As I’m in The Netherlands for part of the summer I’m surrounded by Dutch style.

What is Dutch style exactly?

It tends to be comfortable, relaxed, a little bit Euro chic and lots of denim.

It’s practical too as the climate can change several times in a day and you always need to be prepared for rain.

I always wear more jeans and skinnies when I’m in The Netherlands. It happens quite naturally as it’s just practical and you get influenced by all the other stylish ladies wearing jeans.

Here are a few impressions of Dutch style from both myself and my friends.

Travel outifit in the Netherlands: Layering with jackets and white comfy shoes | 40plusstyle.com

Layers are key in The Netherlands so I often wear jackets. Note another pair of new comfy shoes from Papucei!

Unique harlem drape pants | 40plusstyle.com

A little more unusual style, but I though these pants were so unique and she wore them well.

What I wore: modern 70's inspired outfit | 40plusstyle.com

The image is not so clear but you get a good idea of the outfit. It gives a hint to the 70s and these pants have a similar style to my Paige Jeans. These ones are by Lois.
