Ooohh... no one in my little town has style what so ever. They all think fashion is tucking in a flanel shirt with a pair of jeans or leggings and worn with boots or ballet flats. Its not a pretty look at all.

In Toronto, the typically dressed girl consists of pretty much all the things I (and many people at tFS)am annoyed at:
Type 1: Uggs, a coach bag, black pants from Lulu Lemon or TNA, oversized top from some athletic chic brand.
Type 2: Oversized/plain/ripped up shirt, leggings, flats, oversized bag that's nearly always fake.
Type 3: Dark shirt with tacky neon print that everyone wears to look (ironically) unique, ripped/faded/neon/overly tight skinny jeans, converse.

Hungary (my country): it sucks...people doesn't know what fashion is though... a lot of women looks like a porn actress or a wh*re...(central Europe..) men are not fashionable and they are boring...
but there's some good example, too :]

I live in Harrogate, which is a reasonably-sized affluent town. There are lots of preppy shops like Jack Wills and Crew Clothing, and some designer shops, so when you walk down the street in Harrogate all you see are girls and boys wearing Jack Wills. But they're all between the ages of 11 and 15, so they're young and annoying and think they're so "like, gorgeous, daaaaarhl" wearing their crappy preppy clothes.
Then there are tons of "indie" girls wearing brogues and dresses, sporting leather satchels, trying to look like Alexa Chung but actually looking ridiculous and quite tacky (because they buy all of their clothes from Topshop and New Look).

The boys are mostly just preppy, but there are also indie/hipster boys who wear jeans that are clearly too tight, teamed with check shirts. The more "unique" ones wear loafers and jumpers from charity shops and have- admittedly- sexy hair.

Everybody here seems to think they're so individual/posh, but really they're not.

i live in new york so i see more fashion inclined people even on the subways. i once saw a women with an hermes looking extremely sharp and some gorgeous chanel flats. it's kind of a hit or miss and it kind of depends on where you are. like in manhattan especially near fifth avenue you'll find more fashion forward people as opposed to the outer boroughs.

People in my town dress well but not what you would call fashionable if you were to compare the whole lot of them. Though, once in awhile, you might get lucky and see an individual with actual style. ;D

I attend the University of California, Davis, which is about an hour and a half from San Francisco. It's a small college town and there are a lot of trendy people, but there are a handful of people that dress well. I write for a magazine so it's more of an article than a blog on street style. Here's my latest piece!

I miss living in NYC for the people watching and style stalking - now, living in Dallas, I have to consciously make an effort to drive to certain areas to get even a taste of interesting and fun fashion, otherwise it's Northface jackets, jeans (sometimes shorts?! in the winter!), Uggs, and LV/Coach bags everywhere. The more labels, the better, apparently.

I'm in Birmingham, UK and the main style here is "anything vintage goes", the need for which is served by many vintage boutiques in the city. On the flip-side of that you may get someone walk past who is head-to-toe in designer gear, then someone who is head-to-toe in clothes from Primark. Goth, skater, clubbing...... mixed bag! I cover the bits I like best on my blog.

I've been living in Washington, D.C.: where style goes to die.
