I’ve been doing some sartorial sightseeing via the Stockholm Street Style channel on YouTube. It feels like armchair travelling with a focus on fashion. I love that I can catch glimpses of the city while at the same time getting outfit inspiration from people of all ages. Right now, the focus is on Winter wear, as it’s still cold in Sweden. This one shows what people are wearing when temps are around freezing point, so lots of coat inspiration and also plenty of fun stompy flat boots. The floral coat at the beginning of this one is a work of art! You can also watch store tours that show collections for the upcoming seasons, like the Spring 2023 collection at & Other Stories, and the new collection at Arket; a store that also sells great decor items if you like Scandinavian Modern design.

With the Oscars around the corner, Angie enjoyed scrolling through these forgotten photos from vintage Oscar nights. Her favourite look was Michelle Williams in a mango dress in 2006. But there are lots of iconic looks you will remember. Outfits were more daring decades ago it seems. Angie votes to bring back the playful drama!
