Long Tall Sally has worked with trend consultants to reveal which is THE fashion piece, print or accessory that is currently the most popular across 20 of the most stylish cities around the world, from London and Paris to lesser-known fashion hubs like Seoul, Melbourne and Dubai.

To pinpoint what real women across the globe are actually wearing, trend consultants monitored ‘outfit of the day’ posts on Instagram, Pinterest and street style blogs from a mixture of cities across 20 countries. Alongside well-known fashion destinations like Paris, London, Milan and New York, the research delves into the style of the fashion capitals of the next generation, such as Lagos, Seoul, Berlin and Bogota. The result is {{a unique snapshot of the fashion and style of real women, from 20 cities, across six continents }}.

Surprisingly, in Paris it’s the humble white tee that is currently trending on the streets of the fashion capital of the world. In contrast, Francophiles are taking over the streets of Tokyo, with colourful berets a firm favourite amongst fashionistas in Japan’s capital.

The research shows that millennial pink is here to stay, with Melbourne embracing it with cropped trousers, Berlin loving the shade for their 70s panelled suits and Shanghai pairing oversized sleeves with the on-trend light pink hue.

As we enter winter, there’s also plenty of outerwear inspiration on offer from the streets of Milan, Stockholm, New York and Copenhagen. The stand out trends include belted coats in Milan, statement coats in Stockholm, check blazers in Copenhagen and colourful faux fur coats in New York.
