Ahh, boys. As a teenager, I am constantly bombarded with questions about the opposite sex from family, friends and parents alike. Admittedly, I am pretty picky about guys, and good dress sense in particular is a big point for me. So, if you're curious, here's some men's fashion items that I like...
|Yixing in blue checks|
|Jongin in graduated red checks|
I know I will get a lot of stick for this - what with the whole 'hipster' stigma around checked shirts, it seems as though you should get scorned for liking them...but I really like them! Especially red, I think it compliments dark hair really nicely. Plus, I don't know if it's one of those evolutionary psychological things, but I really like shoulders, and I think any type of shirt makes shoulders look really good. Well, most shoulders anyway.
|Kyuhyun and Sungmin in white|
Sticking with shirts, I just love white shirts. They look really clean-cut and sophisticated...like he has made an effort, you know? What can I say, I'm high maintenance, I like effort.

I don't actually know why I like v-necks. I suppose it's the shoulder thing again.
...yes, it's the shoulder thing. I'm sorry!
|SHINee channeling their inner|
Ok, so I'm not quite sure what to call this section, but I suppose vintage works. I like old-fashioned clothes. I'm not talking about breeches and tunics, of course, but I loved the Sherlock concept for SHINee's last comeback. Maybe it's my love of history, maybe it's growing up with detective dramas - who knows? I just like old fashioned clothes, and I am quite old fashioned myself.
(Bonus points for the waistcoats - I like waistcoats.)
|Changmin in...a floppy hat?|
Again, I'm not sure why, but I like hats. I suppose it's because it looks like they've made an effort to accessorize. I don't think there's a particular type of hat that I like best, but I think the appeal of snapbacks and beanies depends on the person wearing said item - face shape and all that. Frankly, a beanie or snapback on the wrong person can make them look like a total idiot.
|EXO looking suave and keeping the cold out|
at the same time in their navy coats
This is coming back to my liking of old-fashioned things, but I just love tailored coats, especially trench coats. I think it's the shoulder thing yet again. In fact, it's not just coats; I think I just love tailored clothing!
This post culminates in my extreme appreciation of suits; for me, there is nothing more attractive than a smart, well-fitting suit. It looks clean and polished, and it also makes the wearer look intelligent - and intelligence is something I like. I like everything that goes along with suits too - white shirts (as mentioned), ties, smart shoes...
So, in conclusion, it seems as though my ideal man would wear a suit with a checked shirt underneath, and a hat and trench coat to keep the cold away. That would be a strange sight...
As always, hope you enjoyed, let me know what you like your man to wear!
