I live in michigan and it's pretty sloppy here. Common day when going to campus you'll see most people in just jeans, sweatshirt& boots or similar to that. I like to dress up sometimes; Just all formal. About once a week; To see what I can drag in
Other then that you'll see the common people just wearing holster shirts, A T-shirt under it with some slacks sometimes. I'll admit I do it once or twice. Just plain (Usually Dark blue) long sleeve with a White-t under.

I live in the Midwest. 90% of people don't really do high fashion, here, unless they have to for their jobs. It's very relaxed, informal, and utilitarian. Even when dressing up, people tend to stick with basic staples. Shopping and couture...not a big deal here.

Another Midwesterner here - lots of "mall" clothes. Talbots, Limited, Express, JCP, Gap - because, often times, that's what we have to choose from. Brighton or Vera Bradley bags (never did get the attraction there), white generally reserved for summer, and bags frequently matching the shoes (as well as eye shadow matching the top). Our population tends to run older than the coasts, as does our fashion. And, as TabulaRasa so aptly states, it's not a big deal here.

I agree with Kenion on the college attire that I have seen. Tons of leggings (waaay too many leggings, actually, lol!) with hooded sweatshirts or puff vests, Uggs, and scarves.

Western levis, boots, cowboy hats, to kids trying to look urban with saggy pants, chains, black clothes and a mix in between. There really isn't any "fashion" here where I live, people wear what they want.

I forgot to mention the Vera Bradley. I know people love her stuff but I don't get it. Seems like 2 out of 3 college girls at my school have a VB backpack... and it looks like old lady quilts made into a bag to me.

I noticed another thing today while out: people here have super expensive purses. Coach, etc. But the clothes are still sweats and t-shirts... why put that much money into a "high fashion" bag then dress in your around the house clothes??

I bring my "nice" bags too the gym. I don't have time to swap purses.

Well what I observed wasn't people going to the gym or doing laundry, but out shopping in high end shops, getting hair done, school, work, etc.

I don't know, just looks kind of funny to me, in situations where a person is not just running out for milk or running to the gym. Seems akin to a fur coat with sweatpants but to each their own.

I've always felt the same way when women wear a full face of makeup, have their hair perfectly coiffed and are wearing a sweat suit or yoga pants and running shoes.

Columbus, Ohio:

Not really a fashion utopia.


Most guys that I see, dress terrible.

The women dress the same: very tight jeans/leggins with High Heels. Nothing orginal nor any style at all.
