Winter Turn On's and Turn Off's

It’s officially the dead of winter, but that doesn’t mean your cold weather style has to be lackluster as well. We asked our Match.com members what winter attire of the opposite sex turns them on, and which garb they should leave in the mud room when heading out on a date. Gents, do you often find yourself growing out your facial scruff from No-shave-mber to mid March? Ladies, can you often be seen tromping through snow in a puff coat that looks like you moonlight as the Abominable Snowman? Find out if your winter-wear trends have you exciting or frightening your dates:

    I dunno….I like me a man in earmuffs. And toboggan hats are very Holden Caulfield-chic.

    “Scarves make him swoon: 88% of men said they’d be “very or somewhat turned on” by a *man* (?!?!) who sported a scarf on a date” — typo?

    I shave my legs.

    I like what John S said. I think one should try to look good at all times,
    but it is very important to dress for the weather. You can dress well
    every time and still be warm. Someone is always going to either like or
    dislike something. Please yourself, while trying to look good is the way
    to good. It never hurts to listen to how others feel. Be yourself, and the
    right person will come along and accepts you.

    Don’t know how to go back and correct. What I meant was to say:
    Please yourself, while trying to look good is the way to GO. C!
