For the men on here...

What type of clothing attracts you to a woman?

What kind of clothing do you find unattractive?

Please don't say the less the better. And don't give me that spiel about "it's not the clothing, it's how you wear it." I understand all of that, but what types of clothing do YOU specifically find flattering.

I've heard that men hate UGGS and baby doll tops. What else would you add to that list? Are there any specific colors that you're attracted to?

I think I come accross as confident, but sometimes a little cold or standoffish. It's really because I'm shy, but people don't get that impression.

Are there enough guys on here to give you enough opinions, I wonder?

My unsolicited two cents, since I'm not a guy: Anytime I go shopping with a guy they'll suggest outfits that they think would look great on me and it's always stuff I wouldn't be caught dead in. At the same time, they usually like the way I dress, so my conclusion is most of them don't have a good sense of style for women.

If you want to make over your wardrobe why not go on a couple of window shopping expeditions, one with a girlfriend whose taste you admire, and one with a guy. Let them pick out outfits for you to try on. If you don't like how they look in the dressing room (I never do, the lighting sucks), bring them home to try on. Only do this if you can return the stuff for a full refund, though. Another idea, in smaller boutique type stores, is to let a sales person help you to pick stuff out. They might be able to help you come out of your fashion comfort zone.

I know the show What Not to Wear has become somewhat hackneyed, but the basic fashion advice about the right cuts for varied figure types and colors is pretty solid advice, IMO. I was in an unflattering fashion rut a few years back and this show inspired me to lean more towards more stuff that showed off my figure. Stuff that actually fit, in other words. No drapey, oversized, body hiding stuff.

Good luck, and have fun with your wardrobe makeover!

ETA: I just reread your post and I realize I went off on a bit of tangent here, but maybe it'll help you anyway. Who care's if guys don't like babydolls or UGGs? They seem to be in style and if YOU like them, wear them.

Clothes that makes her look sleek, sophisticated and confident. A nice pair of well tailored, fitted pants and top. Nice jackets, skirts, dresses(especially sundresses in the summer) and of course nice shoes.

What kind of clothing do you find unattractive?
The typical casual clothes. Nothing wrong with them once in a while, but some women act like jeans, sweatshirt and flip flops are acceptable for all occasions. I get it, they're comfortable. Also, crocs, wedged heels, high waisted mom jeans, those potato sack tops that make you look pregnant and floral prints because they look like a shower curtain.
Empire-waisted shirts aren't necessarily bad. If you're busty, they're pretty much the only way to let people know that you have a waist. And even if you're not busty, you just have to make sure that the shirt is form-fitting or, if you're overweight, that it skims. The empire waistline is fine. The problem is billowing cloth.

From what I've observed men like to be able to see a figure - nice waist or hips. After that comes the face & personality.

This is talking about strangers though. I think men who see you everyday at school or work get time to appreciate other qualities about you. Turn that personality on.

Fasion wise, deflect attention from any physical flaws that you have. For example, if you have thick legs to wear skirts or shorts above the knee or A line so the legs appear a little leaner and longer. There are other tips but I don't know all of them.

my SO doesnt understand leggings and babydoll/empire waist shirts. nor does he care for them very much.
some of his friends think capris are stupid as well as jeans tucked into boots.
My boyfriend said he would answer your question.

The type of clothing he finds attractive is simply stuff that fits. Things that are too tight can cause a girl to look lumpy and bulging in areas. Clothes that are too baggy just make you look like you don't care. That being said, he apparently finds me sexy in empire tops, just not ones that are hugely billowing.

He doesn't understand skinny jeans, UGGs, Crocs, and abstract patterns.

From my experience, clothing doesn't attract men to women. It can entice them if it's provocative, but it can be a big turnoff, too, depending on the man. I used to dress a little too scantily in my late teens and early 20's. Looking back on it, I grimace at some of the things I wore. It did attract men, but I think men pay a lot more attention to a woman's face than anything. I don't have a killer body (small boobs, thin frame, short), and it doesn't seem to make much difference if I'm wearing sweats or a nice sweater. Makeup or no makeup. I think men that are going to be attracted to me are going to be attracted to me, and those that aren't, aren't. I dress very casually - at the most khakis and an oxford shirt. I like clothing that suits my figure without being tight at all... it's a fine line especially since I hate spending money on clothes and I'm not careful about washing it, so it often ends up shrinking.
I hear many men complain about billowy empire waists.

When I see the men at work comment on a woman's appearance, she's usually in snug, but not obscenely tight fitting, jeans, a flattering top, or a flattering skirt. A big part of it is also how she carries herself. Good posture goes a long way.

I prefer more tailored items for myself, and I hate boxy shirts. I love a-line skirts and wrap tops and tailored jackets. These are just things that suit my figure. Empire tops look like crap on me, and so do spaghetti straps.

Don't get mad at me about it. She's the one who asked for men only!

It seems like men like fitted clothes that flatter your figure(no big baby doll or maxi dresses I think) and dresses and skirts. They generally prefer heels to flats.
