People from around the globe turn to Pinterest every day to discover everything from new statement pieces to seasonal trends – and they’re looking to other cultures, countries and continents for ways to diversify their style.
Today, there are more than 602 million boards on fashion (psst: board sections make it even easier to organise the items and looks you want to bring to life!) and over 21 billion fashion ideas. When it comes to style, Pinterest is a treasure trove of world-inspired wardrobe pieces.

Maritime fashion: German Pinners have decided to go with maritime looks and accessories (+212%) this summer, maybe inspired by Chanel’s latest collection tributed to the hanseatic city of Hamburg?
Although getting style inspirations from France has long been in vogue, an increasing number of Pinners are turning to Korea and Japan for ideas on what to wear next.
