So, what’s this all about, anyway?
Style Girlfriend is for every guy who understands that living with style is about way more than what you wear. Don’t get us wrong; it’s great when guys want to look good, and we can help you upgrade your wardrobe, one piece at a time.
That’s just the start, though. If you want to truly become your best self, we’re ready to help you get there with the essays and info you’ll find on SG—from becoming a more interesting (and interested!) person to acting with integrity in your relationships at school, work, and in your personal lives. Our team of women writers are here to give you the inside scoop on how to be a modern man.
Simply put, we’ll show you how to make every woman want you…without being a dick about it.
What about you? What’s your deal?
In college, I double majored in political science and public relations with a minor in French. Yes, I was a nerd. And no, I can’t speak a lick of French anymore.
After I graduated, I worked in advertising for a couple years before realizing what I really wanted to do was help create community and understanding. Style Girlfriend started as a favor for a friend who had started a custom suiting business and grew from there. What was once a fashion-focused weekly online column, has since ballooned into a one-stop shop for the shortcuts on how live with style in an increasingly-confusing (and role model-less) world.
Then…what makes you qualified to give advice on what I should wear?
While it’s true that I don’t have a formal background in fashion, I know what I like to see guys wearing, and how I like for them to act around me. And I’m happy to share that information in a positive, constructive way.
A lot of ladies out there, including well-meaning girlfriends and wives, can’t always bring themselves to do the same. And, ahem, guys aren’t always inclined to listen. That’s where Style Girlfriend comes in. Think of us as an unbiased female POV on what women really want from the men in their lives.
I’m a dude. I’m not into fashion, I just want to look good.
Well, first of all, that’s not really a question. But I’ll respond anyway.
For a lot of guys (and plenty of women, too!) the idea of “fashion” can seem really overwhelming. I mean, how are you even supposed to keep up on every single brand and every single trend and know what all the celebs and cool street style stars are wearing?
On top of all that, if you don’t have the perfect body, or a huge budget, it can make the whole idea of dressing well feel practically impossible.
So we don’t talk about fashion here. We talk about style.
Style is timeless. Developing a strong sense of your personal style helps you make a statement to the world about who you are.
The thing is, you express your style more than just through the clothes you wear. Style is also about the way you live your life—where you travel, what books you read, the way you treat people.
To live a stylish life is to live with intention. That might be wearing the perfect v-neck white t-shirt that sits just so on your shoulders, or choosing to cook a real dinner on the stove instead of ordering Seamless on your way home from school or work.
What should I wear with… / Where should I take my next date…?
If you live in the U.S., you can take advantage of our free (for now, anyway!) texting service. You could also tweet at us. If you don’t have any objections, your question might even end up being plucked from the reader mailbag as a Style Girlfriend column! Because if you don’t know the answer, then there’s probably a ton of other guys who don’t either.
Is all the content on the site your own?
Yes, unless otherwise marked (like with photos we find on other sites), all content is our own.
How do you handle advertising?
Style Girlfriend is committed to full transparency when it comes to sponsorships and advertising, and all branded content is noted as such.
We appreciate that followers understand we have to keep a roof over our heads, AND that if we wouldn’t recommend a brand to our brother, father, husband or boyfriend, we won’t work with that brand on Style Girlfriend. So if you see a sponsored campaign, you know we really mean it!
How can my company work with Style Girlfriend?
Plenty of ways! We make a point to be as picky about our partnerships as we are about our partners, so all campaigns are created in collaboration with a brand and totally custom. Email Sam at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if there could be a fit.
