Look, if you want to attract the ladies, you’re going to need to boost your sex appeal. You may not like it, but let’s face it, men and women are vain creatures sometimes, and the best way to get your foot in the door with the ladies is catching their eye.
You may be a smooth talker or super intelligent, but you’ll have to catch their eye first to get your foot in the door, before you can schmooze them with your words. It’s time to ditch your old style and ring in a new era of sex appeal.
1. Get a New Suit
Nothing will turn your confidence up like a new suit. Find one that fits well and does your body type justice – a skinny suit might be super trendy right now, but if you have more of an athletic build, you’ll want a little give in your jacket and pants to avoid looking like a stuffed sausage.
A suit is a symbol of status and luxury that, if worn properly, will boost your overall attractiveness ten fold. There are many different ways to wear a suit too. Learn a cool tie knot and wear a suit to dinner
Wear one without a tie and you just got a little less professional, but much more sexy. Sometimes you can even get away with untucking your dress shirt to boost sex appeal even higher. However, don’t try this for your business meeting, keep it professional. A full suit and tie is critical for business because it demonstrates power and professionalism. The full suit and tie is more classy than having your shirt untucked or no tie, but nonetheless sexy. You’ll be breaking necks as you stroll down the street. Try this Kenneth Cole Suit for a slim fit that’s not too skinny but not too banker-baggy either.
Next, you’ll need to focus on smelling great too. Combining the suit with a great cologne will take your attractiveness up another notch. When you find a cologne that you like and start to wear it consistently, women that you are around will pick up on that scent and always associate you with it. You could go out to the bars in shorts and a tee shirt and still have amazing sex appeal as long as you smell like a million bucks. Don’t overdo the cologne though. Only people in your immediate vicinity or passing by should smell you, not from across the room. Also, try to stay away from colognes that are too sweet or pungent. You want to walk around smelling like a man, not a middle school boy with his first bottle of Axe. Try this popular choice.
3. Fresh Hair Cut
No one ever felt worse after a fresh hair cut. Even just getting your neck trimmed and having your sideburns touched up will make you look refreshed and awake and way more put together. That in turn allows you to be more confident. You can get the suit and the cologne, but you’ll still look like a scrub if your hair is a mess. That goes for facial hair too. Clean shave it unless you got something serious like a beard going on, in which case you can edge it up to look more sharp.
You don’t have to spend money on pricey salon visits either. This Remington shaver lets you cut your own hair (or touch it up) from home. The portable design fits comfortably in the palm of your hand so you can easily reach the back of your head, neckline and around your ears. The stainless steel blades are sharp but safe (I.e. they won’t cut or tug on your skin), and this kit comes with nine different comb lengths to suit every hairstyle.
Watches are timeless. They will never get old or stop looking super sleek on a sharp dressed man. Adding a watch to your arsenal of style is a worthy investment. There are plenty of styles out there so make sure you get one that fits your aesthetic. The brown or black leather bands are always a great casual look, but getting one with a gold band is more luxurious and draws an eye. Thick faces are more loud and could be a statement piece, while the thinner watches lie flatter to your wrist and can look very slick. Check out this Citizen Eco-Drive watch, which falls somewhere in the middle. It’s got a sophisticated dual-metal band and a medium size watch face. We like the gold trim, which adds a touch of class without being annoying. An outdoorsy guy? This watch is also water-resistant up to 330 feet.
5. Soup Up Your Car
Your car is the final and most important weapon in your arsenal. There is an undeniable link between cars and sex appeal. For years, one of the sexiest and fastest cars on the road has been the Corvette.
I recently got a chance to test drive the new Corvette Z06, and let me tell you, getting behind the wheel of this classic American sportscar is unlike any other drive you’ll have. The deep rumble of the engine every time you touch the accelerator is riveting. It’s fast beyond your imagination and handles how it should, like a top tier performance sports car. Taking it up the California coast, it handled the sweeping curves with ease, and navigated the unpredictable terrain without any unexpected bumps. The ride was smooth and surprisingly comfortable for such a low-profile vehicle.
If you’re going to get the Corvette, get the whole package (think: supercharged 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque). Bells and whistles include leather seats, a premium Bose audio system, and a carbon-fiber and sueded microfiber-wrapped steering wheel. I liked the yellow color more than I expected, as it gave the car a sharp, sporty appeal without feeling too over-the-top.
Chevy has been making the Corvette since the mid 1950s, and it’s now considered one of the iconic sportscars, not just in America, but in the entire world. And yet, despite its big presence and bravado, it’s actually a really accessible car these days, both in terms of price-point and the types of people getting behind the wheel. It’s got speed and power if that’s what you like, but it’s also graceful and sophisticated if you want it to be. And for me, it was the perfect road trip car, with the top down and coastal breeze in our hair during the day, and with headlights on and sound system blasting at night.
After driving it for a week, the most noticeable difference is how others react to you. From raising eyebrows at the gas station, to having the vehicles willing move out of the fast lane for you to pass, to being approached multiple times for conversation regarding it’s appeal, the Corvette is just a really fun car to drive. Actually, it’s more than a drive — it’s an entire experience. And yes, when it comes to exuding sex appeal, it’s got that going for it too. The Chevy Corvette is perfect for getting a second look — and hopefully getting you a date.
