Cupid’s Advice:

Often times one person in a relationship has more fashion sense than the other.  Cupid has some ideas to help you deal:

1. Let the minor things go: If you have something to say about what your partner is wearing each and every time he steps out of the house, it’s bound to lead to some disagreements.  Choose your fights carefully.  Only speak up if your mate is truly wearing something you cannot tolerate in public.

2. Positive encouragement: Fashion is a way to express yourself.  By controlling what your partner wears, you’re taking away some of his personal expression.  Try peppering your criticisms with positive encouragement.  “Honey, I really like the graphic tee you have on, but would you mind wearing your black blazer with it?”

3. Compromise: It’s a given that you won’t always see eye-to-eye with your partner.  If you don’t agree with his fashion choice, politely ask him if he will change.  Don’t go choose a new outfit for him.  By putting the ball in his court, he feels like he still has some sense of style control.
