Berlin is the style capital of edgy fashion, where the colour of choice is black, and the hipster scene rules supreme. Now that Berlin Fashion Week (4th – 7th July) has come to a close, with its usual semi- political undertones, sustainable fashion, world issue conscientious style and freedom of speech promoting attire, here’s a breakdown of some of the more noteworthy street styles & runway looks.
Read on for some fashion inspiration, with an edge.
Bring on the coloured gingham, and checks to match.
Too much print? We think not.
A chunky chained clutch finishes off the look.
Accessories are kept to a minimum, as the prints are so bold.
Sleek black sunnies or a classic pair of Ray-Ban specs with metallic and tortoiseshell details, it all works.
Clean cut is key here.
All black everything, when in doubt, wear black.
All down to your accessories, like the G-Star sunglasses below.
Mix casual pieces with more put together chic attire for the perfect balance of “I woke up like this” and “I have 3 personal stylists.”
A little boho, a little grunge and a little uptown girl (or guy).
Add a little whimsy to a rainy day (a frequent occurrence in Berlin), with a feathered detail maxi skirt paired with a knotted at the waist graphic tee, and an embroidered and studded leather jacket to keep the chill at bay, some zippered heels and a designer bag finish off the look.
Add a pair of pink-hued sunnies if the weather is brighter to pull it all together, don’t forget the signature beachy effortless tousled hair and a winning smile.
Tassel Earrings are the new it accessory for summer, worn here with a slogan T-shirt tucked into a pair of classic khakis and a multi-coloured shag jacket to stay toasty.
A few chains in different lengths add to the boho edgy vibe, as do the numerous rings, and the centre part in her hair (beachy, tousled vibes are a recurring theme here).
Throw on the pair of specs below to add a preppy feel to the look, and to see the runway looks all the better.

Nothing says summer like bright-toned accessories, bright blue pumps, yellow tassel statement earrings, and a siren red lip.
Pair them together with classic pieces with a twist, like a pinstriped navy shirt with pocket detail and turned up sleeves tucked into a high waisted ribboned maxi skirt.
A cross body designer bag and sunnies in neutral colours bring it all together.
Side swept retro waves are the hairstyle of choice.
Bringing edgy back in a nude colour block bodysuit, with a cropped, striped sweater, cut off moto gloves, a mini bun, contrast clog-like shoes and last but not least, peekaboo sunnies, like these Chopards below.
