What Girls Want Guys to Wear

Written by Alexandra, Monday, April 13th, 2009 in Fashion, The Style Guide
006Finding something or someone to wholly base your idea of fashion off of isn’t the wisest thing you could do. However, many fashionable people are very useful in inspiring or aiding us in finding ideas of things to wear or how to wear something. Street fashion, though wonderful, isn’t always the easiest place to find small slices of style; that’s where celebrities and the internet come in. Here, we give you some ideas of what girls love seeing guys wear, as modeled by the stars.

Fitted Tees & Jeans

Fitted Tees & Jeans
Picture 1 of 10

PICTURED: Robert Pattinson (actor)
WHY IT’S HOT: This outfit is super easy yet so, so attractive. It’s comfortable, has lots of room for creativity/personalization, and works as a great base for many great outfits, all while showing off your figure.
KEY POINTS: The cut of the shirt and the jeans is crucial; v-necks are flattering for guys with built chests, but ease up on how deep they go especially if you have chest hair. For jeans, the most overall flattering fit has a modest rise, isn’t too tight or too baggy, and looks a little more generic rather than decorated (think rips, tears, paint, graphics, etc). Simple is better.
BEST FOR: Casual/anytime.

    I’ll reiterate my objection to using famous people as examples, for simple reasons.

    3: Scarves
    The feminine idea comes from large, thing scarves, which are barely more than accessories, as opposed to thick, cold weather scarves.

    4: Preppy
    You’d have to be pretty damn bold to pull preppy stuff all the bloody time, I find they become bland quite quickly, and generally tend to make one look like an idiot, so I wouldn’t really wear that kind of stuff.

    I can’t take “what girls want guys to wear” seriously. It’d be just as credible as “what guys want girls to wear”.

    And that was my other point which I couldn’t formulate. The whole format reeks of “we’re going to use your despair to make you do whatever we girls want you to do”, and no matter the outfit, women don’t want doormats, do they?

    To be honest, this is not the only article in which the presentation is unpleasant but perhaps it emphasizes it.
    Look at the front page, it gives me the impression we’re all wannabe alpha males, so thristy for women we read “in your face” articles about what we have to wear to get laid, how to make out etc.
    A simple, perhaps more appealling idea would be “What men can wear that women like”, it’s longer a title, but I doubt we lack spare time. I enjoy reading a well written article that is not all about bullet lists, hot or not, etc.
    …and I can’t find a proper way to end my argument.

    wtf, i don’t understand where all this criticism is coming from. i found this article to reveal a very candid view of what girls like on guys.

  5. Philip says:

    David Beckham looks damn awesome.

  6. Anonymous says:

    I think the article should have been called “How to give yourself male/manly sex appeal” or something along those lines. I don’t see how wearing something makes you a doormat, and it’s not like anyone’s refitting their entire wardrobe for this stuff. I think the point this article is trying to make is that you might want to use the ten points as an example as to how to attract women, but that might not necessarily be your issue. Certainly Christmas sweaters and wolf shirts aren’t going to flatter you, so something should, and thus, this article.

  7. Yum22Yum23 says:

    I am not against the article, but the formulation.
    I completely understand the trendy appeal, and some of these do look good, but saying “GIRLS want YOU to wear THAT” is unenticing.
    And this view of things also explains why I was talking of doormats.

  8. User says:

    So, in the first slide you talk about keeping the jeans simple, and then you show Beckham with tattered rips and tears & Ronaldo with patterns (both of which you particularly mentioned to avoid). You clearly didn’t put very much thought in this, did you?

    fashion isn’t so much a science. there are a few goals, but really anything goes. just depends on the person.
