Swedish Fashion: Minimalistic Stockholm
It’s time to broaden your horizons, literally. Many say that travel broadens our mind. And if you have spent seven million hours in a queue, waiting on a delayed Ryanair flight, then you will grasp the mind altering effects seeing the world can actually have. They say going abroad can also help jump start your own style too. See what I did there? It wasn’t funny was it? Comical stereotypes aside, heading off to some of the worlds most stylish cities can help you gain some sweet wardrobe moves that you wouldn’t have learnt from your couch while watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians. And with only a few holiday a year, there is not a lot of time for the amount of ground you should be covering. Whoever said minimalism was boring? It’s classic. It’s tasteful. It’s timeless. A capital that is well known for its stripped back approach when it comes to style, Stockholm’s modestly dress men make it the standard bearer for fashion in the Scandinavian part of the world. Much to the embarrassment of its Nordic neighbours may I add. Still not convinced? Head on over to Google there. There is a complete Pinterest sub genre dedicated to the cities love of monochromatic, pared back interiors. And there is an even bigger appreciation of the nation’s wardrobes over on Tumblr, with many pages bursting at the seams (do web pages have seams?) full of pictures of the unofficial Swedish uniform of clean black and white lines. I may be borderline obsessed. . . However, don’t write off the swedes. They are far from unadventurous. If anything, they are sartorially sensible. Think about the last time you came across someone in monochrome looking a mess. It rarely happens. It’s time to take your cue from the ever so stylish Swedes and strip back that palette of yours and sharpen that silhouette. It’s time to be Scandi cool.
