Austin is a beautiful place, and not just because of the nature you find here. As a hotspot for 20-somethings to move post-college, my city is filled with loads of pretty, stylish people. Walking down certain hip streets is often intimidating (in the fashion sense), and don’t even get me started on how amazing everyone else looks during South By Southwest. (Emphasis on “everyone else.” I sadly lack the super-fashionista gene.) So, while I was surprised to see it way at number eight on Travel + Leisure‘s “Best Dressed Cities in America” list, I wasn’t shocked that it made the cut (no thanks to me). Did your city wind up on the list? Find out here!
The magazines asked readers to weigh in on stylishness in their own cities, and here were the results:
1. New York City
3. Los Angeles
4. San Juan, P.R.
6. San Francisco
9. Dallas/Fort Worth
10. San Diego
This is obviously just a fun, arbitrary list, so no worries if your town didn’t make it. (My hometown, Saint Louis, didn’t!) Or if its on the least stylish list:
2. Salt Lake City
5. San Antonio
6. Dallas, Texas (So Dallas/Fort Worth made most stylish, but Dallas alone stinks?)
8. Portland, Maine
10. Kansas City
Austin aside, I haven’t been to many of the cities on either list, so I have no judgement calls here! I’m sure there are plenty of fashion-forward (and backward) men and women in any city. [via Fashionista]
Did your city make either list? Are you surprised by any of the poll results?
