There are certain trends guys just hate, and we simply have no idea why, because to us, they rock. Trends in girl world exceed all expectations. However, we must recognize that fashion and trends are often for girls, just to impress other girls. Here are a few fashion trends that girls and guys just don’t see eye to eye on.
Girls love a good topknot, and why shouldn’t they? They’re trendy AF. I’m kind of sick of this whole “guys like your hair down” nonsense, especially since I am a firm believer in the topknot. The first time my ex-boyfriend saw my hair in a topknot bun, he shrieked, “What is this?” To his disgust, I replied in the only way I knew how, by sporting my hair in that very fashion all too often. Always say yes to the topknot.
Girls love showing off their midriff, but that’s not to say that guys don’t enjoy the view either. It is, however, to say that gentleman do not appreciate the ways in which ladies style said crop tops. To be trendy, girls often pair a crop top with high-waisted pants. Guys become utterly confused at this conundrum. I’m sure they cry to themselves as they stare and question as to why you must cover up your flat abs with weird high-wasted MC Hammer pants. To that, we respond with: it’s trendy, deal with it.
The boyfriend jean: the jean that does not in fact belong to your boyfriend. While these jeans are oh so comfy, guys would rather see you in skinny jeans that cut off your circulation. They question your fashion sense as they beg you to put on tighter jeans that make you look less homeless. Girls, on the other hand, die for a great pair of slouchy boyfriends.
Studs, lots and lots of studs. Girls can’t get enough of them. We wear studs on our jewelry, studs on our shirts, studs down the seam of our pants, even the heels of our shoes. Honestly, guys are just scared of studs because the studs we wear can double as weapons.
Peplum tops are one of the only true slimming solutions. Peplum tops mask your belly imperfections. What could be better? Well, unfortunately for us, according to the men, anything is better. Apparently peplum is code for maternity wear. Awkward since I was trying to hide my food baby, not accentuate it.
If there is one thing I simply cannot live without, it is a good oversized sweater. These knitted beauties are so scrumptious, cozy, and just amazing. So why do guys hate something we literally live in throughout the winter months and any other time we can get away with it? Because they show off absolutely nothing of your physique and make you drown. But, like, sorry. I think I choose a comfy sweater over all else, and my sweaters will always love me back.
Jeffrey Campbell is perhaps the most prominent name in shoe fashion today. Mr. Campbell, do you mind if I call you Jeffrey? Jeffrey creates literal works of art for our feet. His shoes are creative and fashion-forward, chunky and cool. But for some reason, guys absolutely hate the chunky heel look. Why?–because these shoes appear like blocks on your feet, chunky chunky, unwalkable blocks. Guys, clearly, don’t understand fashion and think very simply. Knowing this, they prefer simple stiletto pumps. Yawn.
Guys will always have something to say about our outfits or appearance, so you might as well give them something to talk about and sport something out of the ordinary or that showcases your unique personality. You can’t please everyone, but you sure as hell can repel the men. All hail being trendy and pissing guys off.
