Copenhagen is renowned for its vivid hues, playful and original interpretations of runway trends, and unashamed self-assurance. This season was no different, particularly in terms of street style. From the catwalk to the streets, experimenting with patterns, combining clashing hues, and adopting classic stylings were all the rage, and they served as the inspiration for a myriad of trends for the forthcoming season. Take our lead as we demonstrate the hottest trends we observed during Copenhagen AW22 Fashion Week.
1. 70’s Floral Prints
This season, nostalgia was big both on and off the runway, with a focus on the 1970s-era floral print as its source of inspiration. It looks great to add an accent to a monochromatic or patterned garment, and you can switch up different sizes for added intricacy. A faux fur jacket or trench coat will give the ensemble a contemporary edge. As an alternative, you may also include additional era-specific components, such a pair of flared pants or a miniskirt. Wear patterned pants, a maxi dress, or a shirt; combining different hues will quickly make your ensemble look better.
2. 80’s Vibe
The 1980s had a huge impact on fashion choices for decades, from oversized jackets to shell suits and high-waisted swimwear. Business casual clothes has been popular for several seasons, but you can give it a ’80s twist by wearing roll necks with blazers and straight-legged pants. For a more authentic style, add a string of pearls and a few brooches. The ultimate ode to the decade is to wear your beloved white shoes with a baggy pair of pants and a brightly colored sweater while doing errands.
3. Boho Grunge
Boho grunge, a blend of hippie inspirations from the 1960s and 1970s with the relaxed and rebellious spirit of the ’90s grunge movement, is another fad that comes and goes. Try mixing artistic patterns—paisley, crochet, and florals—with skater-girl accessories, including torn denim, khaki, leather jackets, and clunky combat boots, to pull off this edgy ensemble. The key to nailing the look is layering; mix and match different components to your taste and add accessories like elaborately embroidered scarves, vibrant eyeglasses, or a crocheted cardigan.
4. Crochet Crop Tops
For a few seasons, designers like Fendi, Bottega Veneta, and Dior have included crocheted garments on the catwalk, and now we are seeing it on the streets of Copenhagen. The knitted clothing can be worn all year round and is not just a summer item. It’s all about stacking it with various styles this season to create a mega-blend of genres. For a creative spin on the standard business dress, pair an oversized jacket and pants with a crochet bralette. With other components of the costume, such your stockings or jacket, you can emphasize important hues. In contrast, a straightforward pair of jeans would go well with the adorable crop top. Wear them with sandals for a light summer look or with boots for cooler weather.
5. Faux Fur Hats
Wear a faux fur hat and live your life as if it’s 1995, channeling your inner Cher or Dionne. When worn with a winter attire, this adorably chic and trendy alternative to the classic headpiece will keep you warm and make you seem chic. From a beret to a bucket hat, there are various ways to sport this trend while maintaining your sense of style. For a more understated look, a classic silhouette looks well with fitted separates, a rollneck, or a maxi coat. Try wearing monotone clothing in a vibrant color, such as neon pink, or a combination of tones if you want to look a little more avant-garde. On top of your head, add a headpiece in the same hue or emphasize a design element from the outfit.

6. Fluffy Shoes
Get your feet warm and toasty with a pair of fluffy shoes as the temperature begins to fall and you feel the chill. They are no longer only a necessity for the home; we are using them outside this season! Wear them as slides with a long maxi skirt or pair of jeans, or wear them as a pair of brogues with some pants and a big coat. Choose the type of material you’d want to use, whether it’s wool, faux fur, or teddy cloth; the softness will massage your feet and give a sweet touch to your already gorgeous ensemble.
8. Fluorescent Green Accessories
If pink isn’t your favorite color, why not try green instead? Fluro colors have become very popular this season. For the bubblegum shade, it’s all about adopting daring accessories this season, unlike the monotone outfits we saw. This trend is a great way to add a little additional oomph to an already vivid outfit or to elevate a modest ensemble—think shoes, bags, scarves, sunglasses, and everything in between. It’s not necessary to combine all of the parts at once, but if you’re feeling really daring, you can surely do so.
