Fashion and clothing in the USA

The history of American fashion originates many decades ago, when the prevailing trend was folk motifs. Since then, much has changed and American women have become real trendsetters: numerous shopping tours, brand stores, and luxury clothing manufacturers confirm this.

Finding a representative of American culture is not difficult: just pay attention to his clothes. The most prominent features here will be:

  1. Jeans. An essential element of both women's and men's wardrobe will be jeans. Comfortable, stylish, fashionable style. Most Americans would prefer jeans to the classics - and this will be appropriate even at work.
  2. Color range. A big mistake that Americans use only practical colors in their wardrobe. In fact, representatives of this culture boldly prefer bright colors and are not afraid to combine unexpected colors.
  3. Elements of a sports wardrobe. Naturally stylish, branded and expensive. Here you can separately select T-shirts (Nike, Adidas), sneakers or sneakers (New Balance, Puma), baseball caps (Reebok, Vans), etc.

Of course, not the last role is played by the hairstyle, manner of speech, culture of behavior, immediately issuing an American in the crowd. See for yourself by visiting amazing America with American Butler.

Impact of other cultures

Formation of the American style in clothing for a single century occurred with the constant external influence of other cultures. It is very important to note here the influence of the following European countries:

  • Germany;
  • Italy;
  • Ireland;
  • Poland.

It is necessary to pay special attention to carefree Hawaiians who took part in the formation of the American style, as well as African slaves, who undoubtedly contributed to the motifs of clothing of the inhabitants of this continent.

Compared with many other countries, the dress code in America is distinguished by a minimal level of severity with a footnote for increased convenience and comfort. Experts particularly note the following features of the business style of American clothing:

  1. The shoulders, abdomen and back are necessarily closed. Comfort a priori displaces any vulgarity and frankness, which is why today's baggy and loose-fitting things can be so often met in the boutiques of American megalopolises.
  2. Of course, in some organizations there is a special dress code or uniform. This applies to all sorts of schools or universities. Accordingly, any uniform here is universal, and sometimes suggests some ways for self-expression.
  3. Modesty and rigor. If it is not customary in an organization to wear certain dress code, then employees more often prefer universal gray or black shades, neutral models that are comfortable and simple.

It is often difficult in America to understand whether a certain person is a home programmer or is a millionaire in front of you. American culture to dress "by the dress code" is, first of all, restraint and modesty, without any fanciful elements. Remember Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg.

Culture dress stylish

Modern American fashion is very young. It began to take shape in the early 20th century, with local stylists rejecting such common postulates as a focus on pathos, luxury, and wealth. Initially, American designers relied on the needs of the common man, namely, comfort and simplicity.

American women of fashion can buy cheap and simple dress, but never cheap shoes. This country of workaholics, who are accustomed to work hard (and physical labor plays a significant role here), does not allow ladies a lot of time to go in high heels. Hairpin - only for individual cases. Sneakers - for every day.
