While most don’t look forward to the end of the summer, at least there is Copenhagen Fashion Week street style to raise the spirits this month. Outside the shows and at after-parties, the Scandinavian streets are filled with every style trope, from the ultra daring to the ever so understated. Photos from the week serve as the perfect fashionable antidote to all those vacation snaps filling up your Instagram. Here, it’s less dreamy holiday dresses and more high-concept, individualist takes on warm-weather dressing. Plus, you can expect this group of showgoers to set the tone before the rest of fashion month begins—be it the crowning of the season’s new It accessory or a lesson on how to wear the latest trends. Let this edit of style setters act as your outfit inspiration and shopping guide for the upcoming season.

Two denim trends collide as one. A baggy low-rise silhouette and vintage tee are the epitome of an off-duty look.
