I love the style in Copenhagen. Pernille Teisbaek and Linda Tol once told me about the difference between Danish and Swedish style—there’s something about the louder colours, playful combinations, bold prints and layering techniques that make the Danes look like they’d be at home on the coolest streets of Hackney Wick.

These ladies are quite enchanting in their unexpected blend of sporty and romantic: You’ll spot a street styler with acrylic pink hair clips, cowboy boots, a dress over jeans, a mad jacket and It bag all in one outfit, and it won’t look as half as bonkers as it does on paper. The women we like to follow on Instagram (all below, for your double-tap ease), are experts with colour and accessories in particular: Barrettes are booming, and power pastels are filling up the pavements.

Keep reading to see what Copenhagen’s coolest are wearing for spring, because the fact is that everyone will want to adopt the looks, items and trends in a few months’ time.

Style Notes: Anne knows just how to capture our attention: by wearing head-to-toe lilac and doing an interesting Instagram pose. Scandi girls aren’t shying away from these saccharine hues, opting instead to wear them boldly on top of each other.

Style Notes: Chanel bag preferences vary the world over, but we’ve noticed a particular trend for elaborate, cutesy versions in Denmark recently. Emili‘s outfit has a lot to be inspired by, but just take a peek at that gorgeous bouclé bag.
