With the arrival of the fall season, our homes are brimming over with scented candles and fuzzy blankets, and now our closets are ready for a dose of friendly comfort, too. Think “Hygge.” It’s the trendy Scandinavian word that’s perfect for describing the way we all want to dress when leaves start to fall and fires start crackling.

The Oxford Dictionary defines hygge (pronounced HUE gah) as “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).” And what better way to snuggle into a new season than to embrace the relaxed spirit of hygge?

Take a cue from Lands’ End, the Wisconsin-based retailer who recently launched “The Art of Cozy,” a new leisure collection that celebrates the hygge movement and features easy-to-wear clothes in the softest of fabrics.

Embrace the softer side of fall fashion

“As lifestyles continue to evolve, so does fashion,” says Chieh Tsai, senior vice president of design for Lands’ End. “Today, women want to look stylish while being comfortable and have truly embraced a cozy, carefree approach to getting dressed each day,” she adds. Here’s how you can get comfy and put some hygge into your own wardrobe this fall:

>> Start at the top. The plush life begins with soft sweaters. The hottest fashion statements are the chunky turtlenecks, but cowl neck pull-overs, tunics and long cable-knit cardigans are all vying for attention. These knit tops can be the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe easily mixing with casual jeans, leggings and even tailored trousers for the office. Swap out a traditional blazer for a boucle drape front “waterfall” cardigan to bring a little hygge to your workplace.

>> Invest in a fleece vest. The down “puffer” vest is still a fall favorite that warms up the coldest of days without the bulk of a coat. But this fall, the softer side to take is the soft quilted fleece vest. A little lighter, but much more comfortable, especially on those autumn days when chilly mornings turn into warmer afternoons. Fleece pullovers are other cozy options that can be layered under down vests when extra warmth is needed.

>> Add a lightweight jacket. Yes, even outerwear has gone soft this fall. French terry hoodies and bomber jackets are cozy favorites for men; and for women, the latest pea coats feature brushed wool fabrics that have a velvety feel to them. In mint green, they’re a delicious treat for the lighter side of fall.

>> Sweater “coats” are other third-layer alternatives to heavy jackets – the longer the better this fall. In luxurious cashmere, these kimono-inspired knits will provide plenty of those special hygge moments from the minute you put them on.

>> Pull on your pajama pants. But not just any pajama pants. This fall, the comfort factor extends to all kinds of easy-to-wear pants that are anything but sloppy. Meant-to-be-seen joggers, sweatpants, jeggings and of course, leggings, are all basic must-haves in the cozy hygge wardrobe.

>> Dress to impress. You don’t have to worry about leaving the plush life behind at home, either. Slip into a merino wool cable knit sweater dress that you can rock day and night. Then wrap up in an oversized plaid blanket scarf for even more style out on the street. When you get to the office, light a pumpkin spice candle, relax and breathe in all the comfort of a new fall day.

Feathers are a Huge Fashion Trend Fall 2017, Let’s Start Wearing Them Now!

By KellyWil

Feathers are becoming street-friendly! The proof of this was that the feather-embellished skirts anddresses at Miu Miu’s and J.W. Anderson’s did not trigger any feeling of glamorous Twenties style: infact, they looked as cool and as laid-back as they could possibly be. Feathers blend in with new fabrics,simply getting applied onto cotton, leather and linen – a new mix that makes us look at feathers in afresh, new way. We would totally wear those pieces during the day! And for all those who still need alittle time to get used to this new fluffy material in their wardrobes, there are a lot of cute feather-embellished shoes and bags, too.

This season, fashion birds all have wind under their feathers. Sashaying between laid-back street and opulent exaggeration, these fluffy 1920's details are making a striking comeback. Spotted all over the the Autumn Winter 2017-2018 catwalks, feathers are finally just about to conquer ready-to-wear, as they did with haute couture years ago.

Sure, the looks at Balenciaga’s are pure (but beautiful) exaggeration. Wrapped in fluffy feathers from head to toe, the models nearly disappeared underneath the thick pillow-like layers. But the discreet feather details we spotted on sleeves at Alexander McQueen’s, or the little plumes embroidered all over the feathery dresses at Calvin Klein’s, showed us that winds of change are in the air.

Coordinating Colors For A Fresh New Look

Fashion is an intimidating topic at times, and can make a person feel self-conscious. Fortunately there are resources available, all you need is the right information. Think about these tips each and every day to look your best.

Dress in a way that accurately reflects your age. If you are a young professional woman, do not go to work dressed like someone in their teens. On the other hand, if you are a teenager, do not dress in a style that an older woman would feel comfortable in.

Look inside fashion magazines to get an idea of what you should be wearing for this season. You don't have to get clothes that directly match what the latest fashion is. However, you can form a style that is very similar so people may know you are up to date with the latest fashion.

Lip gloss is a girl's best friend! There is nothing worse than dry, chapped, uncomfortable-feeling lips. That's where a pretty gloss comes in! Whether you like the super-glossy look or something a little more subdued, lip gloss is a great way to keep your lips looking and feeling their best throughout the day.

Accentuate the positive. Look for items of clothing that show off your attributes. If you have a great waistline, look for clothing that features an embellished mid-line or add an attractive belt. If have a great neckline, draw the eye in that direction with a fancy collar or fun necklace.

Be sure that you are being strategic when choosing how much skin you want to show. This is important because you need to be sure that you are not going past what is considered tasteful when it comes to the amount of coverage you have. A great way to judge this is to accentuate just one feature of your body.

Fashion is a huge field to consider. You just need to think about what you like. There are many cool looks, and one of them is just right for you. These tips will help you become a fashion master.
