Birmingham rates itself best dressed summer city in the UK, but Ireland better dressed by far

The UK’s most confidently garbed city this summer is not our capital but in fact Birmingham; home to the Floozie in the Jacuzzi and some rather legendary heavy metal. This was perhaps the most surprising finding in this year’s Access Self Storage ‘Hot to trot’ survey which asked members of the public to rank their summer wardrobes on a scale of one (‘Terrible - I look like I dress in the dark’) to ten (‘Catwalk glam – naturally darling’).

So without further ado here are the top five UK and Irish cities by average assessment of state of summer wardrobe:

Remember that if you rank more towards the 'Terrible - I look like I dress in the dark' end of the scale, that if it isn't in now, it's only a matter of time - retro is always in! Maybe just pop some of your more hideous garments in storage until they don't make people's eyes bleed anymore.
