words Sophie Lou Wilson

Have you heard? Hot girl summer is over. It’s officially cosy boy autumn now. Enter pumpkin spiced lattes and cancelling plans to stay in and binge Netflix. With that first chill in the air and the sound of leaves crunching underfoot comes the frisson of excitement for a new season. Before the fatigue of a long winter sets in, autumn is the perfect, gentle antidote to summer.

Cosy boy autumn is a state of mind. It’s about slowing down and prioritising comfort in bubble baths, scented candles, and your favourite autumnal films and series. Think of it as adjacent to the Danish concept of hygge, defined as “a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or wellbeing”. Putting cosiness first might feel strange when modern life is so fast-paced, but view it as part of the pushback against hustle culture. After all, why hustle when you can simply be a cosy?

And ofc, there’s a sartorial element to all this. Some of pop culture’s favourite cosy boys include Chris Evans in Knives Out and Bill Crystal in When Harry Met Sally who both look comfy af in their chunky knits. A few IRL cosy boy style icons include Robert Pattinson, Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal who are often seen rocking chic knitwear that blends comfort and style.

Below, we’ve rounded up 10 cosy essentials to live the cosy boy autumn of your dreams.
