London : It takes men 37 years to reach maturity as far as their style is concerned, according to a new study.
The survey, conducted by money saving site NetVoucherCodes.co.uk, has indicated that almost a quarter of men under the age of 37 admit they struggle when shopping as they don’t know what looks good on them, compared to just eight per cent of those over 37, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
One in six men surveryed, turned out to be anti-shoppers, and admitted they grab whatever looks okay to keep their shopping trip quick, while more than a quarter of men are so unsure about what to buy they wait until something they like is worn out or broken before replacing it.
One in six men admitted they turn to friends for style guidance because they simply don’t know where to start, while one in 11 looks to celebrities for style inspiration trusting they’ll pick up fashion tips from the red carpet.
“It seems style confidence comes quicker to men than women, but 37 years is still a long time to wait to hit your fashion prime. While it is good to rely on a few failsafe brands and items, why not experiment a little with colour or style as something new might look brilliant,” said Anita Naik, consumer editor at VoucherCodes.co.uk.
Hollywood celebrities Benedict Cumberbatch and Colin Farrell are two 37-year-old men who are definitely style confident. Both can regularly be found on best dressed celebrities’ lists with their dapper looks and sharp suits.
