My opionion about girls who dress well is that you can't judge a book by it's cover. Sje might be the nicest person or the biggest snob. I think it's the personality behind the girl that makes the difference. Whether what she says or her body language. I think it's good to see girls dress good. It draws attention to them. And it's good eye candy. But the attitude makes the difference the attitude can mess up the pretty picture.
The simple fact of the matter is that staying in style is 1) expensive and 2) difficult even if you could buy everything since you need to keep abreast of what's coming in and going out.
with that said, a woman who dresses well and flaunts the most popular styles is pretty much universally appreciated by guys in my current demographic (law/med students in their early to mid 20's). I'd go so far as to say that most guys I know are exclusively interested in girls who dress with high style and good fashion sense. Not everyone can do it for various reasons, and that's not their fault. But the fact of the matter is that if you see someone who is dressed like that, you know this person cares enough about how they present themselves to earn your respect. Its definitely a respect earning thing, that you realize that fashion takes work and some sacrifice (even if the money isn't yours, but ideally if it is) since you need to allot the money from your budget to it.
this is ironic because when I grew up I was the only one who felt this way. Well not the only one. Every single guy I knew went drooling after such girls. but since most guys stood no chance with them they would publicly rebuke them as spoiled rich girls or mindless sheep. Well then, let them have the girls with middling or bad fashion senses. As I went off to college the general feeling was, again, 99% of guys went crazy for these well dressed ladies, but only 45-55% felt they could pull said women so the ones who couldn't would continue to deride these well dressed women. Their loss again.
At this current state in my life pretty much every guy I know tells the same stories about how everyone always bad talked women with great fashion sense and they have no idea what everyone else around them was smoking. We totally appreciate girls who know how to take care of themselves and represent themself with stylish appearance in public. And to be fair, the women I study with feel the same way about their men. Fashion matters a lot to them as well and they won't date guys who don't care about fashion. Everyone wants a partner who can look the best possible. I may not speak for everyone at every level, but I really think that the hate from other women comes from the fact that they can't sacrifice the time or money needed to be ontop of fashion. and the negative thoughts from less mature guys generally comes from them rationalizing that if they can't have the ideal, they need to find the flaws to make them feel better about picking for something else. And there are flaws, but generally speaking you can have a vapid person that looks any way. Its just as likely they be dressed to the 9's as they are wearing something comfortable but remain equally vapid.
The way I see it, style is all about self expression. And if your form of self expression means following style trends, it says to me that you are not an individual, but that you are, instead, a mindless drone or a sheep. I do not associate "wearing clothes that are in style" with having style, or with dressing well.
I don't even notice actually, if you were wearing an expensive shirt from some in style store or a T-shirt from Wal-Mart I wouldn't beable to tell the difference. I prefer the tank top / T-shirt and jeans look myself.
If you dress well, guys notice. If you're wearing this year's fashion as opposed to last year's, almost no guy will notice. If you go too far, guys can tell and will avoid. My advice: put in some effort, but if you're worrying about brand name or whatever, you're gonna quickly be picked out by guys as "working too hard" and possibly "insecure".
Your clothes say a lot about you. I disagree with WeaponZero (he usually has negative comments anyways) on his perception of trends. Trends exist for a reason...to set an acceptable standard for people to follow.
I like clothes that fit on a girl: tight jeans, nice flannel shirts rolled up at the sleeves and knotted in the back and/or front, summer dresses, etc.
If I see someone who doesn't at least try to present themselves well, I would figure they would not really want to succeed in life...even if they have a well paying job. How you dress is how you are perceived...but by all means...just be yourself. Follow some trends (tight jeans) but skip others (uggs).
No I don't think she is a snob. The way a person dresses say a lot about the personality: Girls or People in general that dress well are usually for the most part more organized or are people that care a lot about their reputation, therefore they usually like to be ahead.
One of the girls I work with is like this and her justification is that it's her hobby - I have guns and a motorcycle, she has a zillion pairs of shoes and a bunch of purses. She's naturally good looking and likes to dress up and flaunt it if you will.
Still, when I see a girl dressed up in the "latest fashion" as you put it I usually think one of three things; rich dad, rich husband, or gold digger. Now, I don't act on those assumptions and give everyone the benefit of a doubt but that is my gut reaction.
In all likelihood, you have I have very ideas as to what is "dressing well." When I see people wearing clothes that are stylish, I mostly assume they're an automaton subjected to the group-think of the fashion industry. They were successfully molded into the consumers that are the keystone to our economic system.
Like a great band said, "it's not so bad being trendy - everyone that looks like me is my friend."
depends on the type of "style" she's wearing if she's wearing something that a rich girl would wear than she's considered a snob rich girl that just wants a rich guy but if her clothes are normal everyday stuff than I guess she's OK ... the old saying goes clothes make a girl who they are ... sometimes
just to add... not that ill ever approach her to ask her out ether way by her clothes etc... I prefur the girl to ask me out
No, I think she cares about her apprearance, & I respect her for that.
I like girls like that. It shows she cares about how she looks and I find it attractive.
Personally, I think it's a good thing. The clothes a person wears is a statement of who they are. You are what you are, and a person who dresses well and has style shows that she cares about how she looks around other people. People notice it and will try to get your attention if possible. Don't think think it makes you look like a snob, chances are those people just don't fit your personality, or jealous.
She cares about her appearance, so what? She spends her money and time on clothes. Why should that make her shallow or snobby? Everyone has their own interests and that doesn't make them any less of a person.
Guys spend thousands on electronics, cars, etc. Yet, no one says anything about that.
Like I said, different people have different interests
