With fall shopping on the brain, we’ve been starting to think up fresh formulas for which our newest pieces can shine bright. The Copenhagen street-style scene offered a stream of inspiration as Danish It girls sported many a trend for the upcoming season, from red boots and asymmetrical hems to modern tailoring en masse. Even though over-the-knee boots, long coats and thick layers are anything but practical in the thick of summer’s heat, the Scandinavian set showed us exactly how to start incorporating a few of these cool-weather staples into our current looks to get ahead of the game. Since we know you appreciate a good leg up on style, we gathered our favorite ensembles from the week to inspire you.
Asymmetrical hems are major for fall. Try yours now with a lightweight button-down and sandals, swapping in a sock boot once the weather cools.
Speaking of asymmetry, a single off-the-shoulder in a check print is the perfect transitional top. Team it with slim pants and an unusually shaped bag (another big accessory trend for fall) and you've got yourself an effortless outfit.
We can't emphasize the importance of red boots enough this season. Get experimental and wear against bright colors and prints for standout style—vintage floral is a prime pattern in focus this autumn.
Sculptural statement earrings and a nuanced handbag instantly reinvigorate your workwear.
Did we mention red boots were huge? Worn with a trench they read bold, yet practical.
Menswear-inspired pieces take on new life when exaggerated silhouettes are at play. A tonal palette ensures a mixed-print look remains wearable, not wacky.
The blazer is a modern hero piece when it comes to tailoring. With cropped denim and kitten heel pumps, this ensemble seamlessly transitions from summer to fall.
Proof that anything goes in the boot and dress department, stark white and vintage floral prints are two trendier takes to embrace with any dress or skirt style.
Oversize bags are fall's carryall du jour—keep yours cool with a T-shirt, polished skirt and boot pairing.
Timeless pieces don't have to be boring. Jazz up a classic trench and a checked trouser in a snap with bold sculptural earrings.
We spy two handbag trends in one: a ladylike top handle emblazed with a designer logo. Wear yours with everything from dresses to denim for an easy-chic effect.
Keep your corporate look cool with a reworked blazer and miniskirt—a neutral palette of checks and classic black ground avant-garde details.
Over-the-knee boots in fire engine red make for a dramatic albeit sophisticated pop against sleek black and white outerwear.
