With the onset of autumn and the approach of cold weather I offer to look at the style of Scandinavians, because they have winter for six months a year too and they know how to stay stylish in sub-zero temperatures. The words that can describe the Scandinavian style of clothing are convenience, practicality, comfort and minimalism. Let's figure out how to achieve the "Northern touch"?
Monochrome colors in clothes
In respect to color range the Scandinavians are highly conservative and prefer neutral shades: grey, white, black, beige.
Naturalness and simplicity are another distinctive feature of the Scandinavian wardrobe. If Scandinavians shift away from neutral colors, they choose a palette close to the rich natural shades: green meadows, emerald fjords, earthy soil, blue sky. And all this is made of natural fabrics: wool, cotton, silk.
Sweaters with ethnic prints
The famous sweaters with reindeer, which fill Christmas markets in all countries, come from Scandinavia. In the "Northern" wardrobe there are always a few warm clothes with folk motifs — an eight-pointed star, snowflakes, Christmas trees.
Volumetric warm scarf is a real helper for the weather. Scandinavian winter lasts for six months, often it rains or snows, chilly wind blows, so the scarf is a real salvation.
Jewelry is not the most popular category among the Scandinavian women. If they choose something, it will be simple: laconic forms, fine lines.
