Fashion is one hell of a tough nut to crack. For most of us, it’s somewhat similar to that one cursed mathematical equation from high school that still gives you nightmares. And for a few lucky ones, thousands of inspirational Pinterest boards later and they’re rocking a red beret like a Hollywood A-lister off duty.

But according to this hilarious Twitter thread, you wouldn’t pass looking like this in Ireland. “Props to anyone who tries to be fashionable in Ireland. I wore a red beret once in Waterford and someone called me super Mario,” tweeted an author who goes by the handle @janky_jane.

Twitter immediately caught up with her, and a whopping 132.7K likes later, we have some of the most entertaining stories of getting savagely roasted for their sense of style on the streets of Ireland. So next time you’re in Belfast and thinking of rocking that long fake fur coat you got in a thrift store at Bricklane Market, you'd better opt for something, or anything else, really.

If you ask for a definition of the Irish sense of fashion, it would be mission impossible. In our globalized world, “national’’ fashion simply does not exist. International fashion trends are sweeping across the globe despite geographical coordinates and that’s the whole beauty of it.

One of the biggest trends of the past decade is sustainable fashion. This has to do with our global shift towards ‘slower’ and more mindful consumption. More low-profile, local fashion creators are coming to the market and Irish brands are no exception. One great example of a conscious Irish brand is Native Denim. “We put in what the high street takes out,” is the company mantra and though €170 may be a lot for a pair of jeans, they guarantee it for 5 years, but they bet it’s gonna last 20.

You can’t have that heritage classic look without a quality Irish tweed. The Landskein is another sustainable name in Irish fashion that specializes in stylish tweed coats and jackets made in Donegal tweed. The materials, linings and fusing they use are to Oeko standards, meaning they test the textiles for harmful substances, plastic polybags are biodegradable and buttons are made from natural horn.

Another great Irish brand to follow is Stable Of Ireland, founded by two friends Sonia Reynolds and Frances Duff, who seek to transform Irish heritage fabrics and give them a modern and stylish look. Think of crochet tops, Irish linen shawls, scarves, handknitted Aran sweaters and similar goodness.

There was a footballer once called Fitzroy Hall so everyone called him 'one size'. True, that.

I think I am moving to Ireland. Great sense of humor, it seems. Right down my alley. They say what I am, sometimes, not saying.
