New survey reveals shocking shopping habits of West Midlands women
4:37pm Monday 9th September 2013 in Lifestyle
A NEW survey of women across the West Midlands has revealed 25 per cent of women have bought shoes or a dress they knew would not fit them because they are pretty and a fifth dress up more to go shopping than on a date night.
Research by online fashion retailer Zalando (www.zalando.co.uk) also revealed the biggest fashion faux pas fear for a third [29 per cent] of women was that people thought they dressed like their mum.
And, more than a fifth admitted to be instantly turned off by what a man was wearing on a date.
The survey of 2,000 women aged between 18-40 also discovered that a fifth of respondents said they made more of an effort to dress up for the weekly supermarket shop and school run than they did for ‘date night’ with their partner.
Barbara Franzreb, head of communications and PR of Zalando, said: “This research goes to show that what we wear really plays a part in how we feel and how we want others to see us. And although this was a survey of just women, there’s a clear message for men here – the clothes you pick could mean the difference between a date going well or badly!”
Black shoes were the item which gave women the most confidence [50 per cent], while across the regions blue shoes were favoured the most by women in the North East [25 per cent] while nude shoes proved to be the most popular in London.
