Temperatures have dropped significantly in the last few weeks and the days are getting shorter and shorter. There is nothing better for this time of year than some cosy, comfortable clothes, but the cold weather is not a reason to stay home! Maybe you need a snug outfit to visit sustainable and ethical open markets, or for going out shopping for Christmas presents in local shops. Get inspired by Adwoa Aboah’s bang on, casual look, and check out the pieces I put together from conscious and ethical brands to help you recreate it.
