Fashion Profile: Exploring the Style of Vancouver
The City of Casual
Vancouver Canada is famously known for its seamless blend of ocean, mountains, and modernity. True to its west coast atmosphere, the city’s fashion profiles reflect a laid-back, outdoorsy culture. While Vancouver may not be a ‘high fashion’ destination, you can count on spotting a few distinctive styles as you walk about. Make sure to bring Vancouver’s staple accessory — an umbrella!
Here’s a glance at five style personas from our home town.
The Casual Wanderer
Vancouver is an idyllic city for walking, which is why many find themselves reaching for their sneakers when it comes to a long day. This fashion type is a popular one, with examples in all corners of the city. Days spent meandering between beaches and coffee shops deserve to be spent in comfort. Who said sporty couldn’t be stylish?
You’ll find this artsy style lingering around organic coffee shops and passing through local music festivals. Vancouver’s hipster is defined (but don’t let them hear you say that) by simple silhouettes, statement glasses, and deftly distressed fabrics. A favoured look by local artists, craft beer connoisseurs, and the creatively expressive.
This Vancouver style is a tribute to fashion capitals around the world, quirky accessories mandatory. You’ll find this lavish but eccentric look parading in and out of luxury boutiques, or driving around town in swanky, sports cars. Fashion for those with a taste for the finer things in life, and a spirit for fun.
The Vancouverite is an avid explorer. These adrenaline junkies can be seen scaling the surrounding mountains or biking through forest trails at top speed. For obvious reasons, their style favours practically above all else. High impact sportswear designed for Vancouver’s notorious rainfall take these adventurers wherever they need to go.
Out of its many diverse districts, Vancouver is home to a number of glamorous neighbourhoods. Amidst the surrounding cafes and posh restaurants you’re bound to find this distinctly feminine professional look. Characterized by killer heels and an even more deadly attitude, these high power femme fatales mean business.
