The Sweater Style Danish It Girls Love

For a tiny country, Denmark has cornered the international market on coolness. Celebrity chef René Redzepi put hyperlocal cuisine and foraged foods on the menu. Nordic noir shows like The Killing and The Bridge spawned streaming binge sessions around the globe. “Hygge” had us all swaddled in wooly blankets in front of fires seeking the Dane’s national brand of coziness.

Then there are the Danish It girls, like Pernille Teisbaek and Emili Sindlev, who epitomize Scandi style. Truly, Copenhagen may just be our favorite city for the mellow yet sophisticated looks on its streets. One tip we picked up from these Northern beauties in the hip district of Nørrebro: Scandinavian-inspired sweaters are the next heritage piece primed for mass appeal. Their folksy patterns, colorful yarns and snug warmth make them so inviting.

Here are a few of our favorite cheery knits to shop now. Pair them with pants or skirts for a fresh fall look. And feel free to mix prints with your knits: it’s how the Danes do it.

When the fall collections start to drop, we feel like a kid in a sugar shack. A kid who has no intention of stopping until our bellies ache and our pockets are full. Some of the sweetest treats each season are the new handbags. The textures, colors and styles are always so delicious. And this season is no exception. From cotton-candy-colored totes to licorice satchels and caramel suede minibags, there’s a purse for every palate.

We’ve rounded up an assorted pack of the best arm candy for fall. Here’s a look at our yummy stash.

Welcome to Fashion Bytes, a cheat sheet for your favorite runway designers. From style inspirations to behind-the-scenes scoops, here’s everything worth knowing at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2018.

The brand: Chanel

The history: Iconoclast Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s now-iconic tweed suits and little black dresses were a revolution in the 1920s.

She remains the most internationally identifiable name in high fashion.

Welcome to Fashion Bytes, a cheat sheet for your favorite runway designers. From style inspirations to behind-the-scenes scoops, here’s everything worth knowing at Milan Fashion Week Spring 2018.

The brand: Gucci

The history: The label was founded by the unbelievably alliterative Guccio Gucci in 1921.
