We all focus so much on Paris, New York, and Milan, that we often overlook the other Fashion Week events. Earlier this month, Copenhagen hosted its autumn/winter 2021, making it clear that the more established fashion capitals have some fierce competition. By moving Copenhagen Fashion Week online, it’s made it more accessible to the general public and raised awareness of some Scandi trends we want to add to our wardrobe ASAP. We’re rounding up 10 of our favourite trends from Copenhagen Fashion Week.
Green with Envy
One colour we saw everywhere at Copenhagen Fashion Week was green. When autumn hits, we think we’re going to be wearing green from head to toe. The full spectrum of hues, from pea-green to a darker Kermit the Frog green, are all back in vogue. You’ll want at least one shade of green to your closet.
Do you need a new coat for your autumn wardrobe? It’s got to be the puffer! Keep an eye out for vibrant shades, oversized sleeves, and cinched waists. Puffer jackets have been the transition from athleisure to classic outerwear.
Embrace your inner cowgirl with some fringe detailing. The 70s trend is back with a bang, with Copenhagen Fashion Week showing us bolder interpretations of the trend. Don’t shy away from fringe detailing – the bigger, the better!
Tonal dressing has been a trend for several seasons, but the Scandinavians have given it an earth tone twist. Instead of focusing on pastel shades and neutral hues, this Fashion Week focused on layering brown shades together to create depth and definition to any look.
With the popularity of Moncler, it’s no surprise that vinyl jackets are a Scandi trend. Find a style with some extra shine and a bold colour to add to your autumn/winter closet.
Mix and Matching Prints
Throw out the rule book. You no longer have to restrict yourself to wearing one print. This Scandi trend encourages you to mix and match different prints and to show off your personality. Do you love leopard and floral prints? Why not wear them both together?
This Scandi trend shouldn’t come as a surprise this far down our list. Brown jackets and coats are the staple piece for autumn 2021. Choose a timeless silhouette and you can keep it in your closet for years to come.
Maxi Dress with Long Sleeves
When we think of maxi dresses, it’s usually a spaghetti strap that we picture. This Scandi trend is making us rethink that by bringing long sleeves to this classic silhouette. We can’t wait to layer it with cardigans and gold chains come the autumn and winter. Thank to Copenhagen for making maxi dresses a year-round essential!
Wearing Dresses + Trousers
Before CFW, we never thought of wearing trousers under our dresses. It was a trend during the 90s and has been reincarnated by the Scandinavians, with a focus on streamline silhouettes and neutral tones to tie the look together.
Thanks to TikTok, we were already on the knitted vest bandwagon. Copenhagen Fashion Week put a twist on this piece by adding bold prints and slogans that will help you stand out from the ground. Just on this Scandi trend and embrace your inner Harry Styles.
