Touchy subject

Explaining the concept of hygge was once as tricky as trying to pronounce it, but thanks to a glut of lifestyle books and shelter magazine articles published in late 2016, the world is now intimately familiar with the elevated take on coziness rooted in Danish culture. A year later, that relaxed-yet-refined feeling is making its way into apparel through oversized knits in luxurious yarns, accessories that elevate humble textures and coats that cocoon you. It's a trend that's perfectly suited to a Canadian fall, and likely won't be falling out of fashion any time soon. Time to layer up
