beauty . fashion . bikes *copenhagen*
I loved watching the women in Copenhagen as they silently glided past on their bikes. They are truly beautiful, natural, elegant and ever fashionable. From Copenhagen Cycle Chic, I know that some will wear heels while riding, but the ones that stood out to me were those who dressed in a way that inspired me in my practical needs for walking. Flat loafers/sandals/boots, dresses or loose pants with singlets/shirts, denim/leather jackets and cardigans and long hair flowing out behind them. They renewed my enthusiasm for my denim jacket that has almost been purged so many times. While they looked current and fashionable, there was still a sense of timelessness about their clothes. I also noted they didn’t wear many bright colours or loud patterns, but rather neutral tones of black, denim blue, olive, dusty pink, red, brown, white and cream. Shoes were often of quality material too. The men looked pretty fabulous as well, again with timeless styles and neutral tones. Fashion didn’t disappear with age, either. I have a photo of the most spectacularly beautiful grey haired lady who rode into a shot. She has a silk scarf around her neck and healthy complexion and complimentary colours in her classic outfit.
I left Copenhagen filled with inspiration for my own walking wardrobe. And the couple riding holding hands… well they were just adorable.
