It’s already November, which means this post is probably a little late and I’m sure you’ve got your cold-weather outerwear sorted. However if there is a gap in your fall/winter wardrobe, this might just be the post for you! Here are my top picks for the season when it comes to sustainable and ethical coats and jackets.

Sustainable Fall Coats
I’m a huge fan of Tradlands. They offer quality staples for your wardrobe, and this chore coat is no exception. I picture it layered over long sleeve tops and jumpsuits for fall.
I personally own this liner and it’s definitely been my most-worn piece of outerwear this season. It’s warm, cozy, and the easiest thing to slip over chunky sweaters for chilly weather. It also works well to add warmth under another jacket, like a rain shell.
Who doesn’t love a good shacket for fall? I love the relaxed fit of this corduroy version from Able, and it’s definitely the most perfect colour for this time of year.
This kind of jacket is such a fall staple for me. I’ve a very similar one in my closet for years (an old fast fashion version) and I still get a lot of wear out of it to this day. This one from Pact is made from organic cotton that uses no toxic chemicals and 81% less water to produce than conventional cotton.
A trench coat is a fall wardrobe workhorse that’s pretty much guaranteed to never go out of style. I love the relaxed fit and details like the storm flaps on this version from Everlane.
Sustainable Winter Coats
Plaid isn’t really my thing, but for some reason I’m really drawn to this recycled wool coat from Frank & Oak. The silhouette is so flattering and I think the colours through the pattern are really wearable and neutral. It’s also built for winter layering and is wind- and water-resistant.
I’ve had a charcoal grey, tailored wool coat on my wish list for what seems like ages now. This one from Sézane is gorgeous and is made from a recycled wool blend.
This coat looks like the ultimate in comfort! For those of us who want to stay cuddled up under the covers all day long, I think this duvet coat from Everlane would do the trick.
