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.

Sexy swimsuit

      Bare is the new beautiful, as seen at this year’s fall/winter New York and London Fashion Weeks. From bare faces to bare chests, the most prominent trends included minimal makeup and sheer tops that showcased the natural body. Kendall Jenner (outspoken about embracing her nude chest) kicked off the trend at the La Perla show in a glittering gown resemblant of Marilyn Monroe’s (then-scandalous) “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” dress. Numerous designers followed suit, flaunting the #freethenipple movement down the runway—including Naeem Khan, Jenny Packham, and Adam Selman, among others. Other designers such as Katie Gallagher have long created a name for themselves for their uncensored aesthetic.

      The United States should expect a "strong slap in the face" if it underestimates Iran's defensive capabilities, a commander of the elite Revolutionary Guards said on Wednesday, as Tehran concluded war games. Since taking office last month, U.S. President Donald Trump has pledged to get tough with Iran, warning the Islamic Republic after its ballistic missile test on Jan. 29 that it was playing with fire and all U.S. options were on the table. "The enemy should not be mistaken in its assessments, and it will receive a strong slap in the face if it does make such a mistake," said General Mohammad Pakpour, head of the Guards’ ground forces, quoted by the Guards' website Sepahnews.

    • Why flight attendants prefer to work in economy over first class

      Everyone wants to be upgraded on a flight, apart from the flight attendants it seems. You’d think the cabin crew would much prefer working for a handful of posh people in Business or First Class, instead of hundreds of flustered passengers in Economy, but it turns out that’s not the case. Many airlines have an promotion system, where you start off in economy, then work your way up to business and first class, but other companies let the crew choose where they want to work for that flight. Because according to the accounts of several flight attendants, while they might be serving 10 people instead of 70 in the fancy cabins, their constant demands actually mean they work a lot harder.
