It may already be considered the fashion capital of Italy, but tourists from all over Europe have confirmed that Milan’s regular residents are the coolest dressers on the continent.

The TripAdvisor poll asked 3,500 respondents to rank regular citizens based on fashion sense. The e-survey confirmed that travelers don’t have to wait until Milan Fashion Week to see trendsetters on the street of the northern Italian city.

Unsurprisingly, poll-takers ranked Parisians high on the fashion sense as well. Paris was considered the second best dressed city, with Rome in third.

Rounding out the top 10 most fashionable European cities were: Barcelona, Madrid, London, Stockholm, Florence, Copenhagen, Amsterdam.

Despite the elegance of their city’s architecture, Istanbul’s residents were seen as the least fashionable. Europe’s other poorly dressed cities were: London, Athens, Antalya, Birmingham, Liverpool, Glasgow, Manchester, Krakow and Gdansk.

London residents had the dubious distinction of making the best and worst dressed lists.

Of the 3523 European travelers who cast their trendsetting votes 778 were British, 532 French, 924 were Italian and 1,289 Spaniards.
