As women, we enjoy trying out different fashions and trends as they come into style. Men, however, aren’t as adventurous when it comes to seeing their girl wearing the fashions of the time. Obviously, your style is always your choice and it comes down to your personal preferences, but if you’re trying to impress a guy you’ll want to avoid certain things.
Here are 22 fashion statements that just don’t jive with guys:
#1 Extended Hair: Ladies, hair extensions aren’t as real looking as you think, and the truth is that men can tell when you have extended hair. They prefer your natural look.
#2 Fake Nails: You’re better off painting your own nails or using a gel to make them fuller because men really don’t like the look of fake nails, especially very long and pointy ones!
#3 Heavy Makeup: Too much makeup can scare a guy away. Not only does it seem like you’re trying to hide something, but what happens when they see you without makeup for the first time and you look totally different?
#4 Painted Eyebrows: Unless you’re a trained makeup artist, painting your eyebrows can leave them looking fake and overdone. If you really want to add a punch to your eyebrows, it’s better to visit a specialist.
#5 Fake Flower Wreaths: Guys simply don’t understand why you would choose to wear these wreaths in your hair. They’re out of style so better to leave them there.
#6 Leggings: Men have a biased against curvier women wearing leggings. They think they are meant only for the gym.
#7 Colored Contacts: This is a no-brainer girls. A guy wants to know who you really are and that includes your eye color.
#8 Too Much Perfume: While men do appreciate when you wear a nice perfume, there is too much of a good thing. Keep your fragrance noticeable but not overwhelming.
#9 False Eyelashes: This is another look that is easy to tell apart from natural beauty, and men simply don’t think it’s necessary or especially attractive.

#10 Glasses Without Lenses: If you don’t need glasses, then there’s no reason to wear them. It’s as simple as that. Men think that you’re trying too hard with this look.
#11 Clothes the Flare Around Your Hips: It’s a common fashion style for women, but men are reminded of maternity clothes when they see this look.
#12 High Waisted Shorts: Unless you have a super thin waist, men seem to think that this style makes women look heavier than they really are.
#13 Bows: A man is looking for a woman to stand next to him, not a little girl.
#14 Long-Tail Dresses: Men just can’t comprehend the point of a dress that’s short in the front and long in the back. The asymmetry throws them off.
#15 Oversized Sweaters: Guys always prefer clothes that allow the natural curves of your body to show, and big sweaters don’t do that.
#16 Shaved Temples: Shaving one small area of your head is a move that puzzles men. It doesn’t make you any sexier to them and makes you look a bit like a poodle.
#17 Wedges: Men prefer classic heels to wedges because they like to see the shape of your feet.
#18 A Hand Full of Bracelets: Accessories can add to an outfit and even catch a man’s eye, but when you go overboard it just looks jumbled and distracts a guy’s eye.
#19 Leopard Print: This has been a go to print for women for quite some time now, but men actually associate it with women with a specific profession, if you know what I mean.
#20 Shoulder Pads: These things have been out of style for a very long time and they are not coming back, especially in mens’ opinion.
#21 Hippie Style Clothing: Men are visual creatures who like to see women looking put together. Hippie style clothing give the impression that you don’t care about your appearance at all.
#22 Overalls: When did overalls become adult fashion, anyway? This style reminds guys of children, which is not what he’s looking for in you!
There’s no need to change your personal style. Just consider these feelings if you’re trying to get the attention of a man in your life.
