Eight outfits men love on women (9 PICS)

Sometimes the hardest outfit to put together is one that's interesting but not too interesting— something that's on-trend enough to impress judgy friends but not so fashion-forward it flies right over boys' heads (harem pants, shoulder pads and denimtuxedos come to mind).

From sweatpants to beachwear tococktail dresses, these eight outfits fall right in that sweet spot. Neither costume-y nor too classic and conservative, they'll keep everyone happy...but most importantly YOU.
He'll like the high hemline, while you'll like the graphic print-mixing and perfectly oversize clutch.
