When it comes time to do the gift guides at SMUstyle, everyone shies away from what has become the dreaded boyfriend gift guide.

what not to wear

While we’ve been talking on and on about what to buy this season, we haven’t spent much time discussing what NOT to wear. Not all of these are fashion sins by any means (I’m sure I’ll still rock a Canadian Tuxedo at least once) but here are some things that are feeling stale. I will admit, some of these trends are worse than others…I’m looking at you combat boots.  Continue Reading
