There's no denying that the buzz around Copenhagen Fashion Week has reached fever pitch. Having quietly grown in confidence in recent years, for the past couple of seasons, we've found ourselves becoming just as excited to see how it will all unfold as we are for the other four fashion week cities (if not more so).
This is due in no small part to the street style scene. Of course, we love nothing more than to see what Scandi designers have in store for us in the next few months, but the attendee outfit-spotting has to be our favourite CFW pastime. Cue a plethora of pretty dresses, sleek tailoring and amazing accessories. However, what really caught our attention was the shoes.
With the power to make or break an outfit, your shoe choices should never be made in haste—a sentiment that's clearly shared by our Scandinavian friends. From the boot trend we can't wait to try for ourselves to the heel resurrected from Carrie Bradshaw's wardrobe archives, keep scrolling to see and shop the top Scandi shoe trends we spotted at Copenhagen Fashion Week.
1. WHITE COWBOY BOOTS
The Style Stalker
We like it when trends get specific, and that's certainly the case when it comes to this boot trend. Western footwear is proving to be just as popular for 2019 as it was last winter. Now, though, Scandi girls are snapping cowboy boots up in fresh white hues.
That's right—mules are still very much a thing in Scandinavia. While we spotted plenty of black and white pairs, they were easily outweighed by brighter styles. Think neon hues or bold primary colours.
With the ability to balance genuine comfort with an effortlessly cool aesthetic, Scandi girls are still deeming dad trainers appropriate for the season ahead. Sidenote: There were lots of yellow pairs going around.
As far as shoe trends go, this one is probably the most divisive, but we've never seen Perspex shoes look so chic as we have over the last few days. Wear them with a refined colour palette to ensure they look as expensive as possible.
Carrie Bradshaw isn't the only stylish lady to have fallen head over heels for the iconic Hangisi. So many show attendees cracked out their best Manolos for the occasion, with the mule interpretation proving to be the most sought-after.
No longer relegated to the California coast, flip-flops are now commonplace on the feet of stylish Scandi women. Offering an offbeat alternative to other casual footwear, we saw them worn with everything from ruffled minidresses to tailoring.
