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.

    • That didn't take long: Trump's press secretary is already a meme

      We're one day into the Trump presidency and the memes are already flying. President Donald Trump's Press Secretary Sean Spicer gave a press conference Saturday in which he complained about the media's "false" reporting of crowd numbers at the inauguration.  Although he admitted to not having any, you know, hard figures, he declared:  "This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration — period — both in person and around the globe." SEE ALSO: All the best protest signs from Women's Marches across America In so many ways, he was just plain wrong. Pictures from President Barack Obama's inauguration in 2009 show many more people on the mall than on Saturday, and D.C.'s transport agency told the Washington Post that 570,557 people took trips Friday compared to 1.1 million trips in 2009. Nielsen also estimated that about 31 million viewers watched TV coverage of the day —  less than Obama and Ronald Reagan's first inaugurations. Not to mention, Spicer claimed that Trump's inauguration was the first time "floor coverings" had been used to protect grass on the National Mall, making empty space more obvious. He was also wrong: Tarps have been used before. Now people on the internet have suggestions for some other "yuge" inaccurate facts Spicer could share next. Of course, there's already the inevitable Twitter account @SeanSpicerFacts as well as the #SpicerFacts hashtag.

    • AT&T is losing cellphone customers, fast

      AT&T is steaming ahead at full speed with its plan to merge with media company Time Warner. That's probably a good thing for the company's bottom line, as the wireless business is losing customers at speed. According to an analyst note from Cowen and Company Equity Research, seen by  Fierce Wireless , AT&T is leading other carriers in customers departing every quarter. "“When asking postpaid subscribers that have been with their carrier (less than) two years which carrier did they previously have, the top answer for current Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon respondents was ‘previously AT&T,’ whereas in previous surveys it’s been more mixed," the note reportedly said. That makes sense when you look at AT&T's numbers. The company lost 268,000 subscribers during Q3 2016, and a Wells Fargo analyst predicted  that the company lost another 220,000 in the fourth quarter. AT&T claims the subscriber losses are due to a new, more focused retentions system, whereby they focus more on lucrative customers, and allow those on cheaper plans to defect to other cell carriers. That's what you'd expect a company that's slowly fading to say, but it does also make a small amount of sense given AT&T's recent direction. It's focusing more on high-value customers who buy cable, TV and wireless service in a bundle, or those who at least subscribe to DirecTV Now. The strategy adopted by T-Mobile , which is probably stealing most of AT&T's customers, is nearly the complete opposite. For T-Mobile, it's all about selling the single semi-unlimited data plan it now offers and getting multiple lines onto one account. Time is going to tell which strategy ultimately makes more money, but history is more in favor of T-Mobile's direction here. The economics of wireless leans in favor of the more customers, the better. The additional cost of letting one more customer use your giant national infrastructure is low, so the more customers you have, the easier it is to grow your network -- and the data shows that the one thing people really care about is good service.

    • White House vows to fight media 'tooth and nail' over Trump attacks

      By Doina Chiacu and Jason Lange WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House vowed on Sunday to fight the news media "tooth and nail" over what it sees as unfair attacks, with a top adviser saying the Trump administration had presented "alternative facts" to counter low inauguration crowd estimates. On his first full day as president, Trump said he had a "running war" with the media and accused journalists of underestimating the number of people who turned out Friday for his swearing-in. White House officials made clear no truce was on the horizon on Sunday in television interviews that set a harsher tone in the traditionally adversarial relationship between the White House and the press corps.
