Do Guys Prefer Dressed Up or Dressed Down?

September 14, 2009

I browsed through the Cosmopolitan Philippines site just now and got caught by this interesting article published under Style and Fashion. It was a very short one. In fact, it only featured guys’ responses to that very intriguing question, “Do Guys Prefer Dressed Up or Dressed Down?”. Click here to see the actual article.

And here are the responses:

Dressed Up:

Jay Jay, Vocalist/Guitarist (Bloomfields)
“I prefer girls who know how to dress well. I think they’d look really attractive.”

Birdie, Product Manager
“Dressed up girls are better eye candies.”

Paco, 30, ENT Head And Neck Surgeon
“I prefer dressed up girls because I like girls who have a lot of class and style.”

Patrick, 26, Project Manager
“Dressed up. It highlights their figure and it gives them a classy, elegant look.”

Arvi, 35, Businessman
“Dressed up. We prefer that they look good when in public with us.”

Dan, 30, Businessman
“Dressed up. It highlights their taste and class and they look more sophisticated.”

Dressed Down:

Wesley, 31, Customer Development Team Leader
“Dressed down girls—they’re low maintenance but still sexy.”

Mari, 24, Marketing Executive
“Dressed down…the simpler the better.”

Jon, 27, Self-Employed
“Dressed down. It’s the one who wears the simplest clothes and makes it look like a million bucks [that] attracts me most.”

James, Project Manager
“Dressed down, because you know how they look when not exerting too much effort…you see the real them.”

Female readers, kindly take note, ok?! LOL. 

As for me though, I’m most of the time in the dressed-down arena. I like being in comfy jeans and polo shirt. Aad if I’m way too tired to look for clothes to wear, I just put on a simple shirt and shorty shorts matched with a pair of flip-flop sandals… in short, mukha akong nakapambahay. Hehehe! People would normally see me in that outfit when heading to the supermarket or just making a quick trip to the mall. 

But I wanna know what my male readers have to say. Is it really…

You choose! LOL.

    dress down. para kita ang tunay na ganda. baka kase ‘yong damit lang ang maganda kaya napapatingin sa kanya. haha

    kapag dressdown kase, makikita mo sya as she is. natural na natural. mahilig kase ako sa organic. hehe

    hmmm… 3rd voter for dressed down si ka eli😛

    • September 16, 2009 12:35 am

      teka, syempre depende yan sa okasyon-may mga pagkakataon syempre na kailangang dressup. kung mamamasyal lang sa mol o kaya maglalakad sa kalye (haha) mas okay tingnan para sa akin ang dressdown.

  7. September 15, 2009 2:58 am

    alvin bautista: handsome blogger… (walang pakialamanan…)

    “I prefer girls na alam kung anong babagay sa okasyon, napakalaking factor nung hindi na masyadong namomroblema para lang sa isusuot, yung tipong kahit ano lang bagay na, mala jolina magdangal ang datingan”

    pero pag sayo winkie kahit ano bagay. toinkz

    i would say dapat ang dress mo ay appropriate sa event at comfortable ka.

    mas sexy ka, ressie!🙂

    i agree to that. dapat fitting for the ocassion. kaso minsan, i see some girls all dressed up when strolling inside the mall. ung tipong ganda-gandahan ng damit at naka-high heels with accessories and all. i can picture myself wearing like that while malling.🙂

  17. September 15, 2009 3:03 pm

    re your survey: i like the dressed up winkie more.

    for me, mas gusto ko naka-dress down. kasi naman extremes ang weather dito sa pilipinas. either its too damn hot or its raining and baha everywhere.

    so a simple black v-neck shirt, chucks and pair of jeans works for me even on a daily basis.

    hmmm i’ll try to dress up more often nga🙂

    actually, thats the main reason why i’m a dressed-down kinda girl. ibang level ang climate dito sa tin.

  21. September 16, 2009 1:28 am

    uy uy uy, as usual, late na namann ako, hehehe..

    gusto ko tong topic na to, hehehe…

    tama sila, nasa pagdadala yan, pero mas gusto ko parin ng dress down, ung simple pero malakas ang dating, low maintenance at mabilis gumayak! hahaha…

    para nmn sa yo ms. tinkie winkie, sabi nga ni bon, win-win situation! kahit up or down panalo parin!

    *ganyan din ako, front lang ang topic, gusto lang talgang magpost ng pics, bwahahaha!

    If only they included Dressed Off on the choices.hehehe Or maybe they have a whole new survey about it.

    Dress On vs. Dress Off… =P

    Kidding aside, Dress Down… kasi pag Dressed Up ung girl, you don’t know if it’s the dress or the girl anymore… If dressed down ung girl, and you are still interested, then it definitely is about the girl…

    If you can pull it off dressed down, imagine what you can do dressed up. =)

    ay timangkey, cosmo ung magazine not FHM. hehehe!

    i share the same idea about dressing down. tsaka kasi when the time comes that there’s a need to dress up, at least dressed-down kinda girls will definitely wow the people. diba diba?😛
