Sydney style and the stereotypes.
Hailing originally from Australia, we feel it’s fair enough for us to break down Sydney style in an honest and truthful way. A no holds barred approach to looking at what makes up the style scene of this textured city.
Sydney has always prized beauty over brains, whether it's the sparkling blue of the harbor, the sensational sails of the Opera House or the tanned bodies haunting Bondi Beach. Sydney certainly values style as much as substance, with the clothes you wear and the suburb you live in denoting your status in the pecking order of the city.
With this in mind, we’re going to take a look at five Sydney-style stereotypes by the suburbs, which take us from sporty chic to elegant streetwear to everywhere in between. Perhaps then you can ask yourself, “Which style stereotype are you?”
