Argentina is sophisticated and true to their European influences. The fashion trends in Argentina are modern, hip and classy. While much of Argentina will always be rooted in deep tradition, the style is undeniably chic. The people of Argentina are all about beauty. The surroundings, their spirits and their physical appearance. It is common for both men and women to have routine skin treatments to stay as clean and polished as possible. The care they show is evident in how they present themselves.

It is not often you will see a disheveled appearance roaming the city. This is important information for travelers from other countries. Many regions are true believers in comfort vs. couture. If you are planning a trip to Argentina, be well packed for the occasion. You want to blend in to your surroundings, not become a topic of conversation. If you are a sweats and a t-shirt guy or gal, consider bringing the dressier side of your closet with you.

Dressed in Argentina

It is custom in Argentina to be dressed for the day and maybe even change in the evening. They prefer clothing that fits and forms versus a baggier style. Men wear jeans and shirts, but not in the casual sense. They still look dressed and proper due to the straight fitting and pristine condition. Women will wear jeans but prefer hugging styles. Gym shoes are rarely seen unless they are working out or taking part in a specific activity that requires them. For the most part, you will see a mix of:

  • Skirts
  • Dress Pant and Shirt
  • Dresses
  • Vests
  • Blouses
  • Fashionable Tops

The interchangeable wardrobe is pressed and neat. You will not see pajamas on the streets or lounging wear at any part of the day except for in the house. Vibrant color is a huge inspiration in Argentina. You will find bright tones are always a hit.

When stepping out in style in Argentina, shoes are an important piece of your ensemble. Since gym shoes or sneakers are not common, you may want to have a few alternatives. The creative side of the country gives a flair for embellishment. Footwear options you want to bring include:

  • Sandals
  • Heels
  • Flats
  • Boots

This may seem like a basic list but there are some specifics. The shoes you will see in town will be ornate and strappy. The precise designer does not matter as long as they look as if they came from the top shelf. Think color and wow factors that will accompany the modish styles. Accessories can be flashy or subdued depending on what you decide to wear. Rings, bracelets and necklaces lean to the shiny side of gold or silver with a number of additions. Purses, scarves and a lot of personality will put the finishing touches to your Argentinean look. Argentina is full of life that complements the vivacious approach to fashion. The pride they have for their country is a beautiful way of life.
