It seems like much of what is trendy in Vietnam was trendy in places like the USA nearly 20 years ago. I actually quite like a lot of the styles and trends from the late '90s into the early '00s so I think it is cool.
In the urban scene, sure. There are still loads of Vietnamese traditional styles all over, especially when you step outside of the cities. Street wear is a mix of pop American and Japan's street wear.
Alas alas alas, yes ! people now wear the global ugly "American uniform" jeans.T-shirt-stupid baseball cap-sneakers. Fortunately, when the weather is warm, many women change to miniskirt and tank top or blouse not covering their beautiful shoulders, which is extremely sexy and pleasant to see. I do not include of course the mountain minorities, who make a point to dress in their national costumes, the women's ones being the only way to recognize which tribe it is.
Yes, it has. In some places more than others. I think it is part of being "trendy" and feeling included. I think most fashion looks silly. I myself wear mostly just black fabric pants and over-sized sweaters with boots. When it is warmer, I still like to dress conservatively.
Yeah I would say so. I see more if in Vietnam now than I did just 10 years ago. It is crazy. I don't think it is a good thing or a bad thing, I am neutral about it.
It has for sure and you can see it when you follow the trends in the last 3 or 4 decades. It is mainly down to the younger generations living in the major cities and the growth of the pop and rap scenes in Vietnam.
It has, or at least seems to have. I think it is mostly the urban look that you see within the hip hop communities in the West. Some of it looks nice but I do prefer traditional styles within Vietnam.
Fashion tends to move all different ways. A lot of what was in fashion in Japan in the 90s is in fashion in parts of America now, for example. I don't think there is anything wrong with Vietnam taking in western fashion styles. I am sure it will be phased out in the next 10 years and replaced with something else.
