50 Questionable Fashion Choices This Foreigner Living In China Captured
Nowhybecausechina is an Instagram page run by a foreigner living in China that documents all sorts of weird and unusual things they encounter living there. And one of those things is a rather questionable fashion sense.
“On my Instagram page, I try to provide cultural context for why things in China happen the way they do, by explaining some of the history, the culture or the language, and how these things influence behaviors or even fashion,” explained the author of the page in an interview with Bored Panda. “The page is not all about fashion though. It’s anything that you can ask the question of ‘Why?’ or ‘How did that happen?’ to, with the general classic answer being ‘No why’ #nowhy (Chinese response) OR ‘because China’ #becausechina (foreigner in China response).”
The author explains that using English makes you look educated and fashionable and since a lot of people aren’t that great at the language, rude and vulgar statements are pretty common – even on kids’ clothing. Other times people just do not care what’s written on their clothes – as long as they’re comfortable.
