Autumn has arrived. What are you looking forward to? Hiking? Bonfires? Pumpkin patch photoshoots with the perfect insta caption? Easing into hibernation with warm tea and a good book? Hitting up every soon-to-be-trending eatery? Or maybe a little bit of all of the above?
Whatever your #fallmood, style it with ethical jewelry and handcrafted accessories. Here are our top picks for every fall personality type.
When that crisp, cool Autumn breeze comes calling, the Naturalist goes running. Literally and figuratively.
If you’re the person in your group who finds any excuse to get outside, you’re probably a Naturalist. Whether you’re taking a hike with your dog, touring a local nature reserve with friends, or choosing to walk to the restaurant simply because the weather is lovely, you’re just happy to be out in the fresh air.
The key to creating a natural look is to stick with natural materials. Sustainably sourced wood pendants with subtle brass inlay and accents can elevate even the most down-to-earth outfit. As a Naturalist, you’re always on the lookout for fashion that doesn’t just look great on you but that’s good for the planet, too. Bracelets that are eco-friendly look just as good on a sunny September stroll as they do at a chilly October bonfire.
The Experience Collector
Do you suffer from a bad case of FOMO? Are you always checking your phone for the next local event? Do you have a weekender bag in your home that is always either half packed or half unpacked, depending on the day? If so, you might be an Experience Collector.
One of the best things about fall is the constant stream of activities. There’s apple picking, bonfires with friends, farmer’s markets, tailgating, and cozy family game nights. Experience Collectors are renowned for always RSVPing yes and being ready to go at a moment’s notice so they don’t miss out on any fun. They’re also famous for showing up with flawless style.
If you’re always zooming from one event to the next, the best way to create a ‘go everywhere look’ is to keep it simple. Have a sturdy tote on hand to hold your camera, snacks, and water bottle.
Wear vibrant, no-fuss jewelry that is comfortable enough to wear all day and easy to switch as fast as the events on your calendar. And toss a packed weekender into your car just in case that one day adventure turns into a last-minute road trip.
The Todos los Santos Bag features huipil, a piece of traditional Mayan dress still worn by women in the Guatemalan highlands. The artisans of Ruth and Naomi, our fair trade partner in Guatemala, have found innovative ways to incorporate these vibrant designs into new accessories. As an experience collector, we’re sure you love celebrating craft and culture as much as we do!
