Style face-off: Buenos Aires vs Dallas

Following the style face-off series, Buenos Aires is pitted against Dallas.

BUENOS AIRES DALLAS
 

Makeup

Very little. But women do love their perfume. Lots! Especially this airbrushed effect that looks so artificial. Stepford Wives, anyone?
 

Hair

Long and layered. With highlights or dyed blonde. Older women favour shoulder-length bobs. Big Southern hair. Dolly Parton’s wannabes.
 

Fashion trends

Skinny jeans and leggings with flowy tops during the day. Miniskirts and high heels for going out. Harem pants are the latest rage (sorry girls, you look like you’re wearing diapers underneath)

Local women follow fashion to a T (whether it suits them or not.)

Women follow trends to a T (whether they should is a different kettle of fish). Some really shouldn’t. Middle aged women do like their Capri pants.
Cosmetic surgery Gives Dallas a run for its money. Botox, collagen, boob and nose jobs are rampant. Fake boob and Botox central
Nails Natural. Red. Dark colours. Long, fake talons
 

Colours

Lots of black for work and play. Otherwise, it depends on which colour is in fashion that season. Lots of pink
Summer footwear of choice Leather boots in winter, strappy sandals and flip-flops in summer. Flip flops galore (all year round)
Jewellery Colourful necklaces in the warmer months. Big and bold
Skinny jeans and boots (am I a fashion victim too???)
