What I Wore In Copenhagen | Ad

Gallery of Besma's outfits from Copenhagen

I’m back from Copenhagen! I can’t believe how quickly Global Fashion Summit flew by. My notes app is a mess, my camera roll is full, and so I wanted start by sharing with you what I wore for the event! I have to say a massive thank you to Organic Basics for working with me to dress me – their clothes have been a staple in my wardrobe for more than five years now, and as a sustainable fashion brand hailing from Denmark, it was a perfect fit.

If you’re not familiar with Organic Basics, they design some of the best underwear, activewear and wardrobe essentials around. They use ethical labour and sustainable fabrics like organic cotton, tencel, and recycled fibres. I can vouch for their comfort and longevity – take my pair of Organic Basics leggings. These have been worn tens – if not hundreds – of times, and they’re still going strong!

Day 1

The Ultimate Travel Outfit

Outfit details: Organic Basics True Knit Sweater, Organic Basics True Knit Wide Leg Pants, Samsøe Samsøe Trench Coat, Black Tulip Sneakers

I like to think I’m a good traveller – I’m pretty well organised, I can be on-time (when I want to be), and I can think on my feet. Having travelled solo for past holidays and work trips, I’ve learned how to pack light and dress for comfort. To that end, this ensemble is my ultimate travel outfit to date. The flat-knit two-piece sweater and pants made with GOTS-certified organic cotton are comfortable, breathable, and can be layered up or down. My trusty linen trench coat is a great for wrapping up without being too warm. And my sneakers are light and comfortable. I actually looked forward to travelling in this outfit, as I knew I would be comfortable and still feel chic when arriving in Copenhagen!

Opening Night Outfit

Outfit details: Silk Maxi Dress found on Thrift+, GANNI Wrap Blazer, Cowboy Boots found on Vinted, Organic Basics Core Stripe Crew Socks

Once I’d arrived in Copenhagen, I took the metro to my hotel and freshened up. Even from my brief walk to the hotel, I could already tell Copenhagen has some great street style. I’ll be honest – I didn’t think I could compete with crochet balaclavas or oodles of shearling, so I put together an outfit that felt confident and fun. I love bold silhouettes and tailoring, so I paired my silk maxi dress with my favourite black blazer, and added a pair of cowboy boots for a hint of saloon. The trick with this outfit is its comfort – the crew socks kept my feet cushioned all night long!

Day 2

If I Was A Personal Stylist…

Outfit details: Organic Basics Flex Tee, Angelika Jozefczyk Wide-Leg Suit Pants*, Isabel Marant Lecce Belt, A. Emery Prince Sandals, Monarc Jewellery Hoop & Ball Earrings, Lescarf Woman Life Freedom Scarf

…This would be my uniform! For the first full day at Global Fashion Summit, I went in a customary all-black outfit. Look, black is my power colour. My one rule with wearing black is that the outfit itself needs to be interesting in other ways – be it the silhouette, textures, or fit. I love how form-fitting the Organic Basics Flex Tee is, and it balances so well with my wide-leg pants. I actually had these trousers tailored to fit my 5’5″ frame, so they just caress the floor when I wear flats, or hover slightly in heels. Invest in a good tailor – I promise it’s worth it!

This day was my favourite day, with some incredible panels, and lots of connections with friends old and new. I also got to see some of Copenhagen in the evening, and visit a very nice restaurant – my full review will be coming soon!

Day 3

The Cream Dream (That Later Turned Into A Nightmare)

Outfit details: Marc O’Polo Knit Sweater, Silk Maxi Dress found on Thrift+, Organic Basics Smooth Underwear, Monica Vinader Nura Wrap Earrings, A. Emery Prince Sandals

On the final day of the summit, I wanted to wear something chic and comfortable. This outfit felt like the answer, but later came to regret it… Here, I re-wore my maxi dress, and layered it with a light jumper. The key to wearing this dress is to choose the right underwear, and Organic Basics does a great range of seamless pants and thongs.

On the second day of the Global Fashion Summit, people were definitely a little more low-key with their looks, and I saw lots of oversized shirts, jeans, and blazers. I went for this cream ensemble as it had been blazing sunshine on Day 1 – little did I know, the heavens would open up and I’d get soaked!

What I Wish I Wore

Outfit details: GANNI Wrap Blazer, Organic Basics Flex Bralet, Angelika Jozefczyk Wide-Leg Suit Pants*, Coup de Coeur Chain Necklace, A. Emery Prince Sandals

If I’d known the weather would turn so suddenly, I would have opted for this outfit instead. Again, I’m in all-black, but the interest lies in the shape and movement. My supportive Organic Basics bralet keeps me feeling confident when I wear this blazer as a top, and the trousers and sandals combination takes down the formality a notch. Sadly I didn’t get chance to wear this outfit, but you’ll likely see it on me again soon!
