Berlin Fashion Week may only be a week long, but the city’s glam-meets-gritty spirit lives on all year. Brimming with style chameleons and full-time creatives, you’ll find style inspiration everywhere wherever you look. If you want to fit in with the cool kids, remember to pack your worn-in Dr. Martens and oversized trench coat.
