Copenhagen FW Spring 2024 trends

While Scandinavians would agree that “there is no bad weather, only bad outfits," designers and influencers alike didn’t expect severe rain to dominate Spring/Summer 2024 Copenhagen Fashion Week. But if there is a city known to adapt to something as unpredictable as the weather, is it definitely the Danish capital. As GANNI closed CPHFW on Thursday night, Copenhagen proved once again to be a true trendsetter — one that knows how to create versatile, refined, and sustainable looks.

Dressing for the weather was a heavy theme this season, with brands like Skall Studio, Stine Goya, and Remain presenting transitional pieces one could wear pretty much anywhere and anytime. But there were also more defined and daring trends among fresh newcomers such as Gestuz and Rolf Ekroth you would want to add to your closet before the summer ends.

One thing is for certain: Thanks to Copenhagen, we already have a good idea of what to look forward to next spring and summer. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the eight best trends from Copenhagen Fashion Week, to wear now or later.

Earthy Brown Tones

Copenhagen's lively streets and runways were marked with inviting shades of brown. From espresso leather jackets and light trench coats to saddle Santiags boots, the earthy shades are on the brink of ubiquity. Stine Goya masterfully infused this trend into her collection, featuring a creamy caramel belted vest paired elegantly with cargo pants. Lovechild 1979 showcased tailored jackets and wide-leg pants in softer hues, while GANNI presented a versatile tonal suit. With their adaptable hues, earthy brown tones are officially invited to blend into your closet.

Peekaboo Looks

Scandinavian designers have mastered the art of see-through garments, and we’re happy to report that crochet dresses and peekaboo tops aren’t going anywhere next year. Rising designer A. Roege Hove orchestrated her entire collection around celebrating the beauty of transparency and skin through showpieces that included flirtatiously sheer tops and A-line knitted skirts.

The Danish sisters behind Skall Studio opted for more subtle skin exposure, with a set of feminine, classic, creamy crochet garments. But here’s the thing: Their garments aren't just riding the trend wave; they're built to withstand the test of time, proving that peekaboo looks are more than a fleeting craze — they're a fashion statement here to stay.

Masculine Cuts

At CPHFW, you couldn’t turn a corner or catch a show without encountering sleek, masculine silhouettes. Copenhagen was practically a parade of sartorial mastery with standout designers like Gestuz, who presented oh-so-structural and sophisticated coats. MKTD took the lead by channeling 1930s Korea, complete with elegant yet refreshingly unpretentious suits that demanded attention.

But the trend isn't confined to the realm of bespoke tailoring. Skall Studio, always one for simplicity, interpreted the trend through oversized shorts and breezy open shirts; the perfect way to blend style and ease before fall comes around.

Baby Blues

We've got the next must-have muted hue: baby blue! This is the discreet color of the season, sweeping across the Scandi landscape. Paired with flowers, whimsical shells, and cloud prints, baby blue practically begs to be worn in warmer months.

In Copenhagen, Marimekko sent denim jumpsuits and tailored skirts down the runway, while Helmstedt wowed us with silky shorts that are basically a blue dream come true. Overall, the tone was to embrace the softness of the sky and the sea, just as Skall Studio conceptualized it through its entire collection. With flowy baby blue ensembles and denim sets, CPHFW proves baby blue belongs in your closet.

Buy yourself flowers — the kind you can wear, that is. The Copenhagen runways blossomed with floral fever, hinting at your next must-have print. In the Nordics, flowers are deeply embedded within the fashion industry. Just peek at Marimekko, who designs garments around their iconic petal, featured across everything from throw-on dresses and twirl-worthy skirts. Then there's Rolf Ekroth, who took us on a nostalgic journey through "rose-tinted glasses" with floor-kissing dresses. And let’s not forget Stine Goya, who opted for her signature water-painted prints in silky textures.

Minimalist Monochrome

If you're aiming for that effortlessly chic Scandinavian vibe, dive into monochrome dressing. First, GANNI mixed an eggshell crochet dress with its tonal cardigan. Then, MKTD showcased a charcoal blouse elegantly layered over a flowing skirt. But while keeping the exact same hue makes for a perfect transitional look, Lovechild 1979 simplified the colorblocking trend by blending creamy wide-leg pants with a slightly deeper, off-white knit. Whether you're twinning shades or dancing in contrasts, these looks truly embody Scandi-chic at its finest.

SS24 Copenhagen Fashion Week was marked by jaw-dropping statement jewelry about to take your accessorizing game to a whole new level. On the runway, you couldn’t miss sets of dramatic silver earrings at Stine Goya or chunky gold cuffs from Love Child 1979 that practically danced with each step. Within the cobblestone of the city, there wasn’t an influencer not wearing pieces by Danish models Amalie and Cecilie Moosgaard. Whether that was the beaded necklace made of red carnelian stone or popular drop earrings, Copenhagen’s most glamorous crowd all had their hands on Lie Studio.

Beads & Pearls

Copenhagen Fashion Week took the statement game up a notch, proving that pearls and beads don’t just belong on your neck. With a deep love for the natural and refined gems of nature, many designers accentuated their collection with delicate dazzle. They were spotted on silky, spaghetti-strapped dresses at Stine Goya, beaded into sheer tube tops on the A. Roege Hove runway, and embroidered onto head wraps and draped shirts at MKTD. From the runway, it was clear that beads and pearls were meant to embellish garments. MKTD described the addition as water droplets trickling on the fabric, an ode to the drizzly summer rain of Copenhagen we’re just about ready to wear all season.
