Happy 3. Advent everyone! Winter is in full swing, it´s actually snowing outside right now, and I started my Capsule Wardrobe for the cold season at the beginning of December. Today I wanna show you what I bought for surviving this Winter in style. It´s not a typical winter haul though, there is a second-hand item, a passed on one, and two from sustainable and vegan brands as well. Let´s start!
I got this cardigan second-hand from Asos Marketplace a few weeks ago. I actually had it in my saved section for quite some time before purchasing it, so it really was a well thought of decision. And I am so happy I bought it! I own a few cardigans, but they are all plain, and I love the colourful pattern this one has. I just wear it with a simple t-shirt, jeans and sneakers and the cardigan adds an amazing vintage vibe to the outfit.
Jeans are usually a hard thing to buy, right? Especially when they should not only fit well and look good, but also need to be vegan and fair. Seems like an impossible task, but this jeans from Monkee Genes, actually ticks all boxes. I like the light wash, it´s something that was missing in my small jeans collection and I already wore it a ton.
Finding vegan and truly warm boots, you know with a fake fur lining, that are also not crazy expensive is so hard! I had no luck finding a pair that I could afford or liked, so I had to compromise and went for fake fur lined and vegan Chelsea boots from H & M. Not the perfect solution, I know, but freezing my toes off isn´t a good option either…
Next up is this cosy, chunky knit jumper. I actually did not buy this, but my mom did a while ago. She ended up never wearing it so she passed it on to me and it already is one of my most worn jumpers this season. It´s so, so warm and I like the oversized, cropped fit, such a versatile item as it´s incredible easy to style.
I am obsessed with all things velvet, I always was, and when I saw this jacket on Asos, I fell in love with it. I mean velvet and dots? It doesn’t get any better than that! Of course I was hesitant because it´s not a fair or sustainable item, but since I could not stop thinking about it for two month, I finally bought it a week ago. ( That´s why it´s not shown in my Capsule, because at that point I did not have it yet ). It´s really warm, looks like it was made for me, is vegan and I absolutely adore it! Probably my favourite item from this entire winter haul (ternative) !
A metallic red bag that you can also wear as backpack, is sustainable, fair and vegan? Yes please! Finding high quality vegan bags still is not as easy as it should be, but Sans Beast is one of my absolute favourites when it comes to cruelty free bags. This red beauty sure is an eye-catcher, and it´s also really practical and fits my style perfectly. Check out this outfit for more photos of me wearing it….
That´s it for today! What is your favourite item from this winter haul (ternative) ? What did you buy this season? Leave me a comment…
I wish you the best day ever!
