The Week Hygge Cosy Hit Our Wardrobes

If there’s ever a time to em­brace all things toasty, it’s right now…

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

Chances are you’ve al­ready heard of the much-hyped phe­nom­e­non that is ‘hygge’ (pro­nounced hoo-gah) but, in case you’re to­tally un­aware, let us bring you up to speed. It’s a Dan­ish word that has no di­rect trans­la­tion in the English lan­guage but ba­si­cally sums up a mood of mak­ing ev­ery­day things more mean­ing­ful or beau­ti­ful. It’s a bliss­ful state of be­ing, which al­ludes to be­ing com­pletely snug and con­tent. Sounds nice, huh?

Although it may be a hard con­cept to put into words (the clos­est we have at our dis­posal is ‘cosy’), as far as fash­ion’s con­cerned, its pur­pose reads loud and clear. Love it or hate it, since this Scandi ex­port swept the na­tion, the high street’s fol­lowed with a bounty of toasty trea­sures. Think faux fur stoles, woolly coats, shear­ling booties and more cash­mere than the Queen has in her wardrobe ar­chives. We never liked body-con much any­way… 1 Top, £35, Max Stu­dio at John Lewis 2 Trousers, £99, Rosie for au­to­graph at Marks & Spencer 3 Coat, £99, Joy
