Mainly its typical high st fast fashion for most girls... although as the festival is on just now there is loads of dif styles going on which is nice to see... but as for the local girls tends to be the usual for the UK. Topshop, zara and H & M, with a light sprinkling of Gap, Dorithy Perkins and if they are pushing the boat out Monsoon... But not everyone is like that to be honest... that really is just my broad brush feeling on what I see. And there is nothing wrong with it really... it just would not be me as its just a bit unimaginative... you shop in the same shops each year and wear stuff that was couture a year ago and now high st! No real thought to their own style!

There's a mix - the High Street Trendies, the Tracksuit Brigade, the Smart Business Types, the Bland and Borings and a few, but not nearly enough of the Original Indidividuals (of which I am one, of course)

Everyone dresses GENERIC... ugh, so boring.

summer:
denim shorts, gladiator sandals, fake chanel bags, trying to be trendy everything from high waist shorts to stilettos with jeans, bright sneakers, unflattering belts under the boobs, skinny jeans for the boys, graphic tshirts & spaghetti strap tanks.

If there's a huge label on it, people will wear it.
Then there are leggings as pants, don't get me started

You have to go to downtown Toronto to get some actual style and inspiration from the clothes.
mmm... this exactly!!! Oh god the TNA bags... someone gave one to me as a gift... let's just say someone else somewhere out there is making good use out of it

In my town, it's definitely very casual, borderline frumpy in some cases. For many people, it's all about comfort, so it's a North Face, a pair of jeans, and then either flip-flops, trainers, or Uggs. There are a lot of people who do "thrift store chic" and I don't mean in a good way, and then there are people who are the slaves to the trends but don't do them well. A lot of people have a pseudo skater/surfer/punk look, and the emo look really took hold when I was a high school senior. There are very few people who do a nice put-together look, and those who do get positive attention.

The majority of people where I live are either Chavs or total hippies (as in the long haired, no washing, tie dyed hemp trousers type), so they dress accordingly

Chicago has about every group you can imagine. Some include:

1. Teen girls with logo Gucci/Coach/LV purses, UGG boots (winter) or gladiator sandals (summer), north face giant logo down coats (winter) or leggings with baggy shirts (summer)
2. "Gangsta" guys with baggy jeans and GIANT embroidered jackets with black trainers
3. Business types with suits, messenger bags, and often ugly/chunky dress shoes
4. Young or not so young girls with tight baby phat jeans and tight low-cut tops that are always incredibly unflattering and disturbing ; these girls love their Coach bags and logo sneakers too
5. Trendier girls with dark jeans and heels, non-logo purses, beautiful trench coats, etc.
6. Emo/scene kids with black hair, tight jeans, Vans/Keds, brightly colored jackets

Well, they are round where I live, they are dying off a bit - but I bet in winter they will be back

Many people wear the sari , another traditional dress is the salwaar kameez which is a long tunic and pants with a long stole. Colours range from vibrant to neon.
Since Bombay is much more cosmopolitan than other cities in India many wear dresses, skirts which is not that prevalent in other cities.
Alot of luxury boutiques are in Bombay including Lanvin, Gucci and Fendi

people in rio dress as safe as it gets. denim trousers (or skirts), colourful top with a long necklace, converses or flats in all colours. if i wear TIGHTS in rio, i get looks. don't even think about high-waisted either (which i wear practically every day when in london)

but that doesn't mean they're not vain. as casual as they are, every millimeter has been thought of and their hair and nails are always flawless... i suppose the year-long good weather and beach culture influence the way they dress a lot. it's very care-free

i'm from new jersey.
the guido/guidette look is popular: bebe. solo pants, armani exchange, guess, marciano, etc.

but in my town and towns near me in general, not many people dress up unfortunately, not even just dress up but its the usual basic tee and jeans and some cute flats or sandals

it's hard to look put together sometimes n not be called "overly dressy"

I've noticed recently that "gangsta" looking guys have been wearing boat shoes/mocassins like these:

Baggy clothes and those... It's the weirdest mix!
