LONDON -- British people are the worst-dressed holidaymakers in Europe followed by Germans, while the Italians and French are the smartest, according to a survey released on Friday.
The findings came despite 36 percent of Britons — who are famed for fashion blunders like wearing socks with sandals — admitting that they dress more adventurously than usual while on a break.
The survey also looked at how good people from different countries are at switching off from the pressures of work while taking a break.
A massive 87 percent of travellers from France said they checked their work emails while on holiday compared to over a quarter of Britons.
