Men’s Fashion Trends 2019: Expectation vs. Reality

We are in an age where fashion is not just about girls or their forte. Men’s fashion is very formulaic as there are a few things which you will find in the wardrobe of most of the guys, such as some types of denim, plain tees, and a handful of button-downs. However, this year, men’s fashion trends are all about experimenting with energetic elements to bring liveliness to every guy’s wardrobe. Trust me; they are amazing!

So, if you have been thinking of changing up your look, then men’s fashion trends in 2019 can be a big hit for you. However, there are chances that you may end up looking awkwardly different; but that does not mean that you should not give it a go!

Expectations VS Reality of men’s fashion trends

We are not trying to discourage you from upping your styling game. Actually, it is quite the opposite. We want you to know what people are looking for and what their expectations are; however, the reality can be a bit different. So, this blog will make you understand what you are getting yourself into.

These are a few expectations and reality comparisons that can happen to you while trying the most hyped trends of the year. So, a safe option for you is to ask someone who have a better understanding about fashion.

Expectation 1- Light-wash denim looks great on everybody.

Reality- They can make you look pale.


Light wash denim may look good on most of the boys. However, it can sometimes make you look a bit pale. Not just that, most of the people avoid these kinds of denim in winters as people love wearing more radiant colors in the dull season. So, to wear light wash denim, you have to either layer it with other clothes or experiment with rich tones such as mustard, orange, or burgundy.

Expectation 2- Vintage is the best choice for watches.

Reality- They may not suit your personality.

This is one of the most hyped men’s fashion trends of 2019. Most of the men are going crazy over vintage watches and spending thousands of bucks on them. However, you first have to understand that a watch reflects your personality. A guy with a funky style would prefer a casual watch, not a vintage one. Vintage watches look best on someone with a more professional look. 

Expectation 3- Not need of wallets anymore, we have sling bags!

Reality- A slit bag does not match every outfit.wallets56

There are times when a sling bag may not suit your outfit. For example, a sling bag may make you look good if you have a funky outfit; however, the same bag will look weird if you are wearing something formal. So, it is very important to be very careful while choosing a sling bag with your outfit.

Expectation 4- Bare chest with a suit can make you look hot.

Reality- Do not wear a suit on bare chest until it compliments your body.

It is a harsh reality that most of the men should stay away from this trend. Instead of making you look good, it may make you look awful if you show your family pack in place of the six-packs. Not just that, wearing a suit jacket on a bare chest is not hygienic and can damage the quality of the cloth. 

These are a few of the men’s fashion trends 2019 that can be a bit different from in reality your expectation. But, you can still try it and who knows, you may look fabulous by trying these trends!
