Scandinavian style is everywhere at the moment. If you’re not watching Scandi dramas, admiring Nordic architecture or booking a reservation in the world’s top restaurant (Noma in Copehagen) then chances are you’re trying to emulate razor sharp Scandinavian style in your clothes.
If you like statement clothing, then there’s a lot to be learnt from Scandinavian style with its simple silhouettes, effortless combinations and timeless expert craftsmanship. For men, the minimalist Nordic look is much easier to pull off than some other styles and women can tap into similar benefits.
Whether you are thinking Nordic ruggedness or festive prints, this look lends itself easily to a masculine wardrobe and truly features something for everyone. This article aims to showcase top Scandinavian fashion trends by showing you how to put the look together with a few key additions to your existing wardrobe.

Scandi suits
The key to channelling Scandinavian style is often simplicity – something evident in the clean lines of their suits. As a nod to Nordic influences, pick suits with sharp, modern fits and quality fabrics. Pay attention to the quality of the workmanship and let classic and bold style be your calling card.
Sportswear reloaded
Famous for their innovative streak, the Scandinavians have reinvented a lesser-known fashion trend in the form of ‘golfer chic’. By combining functionality with contemporary styling, sports luxe clothing like this is perfect for a comfortable yet edgy look.

Try beautifully tailored shirts and knitwear – visit the Edinburgh Woollen Mill mens knitwear selection for inspiration – alongside polo shirts and dramatic colours to create your very own capsule wardrobe.
Playful prints
Compared to British luxury styling that boasts a more muted palette, Scandinavian style prefers to combine extravagance with a flash of eccentricity. Although the look still embraces elegant chinos, classic knitwear and smart tees, it also champions prints in a big way. 

Think asymmetrical graphics, unique patterns and brave designs that scream statement. Ease yourself in to the look by teaming bright patterns with plain jeans.
Stripped back accessories
Whether you’re rocking a leather backpack, smart holdall, practical wallet or chic timepiece, the key word to look for is ‘quality’. Rather than selecting trendy accessories that will quickly become outdated, Scandinavian fashion dictates that less is more so streamline your visual in favour of durable materials, attention to detail and everyday functionality. 

Keep logos discreet, materials traditional and be prepared to pay a little more for timeless design that is built to last. But remember – sophisticated doesn’t mean boring. Stay true to your personal style and inject a pop of vibrant colour into your ensemble with a bright messenger bag or quirky iPad cover.
