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.
Greetje from No Fear of Fashion. Loving this simple chic outfit where accessories are key.
I met this lady in a shop and I love her unique look. Also note her fabulous asymmetric haircut!
Greetje again who rocks skinnies like no other.
No outfit picture from me of that day but I do have a photo of my fabulous new shoes from Papucei!
My friend Anja who loves to combine her jeans with prints.
My new asymmetric dress that you glimpsed at in my South America article. Looks even better with heels.
Enjoying hot chocolate and cream at a terrace in Haarlem wearing my silk thrifted blouse and In Good Company necklace.
Layers are key in The Netherlands so I often wear jackets. Note another pair of new comfy shoes from Papucei!
A little more unusual style, but I though these pants were so unique and she wore them well.
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.
Here is another image of that look with bright scarf.
Greetje is looking so good with this lime green coat and denim skinnies.
Relaxing on a lovely summer day with white 7/8 pants and my Stella Carakasi tunic and cropped top.
My Paige jeans with a thrifted flower patterned blazer and Antelope booties.
Finally, Anja goes for full denim and blue booties (she changed them to proper tango shoes later) for a night of tango.
What do you think of the relaxed and comfortable Dutch style and which of these outfits is your favorite?
