It'd be easier to make a list of places where people are actually well dressed. These tend to be large cities with upper middle/ wealthy populations. Basically yuppies.

Every small town in florida (excluding suburb towns). Florida's big cities and there sububrs dress just like every other US city. But EVERY TIME i drive through a rural town in FL, all the people i see seemed to be very trashy.

and even then it's just those specific neighborhoods.

You can easily go through portions of New York, Boston, San Fran, LA, Chicago, etc and see plenty of people "dressed bad". When you get down to it, what society and television/media sees as "dressed bad" is probably fairly common if you collected all 300 million americans and looked at what they were wearing.


It's all personal taste in my opinion. What do I like to wear? t-shirts, Old Navy shorts and cheap flip-flops with a baseball cap. That works well for me. Some see it as cheap and unsophisticated...which is what I'm going for. I'd rather spend $80 on a good night out with friends than a "hot" shirt, and I could care less as long as I'm "passable" and comfortable.

I mean there are obviously people I see and immediately think "oh.....no no no" when they're wearing obnoxious things, but whatever.

My Aunt thinks style is wearing those fake kinda jeans that are barely denim with a stretch waist, fanny packs, and grossly oversized t-shirts with pictures of an American flag with an eagle crying over it. Or fluffy shirts with kittens on them. It's certainly not the best dressed...but whatever floats her boat.

Regular people in Miami and LA probably usually dress the same, just casually...

then of course you have the fashion and glamour in both cities... models, celebrities.

Portland-Metro area is NOT known for "dressing well". Overly casual, even in formal setting, and a lot of outright sloveliness, too. Everyday I see people out in public wearing stuff that I won't wear inside my house.

Portland, Oregon. In many ways it is difficult to tell here if some of these people are homeless, or just not interested in their appearance.

I would say all the cities from the rural south dress so bad. Also a lot of people in the South does not know how to dress.

Maybe they're just hipsters?
