About the same. They dress for the cold.

I don't think that people in one city compared to the next dress drastically different...lived in Chicago for 23,years and been to Minneapolis... Don't see a difference in style.

Minneapolis does seem to be a bit more fashionable than Chicago for being a smaller city. Minneapolis also has a strong fitness culture, which Chicago does not, and this may have something to do with it.

Chicago definitely seems to be more high-end fashionable than the Twin Cities.

Chicago for high-end runway/big name kind of fashion, Minneapolis for urban alternative/thrifty everyday kind of fashion.

I'll have to agree with Steel03; the Twin Cities has a more unconventional or "alternative" (hipster) aesthetic in the style of dress for the average urbanite, and less concern for luxury brand names. I'd say that the average Twin Citian is better-dressed than an average Chicagoan (much, much more visible working class and poverty in Chicago), but Chicago's business elite are a step above.

That being said, suburbanites in both metros dress equally poorly.

I'd agree with the two above statements, but your likely to see some alternative dress in the Northshore Chicago neighborhoods as well. But overall very similar.

Chicago out of the two.

Minneapolis isn't even on the fashion radar.
