Copenhagen Fashion Spots with Irene

Today I had a lovely evening, as I have  met a very lovely girl Irene. Irene is the fashion blogger from Madrid who is studying communication in Copenhagen.

You can read her blog here.
The weather in the capital of Denmark is very changeable. At the beginning of the evening it was raining, but all of a sudden the sun came out and it was just the right time for taking a walk. Irene told me about her life in the city and the style of Danish girls and boys.
Blokes in Denmark are very stylish. They follow the latest trends and really care of their look. Girls are keen on fancy outfit too. They prefer dark colors and clean lines in clothes, adding some bright details with colorful backpacks and trainers ( that are extremely popular as the main transport in Copenhagen is a bike). What is more they often wear headbands to protect their ears from cold wind while riding a bicycle and keeping hair in order. Irene joked that Danish girls have the "waterproof ability" having their hair always looking gorgeous and in order even if it's raining outside. :)
After having a cup of coffee in a cozy coffee shop Irene showed me the favorite places to shop. Irene believes that the style of every person is greatly influenced by the kind of music they listen to. She is a big fan of British music. Especially the old bands. This affected her choice of clothes a lot. Her favorite brands are Urban Outfitters, Weekday, Vagabond, that are very popular among Danish youth.
Weekday is a huge store with the conceptional interior design:

They have their own magazine that you can take for free in the shop :

In Weekday they sell their own collection

as well as collaborations with designers,

famous brands as Cheap Monday

and also vintage clothes

Monki is another shop of that kind, but with more colorful outfit on sale:

But probably the most desirable destination for each true fashionista is the Latin Quarter, where the best second hand and vintage stores are situated:

The atmosphere is magical in the streets here. Owing to the creative street art on the buildings everywhere here and the clothes that have unique history you feel as if you are in some other kind of world :)

Unfortunately, most of the shops were already closed when we got there, but I am definitely coming back there on Friday, which is actually the best day to go shopping in Copenhagen together with Saturday. On  Sunday everything is closed.

The shoes stores sell the adored by many fashion bloggers Jeffrey Campbells:

This was one of the best evenings in Copenhagen. I am so glad I met with  Irene as she is one of the nicest and kindest  people I've ever known and hoping to see her once again:)
