Today, I have a very exciting post indeed. There are two reasons why it is an exciting one… firstly, it’s a fashion/trend/inspiration/outfit idea post, which I miss writing, and secondly, I’ve teamed up with ASOS *fan girls* You guys know how much I love them, so I am truly excited to be sharing with you a little bit of style inspiration. Not any kind of style though, I’ll be talking all about ‘Scandimania’ and those hip girls in Scandinavia…
Jumper – Bag – Leather Skirt – Jeans – Cropped Shirt – Blue Brogues – Flats – Wrap Skirt – Oversized Blouse
For me, Scandinavian style has always made me think of folk prints, but after a quick Pinterest session, I came to the conclusion that I was simply wrong. ‘Scandi style’ is all about simplicity, and masculinity… sorry to stereotype if you are actually Scandinavian… it’s all about getting that balance between chic and casual. Another bonus is the fact it’s the perfect style for travel, and holidaying. It has that comfort factor with the baggy oversized shapes, but you won’t look too under dressed when you pair a slouchy shirt with some patent brogues. It’s all about the finishing touches! I personally quite like the whole look and feel of the sorts of outfits that they can think up… I’m just not sure how well it would work on a small 14 year old like me!
I made the little grid above into a sort of mix and match board for some inspiration. It works vertically and horizontally so if you are in need of some ‘Scandimania’ outfit inspiration, ASOS and I have you sorted! My favourite combination is probably the ripped jeans and cropped shirt. It’s simple and sophisticated but has that slight masculine toughness the whole way through. What’s your favourite combo? Let me know in the comments 🙂
