SCANDI IT GIRL: ZARA ESSENTIALS

The It Girl Guide

hello world!
@matildadjerf

This new rise of it-girls is so classic and put together and I love it. They represent a girl from Stockholm with perfectly blown-out hair who loves daddy’s credit card. Picture blue jeans, white baby tee, oversized sweater in one hand, and your Birkin in the other. Honestly wish I were them. 

However achieving this style is minimal and effortless, yet still carefully crafted and you need an eye for the right pieces. It’s also how you wear the clothes, so go in with the mindset that you are this it-girl. Looser dark wash pants and a white top is a great staple outfit and you can mix and match to your heart’s desire.

If you are over that super colorful and funky style and looking to evolve to a more chic and classic look, this is the place to start. But I know what you are thinking. You have nothing of this sort because you have been so caught up in micro trends that your entire closet looks like Shein’s warehouse. Gross. 

But I like to think of this trend as a little more than a micro trend because of its timeless nature. Like yes, maybe this basic off-duty look will be out of style next season and fishnets and fur will be all the rave, but you literally can’t go wrong with these closet staples that this style requires. Like if you are about to tell me that a white t-shirt is so last season I’m literally shredding your clothes. Like shut up and let people be.

But on that note, this style isn’t for everyone. You might think of this as too boring or not colorful enough, in that case just take it with a grain of salt. These clothing pieces are still great closet staples that you can’t really go wrong with. However, they also perfectly fit that Stockholm it-girl look, so if that’s the vibe you are looking for, look no further.

ZW THE LUNA STRAIGHT JEANS

Everyone needs a great pair of jeans and I love the look these looser pair of jeans give. It’s a very effortless yet chic look and is the perfect staple for all of your outfits. Scandi it-girls always have the perfect pair of blue jeans, and this pair isn’t too far from that. 

SLEEVELESS KNIT TOP

This white top has the perfect balance between a slouchy knit and a shaped shirt that screams Stockholm. Originally I have a different ribbed top here but Zara got rid of it and right before I could buy it. Rude?!? However, if they add it back I will make sure to do a quick switch-a-roo for ya.

KNIT SWEATER

Okay but I love this sweater. It’s the perfect shade of creamy white and would pair perfectly with any of the pants I’ve put in this article. Plus it could be easily layered or thrown around your next or dressed up or down. The possibilities are quite endless, making this a lovely scandi it-girl staple.

FULL LENGTH PANTS

First of all, never wear these pants with a belt. I don’t know who styled that but it obviously wasn’t me. So don’t do that. Instead, keep these classic pants low and baggy and pair with literally any of the shirts in this article. See that’s the great thing. You can purchase all of these items and mix and match literally all of them. These it-girls are on to something.

SYNTHETIC LEATHER BOMBER JACKET

A little less of a classic and more of a Stockholm staple. This jacket is ready to be perfectly styled in yet again, anything in this article. This jacket definitely steps up your scandi it-girl closet. Feeling chilly, just throw this bomber on!

SOFT OVERSIZED COAT

Um, yes?!?! Like need, I say more? Everything about this coat is amazing and while it might be giving more Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, I don’t see that as a problem.

OVERSIZED SATIN EFFECT SHIRT

Very much Matilda Djerf, and we all know she is the ultimate Scandinavian it-girl. Love her to death. So of course, this shirt must be a staple. I mean you can’t disrespect the queen.

WIDE LEG MENSWEAR STYLE PANTS

If you weren’t feeling the darker pants, I might suggest these. But what I suggest even more is both. Oops, I’m projecting my spending habits onto you. Sorry, but you deserve it! A closet doesn’t grow itself! Unless you know a guy… and in that case hook a sister up.

OVERSIZED POLO COLLAR KNIT SWEATER

Screaming.

WASHED SHORT SLEEVE T-SHIRT

Remember that white t-shirt I wouldn’t shut up about? Well, here you have it. Tuck it in, wear it loose, whatever floats your boat. I would suggest wearing these with those blue jeans before anything else. Throw on a pair of low Uggs and one of the jackets above and you’ve got the perfect Stockholm look. Someone get this girl a plane flight!

RIBBED T-SHIRT

For those summer days or just when you want to switch it up, a tank top will never do you wrong. This one has a really flowy slouched look which I’m always looking for in a tank top. It makes everyone’s boobs look amazing.

DOUBLE SEAM TOTE BAG

We have now entered the bag stage. Throw a book in here and take a walk to the nearest coffee shop. Big bags are for sure coming back and this one has just enough flare while still keeping in minimal and classic.

TOTE BAG

The perfect slouchy bag to go with any of your scandi it-girl outfits. It’s minimal yet very functional and would look perfect for this new style we are trying out.

CITY BAG

I freaking love this bag.

And that’s a wrap! I can’t wait to see your new wardrobe and feel free to mix and match with what you already own or pieces that you just can’t live without. If you are looking for a little color just pop on a green cardigan with your jeans and t-shirt. Now shop till you drop and go live out your scandi it-girl dreams.
