Style inspiration can be hard to come by in August, when the air is thick with humidity and even the most stylish women resort to breezy dresses or cutoffs to beat the heat. Fortunately, we can look to Copenhagen Fashion Week to lift our sartorial spirits in the dog days of summer. It’s extra-warm in the Danish capital right now, so we’ve already seen a few girls in shorts, while several others are choosing easy, one-and-done printed dresses. More surprising is the amount of plaid—picnic-blanket dresses, tie-dyed plaid blouses, and even a plaid slip. Maybe it’s the new gingham? Style du Monde photographer Acielle is on the ground capturing all of the best looks, and New Yorkers should bookmark their favorites now; our own Fashion Week is just a month away.
