Copenhagen fashion shops for a student budget

Loving Scandinavian fashion but not the charge? Worry not. Here is our guide to trendy shops with prices that won't send you into bankruptcy

Copenhagen, a capital covered in the newest and most fashionable clothes from all over the world. You have all the big names like Prada, Gucci, Armani, Moschino, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs. Then you have the Scandinavian brands like Bruuns Bazar, DAY Birger et Mikkelsen, Filippa K and Malene Birger. We can all agree they make great clothes. But most of these will rip your wallet apart.

Stay calm – there’s hope. With a little bit of planning, you can still exhibit the latest trends when slurping your ginger juice/mocca frappè/grape cider from your favorite cafè/park/club.

First of all, stay away from the main street Strøget in the city centre and do your primary shopping at the small streets around the neighborhoods, such as Nørrebro and Vesterbro, or simply follow our guide.

1. Weekday

A hipster shop for both men and women. This is the place many Danes find their over-sized cardigans, neon plateaus or bordeaux barrettes. The style varies as well as the brands and prices, but there will be some really cheap scoops no matter what.
