We’ve all heard it said that girls dress for other girls, and if girls had to dress for boys, then naked is the attire of choice. However, this may not all be true. Many relationships, after all, start through physical attraction, and this can be anything on your person whether that be your face, body, and even the way you dress. For this article, I decided to do extensive research on the psychology of fashion. This edition, if it isn’t already obvious, is for the girls who have crushes but don’t necessarily know how to get their attentions.
Discretion: This article is not a way to gauge whether your crush will come to like you. Again, this is simply ways to get his attention through fashion, and is no way, shape, or form completely full-proof. Remember that beauty is still in the eye of the beholder and that every man is different. If you truly want him to like you, then the best advice is to just be yourself.
Without further ado, here are Picit’s five tips for attracting his attention:
1. Soft Round Shapes
Woah there, girlfriend! While there are obvious areas that come to mind by the tip title, we classy ladies want to keep something to the imagination. Scientifically, men are more attracted to soft round shapes. In this case, I’m talking more about shoulders to the nape of your neck. Wearing an off-shoulder top is a great way to emphasize this area. If you want more tips on how to wear this look, look back at Picit’s previous article on the off-shoulder fashion trend.
2. Lady in Red
I suppose this one’s not too much of a no-brainer. However, did you know that from a scientific standpoint, women wearing red are seen as more attractive than those who don’t wear red. Red is also a bold and eye-catching color. If the fashion seems too obnoxious for wherever you see your crush, then the classic bold red lip is a wonderful way to incorporate this tip into your style.
3. The Bigger the Hair, the More We Care
If my “That’s so Raven” pun didn’t stun you, then this fact will. From a subconscious standpoint, long hair is actually associated with good health and fertility. This is why one of the best ways to attract his attention is to leave your hair down and as big as possible. If you don’t have long hair, then extensions are the way to go, and if that’s not an option, just make sure that your hair isn’t pasted flat to the top your head. Teasing and hairspray are your best friends.
4. Lip Gloss is Poppin
People often say that the eyes are the first facial features that are recogonized on a person’s face. However, some men are more drawn to a woman’s lip more than any other facial feature. Therefore, accentuating your lips using lip gloss or even a bold lipstick is more likely to draw his attention. The shinier it looks, the more supple and appetizing he thinks it is, which may have him wondering what it’s like to kiss you.
5. Where and what perfume?
According to recent studies, scent is actually the most important factor of attraction. The best places to sprits your perfume is actually at the top of your head and the back of your neck. Why? Because it is the first thing he will notice when he comes in for a hug. The best types of perfumes are the ones with black pepper as one of the notes because it’s said to be one of the most sensual types of scent.
