When it comes to fashion and style, we all thought that New York had the crown hands down!
However in the good ol' U.S. of A, according to the data analysis website Bundle, the honor goes to Irvine, California!
You can pick your jaws up from the computer now. We were just as shocked as you were, however Bundle accredits their findings to a "fashion conscious index" that they explained by saying this:
We based our index on the percentage of "fashion-conscious households" in our sample, which we defined as households that had at least four transactions at top-end designer merchants in the past 30 months. Coming in at an unexpected number one was Irvine, CA, which ranked nearly four times above the U.S. average in clothing spending. Home of The O.C. and one of the richest cities in America, Irvine residents can certainly afford those designer duds.
As we all know, style and fashion have nothing to do with how much you can spend, so for now we will just say that New York LET you win, Irvine. No disrespect to your city but c'mon, we both know that New York will out-style you any day, but for now, you won this round.
You can take a look at how the rest of the country stacks up against the likes of New York, Irvine, and Los Angeles in the chart below provided by Bundle.
