But that's a different story!).
As Heidelberg is the most boring city in the world the streetstyle is even worse. I fell kind of exotic and looked at if I go for a coffee e.g. You see I'm rarely here and if I'm here I leave my flat to walk my dog or do some shopping (only FOOD...) or go to work (that's the reason why I'll have to stay here...)
The Heidelbergians (mostly students) wear a kind of a students uniform. I call it the British preppy style (even if I can hardly remember seeing anyone wearing something like that in Britain).
timberland boat shoes (in summer AND winter)
blue jeans (mostly levi's 501)
ralph lauren jumpers (the ones with the little pony in ALL colours, mainly cashmere) with shirts underneath
barbour jacket in all colours (green, blue, brown)
burberry scarfs (nova check)
The brands are (as already mentioned): Barbour, Burlington, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Levi's, Timberland, Burberry.
PLEASE don't laugh this is true i don't exxagerate!
Timberland boat shoes (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) or some shoes like tod's
Ralph Lauren sweaters (mainly pink, light blue, etc.)
Barbour jackets or some other preppy lookin black woolen coats
LONGCHAMP handbags in EVERY colour. You can't walk down the main street without seeing at least 20 students carrying them along
That't the university city style. It's very different in other german cities! Heidelberg is a very traditional city. The're many fraternities here and clubs and etc. You come here when your father/grandfather etc. has already studied here and normally go into the same fraternity. Many aristocrats - with no sence of individual style
I used to like that style but not if EVERYONE has it. I adopted parts of it. So I also own a LONGCHAMP les pliage Handbag but would never combine it with tods etc. I love tod's but... you know. Sometimes the lack of creativity drives me nuts.
oh my goodness... that's exactly the way some of those "I have to show how rich I am" kids dress like. Horrible!
The Majority of the boys wear long hair (and they all look the same)....
My friends and I call them "Golf kids"
And what I hate most is their arrogance and snootiness in clubs, when they sit in their "vip baloconies" and just watch the people party, while they sit and look like if they lost a golf tournament.
