Fashion is meant to be fun and inventive. It is meant to be playful and not taken too seriously. Cultural norms make people afraid to try new things. Men trying things that are considered more “feminine” is one of the newest trends that VALLEY hopes will stick. They are only seen as feminine because of societal norms.
This is a new era for men’s fashion. It is so much more open and acceptable for men to play with trends that were typically not deemed appropriate for them in the past. Painted nails, dresses and makeup are just the beginning. If this trend survives in the fashion industry, boundaries can continue to be pushed. Many celebrities and fashion icons have become the faces of this movement against toxic masculinity in the fashion world.
This recent trend could not be discussed without a Harry Styles picture. He has continued to be a trailblazer in this movement throughout his career. Styles stuns in a dress on the cover of Vogue in 2020.

Tyler the Creator isn’t a stranger to pushing boundaries in general. Painted nails are no exception. Here he is seen in THE FACE magazine with painted nails and a blonde wig.
Cody Fern is a talented actor mostly seen on our favorite scary series “American Horror Story.” He has been known to dabble in strong makeup looks and other bold fashion statements.
It’s important to realize that as society moves in a more progressive and accepting direction that our fashion reflects as such!
