Style-Delights: Things Every Guy Should Know About Women and Our Style!

Things Every Guy Should Know About Women and Our Style!

The 'Internets' are buzzing with the Valentine's Day chatter! There is a lot of talk of what to wear, what to gift, what to say and what to write! I recently read a feature about what gifts women really want on V-Day, and it got me thinking- there is one thing every woman wishes - for her man to understand (I mean really understand) her style and her shopping sense! {Although diamonds are really up high in that wish-list!}  
  • We need more than one black and one brown pair of shoes -  Average American woman owns about 17-19 pair of shoes, according to the ShopSmart magazine's 2011 survey (although my guess would have been higher, much higher!) And there is a reason behind it!  Shoes are not an afterthought for us - our outfits are built around a pair of shoes. So next time you see our shoe closet, don't gasp!

  • We Don't consider flip flops as "shoes" - 'nuff said! Add this point to the first one! And yes, We also need more than one pair of flip flops - poolside pair is sooooooo different than the one we need for those cute shorts!

  • So long we are talking about shoes, here is one more - We still wear the same shoes again for a big occasion - you know the ones we complained that they 'were killing our feet' - we are that tough! But it doesn't mean we don't want your sympathy (and a foot rub when we come back home!)

  • When we say we are going shopping, it doesn't necessarily mean we are buying - So don't look confused when we come home empty handed after 3 hours in the mall! Just like diet cola, we do zero-calorie shopping - all the fun and no spending! (We know you secretly love us for this, don't you!)

  • When you say blue - we imagine blue, turquoise, aqua, indigo, sky-blue, so be specific. And don't get offended when we say blue-ish and our girlfriends understand what kind of blue we are talking about. We have an in-built radar for those kind of things!

  • When we drag you to Zegna sample sale, we do it out of love for you! We love your dapper look! So don't mind the crowd, chaos and cash-only of those sales! Just like us, you're worth it too!

  • When we say we are getting ready, we mean we are more than combing our hair, so time your clock accordingly. Waiting in the car is not gonna help ya! Mama needs time for primping! We still make it on time, don't we? (and you get a twinkle in your eyes when you see us climbing down the stairs -à la My Fair Lady!)

  • We love Tennis but sometimes we watch a match to only gawk at Djokovic's butt! Sorry babes- We may be on a diet, but that doesn't mean we can't look at the menu!
We love our guys- however clueless they are about our fashion - and we always will do! I just hope this list will give them some idea to make sense of our style!
Do you have more pointers you want to add to this list??
