How to dress in cities

Also, the people of India have a very unique fashion sense, which can make it a bit tricky for outsiders and other visitors to comprehend.
On Twitter, Ayush Pranav created a chart based that showed how one should dress in four of the major cities in India. He shares, “how to dress based on where you are” and added the chart.

According to the chart, Bengaluru falls in the comfortable and unstylish category. Mumbai comes in as stylish and comfortable category. While Delhi falls in the stylish and uncomfortable category. Chennai, on the other hand, falls on the uncomfortable and unstylish box. The chart is inspired by a similar chart that was based on four American cities – Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Washington DC.
The now-viral tweet has made the internet debate about the subject. The tweet has been viewed over 206K times and has received more than 1.8 K likes and many retweets and comments. Many agreed with the chart and took it lightly, while some called it a broad stereotype. People who live in these four cities gave their opinion on the chart.

Extremely biased outlook on Chennai.
a. Veshti ain't comfortable, if that's what is meant.
b. Not everyone goes around in Veshti in corporate circles
c. Lastly, if women outfit is considered, our sense of fashion is as good as it is in all other cities.

It cannot be generalized. It depends from person to person. If people are comfortable with traditional outfits, I can bet Chennai is the best. If people are comfortable with western outfits, then Mumbai or Bengaluru is good. So let's stop looking down upon our culture!!
