Does your DH/DP like your fashion sense?

Been browsing a style forum and some (not all) of the women's partners seem to have with very strong opinions on what they like and dislike!

(I am sure the same is in reverse, too)

Is this a dealbreaker, or is there some compromise to be made? I couldn't envisage myself significantly changing anything. I find men with too strong opinions on women's clothing a bit weird.

Don't think mine has much of an opinion either way to be honest! Definitely doesn't care enough to try and change what I wear. He is quite skate boarder-y (at 30!) and out of work, where he has to wear a suit, he just chucks on jeans and a hoodie generally. I'm smarter and tend to wear 'classic' clothes. He bought me some converse ones but that's the extent of his fashion interference smile

I also don't care much what he wears by the way, as long as he feels comfortable and can dress suitably for an occasion (wedding etc)

I don't think OH has much opinion either, but then I don't wear anything that would warrant any comments eg jeans. In saying that, this morning, he did say my shoes didnt match my outfit, but when I changed then he said he'd changed his mind back.

OH does like long hair and mine is in a bob - I don't think long hair would suit me.

My DH is a bit of a fashion victim follower himself, so takes an interest in what I wear.

He won't try to change what I wear but will give an opinion if I have a choice to make. Which can be helpful - I can dither for ages when getting dressed to go out.

My partner is generally very complimentary about what I wear, but there are particular things he absolutely hates - for example, anything with any sort of animal print. If he said he thought something was ill-fitting or unflattering I'd generally take it on board, but am not especially fussed when he calls me "Bet Lynch" if I'm dressed in leopard print!

Mine doesn't have a damned clue.
He doesn't understand fashion AT ALL, and he has no taste. I cringe when he buys me presents to wear.
His mother is the same and keeps trying to give me her cast offs. She's thirty years older than me and dresses it.

I look 'fine' apparently, no matter what I wear or why I'm asking hmm

I don't think he notices much unless I'm dressed up to go out in which case he usually pays a compliment. But I think he notices the extra attention I've taken with my make up and hair rather more than what I'm wearing tbh.

DH generally likes what I wear. I'm not fashionable as such, I just wear what I like. So does he. He has, on occasion, said he doesn't think something woukd suit me - I usually agree, so I don't buy it. He notices what I'm wearing but recognises that I have my own mind & preferences & that I don't generally dress to please him.

Sorry for rubbish typing!

Yes, apparently I look cool. He would probably like it if I wore dresses more often but it always seems to be too windy!
We're spent a lot of our spare time together judging other peoples outfits. We're lovely people. wink

My oh would like me in mini skirts. I have neither the legs nor the inclination.

My DP particularly dislikes it if I wear a pair of black, floppy jersey trousers for lounging about the house in. They're fairly inoffensive, and v comfy but not scruffy. No idea why he objects so much. He wears jogging bottoms sometimes which I think are worse.
Otherwise, he doesn't much comment so I don't really know. I might ask for the hell of it.
