Style Spotted: Vibrant Colors During Winter

December 5, 2014  //  By:   //  FASHION, Featured  //  No Comment

Well all you lovely fashionistas, bust out your knits because it’s officially sweater weather! Summer has left the building and made room for rain and bitter gray skies. The time to pack up our colors is upon us – or so I had thought?!

I grabbed my iPhone and biked from Solberg Plads to our Flintholm campus to find a variety of bright and friendly people, who stood out in a sea of well-dressed monochromatic grayscale looks. For all of you out there who are the proud owners of  clothing racks looking like ‘50 shades of black’ during the fall-winter season (myself included), let us take a hint from these vibrant students and add some color to our, already getting darker by the day, landscape. The last look, however, is a perfect example of the black Scandinavian look, but done in an effortless stylish way!

Which trend do you wish you could stop seeing?
I would do anything on this planet to stop seeing see-through blouses, in all shapes and colors, spare me!

When do you feel the most confident?
When I’m wearing chains and lipstick – and wearing outfits that fits my mood.

If I gave you 2,000 dkk right now, what would you buy?
I would buy a dark green long leather skirt from Zara and match it with their leopard coat.

When out on a Saturday night, what style attracts your attention?
When a guy is swaggy, definitely ghetto-goth -all I’m saying is Kanye!

Best way to dress in the cold?
I’m from the north of Sweden; Denmark has got nothing on me. But right now I’m obsessed with Topshop’s long velvet padded coat.
