Understated, self-assured, practical: this is off-duty dressing Scandi style.
These girls, captured by ELLE’s street style photographer at Copenhagen Fashion Week, prove that it’s all about investing in key pieces: a statement coat, a great pair of leather boots – and a flash of unexpected detailing to make those dependable wardrobe basics sing.
A restrained colour palette keeps the look smart and pulled together, while pattern makes an occasional appearance –no florals, please – in the shape of androgynous checks or modern digital prints. Beauty is lo-fi: think soft up-dos or a top knot ‘to go’, worn with vampy, plum lips.
