Fashion Forecast: A Sporty Puffer Vest Styled For Three Different Temperatures

A puffy down vest is a wardrobe must for anyone who lives in a cold climate, as they provide loads of heat without adding tons of bulk to your outfit. Plus, they have a whole sporty, utilitarian vibe to them that’s actually quite chic, if styled properly. Here’s how I’d wear it depending on the weather forecast…

Must Haves: 14 Cozy Mixed-Knit Sweaters

This season, chunky sweaters with unexpected patters are the ultimate weekend wear. These comfy layers provide much needed warmth, without looking frumpy.  If only my knitting skills were up to the challenge of mixing cable, pom-pom, and diamond patterns into one design! I guess I’ll just be knitting simple scarves and buying all of my mixed knit sweaters this year. Check out a few that will put your classic cable knits to shame.

 

Compassionate Fashion: Rad Tomboy Style From Tradlands

Tradlands is a new fashion company based in San Francisco with a simple mission: “Our intention is to make the best clothing for our customer, the woman who drifts towards the men’s section and thinks, ‘I wish they made this for me.’” Using fabrics and materials from the US, Tradlands designs and manufactures all of their timeless, tomboy-inspired shirts in downtown San Francisco.

I just got one of their henley shirts (pictured on the right), and I was completely blown away by the quality. After spending so many years filling my closet with flimsy Forever 21 blouses, it’s refreshing to feel fabric with a bit of weight to it, and strong seams that won’t disintegrate after two wearings. Tradlands makes the kind of shirts you’ll own and love for years, which, combined with the ethical sourcing and attention to detail, easily justifies the price.

The other thing I love about Tradlands is that even though the brand’s aesthetic is very tomboy-ish, these shirts would look just as good with a pencil skirt and high heels as they would with slouchy jeans and sneakers. So cute and versatile. Want to give Tradlands a try? Click through to check out some of their awesome options…

Compassionate Fashion: Stylish, American-Made Sneakers From New Balance

When it comes to major athletic brands, most companies’ abhorrent manufacturing practices leave a lot to be desired. And then there’s New Balance. Take a spin through one of their stores or pick up one of their colorful athletic shoes and you’ll probably find a little surprise printed on the tag: “Proudly Made In The USA.”

While other brands have moved more and more of their production overseas, New Balance has increased their domestic manufacturing jobs by 45% since 1995, and have never — I repeat, NEVER — laid off a domestic factory worker. Currently, 25% of New Balance shoes (that’s 7 million pairs a year) are made in the USA. If you want to support American workers, pamper your feet, and look fabulous at the gym, New Balance is absolutely the way to go. I’ve picked out a few of my favorite sneakers (and one magical pair of socks) from their USA collection. Click through to check ‘em out!
