What at all is “attractiveness?”
Men and women can find themselves attracted to someone simply because of that person’s mannerisms, personality, or even clothing. That initial impression determines whether that person seems attractive or not. But the odd thing is that what strikes one person as attractive will seem unattractive to someone else.
A study from the year prior discovered a strong contemporary association between high heels and female sexuality. The unique swagger that comes from walking in heels causes men to find women more attractive, apparently. After viewing videos of women walking in both heels and flat shoes, the participants in the study rated the heel-wearing women as significantly more attractive.
Why is reading so attractive? Books lead to discussions. Also, your taste in books can highlight aspects of your personality — are you curious, romantic, dreamy? By sharing your tastes you can show and share your inner world.
A simple sundress
Dresses are almost always looser and less constricting than pants or a skirt. Sundresses are sexy because they are effortless and give off a girl-next-door vibe. It’s as simple as a silhouette with movements. Men praise the summer attire for being everything from “classy” to “figure-flattering” to “feminine.” Yeah, sundresses are pretty great.
Perfume, but not just any kind
Beauty is also in the nose and ear of the beholder. It may sound a little out there, but our sense of smell seems to have a lot to do with how we assess attractiveness. Our noses can even recognize family members through their body odour. Apparently human noses have the ability to assess things like fertility, health, diet, age, and personality. Luscious, fruity notes are disarming but attractive. Edible odours tend to increase male arousal.
Men are more attracted to women who wear the bold colour. A study conducted by researchers in Germany found that young women were perceived as “more sexually attractive” when seated against a red background than one that was white. Interestingly, the study pointed out that “men are not aware of this red effect.” It seems to be completely subconscious.
As part of a study conducted by psychologists at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, participants were asked to view and rate female faces with three styles of makeup: minimal, moderate, and dramatic. The researchers found that each type had “significant positive effects” on attractiveness, as well as likability, competence, and trustworthiness. Men found women who were wearing minimal makeup more attractive so a more natural look makes you appear more attractive to others.
A bodycon dress
A 2009 study revealed that men found a woman’s hip-to-waist ratio as more alluring than — wait for it — the size of her breasts. Since the bodycon dress quite literally contours to your body and shows off your hip-to-waist ratio, it’s practically the outfit to wear if you’re looking to attract some male attention. And while some dudes may prefer a “slim waist,” any woman of any size can rock a bodycon while looking downright fabulous.
The colour black might have connotations of death, gloom, and forest gateaux, but it’s a powerful performer in the eyes of the public, who see it as a serious, reliable and solid player, ideal for interviews and first dates. Furthermore, a lot of people found black to be the colour of “confidence.
Much of the attraction actually depends on the glasses. Of course, whether you decide to wear chunky frames, rimless eyewear, or anything in between is totally up to you. It doesn’t have to come down to what men consider to be attractive. It’s also worth noting that what’s hot in eyewear today may change tomorrow, so picking a style you genuinely like is often the best bet.
