How to Achieve Scandinavian Style

By: Camille Ulam

If you don’t know already, Scandinavia has been trending in both the fashion and design world. The minimalist take on fashion and design makes their style enviable. Danish brands, Ganni and Saks Potts, are putting Copenhagen on the map with their growing cult following including Leandre Medine and Emily Weiss. With Copenhagen fashion week in full swing, it is time to start paying attention to the Danes.

Ever wonder how to dress comfortable and still look cool? Take a note from the Scandinavians who manage to pull off a zero-effort look in the best type of way. Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish girls alike achieve this ultimate laid back yet chic look without trying too hard. Scandi girls are often spotted in a show-stopping coat paired with chic pants, a major bumbag draped across the body and sneakers that are cooler than your boyfriend’s. In order to achieve this look, here are the items every Danish girl has in her closet:
