In a revealing new study of 1,564 men aged between 18 and 30, www.MyCelebrityFashion.co.uk found that certain things women find fashionable is a turn-off for some men, including too much makeup and tattoos.
Just over half of the men disliked the fashion phenomenon of Jeggings. Just 21% liked the look, while a third didn’t even know what they were. UGG boots were the most hated item of clothing with 57% of men saying so. A third said they liked them, making Uggs the most well known on the list. 38% of men disliked the Harem style trousers and leg warmers were hated by 30%.
It was not only style, but colour that proved to make a massive impact on men. A massive 73% hated the recent trend in neon fashions; this was closely followed by pink. Darker colours were considered much more popular with 3 in 5 men saying they found dark coloured clothing sexy.
44% of men didn’t like the idea of tattoos on women, the main reason for this being poor designs whilst 1 in 5 thought they looked tacky. One third of the men liked tattoos and 23% said they didn’t mind them.
The subject of makeup provided a mix of answers, 68% of men said they disliked too much slap, however 20% of these said some make up was better than none at all.
Alexandra Burke, Alexa Chung and Cheryl Cole were deemed the most stylish women in showbiz, claiming 83% of all answers. From the men, Rhianna failed to score many points and 3 in 5 men labelled her the worst dressed celebrity of 2009.
In contrast, when questioned on which female fashion trends they liked the most, the top answer with 37% was the maxi-dress. The one shoulder dress was second with 25%, and other contenders included A-Line skirts and skinny jeans.
However when asked what styles that men hated on other men, skinny jeans were rated top hated taking 57% of the answers.
Speaking about these latest findings, Andy Barr, Marketing Director of MyCelebrityFashion.co.uk said;
"Its really interesting to see that some of last years fashions have been so unappealing, particularly when they have sold so successfully. Its a fascinating look at how men and women think so differently.
Even though this is what the men think, I doubt it will change what women like and how they dress. Its all a matter of personal opinion and feeling comfortable in your own skin.
