Copenhagen Fashion Week AW22 was held from September 21st to October 2nd. We’ve compiled a list of the most popular fashion trends from the show. Copenhagen is recognized for its bold colors, lively and creative interpretations of runway trends, and unapologetic self-assurance. This season was no different, particularly in terms of street style. Experiments with patterns, mixing clashing colors, and a return to classic stylings was all the rage on the catwalk and in the streets, inspiring a slew of new trends for the next season. Take a cue from us as we show you the latest trends from the AW22 Fashion Week in Copenhagen.
’70s Floral Prints
This season, nostalgia was big on and off the runway, with designers drawing inspiration from the classic floral print of the 1970s. The addition of varied sizes to a monochromatic or pattern-clashing combination looks terrific, and you can swap them out for added complexity. A faux fur jacket or trench coat will give the ensemble a modern edge. Alternatively, you can incorporate other decade-specific aspects such as flared pants or a little skirt. Whether you’re wearing patterned trousers, a maxi dress, or a shirt, mixing colors will instantly improve your look.
The ’80s influenced fashion choices for decades, from oversized jackets to shell suits and high-waisted swimwear. For many reasons, we’ve seen business casual wear, but give it an ’80s twist by teaming roll necks with blazers and straight-leg pants – for a more authentic style, add a string of pearls and a few brooches. Combine your favorite white sneakers with a loose-fitting pair of jeans and a bright-colored pullover while running errands for the ultimate homage to the decade.
Boho grunge is another trend that comes and goes, combining hippie inspirations from the 1960s and 1970s with the laid-back, non-compliant nature of the 1990s grunge movement. Combine artistic designs, such as paisley, crochet, and florals, with skater-girl accessories, such as torn jeans, khaki, leather jackets, and clunky combat boots, to achieve this edgy aesthetic. Mix and match different components to suit your taste, adding accessories such as artistically designed scarves, colored eyeglasses, or a crocheted cardigan to complete the outfit.
Crochet Crop Tops
Crocheted pieces have been seen on the runways of Fendi, Bottega Veneta, and Dior for a few seasons, and now we’re seeing them on the streets of Copenhagen. Knitted pieces can be worn all year, not only in the summer. It’s all about stacking it with various styles this season to create a mega-blend of genres. For a creative take on standard business wear, pair a crochet bralette with an oversized blazer and slacks. Other components of your costume, such as your socks or coats, might be used to highlight crucial colors. A basic pair of jeans, on the other hand, would be a perfect match for the beautiful crop top – add some sandals for a fresh summer feel, or change them out for a pair of sneakers.
Hats with Faux Fur
Wear a faux fur cap to summon your inner Cher or Dionne and live your life like it’s 1995. This very beautiful and edgy alternative to the conventional headpiece is a fantastic accent to any winter ensemble and will keep you warm while keeping you looking stylish. From a beret to a bucket hat, there are many ways to wear this trend while still looking stylish. For a more modest look, pair tailored separates, a rollneck, or a maxi coat with a conventional silhouette. Try a monochrome dress in a bright hue, such as neon pink or a blend of shades, if you want to go a little more Avant-Garde. Add a matching hat or a pop of color to the ensemble’s accent.
When the temperature begins to drop and your feet begin to feel the chill, wrap them in a pair of puffy shoes to keep them warm and toasty. We’re taking them outside this season; they’re no longer only a household need! Wear them as slides with a long maxi skirt or jeans, or as brogues with a maxi coat and trousers. Choose from a variety of materials, such as teddy fabric, faux fur, or wool, to relax your feet and give a lovely touch to an already great ensemble.
Leather Jackets & Coats in Fluro Pink and Fuchsia
The adoption of bright colors this year in the shape of leather jackets and coats is one of the greatest trends from Copenhagen that we witness every season. Fluro pink is a daring color, but with the right styling, it can become a show-stopper. Wear a monotone ensemble from head to toe to make a statement. Keep it simple with a pair of jeans and a faux leather bomber to keep things cool. An oversized fit will give the overall appearance a throwback air, but if you prefer something more fitted, go for a biker jacket with exaggerated lapels or a trench coat with a columnlike design.
Accessories in Fluorescent Green
This season, we’ve been obsessed with fluro colors, so if pink isn’t your thing, try green. Unlike the monochrome ensembles we’ve seen, this season’s bubblegum shade is all about daring accessories. Think shoes, handbags, scarves, sunglasses, and everything in between — this trend is a great way to dress up a simple outfit or add a pop of color to a more bright ensemble. You don’t have to wear all of the pieces at once, but if you’re feeling especially daring, mixing a few isn’t a bad idea.
Maxi Coats in Full Length
It’s cold outside, and there’s no better way to keep warm than with a voluminous maxi coat. We’re putting a casual spin on the trend this season, rather than adhering to semi-formal or smart casual situations to flaunt the look. Swap off your puffer jacket and leggings for tracksuit trousers, chunky sneakers, and a full-length wool coat if you’re going out for coffee or to the store. It’s a simple way to dress up a laid-back look without straying too far from your comfort zone. Wear it with a t-shirt and jeans for a more refined look, or go edgy with leather pants and a pair of statement boots for a more edgy look.
Jackets with Fringed Details
When you go outside, add some unique fringe to your jacket to make a genuine impact. This outerwear trend has been around for decades, and it’s making a comeback this season. In images (ideal for your next Instagram photoshoot) or just walking down the street, the freefalling movement across the arms and back looks beautiful. Keep the rest of the appearance simple, and allow the cascading textiles strips do the talking.
