A long-time optional stop for editors and models, Copenhagen has always been considered a fashion month underdog. Although it still does not have the status of New York, Paris or Milan, it has since risen to prominence and is now considered an up-and-coming fashion calendar fixture. A vital launch pad for young designers, a few emerging names in the current global fashion scene also first made their mark on the runways of Copenhagen Fashion Week, namely Ganni, Stine Goya, Saks Potts, and Rotate Birger Christensen.

Not only acting as a hotbed for emerging designers, street photography has also become a prominent byproduct that came out of fashion week. The emergence of street photography encourages fashionistas to go all out on their style endeavors, all while providing a platform for like-minds to get inspired by local trends across various fashion capitals. Potentially seen as the extension of runways, The Future Rocks editorial team breaks down the essentials in nailing the Scandi girl style with the help of this year’s street snaps highlights of Copenhagen Fashion Week.

The Talk to My Hand

Just a while back, babies were Hollywood A-listers’ best fashion accessories. With all the then-babies turning into toddlers, this cool individual is here to demonstrate what’s next - a back-to-basics favorite, a pair of shades, and a touch of coolness are (almost) all you need.


To finish it off, especially at times of heatwave, a simple pendant necklace to highlight your collarbone is of the essence. Get her look with Maren’s ReMind pendant featuring a single lab-grown diamond.

The United Colors of Copenhagen

To some, black and white are the only two elements required in the formula for success in fashion terms. To some Copenhageners, “color” is not a dirty word; it literally makes or breaks the outfit. That being said, we understand that a yellow coat with puffed sleeves is not for everyone, and that’s where Alondra’s Horizon double link earrings come in.

The Art Student

Yes, “art student” is a rather vague description, but what you see here shouldn’t be too far off from what first came to your mind. We can’t pinpoint precisely what added the touch of youthfulness to this outfit - it could be the bandana worn on the subject’s head, the knit turtleneck top with a leather vest, or potentially Alondra’s Palm twist wide hoop earrings that shine just as bright as the subject’s smile.

The Denim Chic

Who would’ve thought what started as the workwear fabric choice for western cowboys, miners, and farmers in the US could stay as relevant in the 21st century and ultimately become a fashion staple that never goes out of style? The perfect piece of garment fit for dressing both up and down, a pair of denim jeans is practically the go-to if you’re running out of styling ideas for your spaghetti strap top or that little tweed jacket that’s been sitting in the closet because you never knew what to do with it.


Why stop there when you could further up your styling game with Rêver’s V Pave Bracelet for a minimalist yet bold touch?

The Matrix Off-duty

Yes, there are times when you feel like dressing like a supermodel (No? Just me?), and it’s okay. It’s time to wear that signature piece that you’ve always wanted to pull off whenever you’re feeling the attention. People may ask if you’d like to choose the red or blue pill; they may fire imaginary shots at you and wonder why you’re not dodging them in style. But it doesn’t matter because life is too short to care what others think.


Style your Matrix Off-duty look with Monarc’s Cleopatra Double Hoop Earrings for a classy and timeless touch.

The Vintage Revival

Style lasts while trends don’t. Why waste time chasing what wouldn’t stay but not act smart and opt for a timeless option with a proven success rate? Even if I were only to consider the Early Modern Period onwards, there are still at least 500 years’ worth of style evolution for you to choose from. Certainly a style for everyone, the sky is the limit when it comes to dipping your toes into vintage hunting.


Shall you wish to spice up your vintage-style endeavor with a touch of modernness, we recommend Unsaid’s Whirlwind 18K gold pendant that balances elegance, style and class.

The Two-tone Queen

As big of a believer in getting out of your comfort zone, we understand green and yellow are not for everyone. Should you feel adventurous but in a somewhat “comfortable” manner, a safe two-tone outfit with an accessory choice of a stronger personality is all you need.


The perfect medium-weight chain that could be worn alone or stacked with your favorite necklaces, Monarc’s Suitor Chain is handcrafted in 100% recycled metals and is available in various lengths: 40cm, 45cm and 50cm.
