17 Easy Street Style Looks I Really Loved From Copenhagen Fashion Week

Copenhagen Fashion Week has just concluded for another season, but its impact is already shaping the style agenda for 2023. Of course, the New York, London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks are just around the corner, but there’s something about the Copenhagen scene that just keeps getting better and better. Not only were the runway collections a sight to behold, but the street style proved to be just as impressive. And that’s precisely what we’re going to analyse today.

While I always look forward to seeing what creative directors have dreamed up for the season ahead, it’s the outfits worn by the show’s attendees that provide me with inspiration straight off the bat. Though some can be out there and, admittedly, are a joy to live vicariously through, the looks I like to highlight most are the ones with a certain ease in their wearability, outfits I could copy and paste into my wardrobe without too much effort and, most importantly, will work with the majority of items I already own. After looking through hundreds upon hundreds of street style images shot during Copenhagen Fashion Week, a few key pieces began to emerge.

Although it might sound obvious since the topic of this discussion is a Scandinavian city in the winter months, outerwear was a major focus. Ticking off all the biggest coat and jacket trends of 2023, I saw everything from cropped shearling to maxi woollen weaves. Trousers took on a leading role, too, specifically those of the tailored variety. (Though, leather and cargo completed the ensemble in supporting roles.) There was also a pretty significant number of cowboy boots on display, which seems noteworthy in its own right.

For these observations and so much more, keep scrolling for the easy-to-wear street style looks I loved at Copenhagen Fashion Week. Plus, shop the key pieces you’ll need to re-create each outfit for yourself should you not already own anything similar.
