Stockholm is an incredibly stylish city, and I know I have mentioned that about a bazillion times. I am not sure what makes the Scandis so chic, but I would definitely say that it’s their ability to make simplicity stand out. Usually they use the colors black, white and grey and then add a piece of clothing that peps the whole look up. It is also worth mentioning that Scandis have made comfort look classy. Whereas women in New York City are spending money on Manolos and Louboutins, Scandis love nothing more than a good old sneaker that they managed to make look nothing short of dapper.
In order to show you how much Stockholm is in vogue, I have decided to start the Avenue Style column. Every now and then I try myself out as a street style photographer to get people with outstanding style in front of my camera.
Here are my first attempts. Enjoy the gallery.

“I believe in fashion changing the world in a positive way. I believe in young people who can do that. They can get out and change the world. Fashion is changing and so are we. We get practical, because we need to move faster. We don’t use cars, so we are wearing comfortable, yet stylish foot wear. The future is the young people.”
What I am wearing: Acne, Ann Demeulemeester and Wild Fox Bel Air sunglasses.

“Stockholmers have in general good style. You can find lots of outstanding people here in Södermalm”.
At this point I have to add that when approaching Josefin, I had no idea that she is a famous blogger. It was a wonderful coincidence to meet her this way.
