Resident Guy Tackles Women’s Fashion

Resident Guy is HCHI’s very first guy/girl column that gives the male side on female aspects of life. This week, our Resident Guy tackles women’s fashion and has some different views from the female staff! Take note ladies. 

  • High-waisted shorts/pants:

RG: On the right girl, high-waisted shorts are sexy. Too many times I’ve seen women attempt to pull off this look when it clearly isn’t working. Leave it to the hipsters ladies!


HCHI: High-waisted shorts and pants are the easiest way to hide a belly full from dinner or the extra side-fat we’ve all come to despise. Thus being said, high-waisted pants/shorts are amazing and a necessary staple of every female wardrobe because they can be dressed up or worn casually. 

  • Crop tops:

RG: We live in a place that demands minimal clothing. For this reason, I advocate and appreciate crop tops. Even if the weather doesn’t require their usage, crop tops are always a crowd pleaser.


HCHI: Crop tops are super comfortable and always cute, unfortunately, they don’t work on all body types. Know your body type, ladies! If you’re an hour glass, rectangle, or pear-shaped frame, DO it. DO NOT wear crop tops if you’re apple-shaped. 

  • Flash tattoos:

RG: Again, this is an acquired taste for me. If you’re a tattooed girl with the accompanied style, then it works. One here, one there doesn’t.


HCHI: Flash tats are the cutest trend on the market right now, and if you haven’t dropped some cash for these, then you’re doing it wrong. 

  • Kimonos:

RG: Isn’t it too hot for such attire? Kimonos are definitely classy; I like the look on any woman.


HCHI: These can be worn with essentially any outfit: biknis, dresses, shorts, pants, nude…you name it, and a kimono will adorn it. 

  • Cheeky bikini bottoms:

RG: I’ll gladly speak for the men of UH as a whole on this one… we love what we see.  


HCHI: Cheeky bikini bottoms are WAY better than full coverage because they create an illusion of bootay, even when you are lacking one. Full coverage bikini bottoms kind of look like diapers. 

  • Dresses w/ sneakers:

RG: Please don’t do it. Confronted with such opposites only increases the time I spend judging your appearance. Are you going to a formal event and just looking for comfort? Are you unaware of the inconsistency you’re presenting? Sandals are a much better option.


HCHI: With the right accessories and pieces added to the outfit, sneakers with dresses can work. Obviously don’t wear a couture-esque gown with Chuck Taylor’s, but a simple black dress with black Vans can do wonders.


  • Wide brimmed hat:

RG: I’ve seen women wearing these country club style hats a lot over the past year. I like the look.


HCHI: These hats are perfect for the consistently sunny days in Hawaii. Try not to overdo the brim size, though. 

  • Flower crowns:

RG: This one surprised me. Flower crowns should probably stay where they belong, and I’m not sure where that is.

HCHI: These work with the boho look so many women at UH seem to love.

  • Bindi jewels:

RG: This seems like a culture inspired fashion trend which is awesome! I wouldn’t have recommended it to anyone but after some extensive google images research I’ve concluded that if Selena Gomez does it, you can too.

HCHI: Absolutely offensive. Don’t do it. Don’t wear Indian headresses to Coachella either. 


  • Rompers:

RG: Rompers look great for the most part, but at times they can look tired and almost resemble sweats. My advice would be to stick to the more form fitting kind.

HCHI: Rompers are super cute and work for all body types since the style cinches in the waistline and creates an illusional hour-glass shape for everyone! Plus, these can be tranformed from day to night in a second with a change of shoes and accessories.
