Colourful Prints

Traditionally, Scandi style has been pretty minimalist in both colour scheme and design, however we’ve seen a real evolution in the past few years with bold prints and colours becoming a staple for Scandi dressing. 

Mix Feminine with Masculine

Another top tip for truly nailing Scandi style is to embrace masculine and feminine dressing in your outfits. Dress down rather than dressing up for the occasion and team floaty floral dresses with a pair of sneakers, a hoodie or oversized structured blazer.

Be Comfortable

In an interview with Vogue, Jeanette Madsen advised us to all think of the four C’s when trying to emulate her style. Comfort, casual, classic and cool – and we couldn’t agree more. Ditch the skin tight jeans and high heels and opt for something that you’re going to feel comfortable and fabulous in from morning till night.
