Beyonce Knowles said it in her song: ‘Partner let me upgrade u, flip a new page, introduce u to some new things’ and now a new study has found that a high percentage of women admit to trying to change their partner's style since they started dating.
The study conducted by MyVoucherCodes.co.uk found that 55% of people admitted to trying to change their partner's style, with the majority being women, Female First website reported.
And it only took women 8.2 weeks to accomplish this, whilst men took a little longer at 5.5 months.
The women admitted that they had tried to get their partners to: 1. Wear more fashionable clothing, 2. Wear more expensive clothing and 3. Wear smarter clothing.
While the men either wanted their partners to wear less or more revealing clothes and more designer labels.
However not all partners liked the idea of being ‘upgraded’; according to the survey 41%, of those who had attempted to change their man/woman admitted that their partner ‘didn’t agree with their suggestions;’ whilst 33%, claimed that their partner was ‘happy to receive their guidance.’
“Someone’s fashion style can be a huge part of who they are, but we wanted to see how it’s perceived in a relationship, and whether or not our ‘other halves’ ever try to change it. To see that so many people have tried to mould their other half’s style was interesting; and it seems that women are much more guilty of this than men, said study conductor Mark Pearson, Chairman of MyVoucherCodes.co.uk”
