Poll: Would You Let Your Partner Dress You?

Over at the Daily Mail, the male half of four couples were given the chance to dress their female partners, in an experiment of inter-partner makeovers.

The couples ages ranged from 25 to 66, and the results range from adorbs to painful.

The oldest couple, Carole Williams, 64, and Mike Williams, 66, were the most successful. Mike understood what his wife would like, was careful to consider her feelings, and in the end, Carole was happy with her new look.

But for the youngest, Beth Colmar, 25, and Christian Thompson, 31, the little experiment may have gone horribly awry. Beth, who usually dresses granny chic, was put in a short, tight microdress and sky-high heels by Christian. She said of her look: “I want to cry. I look like one of those women who trawl nightclubs picking up footballers…If Christian hopes this will change my dress-sense, he’s wrong. It has had the opposite effect — I can’t get back into my old clothes quick enough,”

Awkward.

But regardless, what do you think? Would you let your partner give you a makeover?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

    I totally let my boyfriend help pick out clothes. Mostly because he is ridiculously stylish, and his suggestions are pretty much always excellent. But then, I also steal his clothes from time to time, so I guess we’re pretty much on a similar wavelength.

    I wouldn’t commit to let a boyfriend dress me on a regular basis, but I have occasionally gone to the mall with boyfriends/guy-friends, given them my sizes, and asked them to pick out an outfit for me to try on…always interesting to get perspective on what others think would suit me.

    My boyfriend and I are pretty similar to Becca and hers, he’s amazing at helping me coordinate an outfit (as long as he doesn’t have to get up) and always pushes me to wear things I’ve bought but not been brave enough to wear. I wouldn’t let him do it all the time though, sometimes his suggestions are a bit… questionable.

    I would let my girlfriend dress me only for seeing how do i look if she would give some clothes that she likes. Then only i like them and i like how i look in those clothes, i would let her dress me second time.
