Ever wonder what is on a man’s mind when it comes to what WE wear? Ever wonder what HE prefers?
I know a lot of us wonder what we should wear when going on a date, or running our errands. Not that we dress solely for the other sex, but it doesn’t not cross our minds to look good not only for ourselves but for them. I know I’m guilty of trying to make my “grocery shopping” look appear relatively stylish and especially when I’m heading out on a date, I am even more confused and spastic as I try everything I own on, and then still am unsure.
It’s tough being a fashionista, let’s face it. In reality, getting dressed isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do. We want to feel good, and look good.
Instead of rummaging frantically through our closets and creating a tornado of jeans, tops and dresses, I have some answers to help make our dressing up experience a little easier, at least when it comes to impressing them.
I have created a survey and asked 50 men aged between the ages of 25-55 on what they prefer to see on women, and asked them questions about what they like, and don’t like! Some of the answers were surprising, and some were not. Overall, I think it was an interesting survey and gave me some perspective on how much men notice and what they care about on us!
In RED are the MOST common answers. They were statistically significant.
Here are the questions that were asked!

c) Chic ( Fitted dresses and shirt, pencil skirts with tucked in tops, black slacks with a pretty blouse, high heels, think Victoria Beckham, Kate Beckinsale.)
