Here’s what went down at Copenhagen Fashion Week

It’s a city known for its colourful, creative approach to clothes, and this week Copenhagen’s biannual fashion week delivered fun, free-spirited fashion in full force.

Some pieces on this list were easy to settle on—like a new pair of bike shorts—while others were harder to pick, like whittling down which of the 40 summer frocks I’ve been lusting after are worth investing in. I knew I’d also want to throw in some bright statement accessories, but
