10 Trends Men Hate

A recent survey conducted by MSN has confirmed what we really already knew - the average bloke just doesn't get fashion. The top 10 items they hate to see us in are:

  1. Ugg Boots

  2. Harem Pants

  3. Headbands

  4. Leggings

  5. Oversized Sunglasses

  6. Gladiator Sandals

  7. Tuxedos

  8. Dungarees

  9. Jumpsuits

  10. Anything with Fringing

OK, harem pants and dungarees are difficult looks to pull off, Ugg boots are, erm, ugly, but this list pretty much covers the average wardrobe.

So, if all the above are ruled out, what do men like girls to wear? According to another survey conducted at maxi dresses, one-shoulder numbers, A-line skirts and skinny jeans are in favour - not as bad as I feared! Alexa Chung, Cheryl Cole and Alexandra Burke are considered the most stylish ladies, but men are scared off by Rihanna's more directional look.

I say wear whatever you want. If you feel good in what you are wearing, chances are you'll be looking good too. When out shopping with a friend, I was horrified that she wouldn't buy a top she loved because she thought her boyfriend wouldn't like it. Like it or not, clothes express who we are, so you shouldn't try to change solely to please someone else. But seeing as the boys have had their say, it's only fair that the girls get theirs. Personally, there are plenty of things guys wear I'd love to banish to Room 101:

Low slung jeans exposing boxer shorts (it defies the laws of gravity that they stay up at all!)

Crude slogan t-shirts ('I'd do me' - I wouldn't)

Jogging bottoms (when no physical activity is intended beyond lifting a pint glass)

Wife-beater vests...

...I could go on.

If only more men dressed like Chuck Bass.
