Style Spotted at CBS: Week 45 (1st year student edition)

November 4, 2015  //  By:   //  FASHION, Featured  //  No Comment

It certainly does not take a lot of people by surprise that we wear a hell of a lot of clothes in Denmark throughout most of the year as we adapt ourselves to the cold climate. Luckily, we Danes are good at taking full advantage of that! As the time of cold weather and colourful leaves begin falling upon us, our wardrobes have probably also begun to change as well. Autumn is a convenient season to show off our fashion – we are not walking around in our bare swimwear, but neither are we covering ourselves in big tent-like winter jackets that hide the majority of our outfit.

So, my single-lens reflex camera and I went for a walk around Solbjerg Plads to see what people in autumn were sporting.  However, outfits in autumn were not the only criteria though. I was on the hunt for autumnal fashion on new the faces at CBS.

Here’s some of what the  1st year bachelor and master students are wearing!

A brief description of the outfit:

An unbranded local navy-colored coat from Paris, black cropped pants with penny loafers from COS, Alexander McQueen hip totebag and black patent-leather shoes from Soulland.

How would you describe your style?

I have a broad choice of clothing-items. From sneakers, to loafers – coats to biker leatherjackets. Mainly, I combine the more raw and indiscreet with the classy and preppy, which completes my style. For example, mixing my classy maxi-coat with a pair of chill sneakers.

Where do you mainly buy your clothing from?

Mainly from the internet. The ranges and selections are much wider than the in-store shops. I don’t specifically buy my clothing from one or few stores, but choose the specific favorable item on the ranges and selections that I have.

What is your favorite must-wear/have item or accessory for this time of the year?

My must-have is my bracelet. I feel naked without it.

A brief description of the outfit:

A pair of 70′s inspired flair jeans from Dr. Denim paired with a basic white free from Selected. A sleeveless navy duster coat from River Island, an unknown grey wool coat, Stan Smith sneakers from Adidas and a black medium-sized shoulder clutch from Friis.

How would you describe your style?

A super feminine and classy style with an edge. I am definitely inspired by the minimalistic and sophisticated Scandinavian style where the small details make the biggest difference. The straight lines also attract me.

Where do you mainly buy your clothing from?

I love stores such as Company’s, where they carry one of my favorite brands Gestuz. Other than that I also do a lot of my shopping in & Other Stories and Samsøe Samsøe. If it has to be easy, then Asos.com is also a place I like to shop – they have a large variety of cool brands and here you can get the 10% student discount.

What is your favorite must-wear/have item or accessory for this time of the year?

Alexa Chung has designed a beautiful suede miniskirt. I love how the material can make almost any outfit stand out and if bought in neutral colors and straight lines it can last for a very long time.

A brief description of the outfit:

A black vintage stonewashed denim jacket bought in a Second hand store in Amsterdam contrasted with a stripy tee from Selected Homme and a pair of pastel shortened pants from Asos. A classy belt from Hugo Boss, pure white sneakers from Garment Project and an Ole Mathiesen leather watch in black.

How would you describe your style?

I would define it as being mainly preppy with hints of denim, but it really depends on what mood I’m in. I usually keep it pretty basic and focus on the accessories. Furthermore I tend to stay away from clothing with graphic print or crazy patterns, although I like to experiment with different colors and fabrics.

Where do you mainly buy your clothing from?

I’m a big online shopper, so sites like Luisaviaroma, Barneys and Antonioli I find the more unique pieces, whereas selected homme and Asos are my go-to for the basics like t-shirts and pants. A lot of my clothes are second hand. This really helps when I am shopping on a budget.

What is your favorite must-wear/have item or accessory for this time of the year?

Definitely a cashmere scarf in either a camel or beige colorway to go along the more subtle colors of this season.

A brief description of the outfit:

A flexible vertical-striped shirt from a vintage-store in Amsterdam, a pair of fresh-blue widely straight pair of pants from Monki, black chunky leather lace shoes with an unknown brand and a minimalistic triangle necklace from H&M.

How would you describe your style?

I really like vintage-clothing and hippie-oriented clothing. Sometimes it can get a bit more rocky and cheerful, but it differs depending on the time of the year, my mood and the items that I’m wearing.

Where do you mainly buy your clothing from?

Well, normally I like to buy my clothing from Vintage stores or second hand stores. I really like clothing that many other people don’t have. So I’m not very brand-oriented. The second hand stores are convenient with my student-budget. But I mainly go to the vintage stores since they have nicer things.

What is your favorite must-wear/have item or accessory for this time of the year?

Mmmmm…Really high-wasted pants. I really like that. It protects me from the cold that sometimes climb into my skin if my pants are too low or if my shirt is too short. Also a long coat that will keep my legs warm as well!

 

From my findings it is evident that a lot of people tend to change their style, just a little, when the season changes. From summer to autumn I have noticed that accessories become more and more prominent to add into peoples’ styles – both for the sake of convenience and aesthetics.

This was a piece of fresh autumn outfits on campus – next up  I’m off to find out what’s happening off campus!  Stay tuned to hear about my findings from The Copenhagen Fashion week AW15 featuring the newest autumn/winter fashion. I hope you’re excited ( I know I am!).
