If there’s one thing that The Only Way is Essex has taught us it’s that people in Essex like to enjoy a bit of glitz and glamour. Ok, so it might also have taught us that they don’t often do it in a very stylish way, but at least they are trying.
Of course, the rest of the county is not really like the “reality” show but people in Essex do enjoy a bit of glitz. With everything from the cars, the shops and even the new builds in Essex designed with glamour in mind, you can be sure you’re getting the maximum glitz for your money.
You can’t underestimate the importance of a car to a glamorous lifestyle in Essex. In fact, some people are defined by their cars and spend huge amounts of money making them look as good as possible. With a fancy paint job, some new alloy wheels and a few other interior and exterior features, you can glam up your car in no time.
Many new developments in Essex are aimed at young professionals and young families, meaning they come with their fair share or glitz already. However, that’s not to say you can’t add a touch of personalised glam to your house with some stylish furniture and accessories. Make your home your own with some bold colours schemes, furniture and fabrics.
In Essex, going out is a big deal. People are really friendly and sociable, so making friends should be very easy. Whether it’s going for a few drinks at the weekend to the pub or hitting the newest club in town, Essex folk like to be seen dressed up and out and about.
Also of huge importance in Essex, is the way in which you dress says a lot about you. Great emphasis is put on looking the part depending on the situation. Even going to the gym involves a careful choice of outfit; which gives you a great excuse to do a bit of shopping, another essential part of the Essex lifestyle.
Without doubt, Essex is a county that enjoys its glitzy and glamorous side, but it also doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s all a bit of fun and about making life more interesting, and all done with good humour too, which you can’t always say about the glamorous life in other places.
