Fair Fashion Favourites Autumn '19
Autumn is coming up and I could not be more excited! I love the season and I love wrapping myself in cosy sweaters and scarfs. I know that it can be difficult to find sustainable and ethical brands, especially when it comes to jackets, coats and boots – which are essential for a chilly autumn day. I put together a little list of fair fashion favourites for autumn, in case you need some inspiration. It’s all about warm earthy tones mixed with some bold colours.

Sweaters & Cardigans
First and maybe most importantly for the season of sweater weather: cardigans and sweaters. Whether you use them for layering or want to wear them as statement pieces themselves.
Coats & Jackets
An autumn staple you just can’t go without: a warm-but-not-too-warm jacket or coat.
Basics, basics, basics because they’re best for layering!
These are my favourite shorts and skirts from fair fashion brands.
Since autumn is often perfect to just have a comfy day inside, I decided to include some loungewear in this guide.
MATE The Label is a really cool Los Angeles based clothing label that focuses on sustainable and ethical practices. On their website they tell you the cost-per-wear for each of their pieces which I think is great. It promotes investing in pieces that will last long.
To be honest, before I started researching for this guide, I was worried I wouldn’t finde a lot of good autumn-worthy shoes that are vegan while being ethically and sustainably produced. But I was surprised to find a lot of amazing brands that are worth mentioning here!
In autumn, when most outfits look mostly cosy due to earthy tones and knit textures, I like using an interesting or colourful bag to add a little something. Here are some cruelty-free options.
And what would autumn be without some cosy big scarves to wrap yourself in?
I hope the fair fashion favourites showed you once again how beautiful sustainable and ethical fashion can be and that there are plenty of gorgeous clothing items out there that have been produced fairly and environmentally friendly while not being too expensive.
I would like to stress again that this is by no means meant to make you feel like you need any of these pieces, but if you are still looking for something to keep you warm during autumn, maybe you now consider some of the mentioned fair fashion brands.
