I've been suscribed to Seventeen magazine for years, but when I discovered websites like Chictopia or Lookbook I was more inspired than the magazines. The difference is how more realistic people are compared to magazine models. What I love is how you can see people also wear the same clothes they own but interpret them in different outfits. I've learned more about fashion online than magazines.

Wow, interesting article. While magazines do have an effect on what I look for, I can definitely agree and say that study sounds pretty accurate, or at least for me.

i like both magazine and street style shots, although some editorial shots aren't that easy to pull-off in the real world..

Agreed -- but it's still nice to dream about what they have featured in editorials!

I do prefer real world examples. Editorial trends, ironically, have become more accessible. It's very easy to find copies! I don't like to be a sheep that dresses the same as at least 20 other people in the subway... (Though, in terms of body size, it's not like most of the 'recommended bloggers' even come near my size)

I totally understand what you're saying! Even during fashion weeks, there are a few people who are wearing the same things (because they're all exact copies from off the runway).

i mush prefer real world examples. Models in magazines make it seem so unattainable and unrealistic. <3

There are tons of real world examples that are completely mind blowing & amazing! Usually those are the ones that inspire me most.

magazines definitely changed the way i shop

definitely for the better. it showed me how the designer wanted me to wear the clothes, which i then interpret

I'd love to know if it was for the better or for the worse?
