YOU Voted Liverpool The Most Stylish City In Our North West Street Chic Fash Clash

26 April 2013 by

Earlier this week the fashion battle commenced! In the latest issue of Grazia you’ll find a 7-page section dedicated to all of the brilliant things to see, do, drink, shop, eat and simply enjoy in Liverpool and Manchester. These two cities are known for their major fashion scenes, dedicated stylistas and cool street-spotting potential. But who has the very best style? We sent Style Hunter to each city to investigate – and gave you the final say.

And you did, by voting Liverpool the most stylish city with nearly 70% of the vote. Take a look through the Style Hunter pics below and let us know if you agree...


L-R: Aleisha Swindell, Claire Jessica Tighe and Hollie Christian

From punk-meets-1940s-lady mash-ups to styling out spring with a little gothic twang, Liverpool’s best dressed girls aren’t afraid of creating a strong look and taking it through to their expertly finished hair and makeup. We are impressed…


L-R: Rebecca Holdsworth, Marianne Russell Smith and Jessica Jervis

And in Manchester casual was the order of the day. But casual certainly doesn’t equal boring for these snappy dressers. Cue statement-making feather coats, leather leggings, velvet pants and denim dungarees.  Good going girls…

Even with sub-zero temperatures and relentless snow the dedicated best-dressed of Liverpool and Manchester are just as good at defiantly rocking a crop top as they are at interesting layering techinques.

Faye Cathy Dean (Wed Apr 24 00:12:57 BST 2013): No idea where you went in Manchester, but I don't find a ladder in tights fashionable or elegant. And that is not a true representation of mancunian women's style.
Karyn Dickinson (Wed Apr 24 00:21:34 BST 2013): Liverpool is more edgy..even when it is more than often OTT...they just don't give a crap what anyone thinks...that's in it's self is a fashion statement.
Catherine Ann Houghton (Wed Apr 24 06:08:49 BST 2013): Being a scouser and working in Manchester I always find myself overdressed on Manc nights out. Liverpool is much more stylish day or night!
Olga Bednarski (Wed Apr 24 10:40:53 BST 2013): all these girls dressed like homeless that fashionable? or its just me too old?

Victoria Holmes (Wed Apr 24 11:17:36 BST 2013): I'm from Manchester and I would vote Liverpool based on those shockers but to be fair neither of them are stylish - they all just look like scruffy students, who on earth took these photos there are much better dressed people in Manchester and I am sure in Liverpool!

Abigail Latham (Wed Apr 24 16:24:28 BST 2013): You have to remember that grazia have taken pictures of the girls who wear clothing that features in their magazine. These girls are grazia girls. If a different magazine done this vote they would have the "stylish" Manchester / Liverpool girls.
