Any woman will agree with me that they like it when their men dress in a particular way, following a certain fashion sense. So much so when she’s the one who has recommended you dress in that outfit. Here is a short fashion miss story. Seven years ago, I was dating this girl, who knew very little about fashion, but had everything to say about the same, with the female news anchors suffering the most as she expressed her opinion every single time we watched TV together. She would go like, “What is this woman wearing? My goodness! She would have chosen a yellow top to match her yellow shoes! Who dresses these women for Pete’s sake! They constantly look hideous.”
All I did was to listen, as I never thought that my day of being victim was nearby. Trust me, it wasn’t long. On this particular Christmas Eve, we were to go meet her lady friends, that she wanted to introduce me to. So I showered and dressed up, believing I had nailed it, or rather that’s what I thought. Clearly, she had other ideas. I approached her as she was waiting in the living room. “What do you think?” I asked. The only response I got was silence and a look I shall never forget. When she finally spoke, this is what she said. “Are you sure that’s what you want to wear?” Trust me, from the way it was asked, I knew the question was purely rhetorical! I went back and changed, with her guidance and the rest as they say is history.
I know some of you are already silently, if not loudly condemning me for being weak, but you may be sailing in the same boat. How many times has your woman commented on how poorly dressed you are, just by glancing at you (even if she does not necessarily have a fashion degree, but behaves like she does when it comes to you)? This is what I will say, the next time your lady looks at your outfit with a certain eye, asks a question, or takes time before she comments about what you are wearing, act with immediate effect. It’s a RED SIGN…and that means Stop.
Why is it a RED SIGN though? This is because women have a very sensitive instinct, they can smell that you are not comfortable in what you are wearing, and no woman wants to walk with a man who’s not comfortable with himself. Because when you are comfortable, you are confident. From all experience, women will adore a confident man. Women also understand you better, more than you understand yourself actually. They know what’s best for you, but because you want to be the ’man’, make all the decisions, especially those that concern you, you choose to remain rigid, thinking that she wants to change you, yet in reality she’s after your own interests (including your looks which primarily interest her).
So if you want to understand your personality better, and how you can bring it out through good dressing, listen to your woman, because most women fall in love with your personality which is who you are. Even when younger, it is our mothers who choose and influence our fashion sense. I guess women can influence your fashion sense greatly if allowed.
As one fashion designer likes to put it, “Your body speaks, what you wear communicates”.
