The best dressed guy is someone who likes to wear preppy stuff (dress shirt/polo probably 3 days a week) and the cardigan/sweater vest clothes. Distressed (but not offending) slim jeans and the same pair of PF Flyers almost everyday. He's pretty popular with everyone but he's not the type of guy that girls are dying to fuck but a lot of girls like him and recognize him as the best dressed guy at school.
The first part of this is right on the money. It's all about being comfortable in your own skin. If you want to attract shallow, materialistic women, then sure- get rich, work out, and let everybody know it. If you want to attract women of substance, be of substance yourself. Have your own beliefs, develop your own skills, dress the way you want to dress, and do things that you enjoy. These are things that will make you happy. And presumably, in the course of pursuing these things, you'll meet women who have some of the same interests, and will admire the fact that you're in charge of your life.
This doesn't just go for attracting women (or men). If you do what makes you happy, people are going to enjoy being around you, because you're happy. As for how to dress, how to act, what to eat, blah blah blah...do what feels right to you. I strongly believe that if more people followed their own tastes and aesthetic sensibilities that they would end up at many similar conclusions, ultimately. Popular fads and counterculture alternatives govern far too much of our lives.
Whatever your background, race or religion, I think human morality/spirituality comes down to a fairly basic concept - respect yourself, and respect others.
Or in simpler terms - don't be an arsehole
