As seasons shift, it is time for our wardrobes to adjust. When temps start to drop, we want to have items on hand that keep us warm while still expressing our individual personalities and looking sexy. Yes, this is all possible. Here are some cozy fall items that will do the trick in keeping the chill off while cranking the volume up on sex appeal:
Mayu sells one-of-a-kind, fair trade, hand-knit alpaca accessories made by artisans in rural Peru. The name Mayu, or river in Quechua (the native language of Mayu’s artisans), represents the beauty of family and the preservation of the environment. Items to check out include the Alpaca Hat, Infiniti Scarf, and Floral Neck Scarf to name just a few. The Infinity Scarf is available in several colors, including a unisex style that can be worn by just about anybody and with just about anything.
Izzy Lane collections, including warm jackets and knits, are absolute head turners. Made with materials derived from their privately-owned flocks of saved sheep and goats, the meticulously made Izzy Lane collections represent quality construction, superior materials, and a sense of style that is truly unique. With an assortment of styles for both men and women, Izzy Lane promises to infuse a special respect and appreciation for animals into every gorgeous item.
Stewart+Brown’s autumn 2010 collection was inspired by the Native American tradition of Vision Quest—an individual’s spiritual journey through nature to seek life direction. With a spotlight on earthy hues and landscape-inspired patterns, this collection was created to represent a balance between inner and outer beauty. Materials such as organic cotton, yak down, merino wool and premium environmentally friendly knits merge to create a perfectly balanced amalgamation of comfort and beauty.
Edun deposits a little edginess into the mix with a street wear infused direction in design and color. Founded on a commitment to encourage trade with Africa, Edun styles are inspired by the beautiful landscapes of the continent and are also produced in several regions of Africa, supporting local economies and representing a key role in the advance of those areas. For a street savvy, more contemporary look, shop Edun styles and support Africa!
Last but certainly not least, Humm is a new ‘designed in England’ brand, delivering a collection featuring chunky knits, capes, ponchos and accessories made from fine alpaca wool by Peruvian artisans. This season, Humm collaborated with Brandon Mably of Kaffe Fasset Studio to produce stunning limited edition checkerboard patterned pieces. Named after the humming sound alpacas sing to one another when they are happy, Humm offers styles for men, women and girls in a wide variation of colors, patterns and cuts, all designed to keep you cozy through the fall and winter seasons.
