Boys and men: you should ditch your navy-blue bed sheets.
On TikTok, navy blue sheets have been a popular dating/ hook-up faux pas to mock for nearly a year now. The hashtag #navysheets has over 700,000 views.
Comedian Mary Beth Barone recently noted on The Tonight Show, “This is purely qualitative, but I have found that there is a common thread among men who have navy sheets. Much like joggers, oversized watches, and vaping, navy sheets can often be seen as an indicator of f***boy tendencies.”
It’s also noted that navy blue sheets are great at hiding stains, and thus they’re associated with young men or boys…
Barone says that even if you are an adult male who washes his sheets the recommended amount, the fact that navy sheets have a reputation for being the best color for hiding stains means having them on your bed isn’t really a great look.
