14 Things Women Think Are Cute That Actually Turn Men Off

They say that opposites attract, but when it comes to the opposite sex each is attracted to different things. While there are many staples in a woman’s arsenal of looking good for the fellas (as much as for herself) not all of them end up hitting their intended mark. Sure other women might ooh and ah over your latest shopping spree find that is oh-so-cute, but the average man likely won’t even bat an eye let alone notice. Even worse, most men might even hate the item and actually find it unattractive. What’s a girl to do? Don’t worry we tapped the brain of our resident StyleBlazer Manto compile a list of 14 things women think are cute but most men actually hate. Be prepared to be surprised.

Floppy Sun Hats

They may be the headgear of choice for your fun in the sun getaways during the summer or while on vacation, but most men just don’t get it. Are you having a bad hair day or was this the precursor to Pharrell’s Vivienne Westwood fetish? Either way, if you’re not a fan of his big brimmed hat, why would a man be into yours?

Excessive Bracelets

While accessories are the cornerstones of any woman’s fashion game, there is such a thing as doing too much. One or two bracelets are cool but anything beyond that is a bit redundant, especially when a woman stacks her wrists with a never-ending pile of bangles that incessantly clang against each other creating a sound that drives every man crazy—and not in a good way.

Cheetah Print

What woman doesn’t have this popular animal print adorning some item in her closet or drawer? Problem is while most ladies will swoon over their faux-fur couture pattern, the average man doesn’t really care that much.

Hello Kitty

This cartoon cat that has gone on to adorn everything from clothing and jewelry to backpacks and phone cases—even some ladies’ skin in the form of a tattoo. Sorry, men will never understand a grown woman’s obsession with Hello Kitty. But I guess we’re even because women will never get men’s fascination with sports either.

Shoes… You Can’t Walk In

Why so many women put footwear fashion before their own comfort is beyond a man’s comprehension. You might look good standing still, but if every step you take makes it look like you’re walking on a water bed no bueno. Just because BeyoncĂ© says pretty hurts, doesn’t mean it has to.

Ugg Boots

Sure, they me be comfortable but there’s no (straight) man alive who would say Uggs are cute—especially after they’ve been worn to the point of turning a disgusting multi-colored shade. Sorry, Uggs are just, well, ugly.

Gladiator Sandals

Like Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben told him, “With great power comes great responsibility.” The same applies to women with big feet: you have a responsibility to not accentuate that by wearing a pair of these Air Xenas. Besides that, gladiator sandals just look like an impractical piece of footwear that takes hours to put on. No wonder so many women are late to get anywhere on time.

Palazzo Pants

No clue who Palazzo is but he sure can make an ugly pair of pants. These exaggerated super-bellbottoms looks like hell to walk in as a heel can likely get caught in these overflowing slacks. The only possible functional reason for these would be to cover up a pair of the aforementioned gladiator sandals.

A Dark Lip

While this has been accepted in Goth circles for some time now, dark lipstick hues have become all the rage in more mainstream circles. It might be just a personal preference but kissing a woman who reminds you of Beetlejuice is never a turn on.

High-Waisted Jeans

This is just a look that is not for everyone. High-waisted jeans in the wrong hands (or waist rather) can be an unsightly vision that only works to highlight flat backsides and accentuate pooches. If you’re the owner of either, please opt for a better pair of pants. Thank me later.

Excessive Key Chain Trinkets

Men have come up with two theories as to why some women have an overabundance of trinkets attached to their keys: 1) It’s some sort of way to easily find their keys in the sea of other unnecessary items they stuff into their purses that they probably won’t ever need but carry around with them just in case 2) Key chains just multiply like rabbits when left in a woman’s bag too long. While No. 1 is the more likely reason, No. 2 at least is more funny to think about.

From Clueless to Mean Girls these miniature canines have been the go-to accessory pet of countless socialite types—both real and fictional. Despite the pooch’s popularity it’ll never be a breed that fits the model of being labeled man’s best friend.

Duck Face Selfies

Okay, technically this is not an item or accessory, but women still think this practice is cute. But the proof is in the pudding. You. Look. Stupid. What happened to the good ol’ days when people simply smiled in pictures instead of subconsciously trying to look like Daffy or Donald.

These furry creatures are just creepy, man. They sneak around the house and always pop up when you least expect them to. The only thing worse to a man than a woman with a cat, is a woman with more than one. Think about it: Have you ever heard a guy use the word sexy to describe a “cat lady?” #CaseClosed
