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."

Fashion Weeks may come and go (and with them a focus that shifts from statement coats to statement shoes and statement lips and eyes and back again), but one thing stays the same, no matter the date, year, or season: the editorial need for survival. And with that, you know, ideally looking good, too. Luckily for you, this season the Vogue.com team is divulging its Fashion Week “steals”; must-haves for under $100. From sneakers to a staple cardigan and a classic pair of shades, here are the fall-friendly items that we’ll be carrying with us long after the collections end.
Ever since Kate Middleton transformed into Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, in her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress, the public has embraced her elegant sense of style and her ability to mix high street with haute couture. So it’s only fitting that her maternity looks always follow suit. Early in her pregnancy with Prince George, the Duchess favored muted jewel tones in amber, forest, and tan in mostly flared silhouettes, and as winter gave way to spring, she let loose her penchant for pastels and English designers. A printed Erdem dress showed off her changing physique while a polka-dot Topshop look proved she was having fun with her pregnancy. A staple throughout was the fascinator, which she wore on her last five public appearances. As the world awaits and speculates as to what Kate Middleton will wear—and what gender baby she’ll have—the second time around, we’ve compiled our favorite maternity looks from her first pregnancy.

Models may be pros at walking with authority, wearing clothes well, and looking good doing practically anything—but if there is one thing that exceeds their fashion prowess, it’s their command of the world’s best beauty products. Backstage each season and on set throughout the year, they road test a mind-boggling assortment of mascaras, foundations, hairsprays, and more. Between having their hair teased within an inch of its life, their makeup applied and reapplied a dozen times in a day, and their skin pushed to its absolute limits, it’s safe to say they’ve figured out which are the most gentle, effective, and transformative formulas on the market. From the world’s sexiest (and most healing) lip balm to the original French pharmacy face cream, here are ten beauty products you can find in almost every model’s medicine cabinet.
