Only one-fifth of women consider themselves fashionable
Study finds low percentage of women classify themselves as fashion-savvy.
“As December is often a very fashionable month, filled to the brim with various Christmas parties, we were interested to find out whether or not British women considered themselves fashionable and the various lengths they go to update their style,” said Mark Pearson, Chairman of MyVoucherCodes.co.uk. “Whilst the majority of respondents said they were interested in fashion and often changed their look and style to stay current, it came as a bit of a surprise to discover that only 19 percent of British women believed that they were truly fashionable and stylish.”
A new study reveals that not many women actually consider themselves fashionable. The research experiment, conducted by www.MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, polled more than 2,000 British women from ages 18-30 on topics including their shopping habits and opinions on their own style.
The results conclude that only 19 percent of women say would classify themselves as 'fashionable'.

But although many women don’t think they are fashionable, they are still spending the cash to try to get there. “What is slightly troubling about the results is the fact that many respondents admitted that they went into debt to look good and, even worse, some said that they spent over £300 staying trendy,” he said. “Spending your way into debt is never the answer, and it is better to buy one or two on-trend pieces instead of buying an entire wardrobe full of clothes every season. The money spent on clothes could be put to better use, like savings and bills."

Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked. I began steeling myself for what I thought was inevitable: a solemn drop in the trash. But once the loafers dried, I found the shoes’ stained stitching—now storm-cloud gray—was lovely and a few new wrinkles in the leather were charming, like smile lines for shoes. I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed. The roughened toe-tops reminded me of a welcoming, worn armchair, and a wet-and-hot summer had molded the material perfectly to my feet.
