A Man's View of Women's Attire

Although I sometimes complain about the volume and complexity of my wife's wardrobe (as compared to my own, that is) ... I'll stipulate that there is probably a time and place for most (maybe even all) of the various women's attire categories listed below. 

But based on my first-hand observations, as well as surreptitious eavesdropping on conversations and compliments that women give to one another, I'd have to say that the holy grail of women's fashion - regardless of occasion - seems to be to look 'cute'.

Cute- that is a word that I think of as being like a utility player in baseball. It does everything well but nothing great.

I'd settle for something that FITS and isn't black (the Kiwi national colour that everyone loves wearing except me).

Makes sense. Even the blue hairs seem to try for "cute" in their choice of clothing. A sort of aging cute.

Naughty seems entirely too small for my liking! ;-)

I know I'm late to the party for a week... but please define "cute"?

a... I never said I knew what it was. I just hear women using the term so often that it seems to be the primary goal.
