Eco-Friendly Alternatives to Fall’s Top Trends

Some of the top contenders for fall’s hottest trends include plaid trousers, faux fur cheetah print coats, white boots, satin, neon knits, and statement pants. Now, all these things can be found at fast fashion stores like ASOS, Urban Outfitters, even Forever21, but comparable items can be found second hand and from sustainable brands at price points to suit a variety of budgets. Let’s look at some of our options.

For the sake of practicality, I will rate the items based on price using a system of dollar signs:

  • $0-49 will be rated $
  • $50-99 will be rated $$
  • $100+ will be rated $$$
