Fall Sweater Weather Style Tips
It's that time of year again, it's official #sweaterweather. But dressing for the colder weather doesn't mean you can't have fun with your outfits or have to spend a ton of money. In fact, you can be just as sustainably stylish by being creative with layering and updating your wardrobe with some fun trendy pieces from great consignment stores.
Listed below are our five favourite tips for updating your sustainable style this fall and winter:
1. Break out the oversized knit + skirt combo
Everyone's got a favourite cozy oversized sweater sitting in their closet. Create a stylish high waisted skirt look by layering a warm knit over the malou veronica dress. Who says you can't look cute and stay warm at the same time? For our nursing/breastfeeding mamas out there, you'll still be able to feed wearing your outfit.
2. Incorporate trends at a friendly price
Consignment is such a great way to update your wardrobe while still supporting sustainable fashion and being kind to your wallet. A YYC favourite for the past few years, Peacock Boutique, always carries high quality fashionable pieces. Check out their Instagram, @peacockboutique, to see their daily updates on newly consigned pieces.
3. Get fashionable consignment from the comfort of your home
Alternatively, there's a great online option like Poshmark. With this popular and secure consignment marketplace, you can clean out your closet and also shop while never leaving your bed. During those early months of quarantine, I definitely went Marie Kondo on my closet and was able to safely consign and make some money too.
4. Layer with a cozy sweatshirt
The Pia sweatshirt is a fan favourite all year round but even more so during these colder months. Layering during fall is key with chilly and windy weather, which is no problem for the versatile Pia. Layer it with a tank or light tee underneath and a down puffy vest for extra warmth. For those having to work in an office setting, it also looks great layered with a classic white dress shirt.
5. Accessorize with the non-official Canadian national hat
As a Canadian company, we obviously have a Canadian spin on our style. Ask any Canadian what their favourite winter accessory is and it's got to be either a cozy pair of mittens or toque. YYC based company Local Laundry creates Canadian-made garments that will become some of your casual favourites. Their Giving Toque is one of the many ways they give back to the community. With each sale, a toque is also donated to a homeless organization across Canada.
