The Swedish Jean

I don't know what it is about Swedish fashion right now. It seems like EVERYTHING exciting is pouring out of that country. They know style, and they're not afraid to be different. So now is your chance to catch on to the Swedish fashion craze, starting with your jeans.

Three hot labels come from the land of the blonde: ACNE Jeans, Filippa K, and Nudie Jeans. Although they've been in existence since the 90s, they are just gaining momentum in the US now. Acne and Nudie offer you unique but simple denim, and Filippa K can help round out the look.

Here's how to wear it:

Make a Small Change: Roll the bottoms of your Nudie jeans so they hit right above your ankles; sort of that Thom Brown look without the suit. Top it with a Filippa K white button up t-shirt (go ahead leave it untucked just this once) and pair it with boots by Acne. If you forgo the button-up shirt, opt for a t-shirt paired with a long trench instead.

Here are the pieces to make it happen:

Not Swedish, but another great option. Theory Trench.
