I came accross another interesting survey, this time it entailed women’s garments, which men truly despise. I couldn’t help but laugh, while reading the list, because some of the things are really bizarre, and it would be better, if we would avoid. I am aware of the fact that male fantasies include lots of garments that aren’t exactly comfortable to wear or are practical for everyday (from stockings to extremely high heels and skinny pants), but I can understand their point with the following pieces, and perhaps you’ll relate to the list as well.
Ballet flats. especially the ones with a round tip. I know they’re very comfortable, but men have always seemed to disslike them. I’m not sure why, perhaps they associate them with slippers or actual ballet shoes, but regardless of that, I don’t know a single guy that thinks they’re cute. Women find them comfortable, that’s for sure, and yet they can make us look like wadding ducks, which is admittedly not the most attractive look.
Moccasins. Because they make us seem like old ladies, even when we’re 20. It’s the shape, the soft material, which makes them lose shape. Well, I don’t like them on men either, if I may add. I much prefer sneakers.
High heels and a bad stride. High heels demand practice, undoubtedly, which is why it definitely doesn’t seem elegant, when a woman looks like she’s about to fall over. Which only means you have to practice, or opt for a reasonable height, to prevent making a fool of yourself.
Platform soles. Especially the thick ones that look like elephant feet, because they aren’t appropriate for any occasion, not even the most forgotten club or pole dancing. They just aren’t.
Uggs. I know they’re warm and comfortable, but men dislike them, there’s no doubt about it.
Birkenstocks. They may be ok for work in the garden, but not appropriate for public. Birkenstock sandals were quite fashionable for a while, even with socks, which was truly a sight to forget. But women seem to have taken them for their own … Well, there are many flat sandals and slide-ons that look lovely, so there’s no reason to wear sandals that are meant as home slippers or beachwear. I suppose it’s a matter of personal taste.
Fur. Too furry, demanding, and often ridiculously expensive. It’s the huge furry pieces, which are fashionable and enable you to be spotted from miles away. I opt for faux-fur, even though I know, men equally don’t approve. But I still take the risk.
Knee-highs. This is a sore subject, because they are often a must … But, let’s be honest, a woman wearing skin-tone knee-highs simply isn’t a sight we want to look at. So you can dare to wear them, when we’re absolutely sure, he’s not going to see us.
Hairclip. Perfectly suitable to hold your hair up in the shower, but otherwise so plastic and crude, it’s not exactly suitable for a date or workplace.
Oversized T-shirts. Because they make us look like a sack of potatoes, which is just too bad. No visible shape or figure, everything is covered up, and it looks like the early 80’s. And oversized T-shirts didn’t even look good then.
Floor length skirts. They’re too long. Perhaps a pair of heels would satisfy their taste, but they are a challenge to wear with flats. Although, that is a point of debate, because Boho style is in and this type of skirt is a key ingredient for a beautiful look. Still, men hate them.
An overkill of prints. Men get too confused, especially when we turn into a moving vision of our grandmother’s living room. They don’t understand extremes, so they prefer either a more subdued look or something more elegant and sexy.
