4 Spring Street Style Trends Coming Out of Copenhagen This Week

Copenhagen cool girls, assemble! It's that time of year again when the Scandi set descends on the capital of Denmark to bring us some much-needed fashion cheer in the depths of winter. This catwalk schedule gets the benefit of preceding the fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan, and Paris and thereby offers an enticing first glimpse at what's to come for spring. Plus, the mix of brilliant designers (both up-and-coming like Helmstedt and cult-status like Ganni) and impossibly stylish attendees make it an event to circle on your calendar in thick red pen every season. So when Copenhagen Fashion Week invited me to see the action up close, I jumped at the chance and you can follow what I see both on and off the runway via my Instagram account here.

These are the women who defy all seasonal norms or expectations: Pea-green coats? Sure. Pink dresses to cycle in? Ja, please. How about pastel trouser suits? Mad sportswear? Crazy tights? All very acceptable on the streets of #CPHFW and more than acceptable for us all when it's all too easy to slide into that black overcoat yet again…

So, without further ado, here are the coolest looks and burgeoning spring trends to come out of Copenhagen Fashion Week so far.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
