Anchorage Named Worst Dressed City
ANCHORAGE - When weather is as unpredictable as Anchorage's, it's sometimes hard to think about dressing fashionably.
Well, apparently Outsiders have noticed because Anchorage has been named the worst dressed city in America.
That is according to Travel and Leisure Magazine, whose readers rated major destinations on the fashion scale. Anchorage falls so short, it got the lowest grade.
KTVA let some local residents have their say about that and many of them agreed; having cold snowy weather nine months out of the year tends to shift ones priorities from trying to look trendy to just staying warm.
"I think Anchorage is like one big, giant airport," said G.W. Neal "There so many people from everywhere up here, everybody style kind of meshes, people pick up from other people's style and it makes one big weird style."
Lulu E. Bebe's woman's fashion store seems to think you just need to be able to explore and try new things. "Know matter what you wear just make sure you feel comfortable," said Kyrsten Fisher, a sales associate.
