I am from Delhi, India and here you can see so many variation of dresses that people wear here. As both traditional and western clothes are worn here. But still now-a-days Kurtis and leggings, colored pants or trousers with a trendy top or shirt are the daily fashion wear here.

So what are you saying it myth that people in south dress more casual? And in reality it is the other way around?

People here are just more casual. The people I have personally seen in jeans at the symphony were wearing very nice, pressed jeans, usually western style. It's not like they just roll in from a day of working cattle. Like I said, it's ranching country. A lot of people do dress up, but nobody really seems to care either way.

I think you're misinterpreting, or I'm just doing a poor job of explaining. The southerners (women) I personally know here are horrified that people are more casual in their clothing choices. They are the only people I've heard criticizing and complaining about what other people choose to wear. Most people just don't care. I used the example of the symphony because that's one nicer event I have attended here, and I saw people dressed up super formal, people in jeans (though like I said in my previous post, I haven't seen anyone in dirty or sloppy jeans...they are still clean, presentable and nice looking) and people in between.

Personally, if I'm going to a nicer event I prefer to wear a nicer outfit. However, I couldn't care less what other people wear.

It varies, but, for the most part, I'd say most southerners are dressy when the situation calls for it. We balance things out. Men still wear suits and ties for certain gatherings, and women still step out in heels, dresses, and makeup.

As for busting any myth, I have never heard that southerners are supposed to be more casual than most of the nation. I'm pretty sure the Midwest and West Coast have us beat.

I read it on one of those threads on the most and least preppy city or place in the US.

I may have misinterpret it.May be the east coast and north west part of the US in Washington and Oregon over take south has most dress down casual.

Have to disagree with the description of what Seattle's wear (in the OP). Was this person on the college campuses only? Many folks in Seattle and surrounding areas dress very fashionably! Nordstrom is big there, too.

The closest "city" to us is Gallup, NM. The younger women usually wears jeans, tees, and tanks 3 sizes too small. Middle aged wear jeans and tops that are either too tight or right size but wrong style. Stacey London and Clinton Kelly would go nuts there. The local men all wear jeans, western or tee shirts, cowboy hats. Only the very old Navajo ladies wear skirts--long, broomstick style with long sleeve tunic blouse and decked out with thousands of dollars worth of gorgeous turquoise necklaces and bracelets.

Here in the small town I live in its really casual, I see a lot of t-shirts and jeans or sweatpants.

The youth have like 4 different types, skater, gangster or churchy, mostly churchy. By churchy I mean polos, gelled hair, shirts tucked in etc, think duggar children.

I get stared everywhere I go. Usually I'm in a tank top and shorts or tank top and leggings.
I don't dress like anyone else really. My style is very very mid-west, trendy, edgy, etc.

What you call "churchy" I think of as preppy.
