The Best Copenhagen Fashion Week Street Style

As it happens...

Let’s just forget New York, London, Paris and Milan for one moment. Hear us out. Every season fashion critics, Insta-bloggers and influencers alike find yet another reason to fall for all things Scandi.

And it comes as no surprise, as twice a year the street style set are happily snapped on the quaint cobbled streets of Copenhagen, only for their pictures to go global.

But what is it about the Danish girls that has the world quickly adopting their Nordic traditions (just look at our newfound obsession with recreating hygge) and imitating their wardrobes? Three Ganni tees and an Acne biker to go please…

Well, the Scandi fash pack have an uncanny knack at achieving the one thing we all set out to sartorially achieve. What is it you may ask? Well, the ability to look effortlessly chic of course.

With barely-there makeup, wide-cuff shirts and floor-skimming trackies - the Scandis have undoubtedly come up with a winning fashion formula. And the rest of us are desperately (if not a little embarrassingly) trying to replicate it.

If you ask us, Copenhagen should be added to the four fashion capitals of the world. Read: New York, London, Paris, Milan and Copenhagen. It has a rather nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

And this season, our northern neighbours have reminded us once more why they deserve a top spot for their globally renowned style.

We’ve rounded up the best trends spotted on the streets you need to adopt ASAP in order to fake it as a Scandi this season:

Graphic Prints

Who said clashing prints couldn't work together? Take your cue from this show-goer and pair two alterntive prints in the same colourway.

Pyjama Shirts

The trend for nightwear as dayweear sees no signs of slowing down, and we're certainly not complaining - anything that fuses comfort and style gets a big thumbs up from us. Give your pyjama shirt a Scandi twist by pairing with relaxed fit trousers and understated jewellery.

Kimonos

For a modern take on the kimono trend try tucking your kimono inspired shirt into a form fitting skirt - add some block heels for your new go-to outfit formula.

Shirt Dresses

The ultimate transeasonal piece, the shirt dress can be dressed up and down whatever the weather. Take your inspiration from The London Chatter and style a statement print shirt dress with metallic ankle boots and an on-trend bucket bag.

Ponchos

The Scandi's sartorial solution for cold autumn days, the humble poncho adds cool points to any outfit. Take your prompt from this show-goer and simply throw over khaki trousers and a fine knit, and then style with ankle boots and statement earrings - bicycle optional.

Floral Boots

Forget boring black ankle boots, for instant style kudos wear a colourful embroidered pair. They'll jazz up any simple outfit in a flash, or take the Scandi approach and style with a floral maxi.

Colour-blocking

Scandi style isn't all about minimalism and muted colours, they love top-to-toe colour too.

Elevated Sportswear

The tracksuit has been given a high fashion makeover thanks to rich colours and floral details. Pair with a crisp white shirt and trainers like this street style star.
