Wearing the Wrong Fit
An ill-fitting suit is the very first thing that you must avoid wearing under all circumstances. An oversized or undersized suit will kill your look. It will either make you look like a kid wearing his dad’s suit or make you feel suffocated.
Prevention is better than cure. So it is always better to try on the suit prior and make sure it perfectly fits you. If not, get the fittings done asap or look for another option.The jacket, the trouser, the sleeves, the coat and everything should just fit perfectly fine.

Wearing the Wrong Shoes And Socks

You have to make sure your shoes match the color of your suit jacket. Avoid wearing a square shaped shoes and go for a rounded one. Brown or Black Leather shoes are always the best one’s to wear. Brogues, oxfords or loafers always look complements the suit. You can wear sneakers too but that would purely depend on the type of the event/occasion!
If you think wearing a short socks or funky socks or socks that doesn’t match your suit will go unnoticed. Then, my friend this is one of your biggest misconception. So it is advisable to not make a joke of yourself and avoid such silly mistakes.
Wear proper size socks which will perfectly cover your skin and also match the color of your trouser or pocket square or shirt color.
Wrong Belt Selection
The most common suit mistakes include not matching your belt to your shoes. The belt should match the shoes in terms of color and fabric. If you are wearing brown leather shoes then wear a brown leather belt and if black wear black.Keep these small and simple things in mind and do not complicate things for yourself.
Choosing The Wrong Tie
Another big suit mistake one does is not choosing the right tie. The color and pattern of the tie should complement your shirt and suit.The size of the tie should also be considered.The length of the tie should start from the neck to end towards the waistband of your trousers. Avoid wearing loud and funky ties with your formal suit or to any formal event. Opt for printed ties over plain shirts and vice versa!
Wearing the Wrong Shirt
Again your shirt should be a perfect fit. Not too fit and not too loose.Complement your shirt with your suit. Avoid wearing a vests under the suit. If you wear one make sure it’s the V shaped and not the round one.
Matching Ties and Pocket Squares
The biggest and the most common mistake is wearing the same color of tie and pocket square.Remember,they shouldn’t match but complement each other. Wearing the same color, design or fabric will be a total fashion faux pas so must be avoided in all cases.
Cuffing Your Trousers Or Sleeves
Trousers too long? Sleeves too big? Well then, get them tailored according to your size,shape and height soon.Please do not fold them up as it may look ruin your whole look. And we don’t want that to happen!

Wear less but wear good. Make sure your accessories complement your suit. Don’t overdo and steal attention for wrong reasons.
