Most fabulous shopping destinations in Europe
European fashion is known for being the most glamorous and fashion-forward in the world. While ‘European style’ is often grouped together, each destination even has its own style and flare so you can still feel that European style but with a unique spin.
Here are some of the best places to shop in Europe:
The capital of France is a shopper’s heaven for Parisian style. Parisians are known as being some of the most stylish in the world, and you can find pieces here that give you that confidence boost and help you get a little bit of that ‘je ne sais quoi’ through fashion that Parisians naturally have. The hub of fashion in the city is Faubourg Saint-Honoré, a must for a fashion-lover visiting Paris.
One good tip to remember is to plan your trip in advance so that you can visit as many cities as possible in a short period of time. With Bookmundi you can find a European tour package that includes a few of the cities listed and keep your traveling expenses on the low side.
2. Florence and Milan
Italian fashion is known all around the world for its seemingly effortless yet always stylish flare. Milan is the fashion capital of Italy, with luxury fashion being the best to find here. For leather goods, head down to Florence where its quality and history of creating the most beautiful leather pieces is unparalleled.
If you want to shop Italian fashion but can’t quite get to Italy, you can shop for some always essential handbags from websites such as Mirta for 100% Made in Italy handbags from artisans. You will never see an Italian woman without a beautiful bag draped on her arm!
Copenhagen is known for its street style. Popular brands that are well-known at Danish Fashion Week are Ganni, Saks Potts, and Stine Goya. The fashion here focuses on individualism and finding your own personal style, rather than the designers and logos behind the pieces.
Many Swedish brands are into sustainability and Swedish minimalism. It is a city that is known for setting trends and carving its own way in terms of fashion. If you like classic pieces that you will love for years to come and that focus on the person wearing the items than the items themselves, checking out fashion based out of Stockholm is a must. A few brands to keep an eye on are Filippa K for minimalistic but beautiful pieces, sustainable House of Dagmar, and jewelery brand All Blues.
If you love denim, boutique shops, and sustainable fashion, Amsterdam is the place to go. This city has the highest number of denim brands, including Levi’s and local Kuyichi. In true representation of the Dutch approach to leaving a smaller environmental footprint, many brands and elements being taught at fashion school is ‘fashion with a sustainable spin’.
Each of these cities has a different aesthetic and vibe that’s waiting to be discovered. Try mixing pieces from different cities for something super unique and that suits your own fashionable and artistic expression.
