The capital of Denmark is fast becoming a style mecca. Just look at proof as documented by the photographers of Face Hunter, Street Peeper, and the city’s own Copenhagen Street Style. Nordic style-philes seem to appreciate shoes that whisper, not scream; that blend in to enhance an outfit without overwhelming the other elements.
The Danish are known for being mellow, and this applies to their pleasantly laid-back style – no fuss, some slouch, and touches of tomboy edge.
Chunky and strapped naturalistic suede sandals get a warm weather pick-me-up courtesy of pink silk shorts, a knotted tee, and flowing over-layer.
Sheer in the daytime? Copenhagen flaunts its racy side, with a lace pants and a suggestive button-down. Yellow platforms imbue humor to an otherwise all-black look.
Trust Christian Louboutin to make baggy, drawstring pants (the fact that they’re yellow and by Acne doesn’t hurt) look glam. Strappy black fringe sandals are heavy, in a good way.
How do you give a spring makeover to black ankle boots? Two ways:
Pair them with a dangerously short pleated mini, a slouchy sheer T-shirt, and a casual, classic Balenciaga style.
Or opt for a bold floral dress, messy bun, and rugged messenger bag – pretty, but not too pretty.

Cophenhagen loves Acne! Mango knockoffs of Isabel Marant’s famed “Otway” boots are updated and fresh with socks and a sheer maxi – perfect for transitional weather, iffy for bicycle-riding!
