Finally, as the cold weather draws in, and the mist settles, the autumn girlies crawl out of their nests and rejoice that it is a_t _last jumper season. Autumn is the best season in terms of fashion- you can fight us on that one. Sweaters, scarves, coats- all have ample opportunity to layer the fabulous on top of each other. If you're wondering what the it look of autumn 2022 is, look no further, we're here to announce that it is...Scandi fashion.
Indeed, you may have seen Scandi fashion taking over TikTok recently, and for good reason. Inspired by the cultural fashion trends of Scandinavia (Geography lesson- that's Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Ok, pencils away class.) Scandi fashion mixes the clean girl look with a sprinkle of balletcore, and a huge dollop of the coastal grandmother aesthetic that went viral this spring.
Think crisp white cottons, navy stripes, Boston clogs and trench coats. A modern Danish woman wears layers that seamlessly blend together without clashes. Minimal patterns or bright colours- but with maximum impact due to its beautiful simplicity.
We're obsessed with TikTok fashion creator @stylingemilybeaney's Scandi fashion videos, and so we've created a Scandi fashion lookbook inspired by her TikToks. Make sure to check her out after browsing our ultimate Scandinavian style guide below.
Scandi fashion: how to get the look in 2022
@stylingemilybeaney's first step to Scandi fashion is long sleeve tops, preferably ribbed. We've picked some out that are in classic Scandi colours aka muted as heck.
Step two is giving us Ebenezer Scrooge realness- striped trousers. Cargo trousers work great here, and Emily recommends the brand Carhartt, which is hard to come by in the UK. Luckily, we've found some stellar dupes that are more affordable.
"PJ bottoms as trousers?!" We hear you gasp. And yet, they laughed when we predicted noughties low-rise jeans would rise from the dead. Trust us- Scandivains know what's up, and they are geniuses for wearing comfy cotton trousers on the daily.
BOOT WEATHER IS BACK. And you can't make a better boot than UGGs. We've got three different styles here, so pick what suits your fancy. If you're looking for something slightly cheaper, check out our guide on where to find the best UGG dupes online.
There's nothing more Scandi than a striped t-shirt- not sure why, but it's peak Danish vibes. If you want to look like you've just flown in from Copenhagen, a striped top is a must.
Emily's next step to Scandi fashion is a padded vest, or a gilet as they're also known. These will be a saviour once it gets super cold and look hella stylish over a turtleneck. We've picked our favourites from online highstreets here.
Scandi fashion is not without its colour- case and point: quilted jackets. Totally Nordic and so darn pretty.
Wallabees- we can't wait till everyone is wearing them, and discovers what it feels like to walk on literal clouds.
Ok, this step may be a tad more expensive than the others, but if you've been thinking about grabbing a new pair of headphones this season, why not get overhead ones and incapsulate the look of a suave Swede. These SONY headphones have gone viral on TikTok for looking both retro and modern at the same time, and we can't lie- we need them right now.
A simple step, but a necessary one. Grey is a must-have colour in your Scandi wardrobe, and you can mix and match this basic with a ton of trouser options.
JUMPERS 😍 We've waited all summer to wear you, and we couldn't be more excited to be finally reunited. This autumn, you'll want to grab some Scandinavian-style jumpers. These consist of thick wool materials and striped or Nordic patterns.
Apart from @stylingemilybeaney's step-by-step guide to Scandi fashion, she also has OOTD videos where she shows how she incorporates her Danish roots into her wardrobe. She thrifted this hella-Scandi dress (she often thrifts from Vinted or Depop) and we've got some dupes from the highstreet.
Windbreakers- not just for your dad to wear on walks anymore. They're fashionable now. (P.s, check out Emily's video on how to make your windbreaker look sinched and fashionable and less dad-like...)
The colour white is going to take over your wardrobe this autumn, so be careful around the Ketchup. We've recreated this Pinterest look Emily loves here.
Finally, you can't have a Scandi-style wardrobe without a trench coat. We love the Pinterest look Emily talks about here, and so we've recreated it on a budget.
