Modern Turkey has a little of everything. It is made up of bustling cosmopolitan centers, farming villages, beautiful Aegean, Mediterranean and Black Sea coastlines, and steep mountain regions. More than 70% of Turkish people lives in urban areas. Western lifestyles and traditional ways of life coexist.

Females are wearing short dresses, maxi style dresses, shorts, miniskirts, skirts, and many different types of trousers. Flip fops, sandals and flats are the preferred shoe styles.

Hats are worn for protection from the sun and the big bag is very popular because you can get tons of stuff in it like sunscreen and camera.

Stripes, prints, florals, and polka dots are all over the fashions and Turkish women love color, ruffles, and shine.
