STYLE GIRLFRIEND’S FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What did you go to school for?
In college, I double majored in political science and public relations with a minor in French. Yes, I was a nerd. And no, I can’t speak a lick of French anymore.
2. Then…what makes you qualified to give fashion advice?
I think fashion is very different from style. I don’t have a formal education in fashion, and I don’t pretend to be an expert on clothes, but I know what I like on guys, and I’m happy to tell them in a positive, constructive way. A lot of ladies out there, including well-meaning girlfriends and wives, can’t bring themselves to do the same. That’s where I come in.
3. I’m a dude. I’m not into “fashion.” I just want to look good.
Well, first of all, that’s not really a question. But I’ll respond anyway.
I think for everyone, but guys especially, “fashion” can seem really overwhelming - like you have to keep up on every single brand and know what all the celebs are wearing in Us Weekly. And certainly, fashion is about keeping up on trends that change and evolve from season to season.
Style, on the other hand, is about making a statement to the world about who you are. You can express your style through the clothes you wear, but also through the way you live your life - where you travel, the relationships you have, the books you read, the way you treat people. I think to live a stylish life is to live with intention. That might be wearing the perfect v-neck white t-shirt that sits just so on your shoulders, or choosing to cook a real dinner on the stove instead of popping something in the microwave.
4. Is all the content on the site your own?
Yes, unless otherwise marked (like with photos I find on other sites) all the content is my own.
5. How do you deal with ads and sponsors?
I will always be upfront when a post is sponsored. Moreover, I won’t take on any sponsors that I don’t believe in. If I wouldn’t recommend the brand to my brother or a boyfriend, I won’t put it on Style Girlfriend.
6. What should I / How should I ____ ?
If you’ve got a specific style question, shoot me an email at megan (at) stylegirlfriend (dot) com, and I’d be happy to help. If you don’t have any objections, your question might end up in the mailbag as a Style Girlfriend column! Because if you don’t know the answer, then there’s probably a ton of other guys who don’t either.
7. What’s your favorite look on a guy?
When he’s smiling right at me.
