    Don't you have any American pride?

    Or are you a stinky, non-showering European?


    Neither. But between the choices I was given, I'll take the latter.

    Does anyone know examples like thread, but in reverse? "How would you (girls) like a guy to dress" from a women's fashion forum? I am very, very curious.



    I've heard this statement before and there are a couple of things I think about it. I apologize for length, but these are my favorite subjects.

    Firstly, I read disbelief in your statement, as if guys don't know what turns them on, and the reason you would be incredulous is that both men and women (hetero in this example) are often trained to dress for their OWN sex, not the opposite sex. A men's fashion forum populated by men. A women's fashion forum populated by women.

    Secondly, even when women dress for men (and vice versa), we often get it wrong. One easy example of this confusion lies in the photos that men and women post for the opposite sex in online dating profiles. Women have a tendency to post several of their "going out" bar dresses with make up and hair done to the hilt (maybe nails, too) and I can assure you that nothing appears more fucking undate-able than a women done to the teeth. Guys, same problem - gelmets and shirtless photos, both completely undate-able situations.

    Thirdly, while it would differ for every guy, to answer the question what exactly is so attractive about a sundress... I think it's the legs. The dress tends to be light and airy, allowing a lot of movement and sneak peaks of the legs from different angles. This destroys swimsuits and shorts. They cannot provide the same level of shifting tease at all. A sundress is also very naturally slimming, no? Emphasis on hips, shoulders, and lower legs, hidden belly.

    Footwear is also emphasized at the end of your stems and depending on your watcher's fetish the results can be unbearable. I'll cut it short on the graphicness, but a sun dress also implies a level of sexual availability coupled with innocent casualness unmatched by any other outfit.

    Man, that couldn't have been said any better. You nailed it, all of it. All I can think to add is that the sundress is about the most feminine article of clothing there is, but in a really natural way instead of an artificial girly-girl way. A woman in a sundress is just appealing in every way, basically.

    Also, why are people saying that post is creepy? Is it just the fetish comment in the last paragraph? Outside of that, the whole post can be boiled down to "what men find attractive in women is not the same as what women think is attractive in women." That's just true. I've always noticed it, and always found it kind of charming. Women are often most appealing when they're not trying to be "sexy," but instead are just being natural and normal and un-self-conscious. And yeah, everything I hear from women indicates it works in both directions, though it doesn't necessarily manifest itself the same way.

    BAM. Nailed it with this post. I totally, 100% agree and couldn't possibly agree more if I tried.

    I don't know about you guys but I always had a thing for girls in a blazer. Makes them look really sharp and sophisticated.

    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.


    Generally, what I'd like to actually see on a girl is:

    1) Clothing that hides her flaws. For example...if the girl has spindly legs, then sun dresses are a bad idea. If she's fat, she shouldn't wear tight jeans either.
    2) Feminine clothing. Why do some women try so hard to be men? They should use what they have, which is ample and in some cases, pure kryptonite to 90% of all men. That being said, it's HOT to see women in guy-inspired clothes now and then.
    3) Well fitted, comfortable clothes...which can run counter to existing fashion trends. It's hilarious what women will wear so that they can run with the crowd. Stop it please...men honestly don't care. I'm not going to chatup a girl just because she has 6" Manolo stillettos.
    4) Colors. Really...black is BORING. No man alive can get away with wearing a hot pink tuxedo but a woman easily pulls it off in the female equivalent.
    5) A smile. Stop looking so emo, bored, hostile, princessy...NOT attractive.

    Specifically though, on the right girl, of course...I love

    1) Lace blouses/trim
    2) Mules
    3) Well worn tightly fitted denim
    4) Vintage pearls
    5) Hot lipstick
    6) Baby pink cashmere sweaters
    7) Chokers
