In the past few days, I've had the strong urge to pack away all of my summer clothes and jump head first into autumn. The weather feels like it's turning, and with the beginning of September comes that "back to school" desire for tights, knits, boots and great outerwear. Although we're still a few weeks away from the main four fashion capitals providing us with street style fodder, Stockholm's runway shows are on right now, and the Scandi set are out in full force.
As always, their quirky take on trends is a welcome addition to our saved folders. The editors, stylists, influencers and buyers in this chic city are aware of what's new and now, but they'll always adopt trends with a unique, less slavish twist, leaning into oversized silhouettes, casual accessories to make fancy clothes feel more laid-back and unusual fabrics and prints that feel out of the ordinary. There are the bold types (Kermit-green leather trouser suit, we see you!) and the minimalists (all beige, all good), so there's a little bit of everything to steal from the Stockholm fashion crowd, no matter your personal tastes. From the most subtle styling updates (note the sunglasses-over-hair tweak that's reminiscent of Gloria Steinem) to all-out statement-making pieces (hot-pink crochet dress and shearling boa, anyone?), I'm utterly obsessed with the below Stockholm street style looks.
Style Notes: A swooshy dress with chunky boots is such a Stockholm combo.
