6 Fashion & Beauty Trends Men Will Never Understand

Showbiz May 25, 2016

While the #KylieJennerLipChallenge had taken over social media a while ago, it left some men scratching their heads in confusion.

Pushing boundaries and making a statement when it comes to clothing and beauty is understandable, but there are some things that make men ask the simple question: why?

Don't get us wrong. Pushing boundaries and thinking outside the box are cool, but there are some trends that should just be left on the runway.

Check out these six fashion and beauty trends that might never be understood.

1. Tiny bags that don't fit anything

Why carry something you can barely fit a phone inside? Where do your cash, card, keys and worldly belongings go?

2. Oversized sunglasses

While this isn't a new trend, it's a celeb favourite for hiding from the paparazzi. Sure, too-big-for-your-face sunglasses hide dark circles, but why would you want to look like an insect?

3. Jeggings

One of the most confusing trends. Are they jeans? Are they leggings? Why?

4. Bags that are way too big

This one's kind of a stretch, but you get the point! Sometimes you'll see women carrying handbags that could double as a carry-on but there's barely anything but a wallet and keys inside. Why not find a happy medium?

5. Eyebrow obsession

Whether they're too thick or overthreaded, women always seem to be stressing over eyebrows — and most men just don't understand! Why pluck them out to fill them in? 

6. 100 different lipsticks and identical shades

Why buy 10 different MAC lipsticks that almost look the same? Is there a need to own as many products as the store?

But at the end of the day, as long as you're comfortable doing your thing, it doesn't matter if men (or anyone) understand your fashion and beauty choices. Keep at it!
