By Luke Keleher, 3 May 2016

Perched on Puget Sound on America's west coast, and famed for its futuristic Space Needle and heavy tech industry presence, Seattle is also up there as a sartorially clued-up metropolis. We've pulled together a look that channels its cultural heritage and modern dynamism, as well as a few sightseeing recommendations.

Perched on Puget Sound on America's west coast, and famed for its futuristic Space Needle and heavy tech industry presence, Seattle is also up there as a sartorially clued-up metropolis. We've pulled together a look that channels its cultural heritage and modern dynamism, as well as a few sightseeing recommendations.

Do this: Seattle is a city rich with music history – it was an early stomping ground of Ray Charles and Quincy Jones as well as the birthplace of Jimi Hendrix and the Nirvana-led 90s grunge scene. When planning your trip, make sure you plot in time to take in some live tunes at local scene cornerstone The Crocodile. 

 

Alternatively, pitch up in Gas Works Park for a chilled-out afternoon of people watching in one of the key filming locations for 10 Things I Hate About You. If you’re looking to take in some (pop) culture during your trip, head to the EMP Museum, a Frank Gehry-designed temple to all things contemporary and populist, from guitars to sci-fi costumes.
