Essex (an English county, east of London) has been given a dubious reputation in recent times. The term 'Essex Girl' is now synonymous with bad taste, easy money, and drunken behaviour.
The Essex Girl is known for her white stilettos, died blonde hair, and sprayed on tan. She is the classic bimbo, with enhanced breasts, and fake Louis Vuitton bags. She's loud mouthed, foul mouthed, and promiscuous. Unless you are Essex Man, she is the sort of person you really wouldn't want to introduce to your mother.
Of course the name is quite unfair, as most of Essex is perfectly pleasant and genteel, and the girls who live there equally so. Beautiful quaint villages are dotted with highly desirable homes for those who wish to commute to London, and the county offers some exceptional countryside and sites of historic interest.
Quite why certain (am I allowed to say 'lower class') young ladies from Essex should CHOOSE to dress (and behave) like prostitutes is unclear, but they do and are proud of the fact.
Essex Girl icon, Posh (above), is the wife of football player David Beckham, and is a classic of the ilk. All Essex Girls want to be like Posh; but overpaid 'available' football players are thin on the ground. Even so, the girls continue to regard 'tarty looks' as much more important than 'intelligence', as that is seen as what footballers are looking for.
If by any chance this has made you want to learn more, and you wish to study them at close range, just keep well clear of Romford (Essex) town centre on a Saturday night.... the pavements are littered with them, and you might just trip over several. Be warned; they bite!
