4 Fashion Stereotypes for Men That Are Officially Broken and No Longer Exist

Fashion has no gender. So we argued. 

Even today, Unisex clothing is extremely rare. While women have broadened their sartorial horizons by wearing pantsuits and cargo pants (there's not much men's fashion that women can't or won't wear), men still have to adhere to some gender-based fashion rules. 


While there is still a long way to go until fashion is completely genderless and androgynous, males have broken some fashion rules and gender stereotypes when it comes to style. 


Although a man wearing a flowy skirt, heels, or a sling bag is still rare, some fashion stereotypes that once turned men off are now being embraced by them. 


Here are four fashion stereotypes for men that are long gone and officially broken, for good- 


  1. Pink is a ‘Girly Colour’- 

Back in the day, the men's area of any clothing store looked dull, and their wardrobe consisted of neutral colours like blues, greys, whites, browns, and blacks.


Men, on the other hand, are now more willing to experiment with pink, red, and even neon colours. There are also pink wedding gowns and suits which we've seen celebrities wear.


In any case, the whole "pink is for girls, blue is for boys" thing was a hoax. 


  1. Bling is off limits- 

They only wore a blingy, shiny outfit during their wedding, which was the only blingy, shiny outfit they ever wore.


Bling has now made an appearance on jackets, suits, and almost all men's partywear categories.

 

  1. Florals are not ‘Manly’- 

Ugh! Why do we have to associate a print with a specific gender? The floral print is perfect for summer and beachwear, and it is not gender-specific.


Thankfully, floral shirts and tees have been one of the most popular menswear trends for a few years, and men are totally embracing this season's print. 


  1. Men’s Jewellery- 

Since the Stone Age, men have been wearing jewellery. An Indian man's outfit had always included this. Suddenly, it became a woman's thing, and men who wore chunky gold necklaces were ridiculed.


Men are investing in cool dainty chains, rings, bracelets, and earrings, and it is becoming a thing again.
