Sustainable Street Style: Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Sustainable Fashion cold weather

What do you wear when it gets Super Cold outside? You pile on lots and lots of layers.

I’ve been obsessed with this old army coat that has been upcycled–with the additional of vintage fur–into a chic, comfortable, neutral coat by Reformation. However, while the fur collar is warm and cozy, the rest of the coat is one light layer away from the elements. So I layered up with a flannel shirt from Buffalo Exchange  in the East Village, and a thick vintage sweater I found at LIC Flea this summer (love the gold buttons). The jeans are by Parke New York. They are premium selvedge made in the Garment District, and will last forever. The shoes I also found at Buffalo Exchange. They are such perfect basics! The leather gloves I bought from ASOS Green Room. (They were part of my fall shopping roundup.) And the one conventional part: the cashmere beanie from Club Monaco.
