From the Ground Up: Viktoria Dahlberg

We met Viktoria Dahlberg (@viktoria.dahlberg on Instagram) at a brand breakfast here in New York and she was one of the most instantly engaging individuals I’ve ever met, with her own classic, signature style. She’s both an influencer and content creator who works with various brands and is soon to launch a brand of her own. We had a chance to hang with Viktoria at her insta-famous Williamsburg apartment to document five of her favorite looks, from the ground up.

“My friend and I were searching for beige boots and I had something in mind but nothing felt right. She found these and I LOVED them. I wear these shoes ALL the time. I love that they aren’t a solid color and have some pattern…Mostly, I just get happy when I wear them.”

"Most of this look is & Other Stories. I just love their style. It’s literally been one of my favorite brands since they opened in Stockholm…I think I’m really inspired by Scandinavia in terms of my wardrobe. I like minimalistic pieces that aren’t too loud."

“I’ve probably worn these almost everyday since I got them (I’ve had them resoled a lot). It’s hard to find the perfect ankle boot. They are all too wide for me. So these are easy to slide on and then they are skinny around the ankle. No ankle gap!”

"I bought my first Stella McCartney last year and I love the brand because it’s not in your face. That’s how I like to style – no logos. It’s more sophisticated. This is my second bag from this brand, I got it on sale at the Stella McCartney store in SoHo."

“I love this snake pattern and the combination of beige and black which are my two favorite colors.”

"The amount of compliments I get walking down the street in this jacket is insane. Just walking to the train…I probably get at least two people that stop me every time. People freak out about it!"

“LOVE my black Vans. I’m not a big sneaker person but these black Vans always make me feel chic when I’m wearing them. These are the only sneakers that I think look good on me and I feel comfortable wearing. I have PLENTY of Vans, but I usually only wear the black. Hashtag #NotSponsored.”

"These jeans are the best. fit. ever. because they’re cropped. I am so picky with pockets but ACNE jeans fit me really well – they’re flattering for my body shape."

“Comfortable, warm, cute… and my favorite beige tone. Not the best for New York because they’re going to get very dirty, but I’d rather have these get dirty then some of my other boots in the winter.”

"I like to wear all beige and be cozy. I think I was probably a hamster in a previous life, or that’s what people tell me."
