Following on from the inspirational moves made at Copenhagen Fashion Week, now it's Stockholm's turn to be in the spotlight. If you don't know the major difference between these two Scandi style tribes, we asked some experts to decode it so you can be forever in the know, but if you're simply looking for great autumnal wardrobe inspiration (it is September after all), then you're in luck. The weather wasn't favourable during the show period in Sweden, but this did allow the city's fashion experts to be entirely #sorrynotsorry and get all ahead of themselves by diving well into the A/W season. Puffa coats—why not? Layer upon layer of knitwear? Bring. It. On.
There were less extreme steps into the new as well—a shift in colour palettes was noticeable, as was the arrival of many must-jot-them-down jackets. If you like your shopping to come with a side serving of häftigt (that's awesome in Swedish), then scroll through the gallery of our favourite Stockholm Fashion Week street style looks.
