When it comes to children’s fashion for Fall ’18, hygge takes the form of sheepskin-lined booties, fur-pom beanies and butter-soft cardigans across muted palettes of blue, gray, cream and rose.

Hygge (pronounced hoo-gAh) is a Danish word used to describe a feeling or moment as cozy, charming or special. While the term doesn’t have a direct English translation, this concept of Scandinavian comfort has seen a surge of interest beginning in 2016, when it made Oxford Dictionary’s shortlist for “word of the year.” Since then, the expression has continued to gain traction, with more than 2.9 million #hygge posts on Instagram.

Hygge hype increases in winter, a season that lends itself to cozy, nesting experiences. (Think glowing candles, crackling logs on the fire and steaming mugs of hot cocoa.) Fashion designers interpret hygge through chunky knitwear, soft slippers, woven textiles and oversized silhouettes in their fall/winter collections. Materials like shearling, cashmere and mohair are gaining popularity, as are hygge-inspired styling elements like scrunched-up sleeves, slouchy shoulders and a loose tuck at the waist.
