As a style maven, I couldn't have been more surprised when I recently overheard a few guys discussing fashion trends that they saw as total deal breakers. Needless to say, my interest was piqued. As an experiment, I asked seven guys about the "biggest style mistakes" they think women make. More than anything, this list will prove why you shouldn't care what other people think and just wear whatever you want!
1 Sometimes, Crop Tops Look Really Uncomfortable
I couldn't disagree more with this statement. As much as I hate to admit it, I sometimes spend hours trying to find the perfect outfit, regardless of where I'm going. That's what makes the crop top look so perfect. It's ridiculously simple to style and gives off a chic (not to mention sexy) vibe. I guess this is one deal breaker I'll definitely be sleeping on.
2 Apparently, Leggings Are Only for the Gym
I don't care what anyone says. If I find a pair of leggings or yoga pants that I feel comfortable both working out in and relaxing in my house, I'm wearing them. End of story! I'll never understand why leggings have gotten such a bad rep.
3 Wedge Sneakers Are NOT Very Functional
I'm definitely giving this one some major side eye. Don't let their looks fool you. Wedge sneakers are super comfortable and functional. I can't be the only one who thinks wedges are hot!
4 Say Goodbye to Dark, Smokey Eyeliner
I'm sorry but I have to disagree with this one! Smokey eye will always be en vogue. The crazy thing is that women who don't wear makeup get just as much flak for it as women who do.
5 Ladies, Those Sexy Shades You Love so Much Are a No Go
Hold it right there, mister. Not only are sunglasses a unisex style trend, they also serve their purpose. My case in point? If I'm not into strangers on the street who stare at my face, these babies are going on!
6 High Waisted Shorts Belong in the 80s
Finally, there's one thing that we can agree on. High waisted shorts ARE sexy. They're also ridiculously flattering for all body types. If you find the right pair, it'll take your style level from beginner to expert.
7 Most of the Men Think Floppy Hats Are the Worst
I respectfully disagree. This response definitely surprised me. What could be so bad about a hat that is both stylish and functional? I don't know about you but that sounds like a good thing to me!
At the end of the day, you're basically damned if you do, and damned if you don't. The point of my experiment was to show that when it comes to fashion, you have two options. You can either listen to other people's opinions and let them dictate your life OR you can throw all of that out of the window and just do you girl! Did any of your favorite trends make the cut?
