Pre-Europe fashion stereotypes

When it comes to fashion, it is said that Europe is the homeland of any new and electrifying trends. Considering that London, Paris and Milan are the fashion capitals of the world, it makes sense to assume that Europe knows what’s what about fashion.

With this in mind, Sycamore Style Guide will be taking an adventure in just a few short days. We are headed across the big lake and traveling across various European countries. From London to Paris and Rome to Florence we will be observing the fashion throughout the continent.

Before we leave, however, we wish to attempt an experiment of sorts. What is our goal? To determine whether the following ‘European fashion stereotypes’ are true. Based on the next five stereotypes, we will take on Europe and compare fashion trends with what we think and what truly is. 

Common European Fashion Stereotypes:

1. The cliché black and white striped shirt

2. Europeans do not wear jeans

3. Red lipstick for all occasions


 4. Perfume and yes, cigarettes


5. Berets, berets, berets!

After our 10 day long adventure across Europe, we will report back on what kind of fashion really can be expected when traveling across the European countries.

And remember: “Fashion is an imposition, a reign of freedom.” – Golda Meir

Orion Schlosser
Orion Schlosser, Leaflet Editor-in-Chief
Hello, my name is Orion Schlosser and I am one of the Editor-in-Chief’s of our online magazine, The Leaflet. I am accompanied by my sister, Zoe Schlosser who is the other Editor-in-Chief of The Leaflet. I have been apart of Journalism for four years and I have loved every minute of it. I have learned everything from how to write an article to how to design full pages of info graphics and quick reads. As a senior, I am looking forward to making the most of this school year and involving myself in anything and everything that interests me. One organization that I am involved in and have been involved in since freshman year is Unified for Uganda. I am the Sponsorship Coordinator, meaning I am ultimately responsible for finding families, groups, or individuals who have an interest in sponsoring a Ugandan child in need. By sponsoring, one child receives an education, clothes, a meal a day, medical attention, and supplies for school. By sponsoring, one child is given the opportunity to live a better life. In my free time, when I am not busy with Journalism or U4U, I enjoy being with my friends and family, making the most of the time I have with them. I love going to school events such as football, soccer, and lacrosse games. I have learned throughout high school to do what makes me happy and to live in the moment. This rings true for me especially as I prepare myself for the change I will have to make once this school year comes to an end and as college approaches. I always keep in mind that situations always seem worse in the moment and that it is easier to accept the way things rather than forcing things to be what they are not. Breathe and keep things simple and life will continue on.
