When I say athletic, I don't mean body type. I mean type of clothing. And by preppy I don't mean sweater vests, but more of that casual preppy. To give you guys a visual:
Preppy: Cardigans, v-necks, converses, nice jeans, Abercrombie and fitch, polos, etc.
Athletic: Sports tees, sweatshirts, they use running sneakers as casual sneakers, baseball caps, etc.
So ladies, which style appeals to you the most? and even the guys; which style do you like better?
udolipixie brought up a good point; both these styles are on nice built guys.
I guess to give you a better visual; check out these pictures (went through the trouble of blacking out faces so girls wouldn't be biased if one guys hotter than the other, this is extensive research lmao):
I didn't look at the pictures but I don't lean more toward one or the other. Mostly because the guys I like wear both. For the most part. My current boyfriend wears athletic clothes. Other guys I've liked wear preppy clothes. But I think it's best to mix them together. Mainly because guys who wear preppy clothes tend to be self centered, dramatic and materialistic. But jocks can be overly absorbed in sports, bully-ish, and stupidly unobservant.
(Please keep in mind, these are stereotypical observations and do NOT apply to everyone, so please don't take it personally).
Putting them together I think is a good mix because people can't judge you based on your clothes, they have to get to know you because your expressing yourself with two different personalities. Not to mentions that if you do it right, they look really good together. Like a JUST DO IT. shirt, Hollister jeans, Nike shoes, and an A&F bracelet or necklace. Or you could switch off from sporty to preppy every day or every week or whatever you want. I think a switch up gives people character and a kind of multiple personality that makes me want to get to know them.
This of course is a very visual perception based on possessions, but its true. Many people are very visual and other people's possessions matter to them. So does how well they take care of themselves. So as long as you dress nicely, for the most part it shouldn't matter too much to most people.
I don't like either no offense. Preppy is too... Preppy. And athletic is too... Athletic lol. I don't really like sporty guys or guys who wear abercrombie or whatever because it just is eh. I don't like it. If I had to choose a style for a guy it would be grunge, rocker.. Normal? I don't know if it fits the guy it fits the guy I guess. The guys who usually wear those two types of styles aren't usually my type but It doesn't mean I wouldn't be open to dating either of them.
T-shirts and jeans are cool with me. Plaid, button downs.
ehh, either looks good on a built guy, if a scrawny guy wears all the athletic stuff it kinda looks weird... but if the guys built id assume it looks better. I don't really fit either def. I wear my hat (always) sweats and either sweatshirt, or tshirt
