1. What do women love to wear but men hate?

    Mindy Kaling tells us in the Fresh Air interview:

    I have found it to be true that men tend to not understand or like sequins very much. Men don’t like the wedge shoe, I have noticed. Men don’t like the statement necklace or chunky, tribal jewelry. These are all the things, by the way, that I love, so the overlap in the Venn diagram of things that men hate for women to wear, and things that I love to wear, is almost full overlap… which is unfortunate for me…

    Like most women, I dress for other women. If I was going to dress for men, in general, I would just be wearing a fitted black T-shirt and tight jeans every day. Of course, this is my unscientific research done by working with male comedy writers for the past eight years. They just tend to really like — this specific group of guys — really simple, clean lines, things like that, but I don’t. So I dress for women, I wear all of those things, because I like looking at it. It makes me feel happy and excited to wear it.

    In the spirit of light-hearted cultural commentary, have anything to add to Mindy’s list? Or what about the things men love to wear that women hate?
