Anonymous asked: Ideal outfit for a girl to be dressed in? I'm quite curious as to how you are seduced....
A good part of me simply wants to howl “Red lipstick, knee high socks and nothing else!” but at the very least it’s horribly impractical and we all know I’m a little finer than that.
I guess I can only thank you for this sexual-objectification minefield of a question - so let’s wander and I’ll try not to blow my legs off.
Clothes do not, of course, maketh the woman but they can giveth the man a pretty good idea; there’s no avoiding the overwhelming physicality of first impressions but the most attractive women I know dress in ways that somehow mirror their personalities so there’s more to what makes you look great than the sheer superficiality of your clothing. If your clothes are just body coverings I’d say you’re not doing yourself any favours - dress purposefully.
But I digress, I have no idea what clothes makes women look especially alluring - it’s much more subjective than good-old-fashioned ultra-logical menswear with its obsessive-compulsive breaks and darts and hems and inches - you’ve got oodles more to play with (and I don’t envy you). Dress personally, uniquely, ridiculously, conservatively, provocatively, insanely, expressively, whatever, just do it with personal style… or some other vague hashtag cliche, but you get the idea
Yohji Yamamoto can be right on point so I’ll let him tackle the subtleties; even if he’s a little wordy and misty-eyed at times but he is unanimously and incontestably awesome so:
“For me, a woman who is absorbed in her work, who does not care about gaining one’s favour, strong yet subtle at the same time, is essentially more seductive. The more she hides and abandons her femininity, the more it emerges from the very heart of her existence.”
To distill that down into non “this quote’s gonna be so fucking internet famous” language,basically, like Yohji, I find ‘girly-girls’ with their preening and trivial unseriousness to wholly lack seductiveness. Be interested and interesting really; have your shit together and have useful ideas on your mind. Having a little gravitas doesn’t have to mean be boring - but good God if it’s done right… *be right back*
Seriously though: red/dark lipstick; it’s the cheatsheet to my heart…
