I have never thought that Scandinavian people could make a real contribution to international style… before knowing the eclectic Danish stylist Pernille Teisbaek. Who is she? She is currently one of the most important fashion influencer in the world thanks to her personal blog lookdepernille.com (closed last year) and the exciting outfits that she shares daily with all of us on Instagram. I really adore her innate feeling for accessories and colours matching. I love discovering that she always holds the most iconic pieces combined perfectly with the basics. Needless to say, she is a source of inspiration for my personal style and my blog every day and I am happy that her first book “Dress Scandinavian” has launched in English last September.
I read it in 2 days’ time! I suggest everybody to grab a copy as soon as possible (on Amazon or net-a-porter.com) and enjoy Pernille’s secrets about how to build a durable wardrobe and what essentials you need to invest in to be cool like the best dressed Scandinavian girls.
Are you curious to know what I have appreciated the most? 1 – Her approach to the details, in particular how she uses golden jewels. 2 – Her innovative way to wear oversize sweaters and coats 3 – Pernille does not like too sexy outfits such us mini-skirts with cuissardes (ok, forget her bachelorette party) or very fitted dresses, but she is very attractive anyway! 4 – I love her choices in fact of shoes and I agree with her that we have to focus more on them: take basic blue jeans, simple grey or beige topwear, but a pair of sparkling red sandals is indispensable and can help you to improve your self-confidence.
