I had a friend like that and I stopped being her friend.
BUT I don’t advise you take the same action as I did. Imitation is the biggest form of flattery. But according to you, its annoying. I can definate relate.
Maybe ask her in a nice way. If shes you’re friend, you should be able to ask her anything.posted over 4 years ago
Some people are just followers like that. I have no idea how to deal with this. I don’t think there is a nice way to tell her directly to stop dressing like you. She’ll just have to find a style of her own…. hopefully sooner rather than later.posted over 4 years ago
thanx for ur helpful and quick responses guys, RosaB i think that is a rly good suggestion and I’ll definitely give that a go, and i think if i don’t talk about clothes as much around her. Itz just rly hard coz she’s a rly good friend of mine. :Pposted over 4 years ago
I don’t think you should think of it as annoying but like TraceFineGold said, it should be flattering that someone wants to imitate you and dress like you. It should make you feel even better about yourself that someone is looking up to you almost like how we’re often inspired by the media and celeb styles. Anyway, hope you can see where I’m coming from and maybe then it’ll be less annoying that your friend copies your style. :)posted over 4 years ago
maybe you could suggest other styles… that might help her stray from your style.. i guess you could be a little flattered cause that means that you’re pretty good at dressing yourself… =)posted over 4 years ago
Gasp, no offense. But I really find those type of people annoying.
Usually I handle them by just telling them nicely how I think they should get some originality, and give them some different ideas. :]
wear really ulgy clothes for a while.
and then go back to your normal clothes.
ha that sounds dumb.posted over 4 years ago
I agree with RosaB, try going shopping with her and suggest styles of clothing that are different to what you wear, clothes that would fit her body shape well etc. You could also look through magazines together to get inspiration about different looks/styles for her.
You could say something like, “I always find it really funny when you’re out and you see groups of girls wearing pretty much exactly the same thing. They look like total clones, don’t they have any originality?” Or if you have a younger sister you could say…“My sister went out the other day and everything she wore belongs to me, it’s like she’s trying to be a lamer version of me, i hate it when people try to copy my style” That way it’s not directed to her but she’ll get the idea that you don’t like being copied… hope that helps a bit
^coldlight’s ideas sound effective. Hopefully, your friend will get the hints.
I had a friend like yours, and it got to the point where it moved beyond just copying style. If I had something on hold at a store, she’d go there saying she was me and buy it for herself (we looked very similar, salespeople were always duped). Or she’d outright steal things out of my closet. Obviously, don’t let it get this far, or you’ll end up losing a friend.posted over 4 years ago
LMAOOO I had this happen to me in freshman year of highschool. I just told the girl what I thought very sternly. Wasn’t the best way to do it but I was a mean girl.
You should KINDLY ask her what she thinks about your feelings. I think it’s better to be upfront; she can’t fix a problem that she’s unaware of.
Shopping with her is a little too passive for the way I like to handle things. And she may think of it as an invite to share your style.
A few of my friends are major followers. They’re cheerleaders who are obssesed with JoBros (ughhh..) and think they’re urban and orriginal. It really annoys me, because they think they own the style..posted over 4 years ago
lol Ninahhh! great idea! haha, but yer I think it would probably be best if I just told her. Thanks for all ur help :)posted over 4 years ago
Haha, I dont always have this probalem….but when I do I indirectly talk about people copying each other aloud….lolposted over 3 years ago
well, for me, I feel proud of myself because of all the fashion icons and celebrities but then she chose you. It’s very flattering that means she likes your style and believe me, it feels like you’re a star.. I don’t care if someone is copying my style.. That means, we are in the same feather because we simply love fashion.posted over 3 years ago
