The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and the cozy sweaters are out!
It’s officially that time of the year, friends. Fall is here! With the weather cooling, I’m in desperate search of all things cozy, cute and sustainable to fill my closet with. As you guys know, I’m trying my best to introduce more sustainable fashion brands into my wardrobe. While it’s been quite the challenge, I have found the 75/25 approach to work best for me! (A little something I came up with to help me balance shopping sustainably…)
The 75/25 approach means I strive for 25% of my purchases to be sustainable. Of course, the goal is to eventually flip the balance so sustainable finds make up the majority of my purchases. But this helps keeps things realistic for me!
The Sustainability Cheat Sheet
To recap from our summer sustainable fashion guide post, when shopping “sustainable”, you need to look for one or more of these things:
- Find pieces made with recycled or renewable materials
- Look for brands with eco-friendly manufacturing processes
- Support brands with ethical labor practices
- Shop second-hand items
- Avoid “fast fashion” brands
With these rules in mind, I curated a lookbook of some of my favorite pieces for this season. Check out our sustainable fashion guide for fall 2020 below!

Tops & Sweaters
Bottoms & Dresses
Shoes & Accessories
Hope you guys liked these sustainable fall finds!
Remember, investing in higher quality brands is everything when it comes to sustainability. You want to add pieces to your wardrobe that can sustain YEARS of wear! The goal is to lengthen the lifecycle of a piece as much as possible. So while sustainable fashion may seem a bit pricey (and I totally agree it is), it is worth the investment if it means you create less waste in the environment. Especially if we’re keeping to our 75/25 rule! 😉
