“What is she wearing?” “She really came out wearing that?” “Where did she get that?” If these questions have floated around in your head, what she had on was definitely a turn off to you I’m sure. Now I’m no guru on what women should wear or what goes with what. Don’t get it twisted however, I know what I like to see women wearing and these 10 things are not it. I’m sure most of you can agree, so here goes.
1. UGGS that lean
Now, I’m not a fan of UGGS in the first place. For one they are ugly. Two they are ugly, and three,… they are ugly. I’ve seen people wearing them at anytime throughout the year: rain, snow, or shine. If I’m not mistaken, aren’t they made of suede? Why wear them in the summer?
Yes, I have seen women wear them, and again, isn’t it…summer? The weather ranges from warm to hot in the summer right?
I’ve seen beautiful women with the nicest outfits wearing Uggs. Well, it didn’t do it for me and it totally offset what they had on. So imagine a pair that have been so worn down they start to lean. No bueno. Not a good look at all. It looks like you have deformed feet. Would it be so hard to just toss them and get a new pair?
2. Fake nails
Nails, especially when you look closely and SEE that they are fake because they haven’t been “pressed” on the right way. Anything on a woman that’s fake to me is a turnoff anyway. I guess fake boobies can get a pass as long as the woman is proportioned right. Right?
Okay before I go on a tangent about that I will stop. Speaking of fake, this brings me to….
3. Fake hair
Weave, wigs, extensions, you name it. If you have short hair, it’s all good. Rock that -ish proudly. Zhane pulled it off. Jada Pinkett, Demi Moore, and Halle Berry just to name a few. They pulled it off, so can you.
If your hair isn’t done right then go get it done. Why would you go and get a wig – especially one that isn’t mounted right or looks painfully obvious that it’s a wig? At the end of it all, I believe in au’ naturale. It accentuates a woman’s beauty. With that being said, if you let it grow out into an afro that’s cool too.
I know what you’re thinking, “Don’t all men love thongs”? Well to answer that, yes we do.
There’s only one small stipulation if you will: You have to have a booty. It’s imperative you have a nice apple bottom if you’re going to wear a thong. Onions, bubbles, you name it , you have to have it. You cannot wear a thong with a pancake. Sorry.
On another note, you don’t have to wear thongs with everything. If you have a summer dress, skirt, spandex, and you don’t want to have your panty line exposed that’s cool. However, you don’t have to wear it with every pair of pants or shorts you own though.
4. Gladiator sandals
You ever seen pictures of old gladiators jousting in the medieval times? Ever notice the sandals they have on?
Well women wear those today and they just…don’t…look..right. Even if your feet are done fresh, they still don’t.
There should be no hybrid of this dress apparel. You either are wearing jeans or leggings. And LiL’ Wayne had the absolute nerve to wear a pair of jeggings during the MTV music awards in 2011.
7. Drawn on eye brows
Ladies, if you have eye brows and they need to be done, don’t take the lazy route and shave them off just to turn around and draw on a pair. C’mon with all of that.
Me personally, I’d rather see a woman with a uni-brow than a penciled in one. They are very tacky to begin with and what if you mess up drawing them on,….what are you going to do, erase it and start all over? Please….
8. Clothes that are too loose/ tight
Pants that show a muffin top, shirts that show back rolls, stuffing your body into a size 10-12 knowing full well you’re a 16, etc. You know the deal. It’s simple: If you’re a big girl it’s cool, just buy stuff that fits and fits you nicely. For the smaller women, buy your size. If you have to buy a kids size, well it is what it is.
9. Low waist jeans
Men, we all like nice apples on women (I know, I know I mentioned it earlier) but showing butt cracks isn’t cute. I understand if you bend over and a little bit of it shows, then I guess stuff happens. But seeing it with your pants pulled up all the way is just not attractive. Simply put, just don’t buy them in the first place.
10. Inappropriate dress apparel for an event
Wearing booty cutter shorts and tight shirts to a kids birthday party. Wearing short skirts or see-through dresses at church or a funeral, or women who show too much cleavage for no apparent reason. I could go on and on. The bottom line is, you have to know when and how to dress the part.
Many women go places and they -as the kids say nowadays say- “force it”. This is emphasized for older women. No problem with you dressing nice and having sex appeal, but not smut appeal. You shouldn’t be 45 dressing like you’re 18.
So there is my list. I’m sure gents and ladies who are reading this can come up with some of your own. The floor is yours, oh yeah and stay tuned for Men’s Fashions That Turn Women Off.
