Fashion sense around the world

I really enjoy doing product reviews, outfits, combo-inspirations, fashion tips, nail creations and red carpet reviews... but what I love the most about blogging is writing articles from my point of view.  It's been a while since I didn't do an article because these are the hardest to prepare, since I need to do some research.

Have you ever thought of how different is fashion around the world?  Every country has their own style depending on weather and culture.  Since I started this blog, I've realize how relative fashion is.  In Puerto Rico, people dress fresh and comfortable because of the hot weather the entire year.  Even though sometimes I want to use more fashionable pieces, like coats and boots, I've come to the conclusion that you just have to take what you have and style it with originality.

I've heard that some of the most fashion-influential countries are New York, Japan and Paris.  Americans, Asians and Europeans are segmented there. I've only visited New York (for now), and what I love the most about the city is that it is a cultural mix.  You can see people from around the world and the trend setters are not from a specific region.  The real trend-setter is THE CITY.  I bet the same happens with Japan and Paris.

Asians: I think that Asians are REALLY stylish and pay a lot of attention to trends.  Most of them are so radical with their looks that some people from other countries may not understand them. I actually think they are just not afraid of trying anything and I admire their versatility and uniqueness.


Paris Street Style

 Europeans:  Europeans are very fashionable too, but tend to be really classy (red lips and chic pieces of clothing). You can also see girls wearing high heels and impeccable make-up a random day at 8:00 a.m. (somebody that has been to Paris told me that, ha!).  Guys are elegant and like to dress in neutral colors.



New York Street Style:

Americans: Now, back to my side of the world, people from the USA are more easy-going with their looks and Latins like to look good and sexy all the time.  As I mentioned before, New York is full of people from different places, but I think you can differentiate locals, because they tend to have a signature look: funky and care-free, just like Carrie Bradshaw.


Now tell me about your country...
Where are you from?

How important is fashion there?

Which country would you like to visit just to 
experience a completely different style?


Love,
Teresa

  1. This was a really interesting post! I like what you said about New York, but I think I only partly agree. There is definitely a good population who tend to go more casual and bohemian, but from my experiences there, I always see people dressed in more professional attire, or sporting the latest trend ( hi-low skirts, peplum, etc. etc.). The city really does have its own unique style. ^^
    I just stumbled upon your blog, and I really like it. Hope we can keep in touch.

  8. Hi Teresa, I love this post! Its so great to see fashion perspectives from different parts of the world. Even here in Safrica, each of the major cities have a completely unique style, some are trendier, some are more laid back. You're so right about how amazing Asian street style is, I picked up on that in Singapore. I also loved seeing the European style, they are all so trendy and classy. Again, awesome post hun!

  12. Siempre me ha interesado visitar a Japon por su cultura y por la moda. Me gustaria saber como se siente vestirse de una manera radical sin que las personas te juzguen. Asi a lo mejor tengo la oportunidad de poder desarrollar mejor mi propio estilo. Tambien me interesaria utilizar piezas que usualmente no puedo por la tipica calor puertorriqueña.
