Boyfriend Is a Bad Dresser

Group Therapy: My Boyfriend's Style Embarrasses Me

Okay, so basically my new guy is super good looking and totally sweet. We've been dating for about a month and I really like him — it's perfect for me right now and has the potential to become something big, although we're taking it slow and getting to know each other right now.

Anyway the only problem is that he has a sense of style that I just cannot STAND. I hate to be shallow, but he wears loose ribbed turtlenecks with baggy jeans and dirty sneakers and then throws an old, not well cut, kinda too long, leather jacket over the top of all that as the finishing touch.

Don't get me wrong I'm not the most fashionable woman in the world, but my guy's wardrobe . . . hate to say it, but it's true: embarrasses me. My best friend keeps telling me to go shopping with him, but we're not big shoppers in general and I think he would think it was a bizarre proposition.

And anyway I sort of don't want to be subtle about this, I want to straight out say: "hey, you're wardrobe is just atrocious," (and since he doesn't much care about fashion) maybe he'd be open to a new look?I really don't want him to get defensive though — help!
