Åhlens is one of the great Swedish shops, and NK, is one of the best known of Stockholm. English court style with beautiful partes, perfumes and other types of clothes that are quite expensive but very good quality, especially winter and skiing clothes. Hats, gloves, scarves, warm trousers, a change from the greys, browns and blacks that are in season in the hotter countries. Swedish women manage to stay feminine in spite of the cold, warm clothes, with pretty boots and jackets. They are pretty but the clothes are also decent so that when winter arrives it's not like wearing a sack of potatoes.
