Life is full of stereotypes,
but we at Bright Side like to dispel popular myths. For example, we are used to
thinking that Eastern women wear exclusively black. We believe that French
ladies like berets and that Italian fashionistas can’t go a single day without
shopping. However, these ideas have nothing to do with reality.
To prove it, we invite you on
a journey through fashion preferences of women across the planet.

Although Iran’s laws require
that all women wear headscarves when going out in public, modern fashionistas
here are given more freedom in choosing what to wear compared to ladies in other
Eastern countries. Very often women in Iran pick and match clothes to create
unforgettable outfits with oriental style notes.

It’s true that some Japanese
girls love dressing like anime characters and therefore put on short skirts and
high platforms. However, this type of clothing is only worn by some subculture
representatives. Most women in Japan still prefer elegant outfits with charming
details that make their style unique and chic. They adore cute socks, straight
silhouettes, and beautiful accessories.

Parisian chic is all about
laconic shapes and stylish designs. Simple outfits adorned with intricate
accents, mischievous combinations, an absence of pretentious and flashy logos,
and, of course, a touch of feminine frivolity are what makes Parisian women
stand out in their style.

Contrary to popular belief,
not all Italian women wear designer dresses and like massive accessories. In
fact, such outfits can be seen more often on runways than in real life. In
general, fashionistas in Italy dress according to their age: younger people
prefer casual brands while older ladies choose to wear more elegant clothes. In
this country, all women take care of themselves and update their wardrobe on a
regular basis.

Russian girls are famous
worldwide for their unmatched beauty. The first reason for this is the ethnic
diversity of the country. Second, Russian women love to look attractive, and
they devote much time to their looks. Meeting an elegantly dressed lady walking
down the street in high heels when the temperature outside is far below zero is
a common thing here. In recent times, however, female residents of big cities
are increasingly giving preference to comfortable clothes. But fashionistas in
Russia still don’t forget about style and femininity.

Do you still think that
British women wear classic coats and tartan fabrics on a daily basis? Certainly
not! Girls here know how to mix and match pieces that are seemingly
unmatchable. They aren’t afraid to experiment with styles and love to add
bright accents to their looks. English women always stay one step ahead of
world fashion, and they don’t care about trends because London is the place
where trends are born.

Fashion in this country is
changing very rapidly. Not long ago, China was a nation of shopaholics where
girls snapped up everything in sight. Today, however, Chinese women are
developing their own style. Chinese fashionistas love clothes with logos,
bright accents, and beautiful jewelry. They are not afraid to experiment and
always look for something different.
