Copenhagen might not be one of the fashion weeks on the traditional fashion calendar, but it has certainly built a reputation for its innovative and agenda-setting approach to design. So many buzzy labels, fresh styling ideas and sustainability initiatives emerge from this city each season. The street style is almost as inspiring as the looks we see on the runways, as guests aren’t afraid to have fun with their outfits over in Copenhagen.

This crowd has sparked lots of the styling trends we have seen dominate over the past few years, such as oversized, colourful midi dresses paired with chunky boots and a love of vibrant prints. This fashion week is all about having fun and experimenting with personal style, which often translates into a whole lot of colour. So we always keep a very close eye on the street style looks, and after so many cancelled fashion weeks, boy, were these outfits fun to look through. After clicking through hundreds of outfits, we saw 10 trends or styling tweaks, in particular, that we spotted again and again.

1. White Shirts

Sometimes you can’t beat a classic white shirt, and we love how it looks worn open over a white silk slip dress.
