What To Wear: Winter Clothes
With wool, fur or faux fur, and down being pretty standard materials for winter clothing, it can be a challenge to find kind clothes for the cooler months. Since we’re heading into winter, I wanted to check in with you all and see what you’re planning to wear to stay warm. Here’s how I dress for winter:
When I shop, I look for second-hand clothes first. Some great second hand shops in LA are Wasteland, Crossroads Trading Company, and Buffalo Exchange. They offer a range of items from fancy pants style vintage and designer labels to gently used items from stores like H&M or Forever 21. Second hand shops like Blue Bird on Larchmont in LA are a great place to look for kids’ clothes too. Kids grow so fast; they tend not to wear clothes that long, so there’s a ton of gently used apparel for them if you know where to look.
If I can’t find what I need in second-hand stores, I buy new, but stick to eco-friendly, vegan brands. Vaute Couture makes awesome 100% vegan coats and accessories. You can also find lots of great clothes at these eco stores in LA and NYC. Companies like my friend Doug’s Loomstate, shoe company Olsen Haus, and model Lily Cole’s North Circular are striving to make apparel that’s eco, animal-friendly, and chic…so all you kind fashionistas can still get your style fix!
For more eco recommendations, check out the blog I wrote while I was in New York doing the play Time Stands Still. In it, I discuss a bunch of kind brands I found that kept me cozy during my winter in NYC.
