one of my friends asked me if I could teach her to be fashionable. she's a cute girl but dresses so dowdy. her clothes are whatever her mom picks her up at walmart. they're not poor but she just never shops. she doesn't wear makeup or do her hair.
I'm not a good teacher. I don't know how I learned to be fashionable. I just picked it up. I tried showing her youtube vids and fashion mags but she's bad at copying them. she just looked like an even bigger mess.
what do I do? I want to help her but I don't know how.

I'm afraid I don't have much of an answer for the "teacher" part of it, but you can offer to go shopping with her and pick out things you think she would look good in.
I do agree with the guys in that she has to pick her own style that she likes and feels comfortable in. Whether that's a timeless classic look, or the latest trend-setting style off the runway.
In the end, there's only so much you can do and the best you can do is to say you tried. It's up to her to LEARN how to be fashionable, and not just from you but from the other sources you mentioned.
I think you've been and you are being a good friend so far. You're not a bitch so don't let that person get you down.1
