Sometimes all it takes is for one person to DM me asking for a post on something and that is this post for ya. Even though I prefer summer over winter I can’t pass up a good sweater so here are a few of my favorite brands to sustainably shop at this fall + winter.
Note: Although I earn income if you shop from the affiliate links, I encourage you to search for these brands secondhand! Check out this blog post to see my favorite online shops to buy secondhand.
The cult favorite cardigan worn by all the blogger + Instagram peeps out there. I own one, and I’m not gonna lie, they are worth the hype and price.
I’m very petite and I actually purchased the large kids size and it fits great! Bonus, it’s cheaper too! Here’s an older blog post where I reviewed the cardigan against an Everlane one.
Okay, they do have a striking resemblance to Sézane but they do in fact carry different things! Either way I’m loving all the cool French girl vibes they’re serving.
I will say that Balzac is a bit more transparent with their manufacturing process and ethics. I would rate them higher one the doing-good-as-a-sustainable-brand-scale if there was such a thing.
Home of the $100 cashmere (not currently available). Everlane does basics right and is always the first spot I check if I’m looking for a quality made piece. They have the largest selection of sweaters and I bet they have what you are looking for this fall!
The oversized alpaca crew is literally my most worn/favorite sweater I wear. I wore it at least once a week last winter!
Being petite and finding a good cropped sweater can be hard and they really nailed this one! I’m planning on wearing it with dresses this winter!
Pro tip: Their stuff sells out quickly. I made sure to snag a white and black in their cropped sweater already; my size was sold out pretty much all of last winter.
If you had to pick one thing to get from this whole list it should be Sézane’s Gaspard Jumper AKA a cardigan.
It can be worn like ten different ways. You can wear it buttoned up in the front, reversed with the buttons in the back, opened like you would a normal cardigan, tucked in, French tucked, tied at the waist to be made cropped, or half unbuttoned. It is such a good + versatile piece!
