The Whole Who What Wear Team Wants to Dress Like This Scandi Influencer

Elinor Block

What do you get when you mix the style of the Olsen twins with the '70s and a touch of sass? Pernille Teisbaek, that's who. The Scandinavian stylist and street style favourite has been on our radars for what feels like forever, thanks to her incredible knack of nailing looks that everyone wants to wear. Her wardrobe is regularly discussed among the Who What Wear team and for good reason—she simply knows what's chic and is always seasons ahead of others in the trend stakes. She's also not afraid to change. Previously, she opted for denim separates and more colourful dresses but right now she's all about minimalism.

Today, her wardrobe is full of simple and elegant pieces by The RowBottega Veneta and that other brand-of-the-moment, Khaite. True, all of these brands fall at the top end of expensive but she's also known to wear H&M and Mango. While she's clearly a fan of a more muted palette, she isn't immune to the draw of a sequin shirt or a checked blazer either. None of her outfit formulas are new but it's the small details such as the addition of a pair of '70s-inspired sunglasses, a gold chain, or even simply tucking a jumper into her jeans that make all the difference.
