Select Shopping | Kronprinsensgade
Lined with a mix of chic boutiques and established brand names, and somewhat sheltered from the tourist hub that is Strøget in the summer, this tiny street is a great place to observe hipsters in their natural surroundings and shop for unique pieces for your closet – no more complaining about not having anything to wear.
Cheap Monday – Need some new denim? Step into Cheap Monday where you’ll be surrounded by jeans in every wash and cut imaginable. And if you find a pair that’s almost perfect, it can be altered on the spot, free of charge! Even if you don’t need more clothes, this shop is worth a visit just for its almost-painfully hip interior.

Hej Hej – This tiny store, which opened last November, has a lot of fashion crammed into its four walls. From shorts to shirts and from dresses to shoes, you won’t find yourself starved for options here. There’s currently a 50 percent sale on all shoes – definitely worth taking advantage of. And check out the accessories, which include some gorgeous jewellery.

Stig P – The bright pink rain-jacket in the window demanded that I go into this store. Inside, the shop was stocked with classic clothes with a modern twist: things you can wear today without feeling horribly untrendy but that won’t make you cringe in the future. Originally a family-operated menswear retailer, the founders might be shocked by what it carries today – one item that stood out was a daring yellow net bikini that would be see-through if not for tiny polka dots.
