We have people who either dress very nice and "swag" or very are very much on trend. Then we have people who don't care what they wear as long as it's clean and it fits.


I have my own style. With of course, inspirations.

Wait What Upstate NY is not a whole lot different from NYC, except for thicker winter coats, thermals, and better snow boots. Maybe I am wrong, but most women were dressed in shorts (or) miniskirts with T-shirts (or) tank tops and sandals when I went over to lake George 2 summers ago. Same held true when I visited Cornell last year. Buffalo has more of a Jeans culture during the summer which is noticeably different from NYC. This is probably stemming out from its history as an industrial hub during the late 19th till mid 20th Century (NEW YORK CENTRAL RAILROAD ERA AMONG US RAIL FANS ). It also gets pretty chilly up there at night, so its recommended that you wear jeans.

You have to be kidding if you don't think people dress differently in rural upstate NY than they do in NYC.

Well, I know that they don't follow fashion trends as closely. But a poster earlier described as if it was some weird &quot;werewolf land&quot;, which is far from the truth. T shirts and shorts are a staple across most of America during the summer, and Winter jackets are used in most northern states to combat the harsh winter. You could add in more traditional clothing into the mix if we are talking about rural areas like plaid shirts for men and full length skirts for women. But in upstate cities, its not a whole lot different from what we wear in the suburbs of NYC. I have been there several times, and am just narrating my experiences. Since the posters location says Upstate NY, how am I supposed to know if she lives in Potsdam or Syracuse.

Adi, have you been to Warrensburg? Fort Edward? Lake George is waaaay more civilised, and in the summer it's full of downstate tourists. You will see locals before Memorial Day and after Columbus Day, in the country towns it's scary. We are near Lake Luzerne.

Unfortunately, no. The one feature I did not like about lake George in July was the excessive concentration of tourists. Way too crowded for me and my family. We did make a trip to Glenn Falls and thought the town was quaint and beautiful. A nice escape from the crowd into real upstate NY. Fort Edward, just minutes from Glenn Falls would not be a whole lot different. I really wanted to visit Ticonderoga as well, but my parents (in their early 50's) were too tired and wanted to go home. They once again made a trip up to the same area this year (without me, I was doing my intern in India) and visited Ticonderoga, Lake Champlain, and took the barge across to Burlington and St Albans. What you think as scary is actually my source of enjoyment . On occasions, I get sick of endless traffic congestion and stressful work. Sometimes, I love a quite relaxing vacation, and upstate NY offers that option. Be Proud.
