Quite honestly, the street style seen during Copenhagen Fashion Week always strikes a chord with me. Perhaps I am destined to live the minimalist Scandi lifestyle… But I’m more inclined to believe that Scandinavian fashion has a certain flair for creatives. From the innovative silhouettes to the sheer authenticity of certain ensembles. Copenhagen Fashion Week is an anticipated period of fashion’s annual calendar.

Square-toed shoes and an extravagant floral dress - name a more iconic duo. Of course, when someone as stylish as Tine is repping this combo, it’d be hard not to emanate fashion icon vibes. Lover of vintage and winner of prints, Tine Andrea is the fashion blogger whose style is ‘trademark Tine’. Every single one of Tine’s ensembles looks considered and confident.

Embrace sheer pieces with open arms this season. It’s the fabric of romance. Elegant, considered, and daring, sheer ensembles convey confidence and poise. Reese Blutstein’s CFW street style is among my favourites thus far. The way she styles this Cecilie Bahnsen smock with her hair slicked back emanates sophistication. Reese offsets this ethereal dress with chunky black boots and a padded Maison Margiela handbag, forming a look that’s truly her own. Spark conversation with an original fashion statement like Reese.
Student, influencer and entrepreneur Anne Charlotte Vogel knows how to channel Scandinavian minimalism. Sometimes, the simplest looks are the most powerful. Her street style outfit combines texture and detail to demonstrate an innate fashion maturity. From the sexy leather look shirt (featuring a killer collar that radiates Al Pacino Scarface vibes) to the statement hoop earring. Everything about this look is on-point.
Two words: those shoes. (Two more words: old Céline). If you’re not already following stylist and creative consultant Trine Kjær, you are missing out on next-level fashion inspiration. True style is all about those authentic accents. In Trine’s case, this could take the form of a swipe of electric blue eyeliner, or pasta-inspired jewellery. It’s hard to pull off the dressed-up-dessed-down look, but Trine wears this simple and elegant dress with ease. We’ve seen chain necklaces all over the streets of Copenhagen this fashion week. Take a leaf out of this creative’s style files with a chain necklace that will be your autumn go-to.
Creative director Maria Bernad has taken Copenhagen by storm with her eclectic and original outfits. From ethereal tea dresses to XXL blazers, is there any look Maria can’t make her own? This ensemble is my favourite from Maria’s Copenhagen style oeuvre thus far. From the sheer blush shirt to the plush pearl accents, Maria creates texture torsion magic with a restrained pallet of stone and nude. Follow Maria Bernad for outlandish looks one can’t help but adore.
To end my list (in impeccable style) is Jen Wonders. This creative director has an incredible wardrobe of vintage pieces, so if you’re a 70s fanatic, you have to follow Jen. In fact, Jen’s double denim fashion week look is reason enough to delve into her wonderful world. Simple and chic, for me, double denim always hits the mark. Use your favourite pair of statement earrings to adorn your double denim look and hit the streets in style like Jen.
