What do you get when you mix the style of the Olsen twins with the '70s and a touch of sass? Pernille Teisbaek, that's who. The Scandinavian stylist and street style favourite has been on our radars for what feels like forever thanks to her incredible knack for nailing looks that everyone wants to wear. We on the Who What Wear team regularly discuss her wardrobe and for good reason—she simply knows what's chic and is always seasons ahead of others in the trend stakes. She's also not afraid to change. Previously, she opted for denim separates and more colourful dresses, but right, now she's all about minimalism.
Today, her wardrobe is full of simple and elegant pieces by The Row, Bottega Veneta and that other brand of the moment, Khaite. True, all of these brands fall at the top end of expensive, but she's also known for wearing H&M and Mango. While she's clearly a fan of a more muted palette, she isn't immune to the draw of a sequin shirt or a checked blazer either. None of her outfit formulas are new, but it's the small details such as the addition of a pair of '70s-inspired sunglasses, a gold chain, or even simply tucking a jumper into her jeans that make all the difference. Keep scrolling to see our favourite Pernille looks right now, and shop the pieces below.
