Many of you might be saying “I should dress for myself, not for women!” and while that’s true, putting thought and effort into how you dress and how you’ll be perceived by women (or anyone really!) is not only important, but it’s a fact of life.
Thanks to our friends at The Tie Bar for sponsoring this video, we’re longtime fans of their dress shirts and their ties, they’re sure to help you look amazing!
How To Dress To Impress A Woman
Keep It Simple – Don’t overdress for the occasion and try too hard (ie: wearing a suit when it’s the wrong occasion / too many logos/hyped trends). Simple looks from an Essential Wardrobe like dark denim and a blazer or bomber jacket or chinos and an oxford are great places to start.
Put In Effort – Even though you want to keep it simple, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t put in thought and care to your look.
Fit Is Key – I repeat this all the time (because it’s important) but your clothes and look will be most attractive if they fit you properly and flatter your body type. Need some fit tips? Check out our Fit Guide, it’s all there!
Presentation – Make sure your clothes aren’t wrinkled or dirty. It may seem obvious but taking a few extra minutes to properly iron/steam your outfit goes a LONG way.
Dress For Confidence- Yes, I know this isn’t technically something you wear but in many ways, it’s just as important. Being confident and comfortable in your own skin is super attractive and will enhance your overall appeal and how you’re perceived. Feeling good about what you’re wearing goes a long way to helping you feel confident so it’s all intertwined.

By now you know how important a strong shoe rotation is to your overall wardrobe. As we talked about in our previous video, Shoes Women Hate, your footwear is a big part of what women notice about your right off the bat. Outside of choosing the right style, it’s important to keep in mind that you also need to wear the right shoe for the right occasion, too formal or too casual a shoe with the wrong outfit can throw off your entire look.
In this video, we’re going to flip the coin and run down the key styles that women will really notice. From sneakers to dress shoes, here are 5 shoe styles women love.
5 Shoe Styles Women Love
1. Casual Leather Sneakers – Classic and versatile, they go with almost every casual outfit. Just make sure to keep them clean! White, Gray, Tan, Black.
Penny Loafers – Another classic, they elevate every casual outfit with a little bit of polish. Wear them with denim, chinos, and even dressier business casual outfits.
Chelsea Boots – These boots are super sleek and sexy, a perfect fashion-forward item to give your wardrobe a little bit of edge. Leather or suede works.
Classic Lace Up Dress Shoes – When you’re dressed to the nines the wrong shoe can absolutely ruin how awesome your suit looks. Stick to a clean, classic oxford in dark brown, it looks powerful and professional. Don’t forget to keep them shined.
Lace Up Boots – A nice boot looks amazing with denim or chinos and is a great way to add a bit of ruggedness to your wardrobe.

It’s a fact that one of the first things a woman notices about you is your shoes. So obviously it’s important to make sure your shoe game is on point. We always talk about how important it is to regularly clear out old and out of style items, and shoes are no different. Shoes are a key part of your overall look, and a few wrong choices or out of date items can easily ruin an otherwise great look.
Here are Ashley’s picks for 5 Men’s Shoe Styles That Women Hate!
5 Shoe Styles Women Hate
- Square toed dress shoes
Out of date and out of style, get rid of them right now. Get yourself a proper pair of dress shoes instead.
4. White loafers or loafers with contrasting stitching
Your loafers should always have same-color stitching and white loafers are another out of date style nobody should wear. Try our Loafer Guide for better options.
3. Chunky basketball/gym sneakers
The gym or basketball court is fine but outside of that, these shouldn’t be worn with casual clothing. White sneakers or dress sneakers are a much better look.
2. Rubber flip flops
Unless you’re at the beach or pool these aren’t a good look.
Keep them to the bathroom or inside the house, nobody should see these!
You’re an elder statesman now, it’s time to start looking like one. – Classy, poised, confident. Basically, you need to dress your age, but what that means is probably not what you’re thinking. In addition to cultivating a timeless Essential Wardrobe, here are some things to look out for and avoid as you cultivate your style as an older gentleman.
Things To Avoid:
- Anything with logos unless it’s a sports team at a sporting event or a band tee at a concert
- Excessive jewelry or cologne
- Anything distressed
- The classic white or grey old man, bulky sneakers (New Balances, Nikes). There’s way better-looking options that are just as comfy
- Anything loose or baggy. Fit is key, so check out our Fit Guide!
- Anything that fits too tight. Clothes should hug your body, not strangle it.
- Sandals of all kinds unless you’re swimming or by a body of water.
- Leather jackets – biker, cafe racer – it’s way too mid-life crisis. Always opt for a classic suede bomber.
In this Pick of the Week, Ashley and Dorian are sharing their latest pick to help you get organized, be more productive and crush your goals.
