I’ve worked for years as a matchmaker and an expert on datingand relationships. There’s one piece of consistent feedback that I’ve received from men time and time again. Are you ready to hearwhat men truly want in a date? Simple Answer: A Trendy Woman

Contrary to popular belief, men pay a little attention to current style and fashion trends. While they might not adopt any recent trends into their own wardrobe (or they might reject fashion completely and let their mom do their clothes shopping), they care about the style of the woman on their arm.

Even though men don’t wear many accessories, a well-put-together woman is the ultimate accessory in the male world. When you look classy yet hip, you flatter yourself and your date. When you’re in line with the latest fashion, men think you look young and current instead of old and out-of-touch.

The Shortcut to Style

The surefire way to look like a young, modern woman is to thoughtfully pick out one trendy item to incorporate into your look. Lots of trends are short-lived and misguided, so be careful while you’re shopping. Pick something that isn’t over-the-top and will still look good on you even when the trend dies in few months. A bold necklace or bright, flirty shoes will always accent your outfit without making you look like a mindless trend-chaser. Also, guys have told me repeatedly that a stylish handbag makes any woman look sharp.

Be Picky

When you hit the mall, be selective and particular about what you decide to bring home. The worst part about trends is that they take over every branch of the fashion world, from the cheapest stores to the snobbiest boutiques. Don’t buy anything that’s poorly-made; when your statement piece looks cheap, you look cheap. And you definitely don’t look like you know what you’re doing in the style department. Likewise, don’t pair an extremely expensive trendy item with a regular outfit or risk looking clueless. Expensive doesn’t equal stylish. Keep your wardrobe classy with high-quality pieces that flatter your personal style, shape and budget.

Don’t Dress Just for Him

Now that you know what men want in a woman, don’t take it overboard. Don’t ditch your own innate fashion sense just to keep up with the trends so that you can be attractive to men. Express your own personal style in a way that’s up-to-date with the latest fashion. Dress in a way that reflects your personality and taste, just make sure you add some punch to it with some trendy additions. Don’t ditch all your digs for clothes you saw on the catwalk or you’ll look like you’re trying way too hard. Not attractive. Looking too much like a slave to the latest trend will make you seem a lot older than you are. You don’t need to turn into a style-mag monster to show a guy that you’re contemporary and hip. If you’re comfortable in your outfit, you’ll project confidence and radiance, which guys will definitely notice.
