23 Trends Guys Hate (But Women Love) : The Rebuttal

November 22, 2013 6 min read

The Huffington Post posted this article about 23 fashion trends that women love with lovely little quotes from men below them. While I can appreciate and understand wanting to visibly appeal to the opposite sex, it's not every woman's goal when getting dressed in the morning. Here's the list! Peplums peplums "That top you wore last weekend, the black one. Looks like maternity wear." "Peplums... I just don't get it." What's not to get? It can hide any pooch you may have going on, comes in a variety of necklines and sleeve lengths, and the waist line is incredibly slimming. Beanies beanies "I hate how girls wear those knit hats on the top of their heads... it's clearly not even for warmth... and it looks dumb... always very neon-colored." Men of the world; realistically 99% of you could spend 10 seconds on your hair and look presentable. If you're feeling particularly ambitious, maybe you'll pull out that gel/mousse/wax that you're not sure of - slap way too much on - and strut out (thinking) you look like 70's Travolta. Let me paint you a picture: You wake up at 8:30 and need to be out of the house by 9. Your hair is in that weird stage in your wash-cycle where it doesn't like to be fully tied up but is starting to separate and curl in weird patterns near your scalp. Solution: Beanie. Wedge Sneakers wedge sneakers "I hate Isabel Marant sneakers... fuck 'em to hell." Some days are meant for flats that are kinda-girly, kinda-butch and when full-on boots won't cut it, wedge sneakers will. Floppy Hats floppy hats "There's this look I would call 'the bourgeoise bohemian" that involves those floppy felt hats. This look is played out." No. It's not. The end. Open-side shirts open side shirts "Shirts that reveal the sides of their bodies showing their bra... do you know what I mean?" We can spend upwards of $50 on one bra. At least I can. So I'm gonna freaking show it off! Plus, if it's 90+ degrees outside and you can avoid pit stains, wouldn't you? Bright Lipstick lipstick "Really really bright lipstick, because gross you're going to get that on me." "It's like hooker red lipstick." It's been scientifically proven that men are more attracted to the colour red. So.... Heavy Eye Makeup eye makeup "Raccoon eye shadow." "TOO MUCH EYE MAKEUP." When you have the time and desire to do your makeup, it can be like painting a picture. You get to play with so many different colour combinations, sparkly and matte and shimmer and glossy - it's like being a kid again. Are you really going to rob us of reliving our childhood? Bandeau Bikinis bandeau tops "Bikinis without shoulder straps." "Definitely strapless bikinis, they just make your shoulders look like a linebacker's." I've always heard skirts referred to as "easy access". Is this not the top equivalent? Besides, any day you can go braless and avoid tan lines is a good day. Pointy Toes pointy toes "Pointy-toed shoes and boots..." Of all the things you could be concerned about in the world, how pointy a woman's shoes are makes your list..? "Fake" Nails fake nails "I hate fake fingernails." I can mostly agree with this one. Long, manicured nails are 100% better looking, but I still can't help but think of this   High-Waisted Jeans high waist pants "High-waisted mom jeans, especially the blotchy light and dark ones (acid wash?)." High-waisted jeans have the ability to create that "ideal" hour-glass shape...? High-Waisted Shorts high waisted shorts "High-waisted shorts that basically reveal butt cheek. Too much." "Shorts so short that the pockets are visible. Why?" "The return of our moms' high-waisted shorts is the most unattractive recycled trend going on nowadays... It makes the fittest girl look frumpy and the less fit girls look even more unfortunate." See above. High-Waisted Skirts high waist skirt "I think the high-waisted skirt thing should probably be over. It's one of those things where you're trying too hard, it lacks a certain degree of subtlety." Again. See above. And subtlety for what? Trying too hard for what? I usually default to my high-waisted skirts when I'm bloated/running late but still want to look cute. You put that same t-shirt you were going to wear with jeans with a high waisted skirt and you've gone from daytime to nighttime look in 20 seconds (the middle picture is a great example of that). The argument of girls taking too long to get ready is decently valid, but then you knock our cheats? Can't have both. Fold-Over Ankle Boots wedge sneakers "Booties with flaps of fabric folded over on top - it looks like the shoes have foreskins." If your penis looks like that then keep it the hell away from me. Ultra-High Heels clothing guys hate "Guys won't be looking at your shapely physique if your ankles keep buckling and you walk like a toddler with a diaper full of poop and/or a drunk giraffe." "I hate when women wear shoes that they know are uncomfortable, and then they complain all night about how much their feet hurt. I'd much rather a girl wear shoes they can have fun in." "Heels so high they look like they're a clown on stilts -- and have to walk just as slowly and clumsily." If you can't walk in them, you shouldn't be wearing them. Valid. But those super-trendy sky-high Lita shoes? Surprisingly easy to walk in (coming from someone who can often look like that drunk giraffe. I just don't have the balance for heels) Pantsuits pantsuits "Men's business suits...you're a woman, not a man." "So put on a skirt and make me a sandwich".....for real?! I have a TON of cute business/office dresses that I would LOVE to wear. But, my industry (like many) is male dominated. And so I choose to wear pants on almost EVERY occasion for three reasons 1) Appearing lower maintenance can help as a female. You're not worrying about the way you bend over or constantly pulling on your clothing to cover your ass. It simpler, classier and immediately shows that you DO mean business. 2) Not wondering if your boss/coworker/surrounding humans are trying to look up your skirt can drastically reduce the sexual harassment/awkwardness factor 3) Beyonce Drop-Crotch Pants harem pants "Hammer pants. Really, any loose fitting pants that are not either gym clothes, sweats or pajamas." "The first thing that came to mind was those horrible giant crotch-pouch pants that I've only ever seen really 'trendy' girls or Japanese guys wear...No matter who is wearing them, I always picture them naked having enormous, cartoon balls, and so needing those special pants to accommodate their grotesque ailment." If you're picturing strangers with cartoon balls, that sounds more like a personal problem. And by no means do pants need to be tight to be sexy. Not to mention they are SUPER comfortable Hair Bows bows "Giant bows in their hair, after roughly the age of elementary school." "It's clothing that is too young for them." So are t-shirts with comic book characters, but we don't deny you that right. A well-placed hair-bow is incredibly playful and an easy accessory to amp up your outfit. Bangles bangles "A gigantic number of bangles, which just gets super annoying when they're clanging around all the time." It's not your wrist - how is it annoying? Because you can hear it? Is the rest of the world completely silent asides from my deafeningly loud bracelets? I bet you your cell phone will go off within the next hour and then we'll get to find out what your favourite theme song is at full volume. Oversized Sweaters sweaters "Overlarge sweaters -- seriously, get out of the '80s." That left image + thigh-high wool socks and some boots is like my go-to outfit. Oversized sweaters are ridiculously versatile and are not only fashionable but very WARM. I live in a place that regularly reaches -20C....you're damn right I'm gonna buy that sweater. Mullet Dresses mullet "Mullet dresses (called like uneven something or other)... I just don't get it -- where's the f*****g party??? You are covering the back!" You're not invited. That's where. Shows some leg, but keeps it modest. Has the best part of the miniskirt (showing some skin) minus the worst (bending over and showing all the skin). Leggings leggings "I'm not much of a leggings guy either. Once in a while is fine, but as a standard pant option, it's boring and predictable. Florals spice it up a bit but they're also a little gimmicky." Gimmicky? Boring? Predictable? Is this guy sure he knows what leggings are? They can be pretty much any colour/pattern/material imaginable. They go with EVERY possible top and every company in existence has a DIFFERENT type. My personal favorite (and DEFINITELY not boring or predictable) being Dutch Blonde. Shoulder Pads sholder pads "This isn't the '80s." This seems to have been the excuse for at least 5 or 6 of these trends. You're right, it's not the 80's. It's 2015. And shoulder pads can be awesome. All good things in moderation.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.

To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
