Do you care if girls have good style?

I have always wondered if guys even notice if girls have good style or try hard to have a put-together or fashionable look. Do you guys care? (asking personal opinions) If you do pay attention to that, is there anything you especially like?

I think for me I care more about not having bad style versus a good one. In other words, it's easy for me to notice bad style and not much good style.

To an extent, yes I care that a girl be dressed nice. I shouldn't be better dressed than my lady, and I'm not really into fashion but do have a look. I don't buy clothes more than once every 12-18 months to give you some context.
 

There are also styles I don't personally care for but they are more extreme like for example all black, goth chic. Also, if you dress like a hobo who just got brand new clothes at Goodwill, that's a no-go for me. This is unfortunately a popular style in coastal cities, especially the Bay Area.

No aslong as she does not dress inappropriately for the situation, her sense of style is extremely minor compared to everything else (personality, compatibility, how attractive she is physically etc)

Yes - there are levels to style, and anyone I would even think of dating has to understand how to be fashionable. A lot of girls will just rock the Gucci belt with jeans nowadays and an LV bag. I don't mind this look if she's hot, but it's pretty basic and the majority of these girls can't afford to reasonably buy this stuff anyway. Sundresses are hot but they have to fit right. Ripped jeans are hot but not when they're more holes than actual pant material. Girls who can switch it up are hot. No interest in girls who go out to bars basically naked - there are ways to dress slutty that aren't trashy

What does good style even mean for women? That she owns the buy it for life staples? Sounds good to me as long as it's her money paying for it because womens designer clothing is absolutely overpriced for what it is and unfortunately there are few artisanal alternatives capable of competing with the major womens fashion houses.

Besides the top of the line products womens fashions is an absolute carousel of bullshit. Zara, HM and all of the other fast fashion brands that most women wear are pretty shit quality clothing. As long as her clothes fit well, aren't dirty or old, and she takes care of her body so that she looks presentable in them its all good. It would drive me absolutely nuts if I knew my girl was spending tons of money every year to try and stay up to date on trends.

Tldr: Unless she can afford to be decked out in made to measure designer and shes paying for it, it doesnt matter because accessible womens fashion is overpriced garbage.

There's a range. We are not going to analyze your outfit but it is part of your general appearance. If your style trends toward timeless and flattering quality pieces you will look good.

Crop top and varsity jacket, loose sweater with white collared shirt and dunk lows all look great on girls imo

tbh most guys don't actually think about what exactly you're wearing but if your outfit looks good then it looks good and that's attractive
