I don’t know about you, but Scandi style is all I can think about right now. The stylish women in Europe’s northern capitals like Oslo, Stockholm, and Copenhagen seem to possess a certain effortlessly cool polish that the internet (and this editor) can’t get enough of. Thanks to the popularity of influencers like Matilda Djerf and Pernille Teisbaek, their particular brand of elevated minimalism is inspiring droves of outfit re-creations by us Americans.
As someone who studies Scandi style like it’s my job (well, it sort of is), I thought it would be fun to put myself in their shoes for the day and imagine the types of things that would fill their carts on a shopping trip to an American standby, Nordstrom. Although the beloved retailer that’s the topic of much of our conversations here doesn’t have any doors in Europe at the moment, plenty of popular Scandi staples are casually sitting on its site as we speak.
Behold—the ultimate guide to shopping our favorite retailer like a true Scandi fashion person, from the items they’d be buying to what they’d politely skip.
