LOVE IT OR HATE IT???

There are so many trends out there girls love that may raise an eyebrow of confusion for guys. We may get compliments from other stylish chicks, or metro guys on how we have such cool style. Personally I find it most flattering when a girl with awesome style or my hairdresser Eduardo notices my new bag, or nude color wedges.

But I wanted to see what a typical guy thinks about some of these “iffy” trends out there. So here it is, my completely unscientific survey of the loves and hates from the other gender. Quite fascinating, but the guys at Swell were quite in tune with all these trends and had some strong emotional reactions to them.

1. Oversized button up shirts: LOVE IT
2. Boyfriend Jeans: LOVE IT
3. High Waisted denim: LOATHE IT
4. Maxi dresses: LOVE IT, BUT PREFER SHORT SKIRTS
5. One piece swim suit: LOVE IT, BUT PREFER 2 PIECE
6. Top bun hair style: EHH, INDIFFERENT
7. Combat boots: SCARED OF IT

We Love…Romantic Style.

What’s not to love about this trend? This Spring season, romantic style has managed to ‘spike the punch,’ adding an intoxicating edge to everything from dresses to bikinis. Full of lace, gothic trims, and sheer chiffon, this trend adds a polished appeal to classically bohemian silhouettes and 90’s grunge.

Life of the Party
Don’t give us that coy look- we KNOW who spiked the punch. Sequins, leather, velvet and zippers give these looks a glam rock edge- with enough class to be just shy of a partied-out power slide. Pardon me, could you please pass the Grey Poupon?

LITTLE Black Dress
Yes, we did mean to write LITTLE in all caps. Don’t act so naïve – you know why we all love to rock this classic. Spice it up this year with some LBD’s that take on some 80’s edge with lace, exposed zips and puffed sleeves.
