Those in the know, know: With cool girl labels like Ganni and Rotate included in the calendar, Copenhagen Fashion Week already are low-key rewrites for the seasons — and spring 2023 is no exception. That’s why we’ve rounded up the runway trends that are inspiring Scandis to dress up with ease — and make them purchasable, for instant gratification. instantly. From ’90s-inspired designer pants and cowboy boots to exposed nipples, there’s something for everyone here, even if you’re inclined to go wrong. erroneously relevant or somewhat scandalous. Check out the seven trends we’re tracking below.
Remember those baggy pieces that you may or may not have rocked in the ’90s and/or early years? Well, it’s time to dig them out of your wardrobe because, according to Gestuz and Samsøe Samsøe, the utilitarian pants are back — and this time, the more pockets the better. Comfort aside, what we love most about this trend is versatility: combine yours with the apartment for a casual daytime look or heels for a night out — dare we say that dance to R&B icons of the era like Aaliyah and TLC.
Socks and sandals
Separable, for sure, but the socks and sandals combinations continue to reinvent themselves from fashion fakes to catwalk must-haves. Team it up with a pair of sneakers and smart loafers by Baum und Pferdblank, or be sophisticated (and office-appropriate) with a sheer sock of the same color, as the models did at Lovechild 1979.
Going back to the office can be daunting, and that’s without even considering a wardrobe change. Thankfully, the event easily seen at Mark Kenly Domino Tan, Remain and Helmstedt provides a middle ground between comfort and matching. Choose vibrant but neutral colors, such as dark blue or peach, and let the compliments fly during the morning meeting.
On unusually hot days, hand-woven tops with woven loops can be the best way to allow air flow. Remain and The Garment are two collections that feature crochet at the top, and sometimes even at the bottom. Think of this as a more elaborate festive style.
Add something extra, and a touch of romance, with a floral brooch, on display here at Saks Potts. There are many options for how to wear, from the neck and wrists to the strap decoration of your outing jacket. The choice is yours.
The nipple is exposed
Show a little, or a lot. Concept knitwear brand A. Roege Hove has garnered many fans for nipple release like you’ve never seen before. These NSFW dresses, cardigans, and shirts offer the best teen fit, so you can decide what look you want.
We argue that no guest has left Ganni’s spring/summer 2023 show without actually craving a pair of cowboy boots. Everyone’s favorite Scandi brand brings Western vibes to CPHFW with a modern take on a classic with cherry red, navy blue and two-tone color schemes. Yeeaw, really.
