The time of the year has finally come: autumn is here! Time to get out your favourite cardigans and pullovers, cosy up with the fluffiest of knits and bury yourself in a whole lotta layers!
You might have started off the autumn season by tidying up your closet (we won't judge if you didn't!) and you might have realized that you’re missing something to create that perfect autumn outfit. It might be a super comfortable sweater or just a nice accessory to make your look complete. Or maybe you're here for some autumn outfits inspiration and ideas?
Our lovely Sonja has selected a few of our favourite items that you might want to wear this autumn 2020 - to make sure you will look stylish as heck while still being kind to our Mama Earth, humans and the animals.
This cosy knit sweater from Jan 'n June will make you fall in love with autumn even more. It has a boxy cut, an oversized fit and the colour is simply beautiful - is there anything else you could ask for? Oh yes, of course - the sweater is locally produced in Europe and made out of certified organic cotton. So besides looking absolutely amazing, you will also feel great knowing that this beautiful sweater is from a sustainable brand.
These modern boots will give an edgy touch to your outfit thanks to which you can really stand out this fall. And you will love it even more when you hear that it is made out of... apple leather! The lovely Venus is Vegan is a 100% vegan shoe brand and every pair is handmade in Portugal. Cool, right?
This beautiful caramel-coloured checkered skirt from Armedangels is back and a wonderful piece to wear (again) this season! It’s made out of Tencel which makes the skirt so soft and comfortable. Go ahead: show everyone that wearing sustainable and fairly produced clothes can be super stylish.
In case you'd like to go for a denim skirt or the ultimate vegan leather look this autumn, no worries: we got plenty of beautiful ethical and sustainable skirts to choose from. Make sure to check these out:
If you want to wear any skirts or dresses this autumn, don't forget some tights to keep you warm! And if you are dreaming of patterned tights that are sustainably made to last, emission-free and knitted from recycled yarn… this dream might become your reality. Swedish Stockings are a great choice for your sustainable closet, as they create their pantyhoses from both pre-consumer and post-consumer nylon waste!
What is a better way to spice up your outfit than to add a small velvet cruise bag with a luxurious chain from Denise Roobol? Lovingly curated by Noumenon, who shows us what happens when ethics, aesthetics, passion and sustainability are combined - wonderful pieces like this! The beautiful bordeaux colour makes this bag a real eyecatcher.
Staying warm and protecting yourself from the rain doesn't have to compromise your style. And this beanie from The Vegang World proves just that. They invite you to be ridiculously, radically, endlessly kind together - and they walk the talk. 15% of the brand's income goes to, among others, animal shelters. Love.
The key to any perfect (autumn) outfit is in the details. Would you go for the necklace from TITS, the watch from Votch - or both?
There are plenty of reasons to proudly wear the TITS necklace: it is made of 100% recycled Sterling silver and plated with an 18-carat gold microlayer and made in Thailand where they only use conflict-free metals and stones and certified recycled silver.
The times when you couldn't find a vegan leather watch are a thing of the past. The Kindred gold and tan watch is chic, stylish and cruelty-free.
Unfortunately, facemasks have become a new necessity in 2020. But that doesn't mean you can't make it look good while still keeping true to your low-waste principles. And by having a reusable mask, you keep yourself, the ones around you and our planet a bit safer. A nice way to show you give a damn!
Facemasks.amsterdam has a beautiful range of earth tone colours making it easy to find the one that fits your style.
Phyne offers a wonderful collection of facemasks that are made of organic cotton. And you can choose between the “don't forget to smile” or “protect what you love” design - what a perfect fit for a facemask!
If you'd prefer to wear a facemask made of lyocell, check out the collection from the London-based brand Fouremme. And if you prefer to go the bamboo-way, Nooboo has your back (or in this case, your face!).
Isn't it wonderful that every day it gets easier to wear fancy and stylish clothes while supporting fair, sustainable and vegan companies? I hope you feel inspired by this autumn look and in case you are looking for a new item to add to your wardrobe this season, make it vegan, fair and as sustainable as possible. You know we are here to make it easier and stylish!
