As we head into the middle of January, it’s probably safe to assume that most of us have let down our New Year’s Resolution at this point. For example, my goal was to finally get in shape and now my Planet Fitness membership will never see the light of day ever again. However, like many other men out there, another resolution of mine was to become more fashionable. Nothing quite grabs attention than a man who knows how to dress. You know what they say: the clothes make the man. However, there are some current trends out there that should definitely stay behind with the 2010s. Here are some men’s fashion trends that you should definitely drop in 2020.
It was a hot street wear staple in 2019 and we can expect it to stay in 2020. Young men all over America are rocking crossbody bags due to the hype from companies such as Gucci and Supreme. Personally, I believe that the crossbody bag has always been a bit of an eyesore in men’s fashion. It just kind of looks like you’re rocking a purse. If that’s your thing, more power to you, but if you’re a guy looking to impress, you might wanna leave this trend behind.
Seriously, who thought these were a good idea? As a man, spray on jeans just seem a bit impractical. I mean, we have some valuable assets down there and the last thing we need is to wear a pair of denim or pants that constrict the life out of your lower body. Don’t get me wrong, skinny or slim fit denim will most likely be in style for years and years to come, but if I can see a guy’s quad muscles through his jeans, it’s probably best you leave it in your closet for the year 2020.
These super long, almost dress-like shirts became widely popular thanks to streetwear icons like Kanye West. Not only does it look impractical due to its length, but it also completely throws off the proportions of the body. Any guy that rocks this looks like he has a really long torso with really small legs. Kanye West can pull this off on account of being Kanye West, but guys like me and you? We should probably ditch this trend for the brand new decade.
First off… take a quick guess as to how much those suckers cost. That’s right, they cost north of 800 bucks! And if you cringed at that number, then you’re probably wondering why in the world this is such a popular trend. Brands like Gucci and Balenciaga are currently going through this phase of selling the UGLIEST shoes that already beat up and charging an outrageous price for it. I guess if you’re so bougie that you need to have people wear out your clothes for you, this might be your thing. As for the rest of us, let’s just keep this one in the 2010s.
Let’s be honest… I mean… I’m all for fashion being equal in the sense that if women can wear fuzzy socks, why can’t men? However, with the male romper, it just looks so uncomfortable and tight to the point where it just begs the question: Why was this ever a thing in the first place? If you’re going to do it, at least there’s a zipper fly. The LAST thing I wanna see is a dude stripping down at the urinal whenever nature calls.
