Stockholm is a wonderful city for shopping. You can stroll down Drottninggatan to see an H&M on every corner, along with Åhlens, one of Sweden’s major department stores. If you’re looking for something more ‘hipster’, Södermalm has a Shoreditch vibe and is the best destination for vintage. And finally Biblioteksgatan is a long stretch of glamourous designers with a charming red carpet at Christmas, where these photos were taken.
It’s easy to spend a whole day walking around the main island and use the cold weather as an excuse to buy new clothes. Which brings me to the newsboy hat. I’ve seen them emerging in stores and online for a year or so, and decided the icey Swedish wind was the final cue to take the plunge. Besides, who doesn’t want to look like Keira Knightley in Love Actually?
