8 Women’s Fashion Trends That Men Hate

There are so many fashion trends that women love to wear and men love to look at. Stiletto heels, little black dresses and skinny jeans are just a few styles men have no problem seeing their girlfriend in. It’s another matter for other styles though.

Here are some top fashion trends that women love but men just don’t.



Peplums are that extra piece of fabric on a shirt, dress, or skirt that cinches in at the waist and ruffles out. Women love how they emphasize the smallest part of their waists and then flow over the belly’s problem areas. However, peplums aren’t the way to garner positive attention from your men folk. Some men think the ruffled peplum looks silly and childish, while others think it look like maternity clothing.

Harem Pants

They are trendy and comfortable. They are baggy around the seat, and the thighs are tight from the knee down, giving the wearer a unique silhouette. Men however don’t like their unconventional shape. At best, guys bemoan the way these pants do nothing for a lady’s rear end, and at worst, they compare this look to a full diaper.



A romper is a perfect day outfit for women. You don’t have to worry about what top should go with what bottoms, as its all one piece! However, the cross between overalls and a dress is just too strange for a lot of dudes. For many of them, the outfit is meant for a baby.

Acrylic Nails

There are so many upsides to getting acrylic nails. Natural nails are brittle and difficult to grow long. Nail polish chips off quickly. And of course, you get acrylic nails in many fun designs and colors. Men don’t really pay attention to women’s nails, but when they do, they are turned off by long, fake nails. Acrylic nails are obviously fake. Guys think they are ridiculous.

Bright Lipstick

Bright, bold colored lipsticks have always been a staple in women’s makeup. They are fun. They make a statement. It’s not the actual look that men hate about bright lipstick, but how it ends up everywhere. It will rub off on your food, rim of the glass, but worst, on your date’s face.

Strapless Tops

Strapless tops are great for the summer. It makes you look a little sexier. But does it always look better? Most men say no. Most ladies need a complete bra (straps included) to keep their bust in place. In a strapless top, men find they look flat or even saggy.

Retro Bikinis

Ever since Taylor Swift wore her red, polka-dot, retro bikini last year, everyone wants one. However, men aren’t so excited to go back to the 40s. Many women like the tummy control a high-waisted bottom offers, men wonder what exactly they are hiding. It only makes them think of granny panties.

High-Waisted Pants

Speaking of high-waisted bottoms, they are back in style as pants, jeans and shorts. Women are pairing these bottoms with crop tops, tucked-in tees and cute cardigans. However, there’s something about these pants that men can’t stand. This look was referred to as a “mom jean” before, and guys cannot forget that label. Plus, men don’t find high waists flattering to a woman’s behind. Don’t expect your dude to be impressed.
