Somewhere down the line I realized that women don’t dress for men but rather for women. I think, for the most part, guys don’t really care what we’re wearing as long as we’re there and paying attention to them. They don’t know what high-waisted pants are or that wedged heels are back in for summer, they just know that we wear clothes and we usually look pretty hot wearing them. I’m not saying that they don’t appreciate the effort that we take time out of our day to look nice for a date or a party, but they’re not really analyzing the outfit like women do. Guys say things like, “You look amazing!” Girls say something like, “I love that necklace!” Girls look at the detail, men look at the big picture. (Ah, and it’s true for relationships in general with men!)
While men don’t pay too much attention to our wardrobe, I will say that there a a few things that we can wear (or not wear for that matter) that will make his heart flutter. I have gathered this list from 1) personal experience, 2) magazine articles I’ve been reading since I was 13 and 3) romantic comedies. And while these 9 options are a surefire way to get any guy to drool a little, the most important thing a girl can wear is confidence!
