Free and friendly doesn't mean good. "Stylish" today often means squeezing into clothes, and too much of what I've seen looks contrived.

Especially when paired with a beard.


I personally trust myself and don't seek fashion advice from anyone. If someone were to give it to me, I'd probably listen (after getting over expected annoyance). That happened once some years ago, and the obnoxious woman had some legitimate points. I had slacked off and wasn't aware enough of how I came across. Most people aren't.

Many reasons.

Your question is purely from a sexually attractive point of view, yes we all want to feel attractive for either our SOs or the opposite sex but most will still want to look good, smart etc regardless and ask for opinions

Physically attractive is a good choice. Think you?

So let me ask this then. As it does not take much walking around in populated areas where I work to see it.
Is that why significant percent of females, after they are married, start competing to look as dull and almost drab, as possible? As you can safely play "married or not" game here, hospital and medical buildings I work at, by just that criteria.

Eh? Women dress down and start to compete with one another as to who can look " dull and drab " the most?

And working in a hospital environment is hardly the place to get all dressed up and where you'd necessarily need fashion advice is it?

Sorry I'm a tad confused here mate

On same note... Why do straight women that are interested in men ask other WOMEN "how do I look", not men?
There is no logic in this. If you want to be attractive to a man, why you ask woman?
In my experience, most men give bad advice in this area. I don't know any straight men who know how to put together sharp, stylish women's outfits consistently. There are a lot of nuances that go into creating a great outfit from top to bottom, to which most men are oblivious.

I'm not saying that this is true for all straight men. But it seems to be true for most.

IME, women will often be brutally honest with each other, while men will sometimes hedge, as they try to figure out what response won't send them straight to the doghouse.

I'd only take fashion advice from myself. Because I want to be myself and I know that my fashion sense is offbeat.
