They say that “women are from Venus, and men are from Mars” and probably one of the reasons is the vast perspective they have when it comes to fashion. While women think that fashion “is life”, men’s fashion outlook is amazingly formulaic. Open their closets and you will see mostly washed types of denim, white tees, hoodies, and more button-downs.

Fortunately, the fast-phasing aspects of society somehow recognize the “equality” in fashion, even in a not-so-obvious matter. From the plainness in their fashion statement comes pastel colors, different fabrics, and flowery and other print designs that men are also enjoying nowadays. 

Below are some of the various styles that start to dominate the men’s fashion of this generation. Regardless if you are on the verge of changing your wardrobe, or still looking for trendy stuff for whatever reasons that you have, let this article give you a glimpse to keep you guided. 

White Outfit

No matter what the season is, white stuff such as shirts and even shorts are timeless must-wear for every male species across the globe. Aside from bagging the men’s most preferred style, this is also a cool way to withstand both the heat and coolness of the weather. 

To furtherly enhance this, you can try to mix your cool white shirt with chino shorts and earth-colored sneakers. If you want to make this style look better, top it with some navy overshirt.

Pastel Colors

One thing that should be appreciated from today’s generation is that colors do not matter much to gender when it comes to fashion. Men wearing pastel-colored outfits are not being judged negatively (after all, there is nothing wrong in being “more than” male or female).

n fact, most people start to appreciate that this is good. Despite that pastel colors are not meant for everyone, that doesn’t mean you have to settle on the usual monochromatic shades. All it takes is a bit of experimenting and mix and match! You can even make your own socks out of those lovely colors!

They say that real men wear pink (you can insert other pastel colors if you want), and you can be proudly flaunting it by putting a pink button-down shirt or sweatshirt. This can also be a great saver since it goes well with other wardrobe and style you prefer. 

Vertical Stripes

Vertical striped outfits still dominate and are always well-loved prints also by men, for mostly two reasons. First, it always looks great and can be easily be played with other printed designs. Second, it always has the “magic” of enhancing your appearance by making you look slimmer and taller.

To make the most out of this, choose outfits with stripes in varying width. But if you prefer something elusive, sticking to the classic stripes isn’t a bad idea.

Layered Outfits


Wearing more than one outfit is always observed by men. From a shirt plus jackets or hoodies, it seems that wearing only one top is inconvenient for them. There is nothing wrong with that, however, you have to depend it on the weather since it can be sometimes impractical to do especially with the wrong outfit. 

To still achieve it any time of the year, change those oversized and heavy outer wears int jackets or hoodies that are lightweight plus casual shirts, tees or polos for innerwear. This is easier to remove if you feel hot. Moreover, to maintain the visual element, you can wear your outerwear on your torso, shoulders, or waists. 

Short Shorts

From the usual advice that men’s shorts should be just above the knee, what’s amazing is that that rule changed and people started to accept that even men can wear short shorts too. However, this does not apply to anyone. Men who are gifted with thinner legs can wear this, but for those who are blessed with wider legs, they should definitely stick with the usual or slim-cut shorts.

Fashion and its Impact on the Societal Changes

Let’s end this article in reminding how fashion in this generation brought a huge impact on how most of us see our environment. From being traditional perspectives that are filled with do’s and don’ts, into fresher and more open-minded outlooks, the fashion industry nowadays contributed to we see our society.


Men wearing pastel-colored and printed clothes has been one of the indicators of gender equality since clothing with these styles are now accepted as something that can be worn both by male and female. Moreover, this clothing preference doesn’t measure the strength of men regardless of their gender preference, along with their capability to contribute to their circle and the community. 

As for women, wearing an outfit that is monochromatic colors doesn’t change their femininity, but it somehow provided them more strength and empowerment to become catalysts for positive changes. 

Generally, these broke the traditional gender identities this society formerly faced and become more open to the fact that men and women have their own strengths and weaknesses.


Part of another thing that the society accepted is the fact that “short” doesn’t mean something sensual and flirt, and “long” means conservative and vulnerable. The society is on the process of lessening the idea of maliciousness especially when it comes to fashion statements. 

Nowadays, women and their shorts, ripped jeans, sleeveless tops, and other slightly showy styles are not seen as slutty, rather, as part of modernized fashion taste.

Also, men are sometimes seen as wearing very casual shirts and short shorts (sometimes going out with boxer-like shorts) and they are confident that they are not being defined as gay. Regardless, we all come to see the different and emerging fashion style as another confidence boost. 

These, among other fashion-related aspects that have shaped our society, are living proof that fashion, like change, is constant and temporary in this world.
