Onesie is named least attractive clothing to wear on a night out
A woman wearing a jumpsuit is the ultimate dating turnoff.
Tell us: Would you wear a onesie on a date?
Word to the wise for women if you plan to go on a date this Valentine’s Day—avoid the onesie and rock a basic black dress instead.
A new study conducted by the British Heart Foundation finds that a onesie is one of the most unattractive items of clothing that a woman can wear on a date.
According to the Daily Mail, more than half of men say a woman wearing a onesie is a complete turn off. In addition, a woman wearing a jumpsuit was labeled the 'ultimate dating turn-off' by 39 percent of men.
Instead, men prefer a little black dress or something basic—52 percent say a simply outfit (like a basic black dress) is most attractive.

Other turn-offs or men when it comes to women’s fashion includes crocs, animal print, and fake fur.
“Our study shows that sometimes the simple things in life are also the best,” says British Heart Foundation’s Polly Shute. “A little black dress makes women feel sexy and men clearly agree women look great in them too.”

Instead of avoiding color and patterns entirely, Shute recommends incorporating them in small doses. “If women do want to brighten things up, putting on a dash of red lipstick, and some red lingerie can really set pulses racing.” But one thing is clear, there is simply no attractive way to pull off a onesie. “It is clear nobody should be seen wearing a onesie in public if they ever want a second date.”

Sunglasses: it may seem counterintuitive to invest in a wintertime accessory traditionally viewed as a sunny, warm-weather item. But spring is on the way and we’re also currently being exposed to crazy amounts of UV rays—and then, of course, there’s the reflective snow situation.

Did anyone else hear wedding bells on the Oscars red carpet last night?
Then after the show, er, Oscars, it's the after party. Then after the party, it's the... Best Dressed List, of course. Nikki already picked her tops for the Academy Awards red carpet (did you vote yet?), so now it's time to see what the stars wore to the post-celebrations.
As I continue my personal campaign to swap out E!'s mani cam with a back-of-updo cam (and as a service to all the hardworking hairstylists who spent so much time creating beautiful hair looks for the 2014 Oscars), I'd like to point out that we miss a lot of gorgeous detail when we don't get the back view of a star's hair.

When someone says “Julia Roberts,” you think teeth. You think hair. But while you may not immediately think fashion, she has had a pretty consistent—and consistently pretty—style since her Mystic Pizza days: clean, classic, menswear-inspired looks that let her natural beauty—and rightly famous smile—take center stage. Here’s how she has elevated that look over the years.
