Fashion Diary March 2019
They say that you should dress for your mood. Well, instead of feeling blue, we suggest wearing blue! If you are feeling a bit stressed and down, the colour blue can actually help you feel more relaxed and calm. Many of us need a bit of help during the colder and darker times of the year, so here are some of our blue picks to steer you in the right direction.
We adore this light-blue, menswear-inspired, front-buttoned shirt in an oversized fit from Sand Copenhagen. Made in pure silk satin with stretch for extra comfort, it looks both stylish and relaxed. Team it up with a pair of these cropped, straight-leg linen trousers with a self-tie belt and blue heels for a classy and sophisticated look.

Look casual and cool in this outfit from Arket this season. The knitted wool vest in dark blue offers good insulation with its light-padded quilted lining. It looks great layered on top of this striped fine-knit jumper, which is inspired by old sailor’s garments.

Decadent, ‘Madelyn’ clutch bag, approx £328 (left image) Norlender, ‘Vega’ sweater, £151.33 (right image)
This small clutch with double chain in dove blue from Danish brand Decadent is perfect for everyday use as well as for going out. Inside the bag are a compartment and a small side-pocket for all your daily essentials. The chain can be used as a long cross-over or you can make it double and wear it over the shoulder.
Vega is a classical crew neck jumper with a design reminiscent of the pullovers popular in Norway in the early 19th century. At that time, hand-knitted sweaters like this were the main garments worn during the cold season. With Vega, Norlender wishes to revisit memories of the Norwegian heritage and craftsmanship.

On a cold and miserable day, what better way to feel good than to wrap up in a large and cosy scarf? This Claudine scarf from By Marlene Birger is woven with a bucket list of must-see travel destinations to make you dream of holidays and fun. Layer the rectangular piece over your shoulders or wear it looped around your neck.
This classic watch strap from Swedish fashion brand Sibirien Stockholm will add that little extra to your outfit. It is handmade with beautiful Scandinavian salmon leather and lined with incredibly high-quality French calf skin by Daniel Ankarstrand.

Designed with a fitted top and a fluid skirt silhouette, this long-sleeved dress from Arket is cut from a super soft twill weave made from a blend of cotton and linen – the perfect item to see you into springtime and beyond.
Checks is a pattern we cannot get enough of, so make sure you stay on trend with these elegant slim-fit suit trousers in dark navy blue from Selected Homme. With added stretch for free range of motion, they are classic and smart but still comfortable. Style tip: wear them with a leather jacket for an edgy, less polished look.
