    I’m south American and fashion here is either flip flops + football team t-shirt or literally just copying what people see on IG from European and american influencers

      Which sucks because climate in South America is far warmer and swampier depending on the region. Fashion for men is far easier when you can work with layers. Otherwise 80% of fashion is being physically fit. I wish there were more people who cared about fashion in hot climates, not "warm" like people claim California, Florida or Southern Italy to be, but truly hot.

        so is that really it then? global fashion is just whatever some white person in EU/US did? They see someone there do it and suddenly Pajeet in India and Pablo in Mexico is copying it?
        Only exception seems to be Asia which copies Japan which has their own style

        >copying white people
        how are you on a fashion board and think white people are setting trends? the biggest latin stars dress like rappers which are the people who set the trends in the states and europe. Also you havent been to Asia, everybody dresses like KPOP stars, even in Japan the trendy girls act like those korean girls.

      That’s honestly really sad. Off the top of my drunk head, 70s Brazilian and Mexican fashion are both dope. (Yes I know Mexico is in North America).

      I actually had an idea back in the day for line combining French Riviera styles with Uruguayan guachos. Read somewhere that Punta del Este is like the French Riviera of South America or some bullshit.

    All zoomers look like American ones, broccoli hair and all
    Old people don’t give a shit about fashion, it’s more about function. Ex: lawyers dress like lawyers, if it’s cold everyone wears those awful puffy black jackets

    if you’re poor than fashion really is just a soccer jersey + shorts and flip flops

    if you"re middle class, then it’s just copying whatever you see on tiktok. I’m a zoomer and i know people that wear Emo fashion, kpop fashion is also really popular here, streetwear etc.

    it’s all about having money to buy the clothes you want lol

      I often wear a white cotton shirt with the sleeves rolled up, a pair of medium-brown linen shorts and some loafers, a belt matching the shoes and my Seiko 5 with a strap matching the belt.

      These are my go-to casual looks. Colors on items can vary, but I always make sure the watch strap, shoes and belt are somewhat matched.

      Don’t know how well this look would fare on someone who is not white, though.

    México:
    -all day denim for men; anywhere in any weather at any time of the year. That’s right you can see men wearing denim at 40°C (104°F)
    -women have a little more to choose from so you can see 30+ walruses stuffed into yoga pants and 15 year old girls dressed like street prostitutes but they also don’t change their wardrobe with the passing of the seasons. Very unpleasant.

    >Is this entire part of the world completely devoid of any sense of fashion?
    Yes, seeing someone with taste is so rare I’m genuinely taken aback when it happens

    I live in Bogotá and people are pretty stylish in the medium and high class neighborhoods, on par of what you’ll normally see in a big city on the us, the only difference is people dont buy luxury as much of course. I guess its because its a cold city so people have more options.

    Rest of the country is shit and people dress like your typical favela monkeys, yeah.

    I think Argentina has the best dressed people if you think among conventional lines.
    Brazil has the most unique stuff going on.
    Also pretty impressed with Colombia and Venezuela.
    Chile, Costa Rica and Panama are too influenced by the US to look good.
    Peru also better than expected.

    In general the bigger the city the more fa the people.

      Argentina can barely eat once a day, I don’t think they care much about fashion although surprisingly they try hard to pretend that everything is going smoothly. I don’t know if it’s their blind nationalism or what, but they are experts in the art of self-deception.

    from Brazil here, honestly, I’d say it’s outright impossible to be /fashion/ in here:
    >you can’t find any of the good designer/brands that exist out there
    >shit of at best medium quality is overpriced as heck
    >if you live anywhere above São Paulo, good luck it never gets cold
    >in the places that it does get cold, it’s only for 3 months and ain’t even THAT cold enough for actual layering
    I’ve seen videos of street interviews in Argentina and, people there seem to dress slightly better honestly, no clue if it’s cause Buenos Aires actually has pretty urbanism or what

    They literally hang out half-naked and have sex with their friends as frequently as you would text yours. They don’t need any fashion when they’re culturally naked.

      Yep. Most people in the tropical countries used to be half naked throughout history, even the women, until colonialism forced them to "cover up" thanks to the puritanism of christcuckery. And it wasn’t because they were a bunch of savages who couldn’t invent proper clothes. It was simply more practical to not wear too many clothes in the tropical heat.
