Meet My New Fashion Icon: Jack of Cozypunk

You ever find someone new-to-you on social media that you fall instantly in love with, and then you have to obsessively inhale all of their content?

I love it when that happens.

So today, I want to introduce you to my new favorite person on social media, Jack of Cozypunk:

 

Hi, Jack!

My friend Pam linked me to the Cozypunk Instagram about a week ago, and Jack had me at their first little wave hello. I went full anime heart eyes, y'all. Not only is Jack's fashion sense speaking to my very SOUL, they also exude a kind of warmth and joy I'm just not used to seeing online. I can't help but smile every time I see them, and that alone makes their account worth sharing.

 Almost all of Jack's content is video as opposed to still photos, and look how charming:


If you've been here a while you may remember my ideal fashion sense is a mix of Toddler Grandma Style and Mori Girl, so you can definitely see how Jack's "cozypunk" hits all my favorite notes.


I'm a HUGE fan of layers, drapey fabrics, color, and boots/flats as opposed to heels - and Jack brings all that together while making it look absolutely fantastic:

Note how they wear rolled linen pants under all their skirts, the better for foraging/climbing/adventuring in. YES.

 This next one's caption reads, "Massive NPC merchant energy today!"

Most of these photos have corresponding videos, btw, and you're going to want to mosey over and watch them all. Soft smiles ahead.

Jack's partner made them this incredible leather belt, now I desperately want one:

Neeeed.

I'm also coveting their mossy green cap and collection of arm warmers:



SO CUTE.

It really is a cruel twist of fate that I love layers this much and live in a boiling swamp, heh. It's early February and we have the a/c on.  ::cries in Florida::
 
When you click over you'll see Jack has even more of a fashion range than I'm showing here, btw, since I'm only highlighting a few of my favorites.

Also love the little twisty poofs they do with their hair.

If you're like me and find yourself wanting just about everything Jack wears, good news! Jack makes and sells many of these incredible pieces, all excellent for layering.


Head over to their Instagram shop account, Cabbage Cottage, to see more of Jack's handmade wares and for purchase links. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for the next batch of long leather belts; that's a staple I definitely want in my wardrobe. (The extra length hanging down makes all the difference, right? Looks so good with skirts!)

 
I hope this helps you fall a little in love with Cozypunk, too! Be sure to say hi when you pop over to their account, let's show Jack some Epbot love.

And please keep sharing other accounts and creators you think I'd like! You bots are how I find most of the best stuff online, and I promise to keep sharing my favorites with the rest of the class.

::mwah::

Speaking of creators I love - and since I just bought another copy of their book for a friend - let me do another shout-out to Lindsay & Lexie Kite of Beauty Redefined. If you don't already, please follow them on Instagram, their philosophy of Body Image Resilience is literally life-changing.

If you're not a big Instagram user you can also buy the Kites' book, which recently released in soft cover:


Here's my book review, if you'd like to know more about what it's all about.

The Beauty Redefined Instagram has bite-size nuggets while the book is more of a fire hose, but both have the same basic - and amazing - content. I recommend both, if possible, so that after you read the book you'll get regular reminders of what you learned.

Happy weekend, friends!

  1. Wow!!! Now this is a style that could work for me! This past year has been a doozy and I'm craving a new wardrobe for a fresh start. Now I just need some money...

  2. You could make jumpers and skirts out of thin colored (or dye them!) cheesecloth or muslin for Florida temps.Scarves could be in Earth tones but with light materials. I bet your local Goodwill or other resale shop would have gauzy things with the same vibe.

    I could totally see building mix and match outfits like this with the same type of elf colors, in light materials.

  3. Doing the same thing with Linen might work with Florida heat.
