Do guys judge girls based on their clothes? Since it’s getting warmer out, I’ve stopped wearing tights with my skirts and dresses. Do guys judge a girl if she wears kind of revealing clothes? Or do they just not even notice?
We may not be able to discern Vera Bradley from Juicy Couture (both specialize in tube tops, right?), but all guys notice “revealing.” As I pointed out in a previous post, males are generally more visual creatures who are highly responsive to images. When a girl walks down the street in a super-short skirt and a tight t-shirt, nearly any heterosexual dude will turn and look (or, if he’s with his girlfriend, will do everything in his power not to look). It’s just the way we’re biologically programmed.
But it’s much more difficult to make blanket statements for what guys think when they see a girl in revealing clothes, because it really depends on how conservative, religious, or lascivious (i.e. “horny”) each one is. Sexually suggestive clothing drives some dudes crazy, while others find anything showing even a little bit of skin absolutely abhorent. It all comes down to the fashions a guy finds attractive. (Hey, even Snooki found love, right?)

Obviously he's looking... but is he also judging? |
Individual preferences aside, I do feel that in general, moderation will best help you lure in your love interest. In other words, try to get him imagining without actually revealing much. Subtle hints of womanhood may help to lure him in, but make him work for the privilege of seeing the rest!
However, don’t forget that whatever you wear is ultimately your choice, and you shouldn’t feel you need to dress in any particular way for a guy. Regardless of what turns on one dude versus another, if you stick to wearing what makes you feel comfortable, you’ll often attract the type of person you’re aiming for in the first place. Fashion is one of the most empowering – and certainly the most observable – forms of self-expression, so define yourself as the person you want to be!
