What Would Actually Be Helpful to Hear When You Ask, “Do I Look Good?”

Oh, this awkward question before a big party. We all either asked or were asked, “Do I look good?” or “How do I look?” at some point in our lives. For many, this is a simple call for confidence building. For others, this is a pressing issue. What should we say?

The default answer always looks like some form of “You look great!” or “Perfect!” This is by far the safest type of answer, but not all that useful if the person is really wondering about their style choices. Is it okay to lie and let them go looking a little silly? However, it can be dangerous to point out minor flaws when the person really wants confirmation that you are ready to go with them, no matter what they are wearing. I know that when I ask, I seriously wonder if my bold choice of wearing a bright colorful shirt with a gray dark jacket really works, or if I have no fashion sense at all. It or bothers me that my hair looks as bad as I think.

So let’s figure out how to be helpful and kind together. What would you seriously like to hear after asking, “Do I look good?” it’s not just safe huh ? Or maybe it’s better to ask this question if you need honest but kind feedback? Mute the sound in the comments below!
