Style Lessons From Copenhagen

By Jacob Corner, Junior Digital Editor | Aug 2016

What with all the fancy furniture, it’s easy to assume Northern European street style is going to be on the same lines: well-designed but a bit too restrained. After a quick trip to Denmark, we learned just how wrong we were. One of Europe’s more fashion forward cities, we came back with a bunch of pointers to give your style an upgrade just in time for the new season.

 

 

 

Cap It All Off

Caps have made the leap from purely off-duty to something more versatile. Choose a cap in a unique material and try setting it against a restrained look. The key to keeping this presentable rather than out of place is in the colour – either go all out with the contrast or opt for something subtly tonal, there’s no middle ground.

Wear All White Right

 

 

Wear All White Right

The sequel to all-black-everything, wearing white on white is a cleaner, lighter version of being ‘murdered up’. Just be careful when near any food, anybody holding a drink, anyone smoking, when you’re sitting down… look, just be careful, alright?

Regulate your Skate

Skater style is not an easy look to pull off – coming from a culture dominated by authenticity, just picking up the clothes and standing next to a skateboard you can’t ride is going to make you look like a poseur. Instead, take a few choice items like printed longsleeve tees and work them into your existing wardrobe.

A Hi/Low How To

 

A Hi/Low How To

Analogous to the sports and smarts combo, Hi/Low is about putting classic tailored pieces with typically chilled designs e.g. suit trousers with tees, shirts with joggers. Well-chosen accessories round out the look, pulling it towards being either smarter or relaxed. Just don’t take it too far – no one wants to see you wearing a waistcoat over a onesie or heelies with your Saville row suit.

Rethink Pink

Summer’s key colour is still in effect. Make it work in this transitional period by slipping it into looks as a flash of colour rather than the dominant tone – baseball caps, longline tees under sweatshirts and socks are all a good bet.

Jump on the Band Wagon

Not the tees you’ll find on offer in a provincial head shop, the evolution of the printed tee has dropped a host of bands and brands into your wardrobe, and the more obscure the better. Popularised by Paris-based design collective Vetements, the look is easy enough to wear: pair the tee with simple separates to keep the design front and centre.

Make Malmö Yours

We showed it to you in a shoot, now see it in the wild. This photographer nails the loose, relaxed shapes and faded palette of the Malmö trend but makes it his own with the addition of some well-chosen accessories: chunky rock & roll jewellery, tats and tortoiseshell sunglasses.
