This winter, we’re embracing the season’s cold weather and chills with trendy pieces inspired by our Euro cousins to the North. From detailed, geometric prints to subtle hues of our favorite colors, Nordic-inspired fashion is taking over our wardrobe. Not quite sure how to try this trend? Here are six Nordic essentials that will keep you stylish (and warm!) all winter long.
Perhaps the most recognized Nordic-inspired trend is an intricate print that features crisp, clean lines and geometric shapes. When styling this trendy, yet elaborate pattern, wear simple bottoms and minimal accessories to keep all eyes your top. If this look is a little too bold for you, wear a scarf that features the print paired with a solid, knit sweater.
The best thing about Nordic fashion is that you can stay warm in cold weather without sacrificing style. Opt for cozy knit sweaters in muted, earthy colors – staying far away from the bold shades that commanded your wardrobe last summer. Pair with your go-to denim jeans and neutral ankle booties for an understated look that’s as comfy as it is stylish.
While plaid can be worn throughout any season, stick to darker shades like navy and burgundy wine red this winter. Loose silhouettes create a cozy, casual vibe and pair well with your favorite skinny jeans or leggings. Finish the look with an effortless top knot and you’ll be ready to hit the streets (even if they’re covered in snow).
For those brisk, winter days you want to stay wrapped up in a blanket, opt for a faux suede cardigan lined with soft sherpa fabric. While this comfy, neutral shawl will be the focal point of your look, add your favorite tasseled scarf to provide an easy pop of color.
Cargo jackets are stylish, yet simple, making them the perfect pair for an intricate Nordic print. To ensure your ensemble doesn’t become too distracting, opt for a jacket in a neutral hue or an earthy olive green. The colors complement all of our go-to winter shades – plus, this seasonal pattern will remain the star of the show.
Bring boho inspiration to your cool weather ensemble with fringe tassel details on your sweater or scarf. While Nordic trends are typically casual and simple, this is an easy way to add just a little something extra. Even if you opt not to wear any jewelry, this detail is almost an accessory in itself!
