So if it's not preppy & conservative, then what is it? That's what your first post sounds like also. There's nothing wrong with that, but it tends to look "mature".

It's important to dress as you want to.

I agree with the other posts - your style is not hers. But that's not your problem.

I told you how I dress. Now, I'm mixing it up a little this weekend. I'll be competing at Emerald Ball and I will be wearing a two piece lime green latin outfit on Thursday for Int. latin, a red ballgown on Friday for int. std., a silver fully stoned backless latin dress for am. rhythm on Saturday, and a black ruffled gown for am. smooth on Sunday. Then after that, it's back to my skank look.

think of it this way
you can be the ugliest dude with the nicest shirt on and still be ugly
you can be the hottest dude and have the ugliest shirt and still be hot

I don't wear sports team apparel except for when I go to a sporting event.

I like my preppy urban style- jeans, Polo shirts, fitted tee shirts, either some nice casual shoes or sneakers (only nikes, either certain vintage jordans or certain running sneakers) and jeans that fit, usually bootcut. I don't like them too wide of an opening, because then I'll be walking on them.

I fit in a large. I don't do the baggy, XL thing anymore. It looks ridiculous, plus I work hard in the gym, so I want my clothes to compliment my bulges!

I adore Brooks Brothers. Anyone dressed in that is looking good as far as I'm concerned. Even my 16 year old son loves it. I also like Tommy Bahama - bought a top there last week, and my son was DYING for me to buy him a jacket in there...but they didn't have his size.

As far as the "wear more ball hats and gym shoes" comment....umm...how old is she? Of course this also relates to the environment one is raised in. I have a strong distaste for ball caps worn anywhere other than the gym, beach, or sporting events. They tend to make the guy look like they have an issue with their hair, or they are hiding bed-head. Athletic shoes should be worn for the purpose for which they were designed. (I would never wear my running shoes out to a store...or anywhere other than running, or the gym - just looks kind of silly to me. )

I know my standards of dress are much more conservative than many men that I date, but that's just how I am. I always have been one to enjoy dressing up, rather than down, and looking as nice as possible when out in public. Thankfully my son has contracted the same affectation.
