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.
That's just what the people in my classes look like. I'm a student from Munich. You're right, the combination really has it. But just to defend these guys: Maybe they're searching for identification ( omg what am I writing
), in winter it is really cold here and there's a lot of snow, so Timberlands are almost necessary ( I have a no - name - version, too), my longchamp is the most practical handbag I've ever had and some of these guys are really nice...
... moreover it can be fun NOt to look like that, when surrounded by these people
