Clothes men love on women

This feature story first appeared on Yahoo! Shopping in April, becoming one of our most popular fashion stories of the year. Whether it is the updated classic glam look with a rocker twist, or the laid-back track pants and Converse combo, these are just a few looks that men found desirable.

Sometimes the hardest outfit to put together is one that's interesting but not too interesting— something that's on-trend enough to impress judgy friends but not so fashion-forward it flies right over boys' heads (harem pants, shoulder pads and denim tuxedos come to mind).

From sweatpants to beachwear to cocktail dresses, these eight outfits fall right in that sweet spot. Neither costume-y nor too classic and conservative, they'll keep everyone happy...but most importantly YOU.

He'll like the high hemline, while you'll like the graphic print-mixing and perfectly oversize clutch.

The skirt's high-low hemline is like the outfit: simple and a little conservative...but also a teeny bit flirty.

  • 'I'm the victim,' Iowa teacher who had sex with student says on 'Dr. Phil'

    DES MOINES — A substitute teacher accused of having sex with a 17-year-old high school student in Cedar Rapids claims the student seduced her. Mary Beth Haglin was charged in July with sexual exploitation by a teacher. On Monday, she appeared on Dr. Phil, accusing the student of seducing her and sharing sexy photos with his friends. “Many people see him as the victim and me as the perpetrator. From a psychological standpoint and from every other standpoint, I feel like I am the victim,” Haglin said on the Dr. Phil show, citing the student's intelligence and “elevated vocabulary” as part of the seduction. Haglin pleaded not guilty to sexual exploitation by a school employee. Her trial is set to

    Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh won’t get the benefit of the doubt from many people when it comes to a dirty play. The Pittsburgh Steelers were not happy over a play last week in which Suh appeared to kick their quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger. The play happened in the fourth quarter, long after Roethlisberger tore the meniscus in his left knee (that injury will keep him out an estimated four-to-six weeks).

  • Kourtney Kardashian awkwardly 'blanks' TV hosts who ask about Kim

    Kourtney Kardashian had an awkward on-air moment Thursday morning when hosts of an Australian morning program asked how her sister Kim Kardashian is holding up after her robbery ordeal.   The questions was met with bizarre silence, while the reality TV star sat staring off camera, presumably listening to the panicked advice of her publicists.  SEE ALSO: Khloe Kardashian DGAF about Donald Trump calling her a 'piglet' Making matters worse, the connection was dropped. When producers got Kardashian back on the line post-ad break, she explained "we had a bad connection."   "I think she's totally blanking me on that question," said David Campbell, co-host of Today Extra , adding, "She could just say her sister is fine! I mean I think we just said that you know we're very concerned and we were onside and we hoped that everyone's fine, which I still do." According to The Herald Sun , Kourtney insisted that she be re-connected to the show’s host in order to address the question. Once connected, she discussed how the Kardashian klan was feeling after her sister was held at gunpoint during the Paris robbery.  "I think we're all really still shaken up and I just — you know, I think she has a big supportive family and I know that, like, all of the traumatic things that we've been through, you know, we get through them together as a family and that's what family is all about," she said.  While it might not be the most informative response ever uttered, it may have been worth it as an act of "saving face." What's a potential little white lie about a technical glitch between friends, anyway?   Many of us would love to use the old "we just had a bad connection" excuse to get out of conversations IRL, sometimes.   Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint in Paris

    In an interview Wednesday night, Donna Brazile, former CNN contributor and acting chairperson of the Democratic National Committee, maintained her innocence amid allegations she leaked a town hall question to the Clinton campaign — even when Fox News host Megyn Kelly pulled up an email plainly showing Brazile saying otherwise. "I did not receive any questions from CNN, let's just be very clear," Brazile said, when Kelly asked how she got the debate question "verbatim." Brazile jumped on the defensive, telling Kelly, "I will not sit here and be persecuted because your information is totally false." Kelly pointed out that her "information" came from Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta's

    When most celebrities spot the paparazzi, they don't look thrilled, but when Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn saw some photographers on Wednesday, they got a total kick out of it. The longtime lovebirds were enjoying a sunny afternoon out in LA when the Deepwater Horizon actor pointed out the paparazzi to Goldie, who immediately dissolved into laughter. Whether they think photographers are the funniest people on the planet or Kurt is way, way funnier than we ever imagined, the couple never fail to show us what true love looks like when they're out and about together.

  • Grisly Halloween display in Detroit decries US violence

    Detroit, United States - At a home on the city's west side, light-hearted Halloween decorations have been replaced with gruesome displays of murder, poisoning, kidnapping and attacks, all inspired by real-life events. "Nothing make-believe about it," said Larethia Haddon, the 56-year-old Detroit native behind the display. "This is going on every day in real life." The project is Haddon's protest against the violence and racial injustice afflicting her country. At her doorstep is a dummy stained blood-red with a sign that says, "My hands were up", referring to recent cases of police officers killing unarmed black men.  Below her window, a Frankenstein-like figure wields a fake knife and a sign

  • Father who ‘repeatedly raped his 12-year old daughter’ gets 60-day sentence. Fury erupts.

    As the judge in the Stanford rape case learned, along with the judge in the “affluenza” drunken driving case, the whole world is watching them. In the case of Judge John McKeon, as of early morning Wednesday, almost 20,000 people had signed a Change.org petition calling for his impeachment for the 60-day sentence he gave a Glasgow, Mont., man who pleaded guilty to repeatedly raping his prepubescent daughter. “A father repeatedly raped his 12-year old daughter,” Deputy Valley County Attorney Dylan Jenson said during an Oct. 4 sentencing hearing. Instead, though, Judge McKeon handed down a far lighter sentence: a 30-year suspended prison sentence, which means the man will only serve it if he fails to meet the conditions of his probation.

    Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have very different economic plans—and we can now safely disregard them both. Polls and prediction markets now forecast that voters will elect the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, president on Election Day. The odds of Democrats winning the Senate from Republicans are 50/50 or a little better, but the odds of Dems taking the House are only around 20%.
