stockholm, you look good

By Marlene | Published: 30. January 2013

Seeing Stockholm in late January, I’m asking myself what Stockholm looks like in June. I’m guessing almost unbearably good. Because even under grey skies, the city shines. After two days here, I’m also asking myself: Is it possible that even public toilets are designed so well that you want to move in immediately? Is everybody blonde? Should walking into any café feel like, as a friend said earlier, “you have just walked into a Calvin Klein commercial”? Did I really just pay 9 Euro for a sandwich? And is there anyone who doesn’t wear Acne?

Camilla and Sidsel are, almost completely. Coats, jeans, boots – nearly all Acne. This is what the city’s style looks like to me: unfussy but cool, the clothes are simple, but designed or put together in such a way that they don’t look boring. Perhaps it makes sense that a country that has such dire weather in the winter would, for example, produce a down jacket that looks this great.

Although I should mention that Camilla and Sidsel are actually Danish. I’ll report more about what Copenhagen looks like this time of year when I go tonight…

    Thanks so much for this streetstyle post! I’m visting Stockholm and Copenhagen in a few weeks so it’s great to know what the locals will be wearing in advance. Very stylish yet unfussy and practical.

      Aren’t they? The only problem with seeing that style for a week is: you kind of want to overhaul your entire wardrobe when you come home!

      Danke. Ich hoffe, den hattest Du auch.

      Ich finde, die Schwedinnen / Däninnen könnten uns ruhig mal ihre Tricks verraten, oder?
