Stockholm Style in Zurich

SS_121013_StockHolm_COVER

The other day I thought the city of Istanbul was spelled ‘Instanbul.’ ‘Uh, it’s not spelled like ‘instagram,’ my husband said. ‘Ya, I know how to spell the capital of Turkey,’ I replied. And let’s just stop right there.* I won’t even get started on my other geographical and historical errors since living in Europe. These days, I pay a lot more attention to world news beyond the Today Show to prevent embarrassing myself in circles of expat smarties. (*The capital of Turkey is Ankara in case you’re in the same boat as me.)

I’m also expanding my style regions. Over the weekend I came across a Stockholm, Sweden winter feature in a German fashion mag. The trends are best described as bundled up chic in the city. I’ve never been to Sweden, but decided to give it a shot over the weekend and layer up in leather. Here’s 4 trends I wore to achieve my ‘American fashion blogger does Stockholm street style in Zurich’ look…

Savvy Spice Stockholm Style

1. An Oversized Jacket ~ Pile it over winter layers on days when it’s bone-chilling cold. I love oversized coats because it feels like you’re being wrapped up in a blanket and covers most of your body.

2. On the Fringe ~ European hairdressers are pros at cutting blunt bangs. Blonde or not, try a fringe or a faux fringe for an instant ‘Stockholm Hair Style.’

3. Faux Leather Pants ~ I wear black pants or tights almost every day in Europe so it’s nice to switch it up with faux leather and a metallic top so it’s not head to toe charcoal.

4. How to Wear the Lingerie Trend ~ Sheer, lace, and lingerie inspired tops and dresses are ‘in’ now, especially in Europe. For the most part, lingerie style is NSFW, but wear lace styles layered or under a blazer for a weekend chic ‘come hither’ look.

  4. Hi Dale,

    You are so fortunate to have the opportunity to travel like this and I love the way you are changing/expanding your wardrobe knowledge. Layering is so sophisticated and elegant. I like the long winter coats for the cold days. They really do make a difference. Are you handling change in temperature?? It’s so cold there!! xxL

  5. I am head over heels in love with your fingerless gloves and your ombre style coat. And although I knew how to spell Istanbul, I had no idea what the capital of Turkey was, so you learn something new every day!

    I love everything about this outfit! The boots, the coat, the shimmery top underneath, it’s perfect!!!

    I too get stuck in a rut of wearing black skinnies everyday. I need to get some leather pants like these to switch it up!

  9. You look amazing, Dale. I love your coat.
