Down Stole by Nau
Nau‘s gorgeous quilted stole (top image) is the perfect marriage between old-world charm and modern simplicity. The elegant lines and simple design are perfect for strolling in the city or making your way to a business meeting, while the sustainably sourced down filling will keep you warm on blustery days. Pair it with a maxi skirt and heeled boots as shown above, or don a pair of skinny fit slacks and knee-high boots for an avant-garde look. The entire shell is made from 100 percent recycled polyester, and you can choose from a grey plaid pattern or a subtle striped pattern in either dark grey or dark khaki.
Sanctuary Jacket by The North Face
This sleek and sporty jacket from The North Face is the ideal choice for taking you from the office to the gym or yoga class on those chilly Fall evenings. Feminine but tough, this hooded coat is made from 88 percent recycled polyester and features wind-resistant fabric, an adjustable hood, hand pockets and a special pocket for securing your phone or keys on an early morning jog. The upper half of the hoodie jacket is made from a soft-shell polyester while the bottom half is a fitted jersey knit that will keep your torso warm and your movement unhindered.
Plottwist Parka by hornytoad
Fun, casual and trendy, hornytoad‘s down-to-earth design aesthetic is perfectly personified in the simple and Scottish inspired Plottwist Parka. Chillier late Fall and early Winter days and nights call for more coverage, which are accomplished through a storm flap closure, stand-up hood, handwarmer pockets. The figure-flattering cut and waist accentuating drawstring are feminine and chic while the hemp, organic cotton and recycled polyester fabric blend will keep you dry with its non-toxic water repellent finish.
Aliso Down Jacket by Patagonia
Patagonia‘s Aliso Down Jacket is the top choice for colder climates and the oncoming Winter months. The asymmetrical quilting pattern pairs up with bomber jacket styling for a vintage meets modern jacket that looks as cool as it will keep you warm. The shell is made from water-repellent, 100 percent recycled polyester and filled with sustainably sourced down, while design features include gathered ribbing at the hem and cuffs, a wind flap, and an insulated hood to seal in the heat and take you through the frostiest weeks.
