Notes from a Swedish stylist


How do you guys feel about dressing up for parties? Back in the days, I would find myself having lots of anxiety before a big party.
Since I’m not really a person that’s into big statement pieces – even though I love it on others – I’ve realized that ‘less is more’ is my truth, and fighting it would just be stupid.

I also don’t like to plan ahead when it comes to outfits. I need to be able to go for something that fits my mood of the day, of else I will be super uncomfortable. That’s why I have three go-to party looks that I always return to:

The Mukan dress

Last Christmas I wore this beautiful The Row dress that I found on Vestiaire Collective, which had been a long-time dream of mine. This year I’m thinking of wearing it for New Year’s, when we’ll be having a quiet dinner with friends at our house.

The velvet dress

This is a dress that I got from a small designer I London six years ago after seeing it on Cara Delevingne in W Magazine, and I just knew that it would be a piece that I would love forever. It reminds me of something that Anita Pallenberg could have worn in the late ’60s.

The jumpsuit

This is my go-to event outfit (pictured above). I got it six years ago, and can honestly say that it’s one of my best buys of all time. I love it on its own, it’s also great paired with a blazer.

What is your go-to look for the holidays?
