IMPROVED CASPULE WARDROBE MASTERCLASS LAUNCHING FALL 2022 – SIGN UP TO GET NOTIFIED

My favourite wardrobe staples and outfits in 2018.

A while back I asked you guys over on Instagram, if you would be interested in me doing kind of n outfits wrap-up post for this year. And you were rather hooked on that, so I thought it would be a fun way to wrap up the year in here. This will be the last post I publish before taking a nice, much-needed Christmas break. I’m not sure how active I’m gonna be on my social platforms during my break, but do swing by my Instagram if you have a little time because I’ll probably share a few everyday snippets over there. My brain really needs that break and I’m sure many of you guys feel the same.

It kind of feels like for every year that pass, I feel more and more comfortable with my style. I’m about to head into my 4th year with the capsule wardrobe system, but oddly it feels like I’ve been doing it forever. I’ve not been experimenting a whole lot with my style this year (in a good way), and when I look back at my style through the year there has been a good handful of clear favourite looks that I can’t wait to recreate in the new year. There are some great wardrobe staples and style preferences I’ve been digging this year, and I thought it would be fun to highlight these in today’s post.

Jeg spurgte jer for noget tid siden ovre på Instagram, om ikke det kunne være sjovt, at samle mine personlige favorit outfits fra året i et indlæg. Det var I rimelig hooked på, så jeg tænkte det var en god måde at afslutte året herinde på! Dette bliver nemlig det sidste indlæg jeg udgiver, inden jeg trækker stikket og går på juleferie. Jeg ved ikke hvor aktiv jeg bliver mellem jul og nytår, da min hjerne virkelig trænger til en god, lang pause (det tror jeg de fleste gør her sidst på året), men ellers så kommer jeg nok til at opdatere min Instagram en lille smule løbende.

Det er lidt som om, at for hvert år der går med capsule wardrobe systemet, så hviler jeg mere i min egen stil. Jeg går næste år ind i mit 4. capsule wardrobe år, selvom det faktisk føles som om jeg altid har fulgt disse principper. Der har ikke været de vilde udsving i min stil, og når jeg ser tilbage på min stil i løbet af året, så er der virkelig mange favoritter, som jeg glæder mig til at genskabe i det nye år. Der er nogle klare garderobe favoritter og stil præferencer jeg især har tyet til, og dem tænkte jeg, at jeg ville dykke lidt ned i i dette indlæg.

Blazers

This is probably really predictable since it’s something I mention rather often, but gosh I just love a good blazer. Most people probably do, but the type of outfits I feel most comfortable in just always includes some kind of blazer. There’s especially one blazer that I’ve been loving all through the year; my grey wool blazer from Everlane. I wear it several times a week, and I just love it. On the contrary we have my white pinstriped blazer, that I haven’t been using all that much this year. It’s a shame because it’s a great blazer, even though it’s definitely not new anymore. So last week I took it out of my wardrobe to have a closer look at it and to figure out WHY I don’t reach for it these days. Turns out the shoulders pads had kind of balled up inside it through time which made it look weird. So I took them out and now it looks amazing again! Especially can’t wait to wear it with light blue jeans, a white tee and white sneakers during spring.

Jeg ved det sikkert er vildt forudsigeligt eftersom jeg har nævnt det rigtig mange gange efterhånden, men jeg elsker blazerjakker. Det gør de fleste nok, men dén type outfits jeg føler mig bedst tilpas i inkluderer næsten altid en blazer. Der er især én blazer jeg har grebet meget ud efter i år; min grå uld blazer fra Everlane. Jeg bruger den flere gange ugentligt, og jeg elsker den. I den modsatte ende har vi min hvide, nålestribede blazer, som jeg virkelig ikke har fået brugt meget i år. Det er en skam, for den er stadig super fin, til trods for den har en del år på bagen. I sidste uge hev jeg den derfor ud af mit skab, for at finde ud af hvorfor, jeg ikke bruger den så meget længere. Det viste sig, at de skulderpuder der sad i den var blevet ”krøllet” sammen, og det så bare ikke pænt ud når man havde den på. Så nu har jeg pillet dem ud, og den ser SÅ fin ud nu! Jeg glæder mig især til, at bruge den med lyseblå jeans, en hvid t-shirt og hvide sneakers til foråret.

 

Light blue denim

I’m a sucker for denim, especially the light blue kind. That’s probably pretty clear when you look at these images, haha! Whether it’s a denim skirt or a pair of shorts during the summer, or just a pair of straight-leg jeans, light blue denim is my jam. Besides the light blue colour I’m also a huge fan of raw edges, which I think gives any outfit the perfect amount of contrast and edgyness. I especially love vintage Levi’s which I’ve been buying from Asos Marketplace the last few years and then usually I alter them myself, so that they fit my legs perfectly (see how I do just that in THIS video). I’ve also made my own denim skirt from a pair of old jeans. If you’re no master of the sewing machine thought there are alternatives. Re/done are probably the most hyped brand that alters secondhand Levi’s jeans into more modern fits, but you pay a rather high price for their Levi’s jeans. Urban Outfitters has their vintage range where I’ve often stumbled upon Levi’s jeans too – for example THESE. Besides that Everlane makes great, comfy jeans too and & Other Stories has a rather huge selection of jeans made in Organic Cotton. Denim is a huge sinner when it comes to pollution in the fashion industry, so there’s plenty of reasons to revise the way you consume denim, not only by choosing organic materials but also choosing a pair that you can love for years.

Jeg er tosset med denim, og især den lyseblå slags. Det ses nok tydeligt på billederne her, haha! Hvad enten det er i form af en nederdel eller et par afklippede shorts om sommeren, eller et par straight-leg jeans så er det helt klart en favorit. Foruden den lyseblå farve så er jeg også ret tosset med rå kanter, som skaber kontrast og giver lidt mere coolness til mine outfits. Jeg elsker vintage Levi’s som jeg oftest køber på Asos Marketplace og efterfølgende syer lidt ind ned langs benene (se hvordan jeg gør det HER). Jeg har også syet min egen denim nederdel ud af et par gamle jeans. Hvis ikke du er ferm med en symaskine, så er der dog alternativer. Re/done er specialister i at sy gamle Levi’s jeans om til mere moderne fits, men du betaler dog også en rimelig høj pris for det. Ellers har Urban Outfitters deres vintage kollektioner, hvor jeg også ofte er stødt på Levi’s jeans – fx DISSE. Udover det laver Everlane virkelig lækre, behagelige jeans og & Other Stories har et ret stort udvalg af jeans i økologisk bomuld. Denim er én af de helt store miljømæssige syndere i modeindustrien, så derfor er der god grund til ikke blot at vælge jeans der holder længe, men også jeans der er fremstillet med omtanke for miljøet.

 

Ankle boots

My favourite boots are my Acne Jensen boots. I bought them secondhand on trendsales years ago, and I just had them fixed at my local cobbler’s recently so now they are like new again. I highly recommend that! I can use them for years to come still. I wear them with anything and for any occasion, and I especially enjoyed wearing them with dresses and shorts over the summer. It gives such a cool, festival-chic kind of look when you pair your ankle boots with bare legs, and I love it. This particular model took some time to break in, so if you’re in between 2 sizes I do recommend that you go for the larger size. Then you can always put in an extra insole to make them fit more snug around your foot. I’m in any case not over black ankle boots, and I probably never will be!

Mine favoritstøvler i år har været mine Acne Jensen støvler. Jeg købte dem i sin tid brugt på Trendsales, og har netop fået dem shinet op ved min lokale skomager. Det kan altså stærkt anbefales! De ser simpelthen ud som nye, og har masser af gode år i dem endnu. Jeg bruger dem til ALT, og jeg var især vild med, at sætte dem sammen med kjoler og shorts i sommers. Det giver et cool sådan lidt festival-agtigt look når de bliver sat sammen med bare ben, og jeg elsker det. Lige netop denne model har taget lidt tid at gå til, så hvis du svinger mellem 2 størrelse vil jeg nok anbefale dig, at gå en størrelse op. Så kan du altid putte en indersål i, hvis de giver sig mere end forventet. I hvert fald så er jeg langt fra færdig med sorte ankelstøvler, og jeg bliver det nok heller aldrig!

 

A pop of colour

I don’t wear a lot of colours, and I probably never will. But I do like adding a pop of colour to my wardrobe from season to season – just to give my basics a breath of fresh air. I try to go for timeless colours like brown and army during autumn/winter, and then in the summertime I tend to go for timeless pastels or a bright red. I still have people coming up to me both in person and via my social platforms wondering why I don’t wear more colours, even almost demanding me to sometimes. But what can I say – I know myself well enough to know, that (believe it or not) colours bore me quicker than the monochromes. Most colours are often trend-based and designed to “die out” at some point, whereas the monochromes will always be here. Besides I don’t miss that huge palette of colours in my wardrobe. I freaks me out more than it makes me happy, when I have too much to choose from!

Jeg går ikke i mange farver, og jeg kommer nok heller aldrig til det. Men jeg kan godt lide at tilføje en enkel farve eller to til mine capsules fra sæson til sæson – bare for at pifte min farveløse, helårs-basis garderobe lidt op. Jeg gør en dyd ud af at vælge klassiske farver; fx er brun og army klassisk for efterårs- og vintersæsonen, og forår/sommer er det oftest bløde pasteller eller en klassisk rød farve, som jeg går efter. Jeg får stadig henvendelser fra folk der undrer sig over hvorfor jeg er så farve-forskrækket, eller ligefrem efterlyser at jeg tilføjer flere farver til min garderobe. Men jeg kender mig selv godt nok til at vide, at farver hurtigt keder mig (tro det eller ej!) og jeg bliver hurtigere træt af en bestemt farve, end en hvid, sort eller grå. De er der ligesom bare altid, hvor mange farver jo er mere trend-baserede og nærmest designet til, at blive erstattet af andre farver næste sæson. Og desuden så savner jeg slet ikke en kæmpe farvepalette. Det stresser mig faktisk hvis jeg har for meget at vælge imellem!

2018 has been one crazy year – but most of all I’m so thankful for everything that has happened this year. Read more about what that is HERE, HERE and HERE. I feel so privileged to be able to do what I love most for a living, and even – most of the time – on my very own terms. I’m so excited to see what 2019 has to offer, but I’m also gonna work on being more present in the moment. I don’t know how long I will be able to keep working under these amazing, free circumstances I do now, so I’m gonna do my best to enjoy every second of it. 

I also want to wrap up this year by saying thank you to all of you guys for your support, your positive, fun and empowering comments on my social platforms each and every day. I’m so happy and proud of this community that we have truly build together, and I hope to have you around for years to come. I wish you all the most wonderful Christmas wherever you are in the world and whether celebrate it or not – I will see you next year! 

2018 har været et crazy år – men mest af alt, så er jeg virkelig taknemmelig for alle de ting der er sket. Det kan du læse mere om HER, HER og HER. Jeg føler mig privilegeret over at kunne leve af det, som jeg elsker allermest, og så endda – det meste af tiden – på mine egne primisser. Jeg er så spændt på hvad 2019 har at byde på, men jeg vil også arbejde på, at være lidt mere tilstede i nuet. Jeg aner ikke hvor længe jeg kan blive ved med at arbejde under de her frie omstændigheder, men lige nu nyder jeg det i fulde drag.

Vanen tro så vil jeg gerne slutte af med at sige tak for jeres evindelige støtte, gode humør og sjove, opløftende kommentarer på mine sociale platforme. Jeg er inderligt stolt og glad for det community som jeg føler vi sammen har bygget op, og jeg håber I har lyst til at følge med i mange år endnu. I må have en skøn jul og et dejligt nytår hvorend i verden i befinder jer og uanset hvordan i fejrer det – vi ses i det nye år!

X Signe

    I agree with you about colors, I try a color and quickly get bored with it and I am just much more comfortable in neutrals, and it is very calming to look into my closet and see neutrals, plus it’s a lot easier for me to pick an outfit when I’m not trying to force myself to use a color. Thank you for all you do, you have helped me so much with my wardrobe and you are delightful to watch. I’ll be here when you are ready to post more videos next year. Enjoy your time off.

    Frohe Weihnachten and a good start into 2019. Looking forward to another year with your Blog. It inspired me to have a good clear out of my Wardrobe after moving about for 14 Years. Its still a way to go but I’m on the right track and with your inspirations its easy.

    Good on you for knowing your style and sticking to it.

    The last Vlogmas for this year was also so inspiring. De-cluttering seems to fit with the end of the year perfectly… fresh starts etc. I’m not really sure why, but I love seeing all those half-empty drawers with all that amazing storage space you have there.

    Take it easy and get well soon!
