The Shift in Menswear

Let’s talk about men’s fashion.

There has definitely been a shift lately, and I’ve noticed men’s fashion becoming more expressive and interesting than it used to be.


When I think of men’s fashion in the past, all I think of is khakis or jeans and a t-shirt. While some guys may still dress like this, no shame - wear what makes you comfortable, many have upped their style.

These photos were taken by MUD’s Content Creator, Geraldo Torres who is kindly allowing me to expose him for these photos taken in high school.


Luckily, Geraldo’s style has evolved and is constantly changing.

I think this is partly due to male influencers and celebrities dressing more ‘feminine.’ Some examples are guys wearing pearl necklaces, painting their nails, and wearing rings.

They are small things that used to be somewhat taboo for men to wear, but now they are ways for men to express themselves.


One person in particular that comes to mind is Harry Styles. He wears what he wants and shows that fashion and clothes have no gender.

Having people like Harry Styles dominating the fashion world is important because as a society we idolize celebrities and try to emulate them.

Now, a younger generation of boys will grow up and not be afraid to express themselves through fashion, since it has become more socially acceptable.


I have already seen this on my Instagram and TikTok, with creators such as @max_genther posting outfit and jewelry videos.

I love seeing these kinds of videos on my feed because it shows a shift in menswear that is necessary.


It's refreshing to see guys embracing who they are and wearing what makes them happy, regardless of gender norms and what society tells them to wear.


I think this is important because the shift has helped men feel more comfortable in themselves and fashion has the power to boost their confidence.


If any guy readers have made it this far, wear what you want and try stepping out of your comfort zone!
