Standing out in Stockholm street style

These easy 3 ingredient pancakes are the perfect way to start your day. The best part? They are easy to make, gluten free and taste delicious!

Last week, Jelle and I visited Stockholm for a few days. The amazing capital of Sweden is known for it’s style and design, but we found that there is so much more to Stockholm than this.

For instance the kindness and politeness of the people. Never have I met friendlier and more helpful people who switched to English in a sec when you asked them something. I heard completely other stories about this, so maybe they’re only friendly in restaurants and shops, but anyhow, the people were very helpful!

Stocholm street style

 

Swedish style is impeccable too. On every corner there is a design-, vintage or decor-shop, there are what we call hipsters everywhere (but I guess that’s the norm there) and the clothes people from Stockholm wear, are of great quality and class. 

Dressing the Stockholm-way is wearing toned down colours such as black, grey, navy and camel, wearing a well cut, but oversized coat, a cool beanie on your hat and your bag on your back, not your arm. O, and white shoes are nowhere to be seen. Instead wear more comfy and waterproof leather boots (no heels!) to keep your feet warm in the snow.

In my bright red pants and white shoes I felt like an outsider and the bright colour definitely attracted some attention, hehe. The way to stand out is therefore very easy: wear bright and bold colours! I’m not saying nobody was wearing something bright, but the Swedes tend to make a statement with big coats and shawls to attract attention instead of using colour. Also,  stay away from the white shoes when it starts to snow though, leather boots really are more practical in the wintery climate. 

Red pants – MANGO, striped sweater – H&M, black coat – Zara, white sneakers – Vans, leather gloves – Hema

That is indeed an eye catching outfit. Boots will be perfect for a cold winter weather. Your red pants is a statement that you are in style.
