What Does Being Bold and Cozy This Autumn in Japan Mean?

Being bold and cozy means that you show both your dark and soft sides at the same time. This concept is not new in the fashion world, and it has been around for longer than you might think. However, in 2021, this year’s trendsetters decided to emphasize that bold and cozy is officially in and will become one of the year’s fashion highlights.

This concept emphasizes a bold and assertive look, showing that you are an independent woman with class. However, on the other hand, this display is also softened by a gentle touch which shows your softness and intelligence highlighted through a firm yet cozy look.

Young women in Europe and North America have already begun combining these two features and have started a new trend by posting their outfits on their social media accounts.

Now it’s your turn! Be a part of the trend, influencing your surroundings by serving a meaningful and confident look, and get ready to show it to the world!

Describe Your Creativity Through the Art of Self-Expression

Again, the key to being cozy and bold is to be brave in expressing yourself through your clothing, demonstrating a classy yet firm vibe but still giving a sweet impression, implied through the choice of colors. 

Expressing a bold style means that you must show strength and firmness through how you dress to successfully express your opinions. 

Meanwhile, being cozy stands to give your look a small touch of sweetness, resulting in a simple and comfortable look. If you want to play with a few different shades, you can start with a beige or earth-tone look, which does not have to be dark. Any tone you want is possible as long as it expresses a fierce yet comfortable look. 

Uniting these two opposing traits can give off an attractive and classy impression. 

For example, you could start with a crop-top shoulder-up blazer in beige to demonstrate your softer side, whilst at the same time combining it with dark ankle boots and jeans that give off the impression of long legs to match those heeled boots.

Prioritize the Quality of the Materials that Makes You Comfortable

Being comfortable is also an important component of being part of this bold and cozy trend. 

What is meant here by comfortable is that you can still easily keep up with the activities of the day under the cool autumn weather. 

In terms of serving a bold and cozy look, the choice of material is also important, and you should choose fabrics that are comfortable to wear throughout the day, such as knitted wool, softer-feeling materials, or fabrics that can keep you warm in the middle of autumn.

Moreover, it’s cardigan season! Who wouldn’t fall in love with a simple buttoned cardigan? 

Now, since the temperature is getting lower, you can finally put on your beloved cardigan and still show off your bold and cozy cardigan look by choosing dark colors to emphasize your bold side through your clothes of choice. 

Besides cardigans, oversized sweaters may be your go-to item. These look very good combined with Dr.Martens’ signature boots that are suitable for accompanying you during your daily life.

Remember… this is no longer the time to hide in that cuddly, comfortable look. It is all being bold, opinionated, and still feeling cozy at the same time!
