But the concept of hygge doesn’t just apply to your home. As I learned in the cute hygge reference book, The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living, by the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute, Meik Wiking, you can hygge anything. Your tea can be hygge’d. Your cocktail, hygge’d. Even your winter activities can be hygge’d. Most importantly for the fashion fanatics out there, your wardrobe can be hygge’d—and delightfully so.
Concepts at the core of hygge fashion, according to Wiking, include scarfs, woolen socks, plenty of layers, and a styling concept he calls “top bulky.”
Here are some suggestions as to how to hygge-ify your style while still staying true to the season’s obsessions.
Embrace Head-to-Toe Knits
Don’t Deny Yourself Comfy Socks
A Scarf Is a Must
Try Faux Fur with Everything
Keep Your Legs Cosy Too
