Trends in fashion are like water on earth, Both work according to their hydrologic cycle. Every year, some trends make a buzz in the fashion world. Fashion Trends help you walk along with the world, so you must follow trends but not all of them. You should only follow the best and avoid the worst fashion trends otherwise they can take down your style game.
A classic man always prefers timeless style trends and this is the reason why you should stay away from the worst fashion trends.
However, some things included in this list can be your favorite and it is completely fine because fashion is extremely subjective and this is the beauty of it.
If you like something and you are confident about that then just wear it.
We just want to help you become your best version and in this order, let’s know about the worst fashion trends that you should avoid in 2021.
The Worst Fashion Trends Of 2021
1. Baggy Denim –
Oversized denim jeans do not look good on anyone but still coming back in the trend because people who do not have much knowledge about fashion think this is cool.
They see their beloved models or celebrities wearing such baggy jeans and start copying them but even those celebrities or models do not wear such pants in their everyday life, they do it just for photoshoots.
You should avoid baggy jeans and if you are a short guy then this is a big “No-No” for you because oversized jeans make your legs look more short and skinny.
Although denim jeans are super versatile and can be paired with different things that is why this is a must-have for every man but you should only buy jeans that fit you well.
Baggy denim jeans used to be a remarkable trend in the 90s but this is 2021 and you should not wear loose clothing.
2. Tie Dye –
Tie-dye is not a bad thing, it is a fun thing to do.
But it has reached its peak last year, it was like tie-dye everywhere and it’s going to be fade away this year.
Tie dye is cool, it gives you vintage vibes but it is not something you should wear often.
Too many dyes can just spoil your look, you don’t want to look like hippy-dippy.
Also, it is one of those things that are very hard to pull off.
Therefore, If you want to look dapper and well-dressed then you should give priority to neutral colors like black, gray, white, blue, brown, etc.
Nevertheless, If you are among those men who are very experimental with their style then you can go for it but I do not recommend tie-dye at all.
3. Big & Loud Logos –
Gentleman, If you have money, you do not have to show off.
Clothes with big and loud logos do not look good, they are too flashy and tacky.
It is one of those trends that have been popular recently, although people used to wear them before the trend has become popular.
You have to understand that you are not an advertising board, a Gucci or Balenciaga logo can not improve your style.
So, avoid wearing outfits with big & loud logos and prefer basic and simple clothing, you will look way more attractive and stylish.
These logos are too much, so stay away from them and believe in “less is more”.
4. Dad Socks –
Dad socks have gradually come in the trend for the last few years and this year it is going to be a red hot trend.
But this is not going to last for a long time and as an alpha male, this is not even an option for you.
However, If you are a guy who loves to wear dad socks then go for it, more power to you.
These socks came in fashion when the combination of chunky sneakers and dad socks went viral.
This is not an evergreen trend and that’s why you should avoid dad socks.
If you want a better replacement for dad socks then you can go for No-Show socks, they are elegant and very comfortable.
You can wear them with casual and formal both types of shoes.
5. Short Shorts –
Super short shorts just blew up all of a sudden at the starting of 2020 and now they don’t look as good.
Yes, short shorts are more comfortable but they can spoil your style.
Kids can wear them but they do not look good on men.
So stay away from short shorts.
But this does not mean that you should wear baggy shorts which are below your knees – No!
You should wear shorts which are 2-3 inches above your knees and perfectly fit for you.
Also, prefer basic tones for shorts like black, gray, brown, blue, etc.
6. Overly Distressed Denim –
Distressed denim jeans look fantastic, specifically, if you are a teenager then you can wear them all day long but if the denim is overly distressed then I take my words back.
Denim jeans that are overly distressed look just devastating and you should strictly avoid them if you want to look well-dressed.
Why are you purchasing jeans in which parts of the fabric are missing? This may not sound good to your ears but just think about it.
You are spending your valuable money on jeans and you’re getting nothing, jeans that will not protect you from winter, nor will you be able to hide your legs properly and even you will not look good at all.
If you’re buying super ripped jeans then you’re simply burning your money.
So, do not buy and wear overly distressed and light washed denim jeans.
7. Crocs –
This is one of the most popular fashion trends over the years and many people wear crocs.
But you should clearly understand that Crocs are only for children if you wear them you will look childish, not stylish.
However, crocs are very comfortable and airy but many better options are already available for you.
They are more comfortable and also they will make you look more impressive, elegant and fashionable.
8. Flare Pants –
The most prominent trend of the 70s has somehow made a comeback.
Pants that have a bell-like shape at the bottom and that’s why they are also known as bell-bottoms.
Flares are very tough to pull off and if you think you can do that then you’re already a master (you don’t need any fashion guide).
The most difficult task is to find the pair of shoes which look nice with flare pants/jeans.
If you ask me I will not recommend bell-bottoms because they are not made for this year.
So just avoid them and wear more stylish pants like slim fit chinos, denim jeans, trousers, etc.
9. Animal Prints –
2020 was a year full of crazy patterns, tie-dye, animal prints, bright & bold designs, etc.
If you want you can try them out but if you are a person who is all about timeless trends and elegant fashion then you should avoid such loud and flashy prints.
Honestly, animal prints do not look good and I do not recommend you to wear them.
They are extremely hard to pull off, not everyone can wear them and look well-dressed.
Nevertheless, if you want to wear patterns then you should go for some simple patterns & prints like polka dots, blocks, etc but animal prints are too much.
Models and celebrities wear them but it is their job but you do not need to wear such prints.
10. Neon Colors –
I can not understand why people wear neon colors, they look like a disaster.
They are very luminous and when someone wears them they prick in the eyes.
They are super flamboyant and that is why they are also known as fluorescent colors.
A lot of people wear neon colors and they think that they are looking outstanding but they look terrible.
So don’t be a peacock and always wear neutral colors and basic fashion colors like blue, burgundy, light pink, gray, black, brown, white, etc.
11. Bare-Chested Or Shirtless Suits –
The trend of bare-chested suits is being very popular nowadays and it is a symbol that how awful a trend can be.
I do not understand what is the meaning behind this trend, I mean people wear suits so that they can cover their skin well and look more elegant but in the bare-chested suit you are demolishing the whole concept.
Suits are so classy, stylish, and comfortable then why you want to take down your attractiveness with this trend.
However, if you don’t want to wear a dress shirt with a suit then you can wear a plain white crewneck t-shirt.
But bare-chest is not something fashionable at all.
This is not a great trend and that is why you should stay away from such a worst fashion trend.
12. T-shirts With Slogans –
When you have things like Pen and Paper, then you want someone to write on your clothes?
Well, I know this is a popular fashion trend and you want to look fashionable and want to convey your message to the world through fashion.
But this does not mean that you write quotes & slogans on your T-shirts.
Become a little creative and understand the real meaning of fashion, If you want to convey your thoughts through your fashion then reflect them by your color combinations, fabric selection, patterns and prints, accessories, etc.
Then you’ll look like a well-dressed and creative man.
So just say no to such printed t-shirts and use your skill.
13. Shield Sunglasses –
Shield Sunglasses have been in recent fashion trends and people are just crazy for them.
These sunglasses are huge, come in different colors and look quite similar to extreme sports sunglasses.
I don’t recommend such big and colorful sunglasses because they do not suit every face shape.
Shield Sunglasses are difficult to pull off.
They’ll make you look more stylish and good looking.
14. Fireman Jackets –
These jackets are very popular nowadays and specifically among youngsters who are just crazy about them.
These jackets are very similar to real firefighter jackets.
I do not know what people think before buying fireman jackets because this is not something that can be worn in everyday life.
This trend is completely senseless because these jackets look weird.
You do not need to wear something odd if you want to look fashionable.
15. Long Hair –
But man you should understand that everybody’s face shape is not the same and therefore long hair can not look good on every face shape.
Since Lockdown is also a reason behind the long hair trend, so if you can not go for a haircut, then it is a different thing but if you are growing your hair just because everyone is doing this then this is not cool.
First of all, Determine your face shape and then choose a nice hairstyle according to your face shape and then go for a clean and neat haircut.
I’m not saying that long hair is a bad hairstyle but it is not compatible with every face shape.
Trends make fashion interesting and every year some fresh trends bring excitement with them.
But all the trends are not your friend, so before trying anything you must think twice.
You can play with trends but keep in mind that you should stay away from dreadful and worst style trends
So, these were the worst fashion trends of 2021 and I hope you have understood everything well.
