European Fashion Stories: Dress Like A Scandinavian

Working at Fashiola HQ means working amongst a team of editors from all over the world. That means there's a real mixture of influences on fashion from the UK to Turkey, but there is one stand out style that always grabs the other's attention: Scandinavian Fashion.

The Scandi style has made an impact across the world; perhaps it's the effortlessly chic minimalism which has hooked the world's attention or how we can turn such a small range colors into a vast number of outfits. There's a certain skill to creating Scandi style inspired outfits and we've put together a few looks to get you started on your quest to conquer the Scandinavian minimalism - here we go!

When it comes to Scandinavian fashion there are a few key details remember. Comfort is key: you will often find us wearing something oversized = comfort. Our wardrobes are made up of mainly natural materials and fibers, so organic cotton and linen. And most importantly - black is the new black. We love to keep this neutral with our color palettes and have finessed the monochrome look.
