You certainly won’t find the latest trends and up-to-the-minute fashions on the streets of Holland. At least, that is according to the results of a recent survey conducted by an international online travel search site in anticipation of International Fashion Week, being held this month in a number of major cities around the globe.
The travel site concerned asked some 12,000 people which countries they considered to be well dressed in general – and there were some rather surprising results! Naturally, it came as no surprise that Italy was number one on the list of most fashionable countries, yet who would have thought that Great Britain would rank fourth, directly after Spain and France, in that same list?! Of course, the fact that the majority of the survey participants were British, may have influenced the results somewhat…
And Russia took the unfortunate crown for least fashionable country in the world, with the Netherlands coming in second place, closely followed by Turkey, Germany and Sweden. Now, whilst Holland may not exactly be known as a global centre for cutting-edge fashion, it’s still a disappointing blow that this tiny nation was actually voted the second worst dressed country in the entire world. Maybe foreigners haven’t yet shaken the stereotypical image of Dutch people going about their daily lives clad in a pair of traditional clogs and a typical orange hat!?
