It is not that easy to decode a man’s brain, miss. While you think that men do not care about anything except cricket, food and sex, they actually observe a lot, especially on that first (or twenty-first) date. We bravely go where no man has dared to go before, and put together those 10 things that Indian guys notice about a girl’s dressing.
Bling: Yes dear. Unless your man is a jeweller himself, chances are that he wouldn’t appreciate a lot of bling. So when you dress up, make sure that the bling factor is balanced and your man doesn’t need to wear sunglasses to look at you.

Colours: Not that they are tasteless, but an overdose of colours does turn men off. Your blue chinos, your green T-shirt, yellow bags and red ballerinas, they all will be appreciated, but not all at once.
Cologne: Men like smelling food, not perfumes. Kidding. Every man admires a good scent, but they hate an overdose of it. Let them come near you to know that it’s a Victoria Secret’s perfume. Wearing too much of it will only keep him away. (Read this to find out what your perfume says about you.)

Makeup: After video games, this is one thing all men will agree upon. Wearing too much makeup is a big no-no. Keep it subtle and prefer matte and nudes. (Read our makeup section for plenty of looks and tips.)

Footwear: While the tick-tock sounds of high heels may make their heads turn in office, the same sound would make the head hang low in the theatre. Choose your footwear accordingly. Don’t go to the movie or adventure park with your heels, please.

Tinker bells: Though traditional embellishments required Indian women to wear clinking bangles or go ‘cham-cham’ with their heavy anklets, the modern man finds tinkling sounds coming from every part of you a turn-off. They would appreciate a single, stylish anklet but not the ghungroos on your bags, dupattas, kurtis, earrings and, yes, bangles. If you love leaving behind a trail of sounds, make sure it is a melody and not a cacophony.

Rear-view issue: Yes, they hate it when you keep re-adjusting the rear-view mirror to re-analyse the lipstick. While they may never admit it openly, it really puts them off.

Bag sizes: It’s really not cool when you explore your humongous bag for your ATM card or for your parking slip. What’s also not cool is to give him everything to put in his pocket because your cute clutch cannot hold anything. Be practical with the bags you are carrying and accessorize for the occasion. Take a large one for shopping but keep a wallet ready for special stuff.

Body hair: We don’t mean to hurt you, but if you are wearing a midi or anything that reveals your legs, remove body hair. If you haven’t had the time to go waxing, stick to your ankle-length dresses. (The girls in the Fashion101.in office would roll their eyes at this, but hey, I'm telling you the guy's point of view.)

‘Am I looking fat in this?’: Ask your man this question only if you want to break up with him. Whether he tells you the truth or sugar-coats it with a white lie, you’re going to hate him for the rest of his life.
