In Sweden there's something called “jantelagen” - “the law of being nothing at all”. Basically the message can be summarized as a need to be humble and “nothing” in particular. To embrace “Jante” fully you need to blend in, not be “too much”, keeping a low profile making sure that you under no circumstances stand out from the crowd.
Well, I did'nt think of “Jante” that much when I bought this top and the Myrorna vintage store the other day. But to be honest, I rarely embrace “Jante” in everyday life. I think life would be a lot more fun and exciting if all Swedes made sure that Jantelagen was extinct.
