Every year, summer is over and winter comes along. Every year, the thought of another cold season here in New York City sends me into a spiral.
Mere months ago, near the tail end of summer, 6 p.m. would’ve meant golden hour. The trees would be covered in lush green leaves, glowing in the sun without any warning of their impending doom. The breeze would have been cool and short skirts would have been worn. I might have had an Ice Cream cone in my hand.
The sun sets at this time every day, and it does so earlier and sooner. The wind is colder, the leaves are turning brown and withering on the streets, and so the sweater drawer I’d left shut for the better part of seven months has squeaked back into action. The winters in the city are not only bright and cheerful, but also cold and dark.
As I was contemplating the cost of a sacrilegious winter under the Los Angeles sun, a former editor (and incredibly stylish person) posted a photo on their Instagram story showing a cable-knit sweater with the caption “personal hygge.”It worked. Perhaps it wasn’t all lost! With a little help of the Danish, maybe I could metaphorically escape the abyss of seasonal depression.
HyggeDanish word meaning “em” “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well being,”This is a long-standing Nordic practice. Scandinavian fashion has recently had a grip on American style, as have that region’s cultural practices. Hygge refers to the state of inner warmth and eternal happiness. Tapered candlesticks Throw blankets made of plush materials? String lights suspended from the ceiling A fireplace crackling on the TV screen? I started to think about all the ways I could create a sense of personal hygge with my wardrobe. Perhaps if the clothes I put on my body made me feel cozy, they’d also make me feel happy and, in turn, fill the void the sun has left behind.
What does it really mean to have personal hygge that is in line with your personal style? You can certainly lean on the luxurious and lavish items that look almost indulgent but only if it is so. you.Cashmere is my favorite cozie, but you hate it! Don’t wear it! Is wool itchy? Donate your merino sweaters!
Personal hygge means dressing up in clothes that make the cold seem like a special occasion. It makes you feel right at home and like you were dressed to enjoy the occasion. Think knits and shearling, fuzz and crochet, faux fur. coatsYou can wrap yourself in warmth.
As always, I recommend contacting your local vintage and thrift storesHave a look. The knits stowed away in those spots are often exactly what we’re looking for. If you’re searching for something more specific to hygge your closet, we’ve got you covered.
