The ARIA Awards Red Carpet Is Proof That Australian Men Struggle With "Fashion"

It's called fashion, you drongo.

If fashion is an expression then this expression is kind of shit.

We’re all for expressing yourself through style but when it comes to awards nights, Australian men simply pale in comparison to our distant cousins from the U.S and the U.K in terms of ‘fashion’.

Is this outfit thought out? Is there a strict dress code? Is there no dress code? Will I look like a walking peanut in this?

All of these are legitimate questions which need to be addressed before gracing any red carpet event. It’s also an ideal that Aussie men seemingly struggle with every single time as more priority is given to outdoing one another in front of cameras than just looking good.

Aussie men, a bit of understatement and prudent preparation in the wardrobe goes a long way. And it will certainly do you a lot better in the long run than just being featured in a box on page 220 of some tabloid’s social pages.
