You’ve heard us wax poetic about stylish French and Italian women on many occasions, but they’re far from the only well-dressed women in Europe. I recently traveled to Copenhagen and was in awe of the effortlessly stylish ladies of all ages everywhere I looked. I love wearing local brands whenever I travel—I also wore Colombian brands head-to-toe in Cartagena—so I challenged myself to give Scandi style a try for my trip.
I immediately knew I had to pack my two favorite Danish brands: Stine Goya and Ganni. Specifically, a colorful striped sweater from the former and a checked blazer from the latter. Both brands are masters of fun patterns in their own unique ways, so I thought they’d be the perfect transition into Scandi style, which has been moving away from the minimal, monochrome vibe you may associate with the region (thanks, Ikea).
