Until this year, I admired Copenhagen Fashion Week from afar by poring over runway photos and ogling street style outfits. Now that I'm back at the Danish capital's fashion week for the second time in 2019, I can confirm that it's even more fun and inspiring than it looks online. Yep, everyone really is thrilled to be here—not a soul is faking a smile for the 'gram. (Follow along on my Instagram for behind-the-scenes proof.)
As far as the street style in Copenhagen is concerned, anything goes—and I mean anything. Some people opt for designer bags, while others go for label-less vintage pieces. Some dress to the nines, while others put fresh spins on jeans and T-shirts. I'm far from the only person who thinks the trip to Copenhagen is worth it: There's a healthy mix of editors, influencers, buyers, and everyone in between, all hoping to that witness the tour de force that is Scandi fashion. And yes, they all look stylish en route to the shows. Scroll down to see the best Copenhagen Fashion Week street style photos from the S/S 20 shows, shot by Szymon Brzóska of The Style Stalker.
Shoe Straps Tied Over Pants
Oversize Suits With a Twist
Copenhagen showgoers were all about the not-so-basic suit. They favored extremely oversized silhouettes with interesting details like cutouts, paper bag waists, and buckled hems.
Chalk it up to cult brand Staud's newest launch, but moon-shaped bags were popular at this season's shows. Just add a colorfully-printed dress and you're good to go.
This season, everyone seems to be ditching their top-handle bags for oversize clutches—bonus points if it's the viral Bottega Veneta clutch, in particular.
Back to Basics
No fuss, no muss. Many showgoers this season opted for pared-back, minimalist outfits, usually centered on classic white tees or trousers.
Call it a jumpsuit, boilersuit, flight suit, or coverall—any way you slice it, it's a popular street style trend right now.
We can never say no to a good power suit, but Scandi girls are loving the abbreviated version of the trend—all the better to show off your new shoes.
Yes, the statement sleeve lives on. Fresh versions this season include sheer organza sleeves and colorful bell sleeves.
