We’re guessing that many of you will have been down at the pub when a debate kicks off about why women dress a certain way, whether it’s always to please men, please themselves or show off in front of their mates (or secret answer d. all of the above)

Well we’re not psychologists, so can’t give you a definitive answer, but whether guys play a role in how women dress or not, it’s pretty clear some sartorial choices that are really popular among womenkind really REALLY irritate some men.

We conducted a study (OK, so we asked our Facebook and Twitter mates) into which style choices women make that really get to blokes and as you’d expect there’s some of the usual suspects, some surprise appearances and some that were just far too explicit to include.

Men, prepare to get agitated and angry, women, do whatever you like and never feel like you have to throw away those old UGGs that smell like wet dogs just to please a guy…

Thanks to everyone who got back to us, we’ve included some of your quotes throughout the gallery, but do let us know in the comments below if there are any we’ve missed out.

5. Anything that makes you look like an animal

Well this one surprised me, because I've been known to put on that, "I'm a cute sad puppy" face to get some attention. But it seems the cute, sad, puppy face is one thing, but actually looking like a member of the animal kingdom is a totally different story. Men got in touch with us and told us that one of their top pet hates (sorry), was when women wear little hats and scarves and things that make them look like animals. So you looking like a cat/panda/zebra/insert cuddly animal here apparently only makes you look adorable for 2.5 seconds, then it's just ridiculous and a bit creepy. We also imagine the thought of getting naked with you massively diminishes when you start to remind that guy of his family pet. The same seems to go for animal print, because again, you look too much like something from a safari trip AND Katie Price's settee at the same time, one lady told us, "animal print. My boyfriend can't even look at it without wrenching a little".
