We usually lay our head to Hollywood stars in a bid to have our style patterned after theirs. But not only stars and our status influence our style and sense of fashion but cities contribute in influencing our style and the trends we follow as well. Whenever we check pictures of chic dresses and street outfits on Pinterest, we are amazed by the outfits and the background, streets, combined. Every city has its own style which is reflected in its richness in its stores and boutiques.

Like Dallas, Texas, Miami has a significant magazine, MIAFW Mag, that contains what the city is flaunting. The magazine includes insider info on Miami Fashion Week and the best malls and stores at which we can shop. Miami is that kind of city where you can let your hair down, ride a bike alongside the beach or do summer activities. However, it does not have the reputation of being vintage of classical.

2 New York City, New York
It has been deep-rooted for me to observe every outfit flaunted by actresses in Hollywoodian movies set in New York. I have always seen actresses like Jennifer Garner, Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz flaunting the streets of New York with outfits that all I could do is to fix my gaze on them and as soon as the movie ends I would check my closet and try to match clothing items together in a bid pattern my style after theirs.
New York is in a special slot that has been made for it solely. It seems like New York is the most potential winner when it comes to every competition in which it takes part. New York is not just a great city with various brand stores and retailers but also it has the best fashion design schools, FIT, Parsons, and Pratt Institute. Moreover, we cannot leave In Support Of, an alluring store on Elizabeth Street, unnoticed.
1 Los Angeles, California
We have read the term ‘California Girl” in various fashion magazines. The term conjures up a picture of a beautiful blonde girl, wearing simple plain T-shirts, denim, and sunglasses. It is a picture that has been exploited in numerous movies alongside beach girls and surfing dudes. All we can assure is that Los Angeles is a city of beaches, palms and killing outfits and style. What do you expect from LA, where Hollywood stars reside?
What makes LA special is the fashion program at Otis College of Art and Design, the museum at the Los Angeles campus of FIDM, and other heaps of fashion programs, fashion shows, and schools.
