It is not that men have not outgrown the need for stylish clothing; rather, it is just that men’s fashion trends are less obvious and therefore easy to overlook. The changing taste in clothes may be due to the fact that women have more choices nowadays and most of the popular fashion trends are aimed towards women. As such, there are more items that are targeted towards women than those towards men. This does not mean, however, that men have no options when it comes to fashion. Men can still look fashionable while sporting a sports jersey or walking down the street in a pair of trendy jeans. They just have to take a little more time and find clothing that fits their personality.
One of the reasons why men’s fashion trends are not as apparent is because men do not like to admit that they are fashion conscious. Men assume that if they follow the latest trends in men’s clothing, then women will think that they are superficial and shallow. On the contrary, men believe that by standing out in a crowd and looking good, they will be able to impress women and get the approval they deserve. Men are also afraid that if they are not able to keep up with current fashion trends, then they will appear old and not presentable to women. For this reason, men often stick to wearing sports jerseys or simple tee shirts and avoid attending fashion shows or being seen in other men’s clothing.
Another reason why men’s fashion is not as widely spread as women is that men are afraid that if they do start to care about what they wear, they will look strange. There are many men who feel as though they should let go of the need to dress neatly and appropriately for social situations in favor of living a carefree life. Even though this may be the case for some men, most men still put great importance on their appearance and would prefer not to look worn out and unkempt. This is one reason why they are still able to sport casual clothing like khakis and T-shirts rather than formal attire. Even when these clothes don’t offer the attention getting features of a new suit or pants set, they are much more comfortable than traditional clothing and allow the individual to move freely without feeling immodest.
