Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s relationship elicits negative responses for a number of reasons. In some corners, their pairing is seen as a publicity stunt; in others, it’s viewed as disrespectful to Kim’s ex, Kris Humphries, to whom she is actually still married. But recently, critics have also pointed out that Kim has been dressing differently since she’s started dating Kanye West. Her clothes have gotten tighter and move revealing, she seems to be confused as to what season she’s in, and she is almost perpetually stuck in a neutral tone palette. Not only has her fashion changed, but in addition to quoting rap verses, she’s now trying her hand at cooking soul food. Pause for effect.

By the same token, Meagan Good, who just married Devon Franklin, a Seventh Day Adventist pastor, is criticized for not changing her look once they started dating. Good has an affinity for plunging necklines, leggings, and dresses with short hems, and critics believe she should abandon those styles now that she is romantically involved with a man of God.

Many women have found their style influenced by a love interest, whether it’s changing a small facet of their looks or embracing a completely new look. And there are still some women who would never compromise their sense of style for someone else, no matter how serious the relationship.

Where do you stand, Clutchettes? Would you ever change how you dress for your partner?

    Has anyone seen Megan’s long do? The first thing I thought when I saw her with long hair is…..I wonder if her new husband told her he likes long hair better than short hair. Because I’ve never seen her rock long hair before she got married

    I think it’s natural to evolve once you’re in a relationship. We generally want to please our partners as much as they want to please us. Believe it or not they change to. Wen he compliments you on a particular hairstyle, you do it more often because you want your man to adore everything about you. I think we do it out of impulse though, sometimes we aren’t even aware we’re doing it.

  • I would modify my dress at the most i.e. lengthen my skirts, cut down on the boobage etc… IF he wants me too, if he doesn’t complain about it then i don’t see a reason to change.

    Because I’m combative (per other people), I’m pretty sure if my style went on the chopping block for changing, his would too. The only time I’m willing to change based on a man’s suggestion is if I broached the subject first (i.e. hey hon, I’m in the mood to do something different w/my look–got anything you wanna see me try out?). Don’t single the woman out if the man expects to be taken as is. Megan’s husband liked her as is when he met her, while they dated, and when he asked for her hand. I would think by now he’s gotten used to her sense of style.

    Random thought…but I just keep seeing your website say this so just had to say something. Please stop calling DeVon Franklin a Seventh-Day Adventist pastor because he honestly is NOT a pastor. He “speaks” at churches but in our denomination…you have to actually go through specifics steps before you become a pastor. Otherwise anyone could become a pastor. At best he is an ordained elder. But a pastor, he certainly is not. And I’m sure he would admit to this himself if he was asked directly to address this.
