As a stylist, I’m well-versed in all things menswear, including trends. While it’s great that more men than ever are trying new things with their wardrobes there are some trends that women just aren’t into.
Know that there is a difference between style (timeless, versatile) and trends (fleeting, extreme) and that a good essential wardrobe is not driven by trends. Here are our picks for 6 men’s fashion trends that women hate!
6 Men’s Fashion Trends That Women Hate
Overly distressed clothing – Speaking of denim, super distressed jeans with a ton of holes in them just isn’t a trend that looks good on men (especially when they’re skin tight too). Stick with dark to medium washes with no or very limited distressing.
Margiela split toe boots – A very hard item to pull off, just keep it simple, these are too fashion forward for most men. Stick to versatile, essential shoes.
Over accessorizing – A ton of stacked bracelets, a huge lapel flower, all these things just add up to way too much going on. Keep it to simple, minimal items and no fewer than one, maybe two at a time.
Large logos or graphics – My stance on them is well-documented and most women will agree, those overly loud, aggressive logos just aren’t attractive.
Dad sneakers – These bulky sneakers are really trendy now and just don’t look good on most body types nor are they versatile enough for different outfits. Go with timeless and classic white or black sneakers.
