7 Spring Trends That Men Hate but You Should Rock Anyway ...

By Cassandra

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!

Table of contents:

  1. Sometimes, crop tops look really uncomfortable
  2. Apparently, leggings are only for the gym
  3. Wedge sneakers are not very functional
  4. Say goodbye to dark, smokey eyeliner
  5. Ladies, those sexy shades you love so much are a no go
  6. High waisted shorts belong in the 80s
  7. Most of the men think floppy hats are the worst

1 Sometimes, Crop Tops Look Really Uncomfortable

Even though crop tops are all of the rage, they're apparently not a hit with everyone. Jeremy, 24, stressed that "I don't really get what's the purpose behind those cut off shirts. They just look uncomfortable to me."

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

Here's where things get a little interesting. When I asked Kyle, 30, what trend he wasn't a fan of, he immediately answered "Leggings! Or yoga pants. Just no. If you're not going to the gym, don't wear them."

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

When it comes to edgy wedge sneakers, James, 21, is not a fan. "They seem really counterproductive. Why would you want a heel in your sneakers? Plus, they look like they hurt."

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

Sean, 18, says thats he can do without eyeliner. "Sometimes, it looks mysterious. But more often than not, It's too much. I like the au naturale look."

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

I find it really interesting that a few of the guys I questioned stood by this one. Jared, 19, said "Why are you hiding your face? I want to see you, not guess what you're feeling."

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

Some guys just don't understand the power of a good pair of shorts. Adam, 22, stresses that even though he thinks high waisted shorts are totally sexy, they don't really "look all that comfortable, to be honest."

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?
