Since a couple of years that I've been found Scadinavian living and culture very close to my personal interests and behavior. This is obviously connected with the way I look at fashion and tend to create my own style, very close to theirs. Scandinavian society are always one step ahead in fashion and they're strongly design and trend conscious with higher disposable incomes that lets them be in the pole in terms of new brands that are emerging every year. This is coupled with the fact that Sweden has a strong and globally competitive fashion and design trade sector of its own. Brands such as ACNE, WESC, BRUNS BAZAAR, COS, HOPE are relatively recent but have been noticing great growing results which have made them leading examples of upcoming trends and styles.
The pictures below are from a streetstyle blog that I've just found that has amazing looks, most of them female - plain patterns, rich materials, minimalistic shapes and neutral colours defines it perfectly.
