The majority of young American women are looking to social media to help them make decisions about their personal style. According to a poll from Netbase.com, 83 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds say they consult at least one social platform like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram before making a fashion-related purchase. Twenty-eight percent of the respondents call themselves "social shoppers," or someone influenced by the brands and products their friends use and share online. Sixty-three percent say they visit fashion blogs for inspiration, compared to 58 percent who look to Pinterest and 54 percent who consult Facebook. The survey also found that nearly a quarter of young women want to be considered "trendsetters," and say they're willing to pay a higher price to be the first to have something.
