I was minding my own business browsing the internet on Sunday when I checked out Beautifully Invisible’s ‘links love with a twist‘. On there was an old post from Bangs And A Bun titled ‘Europeans Dress Better Than Americans: Fact‘. To be fair to her she has spent a lot of time in Canada and the US and has also lived in the UK for quite some time. The article has some valid points in it, in my opinion, however I thought I’d touch on the subject on my own blog mainly because I know that I tend to have quite an equal mix of readers from both the US and Europe and it would definitely be interesting to get your opinion on the subject.
I know my favourite designers tend to be European designers… Alber Elbaz, Lucas Ossendrijver, The late Alexander McQueen in terms of mens clothes. I also think that the most flattering look on a guy is the tailored look which flatters the body. I know from my brief visit to the US a lot of guys did tend to wear clothes that weren’t as tailored as you’d tend to see in Europe and I have seen it referenced even in terms as a ‘look’ in comments on thesatorialist “his style is very European”. However I don’t know if it’s fair for me personally to judge an entire country on the limited insight I have on it.
When it comes to women and fashion would you say that European women are more stylish than American women?
I’d love to know your thoughts as I think it’s quite an interesting question. What intrigued me most was that on the original article a lot of comments left were from American’s agreeing with the author. So I’d love to hear from all my readers from the US and also from Europe.
