Copenhagen Cycle Chic Girl

There’s no question of talking about Danish style or fashion without talking about the bikes and how much it’s important in our daily lives. Bikes and cycling are part of life here and everyone does it, no matter who, even the Royal family. The royals here have just normal life like any other Dane. And normal life here means you have a bike and you use it every day!

Para meus leitores em portugues:

Nao se pode falar em estilo dinamarques ou moda sem mencionar as bicicletas e o quanto sao importantes em nossas vidas quotidianas. Bicicletas e pedalar fazem parte da vida aqui e todos aqui o fazem, nao importa quem seje, ate’ mesmo a familia real. A realeza aqui levam uma vida normal como qualquer outro cidadao. E vida normal aqui significa que voce tem uma bike e voce a usa todos os dias!

You are free and you do basically everything and go everywhere with it. Copenhagen has the best and most efficient cycling system in the world. It’s nice, safe, it works just fine! You just have to learn a few rules and you are ready to go. So, it’s not unusual to see very elegant people dressed up even for gala parties going with their bikes to the event… just amazing! Ladies wearing their high heels to go to work or anywhere they want to to. That’s the freedom of being in Copenhagen!

Typical copenhagen style girl with total black and black bike For today’s fashion theme, I chose the typical and timeless Copenhagen look: you will never go wrong and the Copenhagen Girls love it! It has to be black, no problem! It’s beautiful, chic, and edgie. You have to make it edgie, otherwise it’s not Copenhagen style.

Para o tema fashion de hoje, escolhi o tipico e sem tempo Copenhagen look: voce nunca ira’ errar e as Copenhagen Girls amam! Tem que ser preto, sem problemas! E’ bonito, chic, e claro descolado. Voce tem que faze-lo descolado, senao nao e’ Copenhagen style.

Typical copenhagen style girl with total black and black bikeSince it’s still chilly in Copenhagen, we all still have to wear tights and jacket. So, to break the seriousness of the skirt, brake it with a leather jacket and of course, the top most loved Copenhagen pattern, the stripes!!!!This t-shirt is special because has beautiful lace on the upper top and gives this romantic transparency touch. Hand made cashmere scarf and little heels. Ready to go anywhere.

Aqui ainda esta frio, entao temos ainda que usar meias bem grossas e jacketa. Entao para quebrar a seriedade da saia, quebre com uma jacketa de couro e claro, o mais amado dos amados motivos de Copenhagen, as listras!!!! Essa camiseta e’ especial porque tem uma renda linda na parte de cima e da um ar romantico com a transparencia. O cachecol e’ feito a mao e de cashmere. Ta pronta pra ir a qualquer lugar.

Typical copenhagen style girl with total black and black bike with vintage bagOf course, you cannot have a complete Copenhagen Cycle Girl without a vintage cross body bag. Not possible. It’s an statement and I agree with that. They are lovely and complete the look. This one I obviously got in a trendy vintage shop called Episode, in the cool area of the Latin Quarters in downtown Copenhagen.

Claro, voce nao pode ter um look Copenhagen Cycle Girl sem a bolsinha tira colo vintage. Nao e’ possivel. E’ uma lei e eu concordo com ela. Ela e’ linda e completa o look. Essa daqui eu comprei em uma loja super trendy vintage chamada Episode, numa area super badalada do Latin Quarters no centro de Copenhagen.Copenhagen look girl in total black look with black bike and vintage bagHope you liked this post just the way I liked doing it.

      Dear Camila,
      Good to see you here!!!!
      Yes, Copenhagen is also rainy, you are right! I’ll sure make a post with tips how to bike and still look beautiful under the rain. I always bike despite the rain to go to work and school. I love the Nordic style rain coats and of course the top stylish Hunter boots.
      Thank you so much for the suggestion. Next post!!!
      See you soon sweet pie!
