So not long ago I was having a discussion on twitter with an author friend about what outfits we found sexiest on men. We differ quite a bit, we’re similar in many ways but she and I have very different tastes in our men. Neither one us is right, neither is wrong. We’re simply different people.
But it got me to thinking, especially once other people started chiming in, about what makes a person find someone attractive and someone else not. Now obviously, I am talking about the first reaction to someone’s physical appearance. And so much of appearance is about clothing. It’s really a matter of style and taste. And our tastes can change, even on a day-to-day basis. What I find attractive today may not be what I’m finding attractive tomorrow and it could all be due to the mood that I’m in. So everything is really subjective and it away I hesitate to even talk about it because to me it’s not set in stone.
However I have noticed, within myself, a tendency to like certain looks better than others. I like men in leather jackets, I like men in jeans, especially dark black ones. I like motorcycle boots on men. I prefer low-cut tank tops on men, and V-neck T-shirts. I also like cargo pants on men although I think they look better on men who are taller. I’m not much into suits – I find a little stuffy for my taste even though that does not mean I don’t think they can look good on a guy. Just not my thing. As far as women, because I am bi, I find that I prefer a curvy, retro glamour girl look. I love dresses and heels, and I’m a makeup junkie. I suppose it comes down to this: I like my men dressed in masculine clothing, and to me nothing says masculine so much as a leather jacket. And I like my women dressed in skirts and dresses. And if I had my druthers, both would have tattoos. ~grins~
So my question today for you, is what kind of clothing to you find most attractive on the opposite sex? Or on the same-sex if you happen to swing that way?
