When I think Scandinavian style I instantly think simple, neutral, but also intricate.
When I was in Stockholm recently, I was in awe with how the women would dress. There was a touch of elegance to every single outfit I saw. You may think it was simple upon first looking, but the outfit was made within the details. Black and white may seem boring to some, but with the right detailing, black and white are the best colours to work with.
Here is my guide on how to dress like a Scandinavian:
1. Pick a neutral colour palate
Black and white can make a powerful statement when styled the right way
2. Pick either gold or silver jewellery
And only pick one or two pieces to feature. A watch and either earrings or a necklace will do
3. “Less is more”
Don’t over-complicate your outfit with too many items
4. Layer, layer, layer
Layer your outfit to create detail
