Yes, DH and I stand out as Americans. We're both wearing jeans, he has a ski jacket and while I have a short black trench, I do wear white sneakers (with red rhinestones and a tattoo style heart and rose on the back). But we both have the scarves. Scarves are everywhere! Even when people are inside, they keep on their scarves! Men, women, children - scarves are THE fashion accessory. Wrapped, tied, loose, floating, tucked - scarves!
Women are also into tights or leggings - always with boots, often with long sweaters or tunics but just as often with short shorts. And, as I said, boots - usually with heels. So yes, I stand out with my sneaks.
Sweaters are also in - pullovers, rarely cardigans. Few hats. Dark colors, mostly. Then the occasional turquoise coat, or pink tie and pocket square.
We'll see what NYE brings in terms of fashion.
