What do you like to see on a girl, clothing/style-wise? I think, women's clothing is such a completely different game than men's that it's really hard, as a man, to think about this. We tend to approach our clothing a bit more practically and calculatingly than a lot of girls do. Of course, there are just girls who are good looking and honestly can look good in anything and we won't care, but I kind of want this topic to be about the clothes and not just "She's cute, so she looks good in anything.", I mean, I really want an emphasis on the clothes (err, well overall style I guess). So I suppose in a roundabout way, this is a thread about women's clothing, not just attractive women in clothing... First off, realistically, pretty much any girl in this thread is an instant yes (have fun browsing). Though, honestly, I think a lot of these girls fall into the "She's so cute she can look good in anything" with a combination of good photography, photoshop, and camera angles. That's not to say that they're not incredibly attractive, but the emphasis is less on the clothes. But like I said, I don't know much about women's clothing, so a certain way they wear it helps to. Idealistically, Emma Watson in Burberry. Honestly. I think whoever works on Burberry's advertising campaigns is doing an excellent job and really captures the spirit of what Burberry is trying to sell (forget for a moment, all the tacky brand-whoring plaid design you see everywhere). Though, the problem I find with this is... I honestly don't know the difference between a girl in a <$100 H&M/Forever21 outfit and a girl in a >$1000 (insert whatever preferred high-end brand you want) outfit. Girl's fashion is infinitely more expansive than guys so money isn't really an excuse for a girl to not be able to find something well fitting, and good looking. Well fitting, good looking women's clothing is available in a wide price range, so much better than men's. I doubt quality is a big factor because many high end women's clothing, IMO, is lacking in that regards, at least in the way that we on SF approach "quality" in expensive clothing. Also, I like this M.A+ model. I'm incredibly intrigued by a girl who can pull of female goth ninja and still look incredibly sexy without looking smutty. Personally, for me, in a(n?) SO, I'd like a girl who just has a definitive sense of style instead of trying to mold herself into various popular brand's images. In a way, I kind of want her to have her distinct "look", instead of just cycling through whatever is fashionable and trendy as most girls do. I like girls who wear dresses in the summer, and layers in the fall. I guess what I'm trying to get at is a girl who truly has a sense of style, whatever that means (even I'm not sure).
