What look do you prefer in a woman

Just out of curiosity, if you are in a long term relationship / marriage, what sort of look do you prefer in a partner most of the time.

Casual: by that I mean someone who doesn't put any particular effort into makeup / clothing. I don't mean intentionally ugly or anything, but comfortable clothes and minimal hairstyling / makeup to minimize time / effort.

Stylish: Here I mean someone who chooses clothes to enhance her appearance, even if they are not the most comfortable / practical, and someone who puts a lot of effort into hair / makeup.

By most of the time, I'd still count it as preferring "casual" if you occasionally like to get dressed up to go out for a special occasion.

If I have to name a woman who I'd absolutely flip over is none other than The Talk's Julie Chen!

Articulate, educated, and altruistic! And dresses quite nicely whether it's either stylish or casual!

It's just her entire "package" and the way she handles it!

Naked is the look I prefer.

When not naked, then I guess casual.

I always thought that the housewife in smart dress, fancy apron and pearls cooking dinner looked a little out of place, even on TV.

Casual.

I find men who are dressed up and smelling of cologne a total turn-off. It takes a wedding or a funeral to put my guy into a suit, and that's exactly how I like it.

Casual naked. With a "come hither" look.

Re: What look do you prefer in a woman

Classy, to complement my not so classy academic looks. Or super casual to demonstrate her perfect shape. She trends towards super casual most times.

Re: What look do you prefer in a woman

I almost always prefer casual. It seems that there are always better ways to spend the time she would have spent looking stylish.

Its not that I don't notice stylish, its very nice to look at, but I don't prefer it in someone I'm spending time with. (Watching attractive Italian women walk by my cafe table is fine...)

Re: What look do you prefer in a woman

I don't understand why you pose the question as a choice between two extremes.

An example would be, if a woman has (and maintains) a good quality haircut then the styling required is minimal and her hair will always look great.

IDK, perhaps men do not understand the level of effort required for a particular look or style?

Re: What look do you prefer in a woman

Definitely stylish, by the definition given in the OP. I see it happening all the time, but why would anyone, man or woman, purposely choose clothes that don't enhance their appearance?? And no, stylish does not equal uncomfortable, per se.

Casual, as defined supra = minimal or no effort. Cheers. I perceive that as a precursor for other fields in life. Slackers are not attractive to me.

And that goes for men too. BTW, GF would not even dream of letting me step outside the door badly dressed (work history in men's fashion so she has a keen eye...). But that is never my intention anyway.

If casual meant, "stylish yet comfortable", that would be an entirely different ballgame.

Re: What look do you prefer in a woman

When I go out of the house I dress nice, all pulled together. Hair, makeup, cute flattering clothes, matching accessories etc. I got my first real glimpse of how I might be viewed by others thanks to my husband. We met on a VERY impromptu first date. I was out running errands in the town he lived in when he said "let's meet". I had a red silky blouse on, navy pinstriped skirt and matching navy pinstriped heels with a red accent flower on them. Later, he told me his immediate impression of me as I walked toward him at the restaurant was that I was a "hoity toity" (no clue how to spell that term) aka stuck up snob, rich Biotch. He was sure I had a new Mercedes in the parking lot and was going to be a high maintence chick.

I was mortified later to hear this first impression, and am afraid how many other people have been drawn to that conclusion about me. He said the second we started talking he knew his first opinion was wrong (I'm a mass spaz). When I am home I am super casual. My parents taught me to always look nice when out in public. So I would say I'm overall in the middle. Hubby doesn't mind casual one bit, but he loves me all dressed up too.

As for what I like him to be in, casual for the most part, but nice button down shirt and sexy jeans for going out. Dress pants and dress shirt for more formal things. We like to both look nice, and are well suited that way.

Ciao,

Spicy

Re: What look do you prefer in a woman

I like my women to look intelligent.

I know that's almost a cheat answer but the two poll choices felt like two extremes with no real middle ground. Before meeting my current partner I dated women who wore casual to the point of looking like slobs. Their hoodies were creased, trainers dirty, hair unkept and they'd walk with their faces down to the ground like sulking children. I also dated women who were stylish to the point of being fake. Layers of make up, an overuse of perfume that led to coughing fits, expensive shoes that limited movement and a "holier than thou" attitude which was a massive turn off. Both looks made the women seem unintelligent.

My current partner looks intelligent. She can wear an old pair of jeans and a flannel shirt around the house but still look amazingly hot. She can wear high heels and a little black dress when we go out and looks fantasticly sophisticated and sexy. The big deal for me is that she doesn't fall into either extreme and doesn't allow her appearance to dictate her behaviour and attitude. She can adopt a certain style when needed but she always remains her usual intelligent self.

Re: What look do you prefer in a woman

I like my women to be confident in whatever they wear. As long as they are comfortable with themselves, they will look great.

My impression of women who are always stylish is that they tend to be vain and somewhat narcissistic as well. I don't like women who are so self centered.

Re: What look do you prefer in a woman

I like my husband the way that he looked after coming off the field after a football game, but since he's retired from football, I'll settle for nothing but boxers after a good workout.

I presume that's not the answer you were looking for. I couldn't help myself. I couldn't keep my nose out of your business.
