Is your city fashionable?
Residents of most cities feel their style is the best, but Bundle.com recently put this to the test. The data crunching business recently broke down who's hot and who's not in terms of fashion in all 50 states and the answers may surprise some people.
To accurately assess this, the company selected 50 of the largest cities in the U.S. based on population data and then ranked each one according to the percentage of "fashion-conscious households" in each city. This was determined by homes that had at least four purchases at high-end stores in the past 30 months.
According to the data, the most fashionable city in the country is Irvine, California, home of the rich and famous. Although this spot may be the most elite in terms of high end clothes, other cities ranked in high based on their flair for individuality and love of hip hop clothes.
Other big name cities like New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Dallas were among the top 10, mainly due to the convenience of having plentiful shoe stores and clothing stores all in one place.
Some of the least stylish cities were Buffalo, New York and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
BET reports Boston, Massachusetts, came in at number 10, while Brooklyn and the Bronx in New York made the cut at the 19th and 40th spot respectively.
