Here at Stylit, we just completed a survey to learn who most women turn to for fashion advice. It turns out that a whopping 88% of women depend on fashion advice from their friends.
It makes sense, we tend to pick friends with similar taste and we trust their opinions However, it’s important to choose your circle of fashion friends carefully. Here are a few signs that you’re not getting the best style tips from your buds.
1) Everything Is a Thumbs Up
If everytime you ask your friend, “how do I look?” the answer is positive, chances are she’s not being honest.
On the outside, she’s like:
While on the inside, she’s thinking:
2) She’s Competitive
Some women are obviously competitive. They’re not hard to spot as they always have to one-up you. But sometimes your girlfriends may be passively competing with you. Be sure they’re not setting you up!
3) Your Friend is a Shopaholic
Although this can also be favorable to your main style advisor, if your friend typically goes crazy in her own shopping habits, she may not have a refined sense of what looks to invest in.
4) Your Friend Only Shops High-End
All of us enjoy a few fashion splurges now and again, but if your friend swears on Vogue as her fashion bible, you might want to take her fashion advice with a grain of salt and do your wallet a favor.
5) She’s More Concerned with How She Looks
Shopping trips with girlfriends are always much more fun than alone. But, if you feel like you’re only there as a prop, you may not be getting the best fashion feedback.
Of course we’re joking! Your friends will always steer you towards fashion they believe is best for you. That is what friends are for after all.
