If you don't seem to be making the right kind of impression on the ladies, you may need to take a look in the mirror. Some clothes are just women repellents. Here's what we recommend you ditch immediately:

The deep V

Guys who have a penchant for low cut shirts should remember one thing — leave the cleavage to the ladies. While we are all for equal opportunity, no woman wants to go on a date with a guy who is rocking a décolletage that's more show stopping than hers. A smaller V-neck is acceptable and if you must show off your chest (sigh), wear a looser button down shirt with a few buttons open.

Drop crotch pants

While women like some things to be left to the imagination, the area your torso ends and your legs begin is not one of them. Subtle drop crotch pants on the beach or when relaxing at home are great and can look cute, but women cannot stand hip-hop bright coloured ones. Add a funky drawstring and unless you're Kanye West, good luck getting a girl to notice you. Also, you're a grown man, buy real pants.

Socks with sandals

When you're four, this look is super cute. Thirtyfour, not so much. Socks are the ultimate woman repellant and fashion wise, it doesn't make sense either. If your feet are feeling so cold that you need to wear socks, just wear shoes, dude. The thing that can push this over the edge and make women scream as you approach — pulled up socks with sandals.

Boxers as shorts

Women hate this so much that we have actually seen some roll down car windows to inform men that their boxers are not shorts and that please, could they go home and put on some clothes.

Boxers are underwear. Period. No matter how much you want the world to see your Spongebob print, ladies do not want to see your square pants. And for god's sake, they are not swimwear either.

The Y front

This underwear should be renamed Y-wouldyou-wear-this front. If you do manage to get a lady to come home with you, let's hope you're not wearing tighty whiteys. Women find this so offputting.

Why? Because unless they are fresh out the box, chances are they are not quite as white as they should be. Secondly, leave some things to the imagination. On the positive note, boxers are perfectly acceptable at this point.
