While stateside fashionistas have their sights set on the upcoming New York Fashion Week, Spring 2016 has already come and gone in Copenhagen. The Danes have delivered a fresh plate of prep-meets-dorky-parents style, and the results ('80s sweaters, socks with flats, tacky tourist shirts and khaki shorts) were surprisingly tempting.
We're serious! The Danes have redesigned geek chic, and we've got the five best looks - and how to shop similar looks – right here. From dashing to class to strutting about town, your spring wardrobe is about to get a major makeover.

2. Henrik VibskovThe '80s sweater from Henrik Vibskov makes geek look glam, and we are absolutely loving it. Find your own version with zany patterns, and pair it with a roomy set of slacks and patent leather oxfords. Comfort has never looked so cute. Plus, those shiny oxford shoes add just the touch of polish the look needs!
3. GanniThe updated dad-approved tacky tourist uniform is expertly suited for a spring stroll through the park. Floral breezy button-down? Check. Khaki shorts? Check. And don't forget the sandals! We can't get enough of this cavalier-cool attitude, and a few undone buttons up top give the look a fresh-from-the-beach spin.
