What to Wear… to Dress Up a Sweatshirt

It’s officially autumn, which means it’s time to get cozy! Shopping for cruelty-free sweaters and jackets can seem a bit daunting at times, but don’t get discouraged – once you start looking you’ll realize that there are plenty of synthetic and cotton options that will keep you nice and toasty in the months to come. One of my favorite “accidentally vegan” trends happening right now is the fancy sweatshirt. Take a basic sweat, add embellishment, embroidery, or an amazing trompe l’oeil print like this one by Étoile Isabel Marant, and voilà – you’re ready to hit the town!








Play up the texture (or lack thereof) on this faux sweater by pairing it with vegan leather pants, a mixed media clutch, serious ear bling, and some killer heels… comfy has never looked quite so good!

Shop the look:

1. Hana Printed Cotton-Blend Jersey Sweatshirt – Étoile Isabel Marant

2. Imitation Leather Pants – H&M

3. Stone Left Ear Crawler – Jules Smith

4. Rope-Embroidered Faux Leather Clutch – Stella McCartney

5. To the Point Heel – Shoe Cult
