Men’s fashion is evolving. Most of the time, fashion is equated with women. But gone are the days when fashion was a women-only domain. With the evolution of metrosexuality, men fashion was no longer just wearing good clothes.
With the advent of the avant-garde and haute-couture for men, one can witness some very weird trends too. Let’s find out about some and hope they never come back.
Men Skirts: Men in skirts are nothing new. Scottish men have been wearing kilts since ages. We see celebrities like Ranveer Singh flaunting these skirts with great gusto and taking men fashion to a whole new level. Can it evolve into something like women wearing jeans? We don’t think so! We have had enough, to be honest!
Super-Skinny Jeans & Muscle Tees: This particular trend was popularized and stereotyped as belonging to the Delhi-Haryana Boys’ Club. Paired with tight tees, the sleeves would stop at the bulging biceps, showing off the gym-body.
Transparent/ Lacey Vests: There’s something cringe-worthy about a man showing his nipples in public through a see-through vest or tee.
Boot-Cut Jeans: The love-affair with boot-cut jeans should be officially over and laid to rest.
Leather Pants: Women might look oh-so-hot in leather pants, but it’s a fashion no-no for men. Much like Ross from Friends, whose pants got stuck in his girlfriend’s bathroom, the only way for them is downwards.
Socks with Sandals: One of the weirdest trends was wearing socks with sandals, especially if the guy was wearing shorts or 3/4 ths. Many IT-type guys would flaunt them at their workplaces too.
Harem Pants: Many women swear by harem pants to feel the most comfortable. But its presence on the men’s fashion stage is a boo-boo. Many A-listers have tried pulling off that look on red-carpet events. No joke!
Coat Over Nothing: Again, this is the domain of many celebs. If showing off rippling 6-pack abs is the ultimate way to assert sexiness, there are better ways to do so. Seriously.
There are many fads that appear from time to time. But these fashion trends took a whole generation by storm. Like everything else, these too came with a shelf-life. Sooner the people get over them the better!
