How to nail Scandi chic

‘Scandi chic’ – the holy grail of style for today’s fashion concious man. This ‘trend’ is all about pairing tailored pieces with comfortable, everyday essentials. The colour palette of choice here is a monochromatic one, keeping the look slick. Try to avoid colour at all costs and if you really insist on adding colour to your look, opt for a pastel shade.

Below are some key pieces to add to your wardrobe to successfully execute ‘Scandi chic’;

Wide leg trousers – The skinny jean is dead – slim, tapered and wide leg trousers are the cut of choice when choosing jeans or trousers.


Raw hem jeans – Cropped just at the ankle bone and left unfinished and frayed, raw hem jeans are all the rage when updating your Scandi wardrobe for Summer 2016!


Refined outerwear – The outerwear can be refined to 3 styles – A bomber jacket, Peacoat and biker jacket to carry you through from day to day.


Stripe or plain tops – The Scandi top of choice will either be a plain t-shirt or a wardrobe classic such as the Breton Stripe.


The Chambray & White shirts – It’s only proper to wear a shirt when the occasion calls for it. Opt for light chambray and white to take you from work to the dinner table with ease.


Footwear – You don’t need a big arsenal of shoes for this style. A pair of Adidas Stan Smith, Converse All Stars and Brogues are the only styles you’ll need when putting together your daily look.
