Do you consider yourself to be a trendy person? Always on top of the latest styles in fashion and beauty.

If you answered yes, you can test that theory out now against the findings from a fashion and beauty survey that was conducted recently by a website called

In their survey, StyleSeat asked 1,000 Americans various questions regarding the fashion and beauty trends Americans love the most right now. They questioned people on 48 specific trends, then used Google to help analyze what local fashion and beauty trends look like in each state. Some of their findings were interesting, to say the least.

For instance, supposedly the key fashion trends in the country right now are, cargo pants, tie-dye, and matching sets. While the most popular beauty trends in 2022 are center parts, colored eye makeup, and acrylic nails.

Conversely, the least popular fashion and beauty trends going on at the moment happen to be tiny sunglasses, micro handbags, fake dimples, and bleached eyebrows.

Great! Looks like I'll need to stop wearing my tinted John Lennon sunglasses, and quit dying my eyebrows blonde from now on!

High prices on clothing are playing a big factor right now.

Thanks to the high cost of just about EVERYTHING these days, the survey found that more and more Americans are trying various throwback trends given all the different affordable second-hand store options out there on the market.

Second-hand stores are especially popular with Gen Z Americans. According to StyleSeat, younger Americans really groove on function and nostalgia. Gen Z and Millennials absolutely love all the Y2K throwbacks and the styles tied to the 90s and 2000s.

As a matter of fact, a shift back to the 90s and 2000s in both fashion and beauty styles seems to be all the rage right now in most demographics. Hopefully, you held on to your cargo pants and neon-colored clothing.

So what about South Dakotans? What trends in fashion and beauty are we gravitating towards in 2022?

Well, if you believe StyleSeat's findings, perception is reality when it comes to the Rushmore state. If you give the average South Dakotan a pair of shitkickers and some press-on nails they'll be happy.

When asked, cowboy boots and acrylic nails (okay, granted, acrylic nails are a far cry from press-on nails, but you get the idea) were the top trending things respectively in terms of fashion and beauty in South Dakota.

While it's true that South Dakota might catch a ton of crap from people outside the state when it comes to our two favorite trends in terms of fashion and beauty, things could always be worse, we could be living in North Dakota! The most popular fashion trend up there right now is Crocs!


Ahh the little differences between South and North Dakota, you gotta love it! I wonder if they're wearing socks with those Crocs?



People Say They Hate These 7 Things About Sioux Falls the Most

In the last few years, I've had the opportunity to live in another state after living in Sioux Falls for a decade. Then late last year I moved back to the SooFoo, and I am super happy to have returned.

Sioux Falls has just about everything I like. It's big enough to have lots of opportunities for work and recreation.

Being on the western edge of the 'Midwest' and the eastern edge of the 'Western Frontier' we've got a nice balance of the individualistic pioneer spirit and a strong urban 'We're in this together' attitude.

But, of course, not everything is perfect. People have complaints. On the social-network Reddit, people have even listed their complaints about Sioux Falls. Specifically, the things that hate about living here.

Every year it snows in Sioux Falls. We may live in denial during the spring and summer, but it happens.

When the snow falls on the Falls, life in the city does not stop. We all still have to go to work, school, and the liquor I mean go get snacks.

When you tackle the snowy routes around town you tend to run across six types of drivers in the snow.
