Do you ever wonder what he really thinks about the stuff you wear? Like after you spend hours in front of your mirror trying to find the perfect outfit to impress him, do you wonder if he cares? I’ve found that a lot of the stuff I adore, attempt, or appraise as high fashion – most men just don’t notice.
Though my BF, bless his soul, tries dearly to understand why I’d want to bust my paycheck on the shoe equivalent of a medieval torture chamber, he, in all his Nike wearing glory, just doesn’t get it. [He humors me, but I’m pretty sure he can’t tell a Louboutin from a Payless.] And really, when it comes down to it, don’t we put up with all that “Pain is Beauty” crap to attract guys? Are 5 inch stilettos necessary? Does he even notice?
So for every girl who’s ever wondered, I’ve comprised a panel of real guys willing to share their opinions:
The Boyfriend, Rutgers University – The average fashion-challenged college guy. Though he humors me with his attempts to understand the outfits I throw on, he can be extremely blunt.
Fashion Photographer, The Art Institute of Houston – Super metro. He works with models and clothes all the time so he’ll be more forgiving of some fashions, but he’s especially harsh when it comes to the styles he dislikes.
Premed, NYU – He’s funny and insightful, but he’s ultimately still a guy when it comes to women’s clothing.
Little brother, 12 – Okay so he’s not technically a college guy, but he has his fair share of opinions on what makes sense and what doesn’t. Plus, we all know how honest (read: mean!) kids can be.
Everybody loves LuLu’s. College Candy loves LuLu’s. And now that they’re offering College Candy readers 15% off every purchase, we can’t help but love them more. It seems like nothing can dimish our love. Except, well…… this:
After finding this on LuLu’s usually fashion-forward website, I had to see what my guys thought.
The Boyfriend, Rutgers University – Are you kidding me? What’s that supposed to be? Where’s the crotch? That looks like a diaper, and it doesn’t help that it’s brown.
Photographer, The Art Institute of Houston – She looks like she’s hiding balls. Maybe she’s a he.
Premed, NYU – This is going to sound mean but… ever seen the back of a horse? Like, it’s rear end? LOL!
Little Brother, 12 – Those look like lederhosen, you know, the things with the straps that Scottish people wear.
** Correction: Lederhosen are worn by “Germanic men” and they look something like this:
Yeah, I guess I can see where he’s coming from.
While the Knickers seem pretty comfy (hey, no risk of a yeast infection), I don’t think I could ever do the whole MC Hammer thing. But if you have $53 to blow, you can purchase your own pair at LuLus.com. Don’t forget to use your discount!
What do you think of these Nifty Knickers? Would you wear them? Comment below, and while you’re at it – how do you like our new installment? Any honest guys out there willing to be a part of our panel?
