I was stood in H&M the other day waiting to try something on (I hate queuing for changing rooms but that’s another story..). While I was waiting I could see a girl holding up an item of clothing to her husband/boyfriend and asking him what he thought of it. Which again got me thinking about the general consensus with women taking style/fashion advice from a guy. Now I don’t mean a professional, such as an image consultant or someone that works in the fashion industry but rather just your average guy. So would you take advice from your boyfriend or husband? Or do you just ask them their opinion on clothes to be polite? If they did say they didn’t like something would that seriously put you off buying it, even if you did like it?
My girlfriend generally asks my opinion on items when she buys them, I’ll always chip in my 2 cents but I’m not sure if my opinion would actually sway her from actually buying it if she really liked the item. I have however seen plenty of cases where if a woman’s husband or boyfriend hasn’t liked what she was intending to buy she’s not bought it. This used to be particularly frustrating when working towards sales targets in retail. The lady would all in love with those Louboutin’s only for her husband to kill the dream by saying he didn’t like them. I personally think it was a ploy for him not to shell out a wad of cash on them.. but anyway..
I’d love to open it up to my lovely lady readers
Do you take fashion advice from men?
Would their opinion stop you from buying something you liked?
