Scandinavia's best-dressed delivered a masterclass in the dreamiest outfits to coordinate with a flower crown, whilst dancing around the maypole, sipping on schnapps and savouring jordgubbstårta
Feeling nostalgic about this year's Midsummer memories already? This round-up of the most stylish Scandi It-girls' looks from over the weekend is the perfect way to revisit the fun-filled celebrations. From Hanna Schönberg in dreamy bridal wear to Bianca Ingrosso in an unorthodox black floor-length gown, these swoon-worthy outfits will prompt you to start planning ahead for next year – or inspire you to rethink your approach to Swedish summer dressing entirely.
Embodying the true definition of a midsummer's dream, Hanna Schönberg opted for an idyllic, fairytale inspired two piece from Mirror Palais' bridal story collection. Perfectly encapsulating Marcel Gaia's sentiment behind the collection, Schönberg opted for a dreamlike silhouette which featured an off-the-shoulder puff top, paired with a luxurious flouncy skirt. The delicate lace accents and generous gathers of silk tied in perfectly with the Midsummer origins, especially when paired with mini plaits interwoven with daisies. For those looking for a romantic, wedding inspired take on Midsummer: take note.
For Midsummer 2023, Fanny Ekstrand stayed true to her renowned, expertly curated style. Best known for mixing feminine, heavily monochromatic pieces with bolder '80s- and '90s-inspired silhouettes, Ekstrand opted for a statement Khaite dress for the celebrations. The look was one of contrast, marrying together sleek, modern lines forming the top bodice with an exaggerated skirt-bottom - which she wore with a lush green, quintessentially Midsummer-esque flower crown.
Swedish native Sofia Boman's look ticked every box associated with nailing midsummer dress code: a dress which was floaty, floral and floor length. She opted for a maxi dress by leading Scandinavian occasion-wear brand, By Malina. The flowing silhouette, tiered floral pattern and tie-shoulder detailing made for a feminine, free-moving finish – as demonstrated by the festive twirling captured on her Instagram.
Swedish muse Filippa Moulier effortlessly proved that sustainability and style co-exist. To celebrate sustainably in style, Moulier opted for a thrifted, floral bandeau midi dress lined with a pink bodice piping for a cinched fit paired with flats.
Swedish based entrepreneur Naima Osman stunned in a floor length, lace dress with crochet detailing and wide sleeves. The dress featured subtle panel detailing which she styled with a classic Loewe tote, making for the perfect outdoor picnic attire.
Fusing tradition with a sense of modernity, Lisa Olsson opted for red floor-length dress by Realisation Par. Drawing on influences from the '70s, her elegant number featured large bell sleeves and a loose-fit. Despite the statement colour, the look didn't stray too far from tradition in its delicate floral design.
Swedish muse Angelica Blick wore an unconventional ensemble for her summer festivities. Sporting a baby blue, frayed hem set with oversized sleeves, plunge neckline and asymmetrical bottoms, the look was unmistakably Acne Studios. The imperfect, jagged edges combined with the subtle, pastel shade served a tinkerbell-esque, ethereal finish.
Another unorthodox Midsummer dress was worn by popular Swedish personality and entrepreneur, Bianca Ingrosso, who opted for a black ruffled maxi dress for her celebrations. The dark hue and chiffon frills exuded gothic romanticism and marked a refreshing change from traditional whites.
Stylist Julian Hernandez sported an understated look, with an oversized Acne Studios shirt teamed with a white vest and frayed hem jeans.
