Whenever I have my camera I don't see anyone and 1 time I didn't and I saw 3 great looking people in fantastic clothes in a row.
Sod's law dagnabit!
Now you can do Edinburgh
I just had a look back and the last page and I just can't verbalise how much I hate 'festival fashion' so hopefully this will suffice:

Yes, I love Cafe Irie

Dublin is very influenced by London street style, probably because it's a relatively small city. DublinStreets is a pretty good blog, but 'sceney'. I often see people who deserve to be photographed, but I'd feel weird asking them to stop and pose

I feel the same too (about asking people to stop and pose). But it's quite flattering when it happens to you. So I guess most people would just take it as a compliment or just say no.
Cafe Irie's great! It's got lots of veggie options.
Aaaanyway.....Here's a new one from Dublin Streets. I'm quite sure it hasn't been posted and it's the best recent one IMO.
DiamondSea, you are a mystery! You know about Dublin as well at the best of British.....hmm....very interesting!

Opinions of Ireland's fashion!
Don't ask me why, but I've always been curious about what other nationalities
think of Ireland, the people and the style?! I'm a tad nosy.

Very true,in fact I was London a month ago and there was a group of flourescent nu-rave girls on the tube - I instantly thought Dublin , and I was right(and dissapointed I was right)

In my opinion the people who get it right in Dublin are not the super fashion conscious people,but the ones who just see something they like regardless of trends and make it work because they trust their own tastes.

Very well said cbdas!!! I'm inclined to agree.. I dunno if it is because I am quite young and I see alot of people of my own age (who one could see are more influenced by trends) around the city, but Dubliners seem to hop onto trends a little too keenly! Noticing a spesific "look" or style that someone has, in the long term, becomes more interesting.
If anyone here is going the Trinity Ball it could be a good place to snap people..? Or it could be a really good place to loose one's camera!!

Trinity Ball style is almost as bad as festival style.
Yes, I know Katie too, cbdas I used to work with her in BTs. HEHE.
And I agree about people from Dublin hoping on trends. It's pathetic and embarrassing.
It seems that there are very few people with orginality and style. *sigh*

Never even knew this thread existed! I completely agree that the street style over here is heavily based on other cities, I think its going to be sometime before we break free and create our own different style....

Is it just me but individual cities dont really have their own styles... its just in big cities people who care about fashion live... and hence if you go on the street you see more stylish people... most country people aint into there style too much!

I don't see it anywhere other than Dublin where you can tell someone's life story by what they're wearing.

Dublin is like it's made up of several large cliques, where everyone dresses accordingly. It's quite depressing. And if 95% of girls aren't wearing Topshop, they're wearing the Penney's knockoff.

Don't even get me started on men's style >_<

I know! My brother has started reading GQ magazine though so there could be hope for him. Though he doesn't dress to badly at the moment.

I do find it difficult to dress the way I want to in Dublin though. I mean you can dress very fashionably in Paris or London even and it would be normal, But when I'm in Dublin I feel like it's a bit too much.

Are the Irish ready for high fashion?
