Great thread. Very few hot messes.

I wonder, for people familiar with Scandinavian countries, is there really a similar style found in each of them? And how representative are the pics in this thread of people in Scandinavia?

I would say it's pretty representative... Just a little toned down. At least in my age group. People are interested in fashion and stuff because of blogs. Blogging is very popular.

Yeah, blogging is a big deal, even in Finland. I dont really know about the other countries other than Finland and Sweden, but I'd say those two are like night and day...it's always so different to go to Stockholm where people are more courageous to do something different with clothes and fashion. But overall from what I've seen, Swedes impress me the most.

I'd also say it's pretty representative.

Having travelled to all Scandinavian countries except for Finland and having lived in 2 of them, Sweden & Iceland, I must say that people put more effort in their streetlooks (as in creativity / individuality) rather than in other countries imo.

What I like best about Sweden is that these individual styles are not only found in the bigger cities but also on the country. Maybe not quite as eccentric as in Stockholm but still much more so than in f.ex. rural parts of Germany.

Icelandic styles differs a bit from the common "Scandinavian style". Highschools are very americanized with the typical preppy wear / A&F hoodies and such. There is a strong alternative scene as well that dresses similar to the Swedish one but I think most people that you meet while going out are extremely elegant / chic. A Dutch friend of mine said while visiting me in Reykjavík, that the city is full of blonde Blair Walldorfs. I think that's a compliment

I always love going back to Scandinavia cause you are much more free to dress and experiment with your clothing than in other places in the world. And if you look like a total idiot - you still get fotographed for a style blog :p

Well said! And I totally agree with the last thing you said, I was once wearing something that I just threw on and of course then I got photographed by some blogger or whatever As I said before, blogs are a big thing...

New pics from HEL LOOKS These are taken from Flow Festival (also referred as the "finnish fashion week" not because there are fashion shows but because people dress up to go there)

Scandinavian streetstyle blogs blow my mind. A large swath of the population seems to put a lot of thought and effort into creating a defining look. I wonder what it is about Scandinavian culture that encourages such a high level of outward self expression?
