Boys tell us what they really think about female fashion trends

“Can’t say no to a crop top, unless she’s sporting a full-blown pouch”

The boys

Ali, a second year Economics student. Describes his ideal match as a little classy;  perfection would be a blond and blue eyed Scandinavian.

Alec, a second year Philosophy student. Usually goes for Mediterranean girls, but says personality is more important then looks. He wants someone to keep him on his toes, and has a soft spot for “proper girly-girls”.

Ryan, a second year Medical student. Would love to find himself an “Instagram gym spice, with arms of a greek goddess and wash board abs”.

Ali: “Much love for these. Beats the dressing gown any day.”

Alec: “She’s wearing a dressing gown! Is that a dressing gown? It’s a bit flakey, too baggy for my liking.”

Ryan: “A bit saucy…don’t mind a classic dressing gown either.”

Ali: “Pretty shit to be honest.. but some girls can rock them.”

Alec: “What is that? Get that out of my face, that is so edgy. If my missus whacks on a bucket hat, its over!”

Ryan: “If she wants to look like a fucking fisherman then fair play.”

Baggy jeans

Ali: “Quite simply, look crap.”

Alec: “They should be banned and shouldn’t be allowed in the shops.”

Ryan: “Fat boy jeans.”

Ripped jeans

Ali: “Just why not normal jeans? Looks like she met someone with a knife and knee fetish.”

Alec: “I don’t really see the point in ripping them, why are you ripping them..!?”

Ryan: “As long as they’re not bloody fat boy jeans.”

Ali: Maybe two years ago, or on a boss skier.”

Alec: “People just buy them to wear to Motion… I’m not having it.”

Ryan: “Goes well with a guide dog and walking stick.”

Ali: “What’s not to love?”

Alec: “If you’ve got a good bum you can pull them off…”

Ryan: “Flexible, soft and tight…just how I like my women.”

Model: Amelia Alston

But don’t worry girls! If you don’t like what they have to say, (I myself was a little hurt by the ripped jeans comments) Ali, Alec and Ryan do not get to dictate what anyone actually wears. And they were obviously joking.
