Cool Guys Talk Fashion

Special Offer

The man: Pete Bici, NYC firefighter
The woman: Bridget Hall, model (and Pete's GF of two years)
Trend tested: '50s retro chic, à la Gucci

ON THE TREND: "If I were meeting Bridget for the first time, I'd think she was a brave girl who has fun dressing. This has a great '50s Grease feel but is probably too costumey for most men. Bridget's a natural girl who hangs out in jeans. She'll get dressed up for a night out, but she downplays her beauty."

ON SPENDING: "Why spend big to look good? Sex appeal depends on your attitude."

DREAM WARDROBE: "Like most men, I'd say stiletto heels and lingerie — for wearing around the house, that is. Big hoop earrings are sexy, too. But it's great when women dress outside the box, in something that sparks our interest."

NIGHTMARE WARDROBE: "Anything Britney Spears would wear. Boho tank dresses are only sexy if they're long — midcalf looks terrible. And what's with the furry high boots — even in spring?!"


  • Wear what makes you smile — a happy girl is always hot!
  • Flat shoes only get you around faster — heels are sexy.
  • Novelty dressing can be fun, but not for work.
  • Cheap shoes are nasty. Spend!
