MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee has been named the ninth worst-dressed city in America! The ranking came from the Movoto blog, who made the effort to find out which American cities aren’t really into fashion.

On its website, the blog says: “There are some well-known bastions of fashion, such as New York and Los Angeles, and some areas such as Texas that are associated with certain styles—cowboy up!—but there really aren’t any widely accepted polar opposites of haute couture capitals. So, we realized it was up to us to crown 10 places where your chances of dressing to impress are sure to meet with less success.”

The 10 Worst Dressed Big Cities in America are as follows:

1. Wichita, KS
2. Colorado Springs, CO
3. El Paso, TX
4. Jacksonville, FL
5. Louisville, KY
6. Tulsa, OK
7. Albuquerque, NM
8. San Antonio, TX
9. Milwaukee, WI
10. Indianapolis, IN

The website went with a few different criteria to determine its list of worst-dressed cities, including:

  • High-end clothing stores per capita
  • High-end jewelry stores per capita
  • High-end shoe stores per capita
  • Tailor shops offering alterations
  • Number of schools offering fashion-related fields
