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. Β 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?!). Β 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. Β 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. Β at least that's what I've gathered from reading Culture Shock! Denmark.
