I have always been called a very "unique" person with a style to match. I'm extremely art oriented. I don't follow any particular social "movement" and I can't stand stereotypes.
I tend to wear eye-catching clothing. I like patterns a lot. I have pants that are zebra printed, leopard printed, striped, plaid, tie die, you name it and sometimes I wear skirts over normal flared jeans. I have tons of crazy graphic tee shirts (many I made myself) and I wear usually several necklaces at once my favorites are blown glass and costume jewelery. I have crazy colored and sparkly shoes. I do get compliments a lot on my jewelery and my shoes. I won't change I know but I do wonder what guys think about this.
Well style aside, your character and your looks have a lot to do with what guys ultimately think about you. Personally, I like a girl with unique, unconventional style...as long as it isn't over the top "LOOK AT ME" kind of stuff. Interesting patterns, and cloth are always eye catchng to me. I definitely notice girls with style, then again, I'm more the artsy type (im a musician/writer)...so I understand the whole stereotype thing. I never molded into any trendy style of dress, and always done what I want...and consequently set trends amongst my friends! haha. Different guys like different things though. Guys who can see through mainstream values will likely be intrigued by the dress you describe.
