The best street style at Copenhagen Fashion Week SS23


Copenhagen Fashion Week has returned with a vengeance. And again, his street style scene was electric.

This SS23 season however, rather than flooding the streets with feminine florals, flowing dresses and bright colors, the Scandi-style ensemble has taken on a more grunge aesthetic altogether; featuring Y2K-inspired style staples, a mainstay among editors and influencers who attend the shows.


Baggy, bold cargo pants are new this season, along with wrap-around hues, pointed knee-high boots beloved by Anastasia and Shania Twain, acid-wash denim, bandanas and oversized bomber jackets.

It’s a mish-mash of the 90s and 2000s that nods to Gen Z aesthetics — perhaps fitting for a week in which CPHFW announced a new partnership with TikTok.


As the shows went on – which counted Ganni, AERON and ROTATE Birger Christensen as highlights – the statement outfits also increased. Tin foil style shirts burst in the evening sun, while ripped and baggy jeans convincingly demonstrated that distressed denim is on the rise.

Loewe’s two-tone sunglasses, Paula’s Ibiza sunglasses, were the must-have accessory for the boys, and the technical tailoring with drawstrings at the waist gave the old classics an elegant touch. If you can count on the Copenhagen crew for anything, it’s to deliver chic in spades – even though this year it was 20s on the moodboard.
