Here is an article I have written for http://thezieglersblog.com, a blog (that is closed now) about the experiences of immigrants to Canada.
Even if we find the same clothing stores everywhere in the world, I have noticed that each country has its own trends regarding fashion. There are even local trends. Here is for example how many Vancouverites like to dress in summer:
In brief, if you want to look like a Vancouver girl, wear a colorful T-shirt, shorts, flip-flops, nail polish of your favourite color on your toenails and a large smile. Also hold a cup of ice coffee while walking on the Seawall and admiring the scenery.
Vancouver men wear exactly the same outfit, except for the nail polish 😉
