Wardrobe Insider – Ellen Claesson

ellen2Describe your style? My style is very Scandinavian, minimalistic, and casual. For me quality is better than quantity, therefore I’m thinking more about buying pieces that are more timeless and will therefore last longer in my wardrobe. What are your three favourite items? I cannot live without a shirt, a knit and my Stan Smiths. These are definitely three key items in my wardrobe. Every season I buy a new knit from Acne Studios, my favourite brand when it comes to knitwear. Tell me your typical daily look? At the moment I want to wear straight jeans, a slim knit, blazer and sneakers. Very simple and comfortable. When you are out and about as much as I am, this combination works best on all occasions. And when I feel like going out, I just change from sneakers to a pair of stilettos. Wardrobe Insider - Ellen Claesson What inspires you? Mostly street style! I think it is super-cool that we can share and get inspired by each other. Maybe it is just a detail or a colour that gives you the inspiration to make your own look. But I still love to browse through magazines for sure. I truly hope this lasts! What item will always stay in your wardrobe? Again, the shirt! I don’t know how many shirts I have in my wardrobe. The white one I want in as many shapes and materials as possible, because it is so useful. Please pick two things that you would like to purchase this fall? When autumn begins I always get in the mood to shop. I’m a sucker for jackets, and right now I am looking for the perfect long black wool coat. Then, of course, there are ankle boots. This season, Chloé has made my dream pair, one of this autumn’s must-haves! Chloé boots from Holly Golightly
