Grey is a color of choice this winter in Copenhagen. Preferably spun in natural wool to underline the understated elegant streak. Easy to accessorize. Black/White, Red/Green. Grey is easy on the eyes and works well with almost everything.
Besides looking good, wool is great for keeping you warm on a cold morning ride. There are a lot of comfortable ride-friendly half-length coats and capes to choose from. Especially lots of Surtout drawn coats - with over-sized buttons to match. Above double lined buttons with dark-grey Grand Beret on top and below single line buttons topped off with a matching grey Beanie Hat.
Perfectly presentable and entirely practical. Top buttons only make for maximum mobility, with a wide overlap to avoid adverse winds creeping in. Oversized scarf and grey bag to go.
Grey poncho. Turquoise dress. Black leggings. All draped in the hazy morning greyness. The large buttons are set over her left shoulder and - another Copenhagen favourite - the mobile phone in her right hand.
