The Milanese are the coolest dressers in Europe according to a new poll from TripAdvisor. The trendy inhabitants of Milan beat out their counterparts in Paris, Rome and London thanks to the way they translate catwalk looks to the streets, according to the survey of 3,000 European travellers.
Parisian fashion lovers came second and Roman trendies third, followed by fashionistas in Barcelona, Madrid and London. Stockholm was seventh, followed by Florence, Copenhagen and Amsterdam.
Istanbulites were voted the worst dressed in Europe.
