This fashion pro reveals the essentials we should all have this summer
She juggles her job as a dentist and content creator on a daily basis. Based in Copenhagen, Ilirida Krasniqi
never ceases to inspire us with her well-thought-out looks, composed of fashion timelessness. Style lesson.
When she’s not at the clinic, Ilirida Krasniqi wears the hat of a content creator. That is, a signature
style that she shares through Instagram, in the course of resolutely chic and minimalist looks. The perfectly
cut jeans, the right top and the cool and comfortable heels… Multiplying the no-faults in fashion, Ilirida
Krasniqi has complied with the fashion questionnaire of Vogue. Selected pieces and shopping selection to
match her style.
A scandi-minimal style with a touch of French chic
Vogue. Your first fashion memory?Ilirida Krasniqi. When I was a child, my mother always dressed me in a
certain way, but I always added my own style by changing the way my mother tied the dress, etc. And I would
pick out my own accessories! The first trend I probably followed was the 90’s black choker tattoo effect,
which I adopted like every other kid during that fashion decade!
When did you first become interested in fashion? Around the age of 16/17. Before that, I was extremely athletic
and dressed mostly in tracksuits and sneakers. I played handball for many years and thought my future was
to be a professional player, but around that time, in high school, I also started to get interested in fashion
blogs, which took me in a different direction. I was finding inspiration online and slowly fashion started
to become a bigger part of my life. I had a strong intrinsic desire to be creative in this field, so I went
for it myself.
You studied dentistry. How do you balance being a dentist with being a content creator? Yes, I have a master’s
degree in dental surgery and I work as a dentist 2 to 3 times a week. In addition to my work at the clinic,
I work full time as a content creator. I strongly believe that a balanced professional life is the key to
happiness. A diverse daily life that stimulates different parts of the brain is what fuels me to keep going.
The fashion industry can be very demanding at times: you always have to be innovative, creative and, above
all, online. It’s when I’m at work that I can take a break from my social media presence. Throughout my
shifts, I am 100% focused on my patients, whether it’s a root canal or a surgery, it’s kind of meditative
for me to change my focus. After a few days in a row at the clinic, I’m usually completely recharged and
curious to get back into my creative mindset in the fashion world. It’s a perfect combination. When people
ask me how I manage to balance my two professions, the answer is very simple: doing what you love and making
sure there is a balance between the two will give you the energy to face the week!
How would you define your style? Scandi-minimal, elegant, with a touch of French chic!
Your fashion inspirations?I mostly find my inspiration in movies, on social networks (mainly Pinterest) or even
by passing well-dressed women and men in the street. Most of my inspirations are stored unconsciously in my brain,
so I’m not always aware of where a specific look comes from, but the more I expose myself to inspiration, the more
creative I can be.
The five pieces a woman should always have in her wardrobe… First of all, it’s about investing in good quality,
and preferably eco-friendly, pieces. Here are the five pieces that I have had in my wardrobe for several years
and that I have never stopped wearing:
- A white shirt
- A pair of jeans
- An oversized blazer
- A black silk dress
- A pair of comfortable heeled sandals
The ultimate fashion piece you feel comfortable in is a classic trenchcoat. This one from Mark Kenly Domino Tan is
one of my favorites, chic and comfortable!

its elegance. Since I just moved into an apartment in Copenhagen, I’m focusing more on interior design.
As soon as I get my apartment set up, I’m dreaming of investing in a Kelly bag from Hermès, which I could
potentially pass on to my future daughter. For this summer, I’ve also added a timeless bikini from Anemos
to my wishlist, worn with this long, sheer Coperni blouse. So the perfect look for attending a festival
in Portugal next month!

Your beauty routine?I’ve always had problems with my skin, including acne. Medication was the only way
to keep my skin clear. However, since I started applying oil to my skin, which I always thought I should
avoid, it is now acne free. I love Tromborg’s products. They do both beauty and skincare made with natural
and organic ingredients, which is essential for sensitive skin.
Your mantra?when it comes to fashion, I have a rule: if I want to buy something new, I have to sell a piece
from my wardrobe first. I’ve been doing this for many years and have always made it a point to sell the
items I no longer use. For me, it justifies buying new.
Future plans? I believe in a future where people will be more successful than ever in balancing their jobs
and their passions in their daily lives. I want to be an example of this. I dream of a project that can
help women motivate themselves to achieve their dreams, even if their passions are opposite.
