When I first got into style blogging, I often asked my husband Aaron for his opinion on my outfits and any style inspiration I had bookmarked. It often ended in a game of “He Said, She Said” and lots of laughter because we have vastly different tastes when it comes to women’s clothing. Not surprisingly, he can be pretty clueless. When I tried to nail down exactly what it is that he liked, he told me that there was a woman at church that he always thought was well-dressed. The woman WAS well dressed, but she was also in her mid-50s … He’s come a long way since then, but our opinions still rarely align.
Aaron works from home and thus doesn’t have much exposure to women’s fashion beyond what I wear. Showing him these pictures was a bit like trying to explain current trends to an alien. I had to break down crop tops. He could not grasp the concept of a romper. He liked the overalls, until I covered up the (very pretty) model’s head. I’ve heard it said that women dress for other women, NOT for men. Seeing how my husband responded to these trends makes me much more inclined to believe that’s true!
