By Andrew Alpin, 8 April

These are the common mistakes about your appearance that make a bad impression,

1Wearing faded clothes is a big NO!

We all know the magical affect of the LBD, which can make any girl look like a princess, but if it’s an old worn out dress and the fabric is over washed, making the color of your dress far from the perfect black that it was meant to be, it will be disastrous for you. Mind you, this applies to all bold, solid color clothes you have.

2White clothes that aren’t perfectly white

The logic here remains the same as the black dresses. White dresses have to be pristine to have that perfect out of the world look. But if they have a yellowish or grayish tinge, it would make your look messy, especially the stubborn stains left behind by sweets, which are super hard to remove.

Here’s what to do

Well no worries as we have a remedy for that. Slight yellowing can be removed with a mixture of hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, or lemon juice when washing the whites. If it still does not go away its better to discard the garment all together.

3Negligently rolled up sleeves

Rolled up sleeves on a man makes him look youthful, dynamic and downright sexy, only if it’s done properly and not scrunched up giving it the look of an accordion, which would give the impression that you have never worn a buttoned up shirt since you left school. But worry not as we would guide you to do it right.

Here’s what to do

All you need to is to unfasten the sleeve buttons, straighten them and turn the cuffs inside and repeat it. If there is a color difference between cuffs and sleeves make it an Italian sleeve tucks and you are good to roll.

6Too many accessories

Accessory overload alongside bright makeup can mean just one thing-disaster. This mistake can even destroy the look of a well though outfit making it look awkward. If we take the great Coco Chanel’s advice, we must do away with the last accessory which we put on as usually they are the superfluous ones. Who can argue a legend, so we blindly follow her dictum here as well.

7An unkempt beard

A man’s beard works pretty much like a women’s make up, that is to hide the flaws in your appearance. But this is only possible if the facial hair is well groomed and neat, otherwise there is a high chance of you looking like a poor homeless guy, not to mention food getting stuck while eating which is downright repulsive.
