"Why are you so dressed up?" For any of you that have decide on doing yourself that favor of putting more effort in to your wardrobe, that question is probably all too familiar. You dress-down, people judge you. You dress up, people judge you. It's hard to escape it. (If you follow that link it leads to Reddit, specifically a community of guys that enjoy dressing up. Those fuckers will judge the hell out of your outfit. The socks? THE SOCKS? Screw you, CollinCrunch.) Dress however and with whatever you feel the most confident and comfortable in. If that's in shorts, a t-shirt, and running shoes, so be it. Bold socks? Nice. You just have to accept/understand what it's culturally appropriate for. (Don't show up to an interview like that...) Honestly, we're very bias towards dressing up (Ape is Dapper, after all), and we'll be right there judging you for not putting effort into your style, but stick to you and we'll respect you more for that.
Now, a lot of people fall victim to fashion and fashion rules. If you're just learning how to pull an outfit together, sure, use rules as guidelines. These "rules" are not the laws of physics, you can break them. Seriously. Find what works for you. Dress for you. Mismatching? Floral? Monochrome? Traditional business-wear? If you're curious, try it. We put our outfits up for inspiration, just in case we can spark something. A lot of people might think they're not appropriate, or stylish. (If that's you, we've got a solution for you...close the window. We're not here for you. Yes, this is a recurring theme, with good reason.) For everyone else, keep scrolling/reading, and you'll find another one of those outfits:
