Due to the globalization of fashion nowadays we have the same selection of brands and stores almost everywhere we travel. However, the same pair of jeans in styled differently in different countries. In this article, we’ll dispel some popular myths. For example, we are used to thinking that Eastern women wear exclusively black. We believe that French ladies like berets or Italian ladies can’t go a single day without shopping. However, these ideas have nothing to do with reality.

To prove it, we invite you on a journey through fashion preferences of women across the planet.

Iran

Although Iran’s laws require that all women wear headscarves when going out in public, modern fashionistas here are given more freedom in choosing what to wear compared to ladies in other Eastern countries. So often women in Iran pick and match clothes to create mind-blowing outfits with oriental style notes.

Japan

It’s true that some Japanese girls love dressing like anime characters and therefore put on short skirts and high platforms. However, this type of clothing is only worn by some subculture representatives. Most women in Japan prefer elegant outfits with charming details that make their style unique and chic. They adore cute socks, straight silhouettes, and beautiful accessories. Japanese women wear very delicate jewelry or none at all. Many young girls in Japan are walking along a street with wearing fashionable and sophisticated clothes produced by a famous designer.

Parisian chic is all about laconic shapes and stylish designs. Simple outfits adorned with intricate accents, mischievous combinations, an absence of pretentious and flashy logos, and, of course, a touch of feminine frivolity are what makes Parisian women stand out in their style. Parisians love neutral colors and adhere to the “No more than 3 colors” rule.

Italy

Contrary to popular belief, not all Italian women wear designer dresses and like massive accessories. In fact, such outfits can be seen more often on runways than in real life. In general, fashionistas in Italy dress according to their age: younger people prefer casual brands while older ladies choose to wear more elegant clothes. In this country, all women take care of themselves and update their wardrobe on a regular basis. Italian women always wear makeup (usually the kind of makeup that looks very natural) and have their hair, eyebrows, and nails done (especially toenails).

Russia

Russian girls are famous worldwide for their elegant beauty. The first reason for this is the ethnic diversity of the country. Second, Russian women love to look beautiful and attractive, and they devote much time to their looks. Meeting an elegantly dressed lady walking down the street in high heels when the temperature outside is far below zero is a common thing here. In recent times, however, female residents of big cities are increasingly giving preference to comfortable clothes. But fashionistas in Russia still don’t forget about style and femininity.

Great Britain

Do you still think that British women wear long classic coats and tartan fabrics on a daily basis? Certainly not! Girls here know how to mix and match pieces that are seemingly unmatchable. They aren’t afraid to experiment with different styles and love to add bright accents to their looks. English women always stay one step ahead of world fashion, and they don’t care about trends because London is the place where trends are born.

China

Fashion in China is changing very rapidly. Chinese women had different kinds of clothes in ancient times. Those clothes changed with the revolution of fashion. Not long ago, China was a nation of shopaholics where girls snapped up everything in sight. Today, however, Chinese women are developing their style. Chinese fashionistas love clothes with logos, bright accents, and beautiful jewelry. They are not afraid to experiment and always look for something different. Also, Chinese women like brightly-colored clothes so much.
