3 Must Have Slow Fashion Sweaters from Zady

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

Slow is the new black.

There is something deeply appealing about the slow fashion movement. Thoughtful designs that transcend trend. Luxurious materials acquired from sustainable sources. A manufacturing process that steers clear of toxins, is kind to the environment, and treats workers with dignity (and a living wage). Who doesn’t want to open their closet and see these admirable qualities on full display?

The rise of the slow fashion movement has resulted in a strong group of labels that are producing truly gorgeous clothing. This isn’t your mother’s eco-conscious fashion; this is sustainable luxury. Like Zady. Their Essentials Collection is unbelievable. All nine pieces are worth the investment, starting with these three must-have sweaters…

This slouchy, lightweight alpaca sweater comes in three gorgeous neutral shades: charcoal, heather grey, and this rich caramel. Wear it with everything from weekend jeans, to workday cropped trousers, to layered over a silk slip dress for evening.
