How Scandinavian fashionistas dress in winter
Вy Scandinavia we will mean three countries at once: Norway, Sweden and Denmark. They have a similar climate and a similar cultural heritage, and therefore they dress in a similar way. At the moment, there is a split in the fashion trends of Scandinavia: minimalism and eclecticism.
Scandinavians prefer layering in their style. The reason for which is primarily a cold and humid climate.
Eclectic style implies a large number of prints. For example Scandinavians can elegantly combine floral prints, peas and stripes in one outfit. And to all this they add accessories. Girls love bright clothes. They wear it both in the summer and in the winter.
The common love of all Scandinavians is jackets. They wear them in a large numbers: fitted, with broad shoulders, long, short, printed and monochrome.
A distinctive feature of eclectic style scandinavians is earrings. Often, girls wear one large earring, exposing it for all to see, and their second ear is covered with hair.
For Scandinavians, comfort and warmth are more important. Minimalist fashionistas love sweaters, often natural, more expensive, to really warm, oversize.
Because of the cold, girls dress as warmly as possible, and this is multi-layered. So, they are likely to wear a jacket, coat, necessarily socks, sneakers, jeans, a hat with a scarf and mittens to the shirt.
Another factor influencing what the Scandinavians wear is the availability of paved roads. That is, you don’t really go out in heels here, which means you need comfortable shoes. Unless in extreme cases they wrap their high heels.
By the way, it was in Scandinavia that a fashion was born to combine sneakers with casual clothes and a dress.
