Top 10 Things Men Want Women To Stop Wearing

So you think you’re pretty chic and hip rocking the latest fashion trends? Trends like the shift dress, or perhaps the ever popular bandage dress? Think again!

We published a blog post in 2012 titled “Women’s Top Fashion Trend Fails…According to Men” (a two part blog series) which we showed everyday men a series of women’s fashion trends. The reaction was quite epic and well, it was an entertaining interview process! Missed it?

Click here to read “Women’s Top Fashion Trend Fails…According to Men PART 1”.

Click here to read “Women’s Top Fashion Trend Fails…According to Men PART 2”.

Well, it was such a fun blog post to write we thought we’d round up a new set of guys to ask what they thought of certain women’s fashion. Now this post isn’t saying that women dress for men, nor saying they should. It is a a fun and explicit blog post to seek the opinions of males on their conscious thoughts about some women’s fashion trends.

Here is the verdict of the top 10 things men want women to STOP WEARING!

1. Ugg Boots

“Why do women feel the need to wear ugg boots outside? It’s not a public footwear kind of thing, every girl I’ve seen wear it looks cheap, dirty and just plain not hot!” – James, 26, Civil Engineer

“A woman who wears ugg boots outside has no class, well at least, she’s showing the world she has no class. Not hot.” – Jamie, 29, Mortgage Specialist


No no to ugg boots

2. Drop Crotch Pants/Harem Pants

“I see some women wear those pants that really isn’t flattering but those pants with the really low crotch does nothing to flatter a woman’s body. I cease to understand why or how a woman can think that is remotely stylish and it makes it god damn impossible to see if she has any junk in that trunk.” – Josh, 28, Finance Broker

“They look plain stupid. I have no idea why they would even be considered a trend in fashion.” – Caleb, 22, Sales Representative 

“God lord, I have nothing to say about this. Horrible to say the least.” – Jason, 29, Business Analyst


Money doesn’t buy you style…hear that Gwen?!?


A trend that most men seem to hate with a passion…harem pants/drop crotch pants

3. Slimming Undergarments/Spanx

“This is like false advertising. You’re presented with something totally appealing and awesome and then later, you’re revealed to something else that you hadn’t anticipated. It’s like online shopping. You go online and see the product you like, it looks so appealing and you can’t wait to get it. When you do, it’s like a disappointment. I can apply this to the Big Mac analogy. I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with wearing this but it’s like…misleading! A woman should just embrace her curves. If she has imperfections, wear something that is more flattering. Well I guess, this thing [Spanx] makes the woman more appealing in the dress but come on, maybe just not wear a dress that is so tight?” – Simon, 27, IT Technician

“Are you saying that’s not all to Beyonce’s junk in her trunk?!?!?!” – Vince, 25, Accountant

“Woman should just be happy with their curves and slight imperfections. We, men, don’t notice half the things you’re overly concerned about with your body. We think it’s beautiful and you should embrace your womanly shape.” – Kurt, 28, Investment Banker


Celebs…they are only human after all!

4. Ultra Chunky Platform Wedges/Heels

“Why would you want to make your feet look so much more bigger and unflattering in shoes like that?” – Jerome, 26, Mechanic

“Whenever I see shoes like these, all I can hear is CLOMP, CLOMP, CLOMP!! Not sexy.” – Vin, 24, Teacher


5. Kitten Heels

“They look kind of weird. It’s like you can’t decide between wearing flats or heels so you go for something in between. Heels are hot on a woman but when I see a woman wear this, it reminds me of an old lady trying to be stylish.” – Baz, 29, Business Development Manager


Flat or heel? Men aren’t digging the midi heel

6. High Waisted Shorts

“These shorts elongate a girl’s butt and I can’t tell if she has a cute butt or not because the shorts just deforms the shape of the butt. Stick to normal shorts ladies.” – David, 26, Civil Engineer

“I don’t know why girls love these high waist shorts. Sometimes I see girls wear them and the shorts are pulled so high up their butt cheeks are visible. Now is this a trend that we’re all supposed to be loving and think it is stylish? Maybe because I’m a guy, but I don’t see the appeal in that, might as well just wear your undies. Oh, and back to the high waist thing, women want to have cute perky butts, so why would you go out of your way to make it look flatter and less than flattering in these shorts?” – Jimmy, 27, Personal Trainer


Girls love high waisted shorts, the guys…not so much

7. Cheap Hair Extensions

“Trashy!” – Lincoln, 25, Drafter

“Looks terrible.” – Steve, 25, Software Developer

“I thought women took more pride in their hair and makeup than this?” – Tony, 26, Medical Student


With all that money, you’d think Ms Spears would have some decent hair extensions!


Britney offends again


And again…

8. Too Much Makeup

Us women love the smokey eye makeup look. Men…not so much. They much prefer a woman showing her natural beauty and if wearing makeup, keep it minimal. A clean and sheer base, such as a tinted moisturizer or BB cream, dusted with a bit of powder to keep the shine at bay. A few coats of mascara, a bit of blush on the cheeks for that sexy glow and a pink/nude lip.


Ahh, Katie Price aka Jordan’s trademark look


Easy on the eye makeup Katie!


Women love the smoky eye look…men think this is too much.

“Kim’s makeup looks nice here but it still looks like too much makeup. She looks like she’s wearing a lot of foundation.” – Russell, 26, Investment Advisor


Women think this makeup look and style is hot and even though it is tame compared to the other makeup photos, men still think it’s a bit too much.

9. Onesies

“I seriously don’t get this trend. I don’t know how it is even a trend.” – Paolo, 23, Graduate Engineer


Onesie….jumpsuit…men aren’t fans of this trend

Cheryl Cole onesie leopard print

Cheryl’s curves…hidden underneath this onesie

10. Leopard Print

“Reminds me of cheap street walkers.” – Jamie, 30, Journalist

“I never understood the animal print thing. Are you trying to look like you’re wearing an animal?” – Colin, 26, Advertising Executive


Leopard print…

Sarah Harding leopard print trousers

Men don’t see the appeal of leopard prints

The Photoshop Diet: What’s Real And What’s Not

We never realized being a supermodel with a flawless figure is so hard!

Doutzen Kroes spills the beans on how she feels guilty for her own perfect figure makes girls feel uncomfortable and self conscious about their own bodies. Hrmm…what a tough life.


The hard life. Doutzen Kroes

She tells in an interview with Page Six “Sometimes it makes me feel guilty that I am now in this profession that makes certain girls insecure. I wake up sometimes like, this is not what I look like in the magazine. Who is this visitor in the bathroom?”


It’s hard looking this hot all the time. Really.

It’s no secret that models and celebrities in showbiz are under a lot of pressure to look nothing less of perfect but when they fall short of that expectation and standard, there’s the good old airbrushing tactic. While we know the fashion and entertainment industry portrays women to be of a certain nature and while we realize some of these expectations and body images are unrealistic and exaggerated, we still feel pressurized to look a certain way.

Below we want to share with you the images portrayed and shown in the media are of pure alterations and enhancement by digital means. Yes, some are more models and celebrities with already pretty amazing bodies but even then, they still go through minor enhancements. It’s a sad thing that these media portrayals result in women to becoming insecure about their body images but it is about being a healthy weight for your body, comfortable in your own skin and realizing these images are doctored with the intention to make monetary gains.


Britney Spears

After Britney’s downward spiral with her public meltdown, it seems it’s been hard for her to get her body back on track. This photo here clearly highlights the photo-shop worked down on Britney’s body for a magazine cover.

Britney’s recent comeback sees her looking better than before but even videography filters and editing was not ruled out. The image below was a leaked image from Britney’s most recent single release, Work B!tch. Britney is sporting a much tighter and toned tummy in the touched up video edit and also slimmer thighs.

Britney Spears Live

This picture here shows Britney Spears at one of her live concerts in a midriff bearing top. It’s a far cry from the abs she has for magazine shoots, album covers and promo photo materials as below for Shape magazine.


Britney Spears for Shape Magazine 2013.


Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba looks pretty darn good as she does but she’s not exempt from having her waist tweeked to a smaller waist size and also slimmer thighs.


Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey is photo-shopped and airbrushed  for the perfect hourglass, feminine sexy shape. Perfect curves given by digital enhancements.

Kate Hudson

No chest? No worries! Photoshop will give you a natural and any size breasts you desire. Kate Hudson seen here on the left in her natural form with a small A cup chest and on the right is a retouched image of her breasts to a large cup size for the promo photo of her movie “Fool’s Gold.”


Victoria Beckham

No butt? No problems! Photoshop will give you that full and perky butt that is lusted after. Victoria Beckham is particularly known for her behind yet she sported a very full and voluptuous butt in her perfume campaign with David Beckham. Ahh, the magic of enhancements for body parts to increase or decrease.


Jennifer Aniston

While most of us would kill for Jen’s yoga body, this tummy isn’t quite good enough for the standards of magazines where it appears they have smoothed out the “extra” tummy bits.


Jennifer Aniston

Yes, Jen does look pretty darn good and while she’s perfectly fine au naturel as seen by her sunbathing on the beaches and hotel pools, that bit of retouching is needed to make her body picture perfect.


Jennifer Lopez

Promo shot of Jennifer Lopez to promote her album. Tanned, bronzed, sexy and….tight abs.



Yes, J.Lo does have a bangin’ hot body with all her curves and impressive set of abs. Bear in mind that many of the professional shots are specifically shot from certain angles to best capture the body and features of the model or celebrity. Lighting and makeup also play a big role as with the final editing touches to the photo which we are exposed to and at times seemingly, impossible to obtain. In this particular picture of J.Lo, the angle of the photo is very flattering to the abs. Leaned back position which flattens the tummy and shows great definition. Fret not….


Jennifer Lopez Live

Ahhh…yes, there are days when those abs of Ms Lopez aren’t out to play. Compare this photo to those of the magazines and promotional shots, these abs pictured are a far cry from the flat, toned and fab abs on display.


Ms Lopez

Refreshing photo. This is the kind of body that you would most likely see on the beach. Not perfect but beautiful as an untouched and natural way.

At the end of all this, there is no real quick or easy way to maintain that bikini body without the dedication and commitment to a healthy lifestyle which is a combination of nutrition and exercise. If these photos are anything to go by, we’d call it a “photoshop diet” because well, the models and celebrities are in their best shape thanks to digital help. Other than that, they have body hang ups just like the rest of us mere women. Despite having the luxury of have personal chefs and trainers to get them in shape, sometimes it takes more than just external help to achieve the ultimate body goal, yourself.

Take care of your body and love it inside and out!
