Average Western European dressing style
Casual, comfortable, subtly sexy, chic, impossible to tell whether the outfit is expensive or not. Emphasis on the oversized handbag which indicates that this woman spends a lot of time away from home due to her professional obligations
Average Eastern European dressing style:
Uncomfortable, attention-seeking, ridiculously over the top for the occasion, usually with designer tag in a visible spot so that everyone can tell this woman has a sugar daddy
Now - humour aside -
I guess in Eastern Europe and especially post-communist countries there is a tendency towards eccentricity and the showing off of newly acquired wealth.
Whereas in Western Europe where everyone has been well off financially for quite some time now, there's no need for competition on such a level (who's wearing the most expensive clothes). So the emphasis shifts to practicality.
I saw some thing like this on the beach the other day, my first thought was: eastern European.Average Eastern European dressing style:
Fortune favors the bold.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
Designer tags visible: IM's sunglasses!
When I write in red, I'm Admin.
When I write in black, I'm just me!
Not so much these days:
Eastern Europeans tend to wear less first, and they tend to look a bit tacky. Eastern European women stick out in Switzerland because they look like prostitutes to be brutally honest.
Edited just because!

Description of Serbs by Londoners in 1896
No matter what era, or what country, the general style of the West is always usually plain, solid colours. Eastern dress (Middle East, India, China, East Europe and Russia) dress in very rich rainbow colours with decourations and patterns in different colours.
