It's not often that I become singularly obsessed with one person's style, but this year, one woman's outfit choices have captured my imagination like no other. She is a Scandi girl—and not only that. She's a vintage-dealing Scandi girl. The dream.
Pernille Rosenkilde carries off the vintage-meets-contemporary-trends look like no other influencer I've seen on Instagram. As a commercial director of a magazine and a vintage dealer, she is perfectly positioned to merge the two worlds, which is something I am constantly aspiring to do with my own wardrobe. The result is a beautifully eclectic style that packs personality without feeling contrived and effortlessly blends high—think feather-trimmed jackets—with low—think denim dungarees and dad trainers.
In a landscape of identikit style, Pernille stands out with her originality and evident creativity—something which, I believe, is easier to achieve when you shop vintage. So this spring, I'm hoping to be more Pernille, and I think you should too. I've scrolled through her feed and rounded up the outfits that I've particularly fallen for over the last few months to show you how to re-create the looks using both new and second-hand pieces. Scroll down to see and shop her outfits.
Style Notes: A statement feather-trimmed jacket is surely the easiest way to elevate your basics. Case in point: Pernille's fab vintage jacket adds personality to a pair of tailored trousers and a white tee.
