13 Trends Men Hate But Women Love

13-trends-carouselIt's a real battle of the sexes when it comes to sartorial choices.

If you didn't already know men are from Mars and women are from Venus, and it shows in our taste in clothes. There are some women who dress for men and others who honestly don't give a sh*t and dress solely for themselves. Yet, regardless of who you hope to appease with your style it's safe to say that there are just some trends men hate but women love.

Flip the pages to begin the showdown.

Colored Lipstick

Many of us can agree men hate lipstick and prefer chapstick (yuck). You kiss them and they squirm like a six year old girl. Wear a dark lip and you're considered goth, opt for red you're a clown.

Pant Suits

Men love dominating in most aspects of life, but in a perfectly tailored suit a woman can steal the show. It's the ultimate power struggle. Just a heads up guys, ladies are bosses too (*sings "Can't be getting mad, but you mad? Can't handle that?").


Over Accessorizing

Whether it's an arm party of Cartier love bracelets, midi and knuckle rings, or ear cuffs we love them and want to wear them all (preferably at once). Men on the other hand find it distracting. They must have thought we were joking when we said diamonds are a girl's best friend.

Drawn/ Tattooed Eyebrows

They say the eyes are the window to your soul, but they've got it wrong, it's the eyebrows. They frame your face and give you an instant lift. While ladies are going to extreme circumstances to make sure they are perfectly groomed, guys could care less.


Kim Kardashian wears peplum


Similar to that tutu you used to rock to ballet class this vintage style is popping up everywhere. Men are surely puzzled as to why each shirt you bought in the last month has 3-D pleated folds, whatever. Little do they know it accentuates the waist and plays up our curves. The more the merrier!

Gladiator Sandals

Known as the Jesus shoe to men, these sandals add edge to your summer essential. Ladies, you deserve to give your feet a break in these comfortable babies dating back to biblical times. Amen!



They might be borrowed from the boys, but we absolutely love brogues. Guys, trust us these flatforms are stylish and most importantly comfortable.



If best selling girl group TLC wore them then you know it was cool. To men, overalls don't equate to sexy but since the 90s its revamped look of a slimmer and more tapered silhouette is way more flattering.


Poetic Justice Braids

Only the Knowles sisters could bring back that throwback summer hairdo we all sported as kids and make it popular today. As women we love them because of their low maintenance and versatility. And men well, men know it's best to keep their mouths shut when it comes to a girl's glory.

False Lashes

Weaves and eyebrows aren't the only false things ladies are experimenting with now. False lashes have been around forever, but the masses are now taking heed.  Apparently, men find them to be abnormal, freaky and way too extreme. They're wondering, "did she wake up like this or is she a transformer?"

Elle Style Awards- Rita Ora


Cyndi Lauper made it popular, Madonna did it in the 80s, and we're sure Betsey Johnson is doing cart wheels in one right now. Tulle is evocative of everything that makes a woman feminine. Guys disregard its dainty nuances and find the netting to be one big poofy mess.


High Waist (Jeans)

Anything high waist is a fashion extreme unless you're a 6'0 runway model with A cups and zero body fat. Whether it's a pant or a pair of shorts, high waist anything is a fashion statement that isn't universally flattering. Guys see high waist garments and run for cover. Beware of the camel toe!

Drop Crotch

Drop Crotch Pants

It definitely takes a confident gal to dress like a boy and still entice them. Guys, don't worry she's not a cross dresser, she's just in tune with her tomboy sartorial senses.

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
