What are you wearing this season? For winter 2022-23, we’re gathering all our favorite sweaters and adding easy layers for spending cozy moments at home with our loved ones. We’re also embracing a little optimism (or perhaps inviting it?) with some shine—whether on our accessories or as a subtle highlighter on our cheeks.

The below mood board features some of our favorite responsible brands, featuring layer-friendly basics and unique textures and shapes we can mix and match. From our vintage combat boots (or the ones we just thrifted!) to the sweats that have only become more comfortable in the decade we’ve had them, here’s what trends inspire our outfits this season.
