What is Scandinavian Fashion?
Originally, Scandinavian fashion was synonymous with minimalism. Think neutral colour palettes, knitwear and tailored trousers. However, the style has slowly begun to change, encompassing a more fun and colourful vibe. Now, some of the most well-known 'Scandi-Girls' rock the perfect maximalism-inspired styles, balancing both masculine and feminine silhouettes to create a one-of-a-kind outfit.
