Cecilie Bahnsen made this a trend a few years ago at the 2019 Fashion Week in Copenhagen, and we’re in love with it. Not only is it feminine and edgy, but it really is a comfy look that is timeless. Marked by a mix of flounce and simplicity, volume and sculptural silhouettes, her style is easy, breezy and classic. So while you may not be able to get your hands on her collection, then check out these brands that nail the look.
Feminine Yet Functional: Nail This Danish Fashion Trend With These Brands
The collection Sparrow, from Vajor, has whole lot of dresses that are bohemian-style with the minimalist edge. The Daisy dress, the Ocean one and Bliss all get this trend on-point. What makes them even better is that the whole collection is sustainable, and made from breathable fabric. Slow fashion for the win!
Authent focuses on designs that personify style and comfort. So, it’s no wonder that their white Bohemian dress is a favourite with Team LBB. Cap sleeves add to the top of this dress being fitted to the bust and the flare then begins for the quintessential bohemian look.
With a few puff-sleeved dresses, tiered midis and maxis that are reminiscent of gauzy Danish-style dresses. Vero Moda will always have this kind of style on offer, even if the whole collection isn’t the same. My current favourite is this colour-blocked midi dress that can be worn all year round. Just switch up the accessories and you're sorted.
Of all the brands I love for this trend, Marche really nails it best! Most of Marche’s collection is dominated by floral prints and bright solids in the form of dresses - mini, midi and maxi, and tunics. Utilitarian yet feminine, throw on a belt if you want to add jazz, or just leave the outfits as they should be - flowy, comfortable and voluminous. Check it out here.
Kuber Studio blends cute with comfy in almost all of their outfits. But this two-tone, gathered printed dress is a top favourite. With a silhouette enough to shape the outfit, but without being cinched at the waist, it’s a lovely choice if you’re going to the casual chic look.
Well, if something is in vogue, can an H&M dress or two be far behind. Of course not! And following the exact Bahnsen style, the high street brand has a few options. The jacquard weave one is my favourite for its raglan balloon sleeves with narrow trims, and the lovely flair on the tiered skirt. There are also dresses in cotton and Lyocell in a similar style.
This brand almost always has all things cool and in style, so the Danish trend is not different. Check out this Electric Blue Maxi Dress that is perfect for the quick breakfast with your BFF before heading off to a work lunch. Or vice versa, because I’d prefer a quick work breakfast!
Complete with billowy sleeves and flared skirt, this mellow mauve dress is ideal if you’re going for the demure look. I love that it’s got a drawstring fastening, to add that hint of edge to the outfit. While you’re on the Ishrey section, also check out the blouses and co-ord sets which also weave in the trend a little bit - like in the sleeves, or cut.
