Street Style Favourites From Copenhagen Fashion Week A/W 18

This past week was Copenhagen Fashion Week for A/W 2018 and not surprisingly all of my favourite Scandinavian fashion girls came out in true form.  There was a lot of plaid, wide leg pants and bright colours effortlessly tempered with florals, denim, fur and leather for looks as swoon worthy as Copenhagen itself.  Here are a few of my favourite street style looks from Copenhagen this past week:

‘Tis The Season To Sparkle and Shine

Aside from the fantastic food, one of my favourite things about the holiday season is the fabulous fashion.  Beautiful reds, glittering golds and shimmering sparkle suddenly become acceptable everyday attire during the festive season and I love it! While holiday dressing is not for the faint of heart, it is the perfect opportunity to have some fashionable fun and add something bold and fresh to your wardrobe.  Here is some festive fashion inspiration if you are still searching for the perfect holiday look:

Trendspotting – Fall Florals

Floral patterned clothing is normally reserved for spring.  They add a freshness and a softness to the wearer’s outfit marking the change of seasons after a cold hard winter.  My personal style tends to be a little bit more simple and edgy so florals rarely make an appearance in my wardrobe – the one exception is if I find a darker floral pattern that I can integrate into my wardrobe.  Thankfully this fall darker florals are trending in a big way.  From jackets and dresses to blouses and bombers, fall florals are everywhere this season.  The darker, more muted colours blend seamlessly with other fall trends such as red clothing and accessories , velvet and gorgeous suiting 

Fall florals can work for most people’s styles – the key is to pair it with things that you already own and love.  I love to toughen up the look by pairing it with darker denim, leather jackets or leggings and booties.  Here are some of my favourite fall floral looks this season.

Trendspotting – Velvet Crush

Love it or hate it, velvet has the power instantly elevate an outfit.  Because it has such a distinctive look, velvet tends to either be trending or just completely outdated – there is no in between.  I love that velvet is currently trending this fall, but that unlike previous seasons when velvet was popular, this season’s looks are edgier, cooler and a lot more streamlined.  Many designers sent velvet looks down the runway for Fall 2017 but my favourite by far were the gorgeous pant suits from Tibi and Altuzarra – love it! Here are some of my favourite looks featuring the velvet trend:

Trendspotting – Well Suited

Although my personal style is quite casual, I have always loved a good pants suit.  Maybe it’s because my mum is very particular about dressing professionally and wore a blazer to work almost every single day, but there is something about a great suit that gets me every time.  I was understandably thrilled when pants suits began trending again.  For a while there, ill fitting, dull coloured suits were the only options that most women had unless they were willing to spend an exorbitant amount of money, but now the tide has thankfully changed.

Skinny pants, oversized blazers, cropped pants, fitted jacket – they are all trending and they look fabulous!  Different fabrications and patterns help the wearer express their own individuality without having to say a word.  Paired with sneakers, block heels, t-shirts or chunky knits – the options are limitless and pants suits are now a great way to showcase your style and personality in a unique and chic way.  Thankfully this trend will be continuing into Spring 2018 and I cannot wait to see fresh takes on this classic trend!  Here are some of my favourite looks featuring the fabulous pants suit:
