shirt will often make you come across to women as a nerd. Even though some subcultures love it, don't tuck in your t-shirt unless you are trying to make a deliberate style statement. Hawaiian shirts and any other loud-print shirts cannot be tucked in as well no matter what.

Lauren Williams: 4 Foot Long Legs
Lauren Williams has the longest-known legs in the United States, with her eye-catching limbs measuring an incredible 49 inches from hip to heel. Lauren's height and long-legged genes can be attributed to her family as her father, mother and twin sisters are all 6ft or taller.
She has US size 11 feet (UK size 10), and revealed that she can find it tricky to buy clothes that fit. When modelling, single Lauren - who has worked on campaigns for global brands such as Nike - does everything from sports and fitness to high fashion and swimwear.

Pixee Fox: Dangerously Small Waist
Swedish born Pixee Fox had already spent more than $80,000 on plastic surgery attempting to sculpt the perfect hourglass figure. But now she has taken her obsession even further by having 6 of her lower ribs removed - so she can shrink her waist to a record-breaking 14 inches. Pixee, from Sweden, said: "People often come up to me and say, "don't take this the wrong way, but you look like a cartoon" - but for me that's a compliment, that's what I want to achieve.
With 6 of her lower ribs removed, Pixee's lower internal organs, including the liver, have lost some of their natural protection - but she isn't worried. She said: "Before if I was in a car crash I would normally break my ribs. If that happened now I'm probably going to break my spleen instead.

Bethany Hamilton: One Armed Pro Surfer
Bethany Meilani Hamilton-Dirks is an American professional surfer who survived a 2003 shark attack in which her left arm was bitten off, but ultimately returned to-and was victorious in-professional surfing. On October 31, 2003 Hamilton, aged 13 at the time, went for a morning surf along Tunnels Beach, Kauai, with best friend Alana Blanchard, Alana's father, Holt, and brother Byron. Around 7:30 a.m., with numerous turtles in the area, she was lying on her surfboard with her left arm dangling in the water, when a 14-foot tiger shark attacked her, severing her left arm just below the shoulder.
Despite the trauma of the incident, Hamilton was determined to return to surfing. Three weeks after the incident, she returned to her board. Initially, she adopted a custom-made board that was longer and slightly thicker than standard and had a handle for her right arm, making it easier to paddle, and she learned to kick more to make up for the loss of her left arm. After teaching herself to surf with one arm, on January 10, 2004, she entered a major competition. She now uses standard competitive performance short-boards. The broken surfboard that Hamilton was riding during the attack is on display at the California Surf Museum
Mayra Hills: World's Largest Fake Breasts
Mayra Hills - also known as Beshine - measures at 59-28-36 and says she's the proud owner of the world's largest fake breasts. And it's not hard to believe her claim to fame, considering each of her breasts have 10,000 cc of saline implants and weigh 20 pounds a piece! As you can imagine, it's difficult for Beshine, who wears a size 32Z bra, to find clothes that fit, so the German-born woman has a lot of her items custom-made.
But bra shopping isn't her only woe. She can no longer tie her own shoes and has run into trouble when she's knocked things over with her chest - but it appears she's satisfied with her body, troubles and all. "Some people maybe think the sheer size of my t-ts bring too many handicaps in my everyday life, but hey, having big boob problems is amazing," she wrote on her blog.
Anastasiya Shpagina: Real Life Anime Girl
It's official, this real-life anime trend has gotten completely out of hand. Hardly a day goes by that we don't stumble upon some photos of girls going to any lengths in order to look like real live anime characters. Today's example, Anastasiya Shpagina, an Ukrainian girl who has even taken a Japanese name - Fukkacumi. 19-year-old Anastasiya (Nastya) Shpagina has been called "the new Barbie" by national news outlets, but she later revealed she's striving to become a real-life Japanese anime character, not a doll. She even posted "I am not like a doll, a doll is like me."
Apparently, Nastya has been passionate about makeup even as a young child, always experimenting with it in the mirror. Over time she also developed a thing for Japanese cartoons and it was only a matter of time before she started using her make-up artist skills to transform herself into a real-life anime girl. But just putting on makeup wasn't enough to attain that coveted look, so she decided to lose weight in order to seem more genuine. At 1.58-meters-tall, Anastasiya weighs just 39 kilos and is trying to lose one more in order to look just right.
Chanel Tapper: World's Longest Tongue
The longest female tongue measures 9.75 cm (3.8 in) from the tip to the middle of lip and was achieved by Chanel Tappe on 29 September 2010. Chanel, from Houston, US, shot to fame aged 13 when she was spotted sticking out her monster tongue in a YouTube video. In September Guinness invited Chanel to Los Angeles where they measured her tongue and she narrowly beat two other female contenders to the record.
She said: "I have always been silly and goofy. I love sticking my tongue out at people. I started doing that back in school. I've never had a problem with having a long tongue, it's just fun." Chanel now has set her sights set on Hollywood after finishing her studies. She said: "I'd love to be in a movie. I'm certainly pretty dramatic, so I think I could have the acting gift. "Really, I'd love to meet Adam Sandler, he's my favorite."
Sarah Massey: World's Largest Butt
Sarah Massey would be just another 33-year-old mother-of-two from Chicago - if it weren't for the fact that she also happens to have the world's biggest butt. Though not officially recognized by the prudes at Guinness, Massey's massive 7-foot wide keister requires a pair of 10XL trousers that would comfortably fit all of the Kardashian sisters combined.
Massey insists the condition that resulted in her museum-sized bubble butt is hereditary - "there's nothing I can do about it," she says - but that her love of ice cream certainly contributed to its maintenance. Massey would still like to lose some weight, but says she now has a new-found appreciation for her natural assets, and fervently defends them against anyone who calls them fake. "Some people can't believe one person can have this much butt," she told Barcroft. "Because I've got a relatively small frame on top they say, 'that can't be real.' I carry this weight with me all the time, everywhere I go, it's definitely not fake. Big booties are just in my blood."
Zlata: Extreme Flexibility
Russian-born former gymnast Zlata, 29, posed in leather and lingerie to adopt a series of poses that seem to defy every law of biology. Zlata, who now lives in Germany, is able to create astounding shapes with her body and is so flexible she can cram herself into a 50cm square box. One of her favorite acts is to bend backwards at a 90 degree angle, so the back half of her hands touch her feet and she can also peer through her own legs from behind.
Zlata's gift of flexibility was discovered when she was four years old and by six she was training as a contortionist at a circus school. She has a rare condition which makes all her tendons extremely pliable, which helps in her profession. The former gymnast now spends most of her day working out and training for shows around the world. In 2011 she set the Guinness World Record for the most beer bottles opened in a minute using only your feet.
Kim Goodman: Eyeball Protrusion
Kim Goodman is a woman who is able to pop her eyes out of her eye sockets by 12 millimeters (0.47 inches). She holds the world record for the farthest eyeball protrusion. She lives in Chicago, Illinois. She discovered her eyeball popping talent one day when she was hit on the head with a hockey mask. Her eyeballs popped out much further than usual and ever since that day she could pop them out on cue, as well as when she yawns.
She has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman. In 2004, Goodman was included by Guinness World Records in their 50th anniversary list of top ten "feats" of all time. Kim originally had the record for being able to extend her eye balls beyond her eye sockets by 10mm. This was matched a few years by a new contender, but when Kim was re-measured she found she could now reach 12mm - breaking her own record and keeping the title.

Supatra Sasuphan: World's Hairiest Girl
Her nicknames may include "wolf girl" and "monkey face". But 11-year-old Thai girl Supatra Sasuphan today insisted that she was after being officially recognised as the world's hairiest girl. Although the schoolgirl from Bangkok has faced merciless teasing at school, Supatra says being given a Guinness World Record for her hair has helped her become extremely popular. "I'm very happy to be in the Guinness World Records! A lot of people have to do a lot to get in," she said. "All I did was answer a few questions and then they gave it to me."
Supatra is one of just 50 known sufferers of Ambras Syndrome - caused by a faulty chromosome - to be documented since the Middle Ages. Before the disease was understood, sufferers were branded "werewolves." She has thick hair growing over her face, ears, arms, legs and back. Even laser treatment has failed to stop the hair growth. But while most sufferers have been shunned, Supatra has gradually been embraced by her community, and became a popular and outgoing child.
Jasmine Tridevil: Woman With 3 Breasts
There's really no other way to put this so we're just going to dive in: Meet Jasmine Tridevil. She has three breasts. Tridevil (no that's not her real name, but that's what she wants to go by) is a 21-year-old licensed massage therapist and die-hard Criss Angel fan from Florida who decided to undergo a shocking and controversial $20,000 surgery to add a third breast to her chest.
Tridevil also stated that she's hoping to bank a reality show from this, and has already put the wheels in motion to make something happen. "I was making really good money [being a licensed massage therapist] but now I'm trying to star in a reality show instead. I don't like that job," she shared, and later added, "My whole dream is to get this show on MTV. I hired a camera crew individually, so I'm the producer of this show right now."
Lyudmila Titchenkova: World's Longest Neck
Lyudmila Titchenkova is a 16-year-old living in the city of Nikolaev, Ukraine. After she turned 10, Lyudmila's parents noticed that their daughter's body began developing at an accelerated growth rate. She was taller and had longer arms than other children her age, but of particular concern was the length of her neck and abnormal curvature of her spine.
As it got to the point where Lyudmila began feeling embarrassed to go out because of her appearance, her parents took her to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder of the connective tissue that can affect many parts of the body, most often the heart, blood vessels, bones, joints and eyes. In Lyudmila's case, the disorder affected the connective tissue in her spine, causing it to curve at an angle of 30 degrees. This seems to be a rather uncommon symptom of the disorder, which usually affect people's arms, legs and fingers. After undergoing corrective surgery and extensive rehabilitation to straighten her spine, Lyudmila can now live normally and says she wants to study for her future without letting herself be affected by her disorder.
Abigail and Brittany Hensel: Girl With Two Heads
Abigail Loraine "Abby" Hensel and Brittany Lee Hensel (born March 7, 1990) are dicephalic parapagus twins, meaning that they are conjoined twins, each of whom has a separate head, but whose bodies are joined. They are highly symmetric for conjoined twins, giving the appearance of having just a single body without marked variation from normal proportion. In fact, several vital organs are doubled up; each twin has a separate heart, stomach, spine, lungs, and spinal cord.
In conversation, the twins are clearly distinct persons, with distinct likes and dislikes. Their preferences in food, clothing color, etc., differ. Some of their clothes are altered by their seamstress so that they have two separate necklines in order to emphasize their individuality. They will usually have separate meals, but sometimes will share a single meal for the sake of convenience (e.g. each taking a bite of the same hamburger). Abby is better at mathematics, and Brittany is better at writing. For tasks such as responding to email, they type and respond as one, anticipating each other's feelings with little verbal communication between them.
Natasha Veruschka: Sword Swallower
Natasha Veruschka has the world record for most swords swallowed simultaneously by a female. She swallowed 13 swords, each at least 38.1 cm (15 in) long, at the 3rd Annual Sideshow Gathering and Sword Swallowers Convention in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, USA, on 3 September 2004. Natasha was born in India of white russian and british heritage. She has lived, studied, and performed her art around the world and also speaks several different languages.
Natasha now lives in New York City. She is an amazing performer who uses many different types of swords in her act or as she likes to say "Swords On The Menu." The swords on the menu are - "The Red devil" 29 inches long, "The Big Sword" 27 1/2 inches long, "The Bradshaw Sword" 25 inches long, "The Sai Weapons" two 24 inch long eight-sided weapons of steel. Natasha trained with a "Sai Master" in order to use them in her act. Also on the menu is the unbelieveable "Sword Sandwich" where she swallows 13-22 inch long swords simultaneously.
