My search for a cozy oversized sweater for winter was a toughie. I just wanted something simple. The high-end stuff cost four figures, and the low-end stuff are made from weird acrylic blends. When this Victoria Beckham sweater popped up on The RealReal, it was a no-brainer. You see, I stalk VB stuff on The Real Real. And I’m still stalking stuff from that Fall 2016 collection.
If you don’t know what The Real Real is, I mentioned it in this post about dressing ethically for holiday parties. They’re an online consignment store selling second-hand luxury goods so they’reÂ sustainable. Buying secondhand is not only more affordable, it’s the most sustainable way to shop for fashion.
It’s been a cold winter so far. Since this wool turtleneck is the warmest sweater I own now, I’ve been wearing it a lot. While this particular style doesn’t pop up too often, see more secondhand designer turtlenecks here. There are over a thousand options, but you can filter by size, colour, designer, etc.
Victoria Beckham is an ethical brand because she keeps her production in Britain, but I don’t want to pay over a grand on a sweater. Other brands besides VB that I stalk on The RealReal are The Row, Stella McCartney, Maiyet, and Edun, and they all happen to be ethical.
My Ethical Outfit
SWEATER â€” VICTORIA BECKHAM FALL ’16 (sold out. see other turtlenecks on The RealReal)
JEANS â€” REFORMATION HIGH & SKINNY JEANS, DANUBE WASH
PURSE â€” VINTAGE, STELLA LUNA
The purse is vintage and probably from the 1960s. I marathoned the show The Marvelous Mrs. MaiselÂ recently (go watch!). The wardrobe is a dream, and this purse is something Mrs. Maisel would own.
