Football Sunday

She can have her own team or choose to hop on my team’s bandwagon but it’s important that she has a jersey or tee shirt for football on Sundays. When you think about it, watching sports is something men do on their off day that takes up anywhere from 4 to 12 hours; you should find a way to spend that time together — in the appropriate apparel of course.

Leggings and sneakers/heels

I’m well aware that leggings afford women the ability to be lazy when it comes to fashion, but when executed appropriately they can be super sexy. They’re also very versatile which is something that men like in their woman’s wardrobe. She can go from chilling in the crib watching TV to stepping out to a nightclub or lounge in 5-10 minutes.

Professional style

I like a woman who knows the difference between church, the club and work. Most women dress the same for all three, but they all deserve a different look. I want to see what she looks like in her Warby Parkers, knee length skirt and blazer. She can have on heels or flats, but to me that’s just sexy.

A quick get-up

There’s nothing worse than trying to leave the house in a few minutes and it takes your girlfriend no less than 30 minutes to look presentable. Every woman should have a quick get-up that she can throw on in a few minutes and still look presentable. Usually what you grab when you rush are the sweats you hate and that hat you think is frumpy. Having a quick get-up is not just about the physicality of the look, it’s a clutch performance that makes a man proud.


Don’t get it twisted, men love women in lingerie. Even if we don’t plan on them keeping it on for long, we want to know that they can pull it off. A lot of women don’t see the purpose, but it’s like a wrapper. Nobody stares at a jolly rancher wrapper for long, but if it didn’t have it, we’d think it was suspect.
