Question: Brazilian Fashion?
Short Answer: More is More.
Long Answer: Unless you’re talking about swimsuit material, Brazilians seem to think more is more when it comes to fashion. The style is to look “done up” all the time. Heels, tight jeans, tight tops, nails done, lipstick on, hair dyed… This might sound good but unfortunately I think that usually it’s a total bust. Lots of effort, little execution.
Moreover, it is weird for me to come from a place like SF where the trendiest thing to wear to the grocery store was your LuluLemon workout clothes, a messy poney, and a NorthFace fleece. Here, people just don’t walk around in workout gear unless they are *gasp* literally working out. Well shoot – if I did that I would never get to wear the stuff!
Also, even though the annual rainfall here is incredibly high, they don’t believe in RAINBOOTS. Apparently these are only reserved for the GUTTER CLEANERS. Well, I think my Hunter boots are cool no matter what country I’m in, and what’s more, when it rains more here than in Seattle, they are super practical. I get weird looks EVERY time I wear them but I just smile right back because I’m the one who is DRY. aka SMART.
