Copenhagen Fashion Week: The Street Style Trends

1. The Statement Coat

The last thing the Fashion Week set want to do is cover up a good outfit with a drab coat, and many of them have managed to work around it this season by opting for coats that do all the talking for them. We’re talking floor-length coat, exaggerated puffers, bold block colours, patchwork and even a little faux fur à la the mob wife aesthetic.

2. Triangle Scarves

Fashion doesn’t always call for an umbrella – and on days when the weather is wet and windy, as it is in Copenhagen this week, the fashion pack has to get creative. Enter: the triangle scarf. Showgoers were spotted amongst the masses wrapping their scarves over their hair to protect the strands underneath, and the resulting look was giving grandmacore (your grandma, if she had a side hustle as a runway model).

3. Statement Knits

As for other ways to stay protected from the elements, think closer to home – aka, a good knit. But, take note, these are grown up knits, complete with saucy slogans, luxury logos and cashmere finishes.

4. Print Stacking

Goodbye quiet luxury, hello loud maximalism. Copenhagen Fashion Week street style dictated that, even when the skies are grey, bold prints and patterns are in – especially when stacked together in clashing contrast.

5. Bows On Bows

And, of course, one of 2024’s greatest trends had to make an appearance somewhere. The coquettish, girly bow made an appearance on multiple showgoers – mostly tucked into hair, stacked together. We especially love the idea of matching your bows to the colour palette of your outfit.
