There’s something really special about Danish street style; and Copenhagen Fashion Week from 10th-12th drew in a covetable style set.
I was flicking through Vogue today and had to share some of these street style images from their bi-annual event which showcased everything from the classic 90s tracksuit, to some seriously cool animal prints.
There’s no doubt that as the temperatures drop, layering up will be essential, but there was nothing more effortless than the blending of colours and textures on the streets of Copenhagen. Dusky pink palettes will rule this autumn- when it comes to those milder days, try sleeveless jackets and re-work your summer maxi, adding trainers and subtle accessories for a fresh feel.
Gone are the days when tracksuits were sniffed at; the shell suit is back, and if CFW is anything to go by, it’s time to match up. The contrast stripe is highly desirable this season, and why not accessorise with tinted glasses for the ultimate retro feel?
Accessories can be everything when it comes to completing a look, and this street style proves it serves well to pick a palette that works. Play matchy matchy with your finishing touches or go wild with clashing shades.
Leopard print is pretty much everywhere this season, but it serves not to overdo it. A coat or a pair of heels teamed with a minimalist look works best when it comes to the fall. If you insist on colour, try striking mustard shades or dark navy touches.
Thrown on, relaxed looks might look easy, but they’re more difficult than you think when it comes to the new season. Copenhagen was filled with eclectic pairings, and this one below is the perfect example of a playful ensemble. Take autumn’s must-have fabrics and colours (velvet, metallics and rich browns) and make sure they don’t outdo each other, it’s all about coherence.
That 70s Show
Will 70s style ever fall out of favour? The answer is probably not, if these looks are anything to go by. Billowing fabrics, dropped hems and wispy waves all cater to that carefree, retro vibe.
Whoever said sporting details were reserved for gym-goers, was most definitely wrong. Tennis chic is the new IT look, with zip-up tops and pleated mini skirts taking centre stage. Game, set, style win.
