I know some things are better left unsaid, but I don’t think I can take it anymore. Some of the ‘trends’ or perhaps fashion faux pas that some of our men are wearing have got to die. It’s not just poor fashion choices, but there are major issues when it comes to some men’s general upkeep. Now that the weather is warm, I spend a lot more time outside, and have had the opportunity to observe men and some of the choices that they make. Just out of pure annoyance, I thought I’d put together a list of some of my no-nos when it comes to a man’s look.
Ladies, what male trends and looks do you wish would die?
I Can See Your Underwear!
The phrase, “if you got it flaunt it” doesn’t work for everyone. For the woman who wants to show off her figure, wearing a hip hugging skirt will do just that. For the man who wants to show off his behind, wearing baggy jeans that expose his Hanes tighty-whitey underpants does not exude sexiness. There are two problems with this. One, I should never be able to tell the brand and make of your undergarments. Two, no one wants to see the crack of your behind. The truth is, fitted pants are in. Men, embrace it.
I know some of you may be asking yourselves, “men still wear extra EXTRA long t-shirts?” The answer to that is an unfortunate yes. Now, I am not saying there is anything wrong with a man wearing a shirt that is a size or two larger than his size. Let’s be honest, some men can’t get away with the extra tight fitted shirts. If there are no muscles and cuts to highlight, then there is no need to draw negative attention. However, for the men who are buying t-shirts four and five sizes larger than necessary, please stop. Your t-shirt has now turned into a dress. All you need is a belt, and you’re ready to go.
Overexposed Chest Hair
Its summertime, both men and women are shedding their clothes for a lighter and breezier look and feel. Fellas, if you are going to wear v-necks and low cut shirts, please do yourself a favor and cut off the excess hair on your chest. Most men would be appalled if women wore bikinis with their bushes creeping out of the forest. Men, I don’t want to see your bushy taco meat hairs peeking out from under your shirt. It’s borderline repulsive, and has got to stop.
I get that most men don’t sit around braiding their own hair. However, if you keep your hair braided, be sure to schedule a hair appointment in due time. There is nothing worse than seeing a man with unkempt braids. Bottom line, if you are going to wear braids, have them groomed.
Too Much Cologne
Nothing turns me on more than when a man walks into a room looking and smelling good. A nice cologne or fragrance on a man can work wonders. However, when a man wears too much of a too cheap cologne, the affects are the opposite. Invest in good cologne, and don’t over do it.
Ok, so I could go on forever, but I thought I would only name a few. Ladies, what do you think? What things do men wear and do that you wish they didn’t?
