When it comes to fashion hygge is all about keeping it casual, matching the casual tone and atmosphere that’s hygge signature.
The Danes have turned it into an art form to dress casual but looking stylish at the same time. Whether you’re a total homebody or love to get out of the house, make sure you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing. Is it snuggly socks, furry boots, chunky jumpers, oversized tees? After a busy day outside the home, slipping into your favourite home outfit is a great way to leave the hustle and bustle behind you. Comfy clothing helps you get into lower gear and unwind instantly. Look at your wardrobe and find out what it takes to make it really work for you.
If you want to dress hygge-style, it’s all about comfort. Go for natural, soft, warm and sturdy materials like wool and leather. Buy a size up for an oversized, loose fit. Don’t wear make up or style your hair, ‘au naturel’ is the motto here. Become a wardrobe minimalist and create a capsule wardrobe.
Dress like a Dane (from: The Little Book of Hygge). Wear scarfs. The bigger the better, winter or summer. Choose bulky wool sweaters, jumpers and cardigans on top of a legging or skinny jeans. Dress in layers and always bring another cardigan. Being cold is not hygge. Don’t mind the hair. Just wake up and go. Or put it in a bun. Get inspired by the iconic Sarah Lund jumper.
Ever heard of the saying ‘There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing?’ Take a look outside and dress accordingly. If you’re properly dressed, even the worst weather is not so bad. And think of that hot shower when you get home. When it’s cold, wear mittens, a scarf and/or a hat. When it’s wet, use a raincoat or an umbrella. When it’s snowing, wear (snow)boots.
Use your wardrobe as a start of decluttering your home. According to tidying guru Marie Kondo, your clothing is the perfect place to start if you want to get rid of all the clutter in your home. Only keep what you love, everything else needs to go.
