A worrying study published today shows that Ireland has some of the worst dressed fashion bloggers in all of Europe.
Despite the fact that there has been a huge surge in the number of fashion bloggers since 2002, the study finds that the large majority of them have little to no sense of style.
Ireland has over 100,000 fashion bloggers, with that number sadly growing rapidly each and every day.
Other counties that were included in the survey came out far better than Ireland. Only 35% of Italian fashion bloggers had horrific senses of style, 65% of French and 71% of Spanish.
Even the Polish fashion bloggers performed better than the Irish(79% horrific sense of style), even though their style is centred upon wearing tight blue jeans and looking angry all the time.
One of the main reasons the survey found Irish fashion and beauty bloggers to be horrifically dressed, was because of some of the influences in the Irish fashion world.
The survey pointed to one “renowned” Irish designer who thinks that wearing a barber’s apron with random pieces of plastic stuck to it, as being “fashionable”.
Although barber’s aprons are functional for men getting their haircut, they simply don’t look good outside of the shop.
Worryingly, a growing amount of Irish fashion bloggers are creating content advising people on what’s current and in style at the moment.
Their websites are designed in a similarly terrible way to their own personal style and an increasing number of people are becoming dissatisfied and disillusioned with these bloggers.
A meeting with government is being planned to address the issue, but the study proposes certain guidelines for Irish bloggers to begin using.
For example, any “What I Wore” articles should be accompanied by “Because I’ve No Sense of Style” and/or “Because I’m Fu*king Broke and Can’t Afford Nice Clothes”.
