Valentine’s Day Men’s Fashion: 9 Things Men Wear That Are Attractive To Women
I know what you’re thinking: different women have different tastes when it comes to men’s fashion, so there’s no way we can generalize them/.
Yes, some women like it formal, others love it casual and laid back; some women prefer a clean and classy getup, others get turned on by rugged, masculine look; and some women get attracted to something sporty and urban streetwear kind of vibe, while others find leathery, rockstar look sexy.
But while women have different preferences when it comes to men’s fashion, there are certain areas of overlap among these contrasting views. In other words, the irresistible elements all women can agree to be utterly attractive.
It’s almost Valentine’s Day. If you still haven’t thought of the best outfit to wear on your date, these 9 clothing pieces are sure to knock her off her feet.
1. Rolled-up sleeves
Whether it’s a dress shirt for work or a casual cashmere sweater, rolled up sleeves never fail to make you 10000x hotter in your woman’s eyes.
Perhaps it’s the fact your muscular and hairy forearms make you look more masculine, or maybe women love it when you’re in your relaxed mode. Regardless, it’s safe to say that exposed forearms are sexy.
Bonus: if you’re wearing a dress shirt or any work-appropriate menswear, try to loosen up a bit by unbuttoning the first two holes.
2. A nice watch
Every man needs a good, classic watch. Not only do they make your wrist sexy- watches also imply that you’re a man of culture and you value time, which women love. Women also like men who pay attention to details.
Make sure to pick a watch that compliments your outfit. When in doubt, go for the ones with a timeless, minimalist face and classic leather strap.
3. Pink menswear clothing
When it comes to the “color of attraction”, we cannot deny that the color red takes the lead. But if you’re looking for a softer, equally romantic hue, go for pink.
Believe it or not, women love men who wear pink menswear. The color has an appeal that goes beyond these socially accepted views on masculinity and men’s fashion – it’s also associated with positive emotions, like good vibes and energy.
When wearing pink, stick to pastels, which look flattering on anyone.
4. A manly fragrance
Love at first sight? More like, love at first sniff. A lady’s sense of smell is pretty sensitive so it’s not surprising that fragrance plays a vital role in attracting women. Wear fragrance the right way using the following rules:
- Don’t overdo it. Super strong fragrance can retract, not attract, anyone.
- Spray on skin, not on your clothes or menswear. Apply on dry skin after the shower.
- Spray strategically. The recommended areas to apply fragrance include the lower jaw, neck, shoulder, chest, inner elbows, forearm, and wrist.
5. Soft, cashmere sweater
Sweaters made of cashmere, a lightweight kind of wool, are both functional and fashionable.
The secret to attracting women lies in the texture. Let’s just say that a cashmere sweater makes you warmer and more huggable. The texture adds a lot of softness to your style and it draws women to touch it.
Whether it’s a tee or a sweater, v-necks never fail to make you look leaner and more muscular. Thanks to the power of the V shape. You can wear a plain black or white V-neck and still look polished and well-dressed. Just make sure not to go too low.
7. Well-fitted pair of pants
Neither baggy nor skin-tight skinny jeans look flattering. Whether it’s a pair of chinos or denim jeans, make sure to nail the fit.
8. A polished, stylish footwear
“If eyes are the windows to your soul, that makes shoes the windows to your style”, says Antonio Centeno of RealMenRealStyle.
A woman can interpret a lot of things about you just by looking at your footwear. First and most important men’s fashion rule: don’t show up in flimsy, torn, and stained shoes. Doing so implies that you don’t take care of yourself.
If you’re trying to impress someone with your style, go for Oxfords, Monk Straps, Italian moccasins, and more.
9. Your significant other’s favorite clothes
Do you always get to see a special spark in her eyes whenever you wear that pink v-neck sweater? How about that rolled-up floral dress shirt of yours? Well if you’re in a solid relationship and are planning to impress one woman throughout your lifetime, the best fashion guru is her.
No need to buy a red suit or try so hard to look like Leonardo DiCaprio on The Wolf of Wall Street. You just need to wear something that’ll make your date swoon, whether it’s a girl you’re dating for a few weeks now or your girlfriend of 5 years. If you must break men’s fashion rules, do so.
