18 August 2010 – With people heading away for their summer holidays in their millions, a new piece of research has revealed the fashion mistakes people make when going away. The survey pointed out that socks and sandals are the biggest fashion crime on the beach, while also mentioned were beer bellies on show. The survey pointed out too that the Midlands is home to people with the worst holiday dress sense.

The poll surveyed 600 people about what British holidaymakers wear and shouldn’t wear on holiday. Small men’s swimming trunks, women’s thongs, sunburn and clothing with too many logos on were all listed as holiday fashion errors. One third of people say women shouldn’t wear football shirts on holiday, and 1 in 5 said that men shouldn’t wear them either.

The poll showed that those tourists who come from Birmingham and the Midlands possess the worst holiday fashion sense, with travellers and tourists from Newcastle and the North East, Scotland, Essex and then Manchester and the North West following them in the rankings. People hailing from Yorkshire and East England are thought to be the best dressed on holiday.

The survey was conducted by money saving website DiscountVouchers.co.uk, and revealed that the worst dressed nationality on holiday are the Americans. Following US tourists were Germans, the Greeks and the British, with the Italians and Spanish were voted best dressed.

Also shown in the poll was that 83% of people (92% of men) consider men to dress worse than women on holiday, although men are more likely to spend money on new holiday clothing (43%) than women (32%). 57% of men and 68% of women say that they wear holiday fashions which they’ve owned for 5 years or more.

The survey checked out reasons for purchasing new holiday fashions too, with the results showing that two thirds of people buy things if they look good in them, while 20% consider price the biggest factor. 14% of tourists spend under £50 on their holiday wardrobe, while 70% of people spend somewhere between £50 and £200. 2% said that they spend over £500 for holiday clothing.

Simon Terry, managing director of DiscountVouchers.co.uk, said: “Our poll results were pretty fascinating, with Americans being considered the worst dressed on holiday and so on. Our money-saving deals and codes are perfect for helping people to get their hands on bargain fashions ahead of a holiday this summer.”
