H&M – Scandi brand in Oslo
A trip to Oslo this week to discover the shopping scene proved hard in outfit planning, as the transition month of spring couldn’t promise any sort of weather. Inspired by the very reasonably priced H&M (of Sweden), the following ensemble emerged.
Scandinavian fashion, particularly the way in which the women dress in Norway is very easy and effortless. Women throw on coats and scarfs over leggings and boots / trainers, and they still manage to look put together.
As spring is approaching, I chose this pastel blue coat from H&M and paired it with a big scarf (also H&M) to try and imitate the easy dressing I have so often seen. As the weather was going to be on the chillier side, I mixed a bit of fur in to add an extra layer and dimension to the outfit.
As I was going for blue hues, I added a pair of turquoise mirrored sunglasses (H&M).
Of course I accessorised with my trusty Lily bag (Mulberry), which I found was a safe bet with its neutral colour and travel convenience.
H&M are currently offering a wide variety of these summer coats, in many colours. They are really versatile in that they can be thrown on as a cocktail coat or dressed down. And for the colder days this summer, try layering up like I did.
