For those of us who love nothing more than following the latest trends, it can be hard to find a holiday destination that feeds our fashionista fire. If you don’t want to be surrounded by people in ugly flip flops and Hawaiian shirts, then you probably tend to avoid most touristy destinations. However, it’s not all bad news. There are some pretty awesome places around the globe, perfect for fashion lovers. Get your fashion and travel fix in one of these top cities.
Armani, Versace, Prada and Gucci. Need we say anymore? Milan is the hub of Italian style and home to some of the biggest fashion houses in the world. Walking through the streets of this city you’ll never see someone who isn’t perfectly made out. Designer handbags and shoes are everywhere in Milan, so make sure you pack enough. You can’t be seen in the same outfit twice, darling!
Some parts of London are absolute fashion nightmares. The rest of this UK city makes up for them though. This is where the swinging sixties style was born. It was where the Paul Smith suit generation came from. London has always been the first for quirky fashion and you’ll not be disappointed with what’s on offer. Head to one of the many markets and grab yourself some eye-popping vintage pieces.
You didn’t think we were going to forget about Paris, did you? This French city has often been hailed as the fashion capital of the world. Pretty much everything you’ve ever seen in Vogue came from Paris. Don’t forget it hosts one of the biggest fashion weeks in the world. Twice a year. It’s not all berets and baguettes, in the French capital.
This coastal town is a holiday favourite of the rich and famous. So, expect to see some truly showstopping designer pieces on everyone you meet. The weather is incredible, the clothes are incredible, and the food is incredible. What’s not to love? Make sure you hit the beaches and top up your tan. For some real St Tropez luxury book yourself into a holiday villa, too!
For a shopping experience you’ll never forget, head to The Big Apple. The department stores rise hundreds of storeys into the air. The big name brands are on every street corner. And some of the biggest fashion magazines in the world have their headquarters here. Everywhere you look in New York City, there will be someone wearing something chic.
If you have an eclectic style, then you have to head over to Tokyo, in Japan. The mix of colours and fabrics here will make your head spin. In a good way. From Manga to Neon, there is something here for everyone who loves quirky. The locals will give you more inspiration than you can shake a stick at.
From Milan to Tokyo, these cities tick all the boxes for a fashion lover’s holiday. Whether you want to go haute-couture, vintage or downright funky, you’ll find something to suit your style in one of these cities.
