The fashion world’s eyes were on Copenhagen Fashion Week 2019 this season, as Stockholm’s Fashion Week was put on hold by the Sweden Fashion Council to give them time to find a more sustainable alternative – their Danish counterparts took up the mantel with Scandi cool style – filling the city with editors, influencers and those seeking out the latest Scandinavian brands.
As always, the coveted looks weren’t reserved just for the catwalk, but for the front row editors and street style influencers too – here are a few of our favourite trends and how to wear them this autumn…
Olive is a key colour in the AW19 palette – a great flattering neutral that complements most skin tones. Seen in leather, faux fur, checks and in beauty, too. It’s a great wearable trend to try this season. Our chiffon layered dress from Ichi is perfect with bare legs and trainers now, or tights and boots as the weather cools (biker and cowboys are a big trend this winter). Or if you’re after a more relaxed look, our long-sleeve bestselling tees from Chalk have had an autumn update, with this new olive ‘smile’ t-shirt just landing.
Statement print shirts were a common theme on the cobbled streets of Copenhagen – add drama to your top half with these eye-catching prints from Vilagallo. Great paired with leather trousers (another big AW19 trend) or denim for a smarter weekend look.
Cerulean blues, yolk yellows and ultra violets were brightening up the streets of Copenhagen; teamed with crisp whites for a modern look.
Snakeskin, leopard, zebra, croc… animal print isn’t going anywhere in 2019 – although this autumn it’s about pairing your print with earthy organic tones – think terracotta and khaki – for a new twist.
Check are *the* pattern for AW19 – in blazers, trousers and dresses… from ‘grown up grunge’ tartan, like Vilagallo’s Amber blazer – a statement piece that will immediately update your wardrobe. Or for a more subtle nod, use accessories like this checked scarf from Pom Amsterdam.
