GREAT BASIC FASHION ITEMS BY EVERLANE

During summer time I have no problems pulling an outfit together, I usually wear a tunic or kaftan dress and I am ready to go. But during the winter months I find it not so easy choosing an outfit that is comfortable, stylish and warm. Fortunately there is Everlane, a shop that offer great basics for affordable prices. Their style is a cross between Scandinavian simplicity and French chic, resulting in basic elegant and casual fashion. Everlane only works with ethical factories and they offer transparent prices. Everlane: “We believes our customers have a right to know how much their clothes cost to make. We reveal the true costs behind all of our products—from materials to labor to transportation—then offer them to you, minus the traditional retail markup.” Last year I bought the Wool cable cashmere sweater featured in the first image and it is still a favorite. The sweater in grey is now on sale for only 91 USD!

J. CREW NEW FALL & WINTER COLLECTION

Every year I have the same ritual to get ready for fall and winter. During these early days of autumn (I love this time of year!) I buy new candles, stock up on fire wood, create a seasonal table with my son and inspect my wardrobe to see if I need some new clothes for the upcoming season. J. Crew has the perfect collection to stock up on some new fall/winter clothing. I like to mix basic items (e.g. jeans, a denim jacket or simple black pants) with some more edgy pieces such a faux fur coat and metallic ankle boots. Above and below you can see my favorite items from J. Crew’s current collection. Above: faux fur leopard coat
