copenhagen street style

now that my semester abroad in Copenhagen starts in just 18 very short days, I am starting to think about what I'll need to pack for my journey.  my study abroad advisor recommended to not pack everything in my closet (obviously) but that most kids actually end up buying totally new wardrobes while they are abroad (what?!).  since I'm looking to spend more money on delicious Danish pastries and airfare to travel across Europe than on yet another striped shirt, I decided to do a little research and see what the Danes are wearing now so that I don't feel too out of place. some quick googling led me to Copenhagen StreetStyle, which has since stopped updating its pictures, The Locals, The Street Fashion Monitor, and Cycle Chic.  they seem to favor classic shapes and colors and layering, which makes sense because the climate is pretty mild and the city is very traditional.  at least that's what I've gathered from reading Culture Shock! Denmark.
