We all know that the strereotype of males in fashion is mainly, guys that are not straight. The reason why I ask this question is...I am one of those guys highlighted in the title of this question.
When I look at women, I just don't look at how her facial features and body features look...I look at her actual ensemble (makeup, clothing, accessories, shoes, hair, etc.) herself and how it's put together.
I have an interest in observing female fashion and how the clothing, makeup and accessories are constructed and used in combination, as well as how certain types of clothes, makeup and jewelry flatter different bodytypes and heights.
When I shop and I come across womens' accessories, I can imagine how they would look on certain builds / complexions of woman and how they can mesh with other fashion items.
In fact, I help out the women in my family, female friends, and my girlfriends with putting ensembles together (clothes, shoes, makeup, accessories, hairstyle), and I did so voluntarily instead of grudgingly like a lot of my fellow males do. :-P
When it comes to actually approaching females, I genuinely compliment their entire "fashion package" and how well its put together (and I usually get flattered replies back). I also learned during my time as an insurance agent that I get more warm feedback from female prospects than male prospects...which is useful for if I truly wanted to pursue a career in womens' fashion.
...and yes, I have been asked if I was "not straight" before. So I adjusted my approach towards "females of interest" to be extra-bold to avoid confusion! :-P
