“Surely everyone is aware of the divine pleasures which attend a wintry fireside; candles at four o'clock, warm hearthrugs, tea”, said the English essayist Thomas de Quincey in the early nineteenth century. Fortunately, I have a Danish blog partner who has a word for this coziness: “Hygge” is a feeling of warmth, comfort and love, of woolen blankets, tea, cookies and laughter.
Why don’t we transport this Danish feeling to our wardrobe? Trousers are overrated in winter – we spotted some cozy winter tights in amazing color tones.
Coat: Chanel. Boots: Bugatti. Tights: Falke.
Colored tights are more than a basic, they create fifty percent of your outfit and add an avantgardistic statement. You just grab a woolen dress or a poncho (preferably in silent winter colors such as black, grey, or dark violet), and - voilà - create a fancy Hygge look!
Cape: Zero. Dress: Hallhuber. Boots: Bugatti. Tights: Burlington.
Additionally, tights are comfortable: If you eat too many cookies, there is no pressing trouser waistband. I usually wear woolen FALKE tights because they have a soft, comfortable waistband and do not slip down.
Tip: If your tights are too tight, take a scissor and cut a small triangle in the top end. As long as you only touch the waistband, there won’t be any runs or damages.
Poncho & Dress: Hallhuber. Pumps: Zara. Tights: Burlington.
Personally, I cannot wait to visit Katja in her Hygge home country. I heard that there is one of the biggest Alberto Giacometti collections close to Copenhagen - what a great opportunity to wear my patterned tights!
