Stuff We Love: Vicarious by Nature

By: Anne Vickman

We’re big fans of scrappy-yet-polished clothing. California-based designer Vicarious by Nature sells organic cotton wares and employs an eco-friendly business model by supporting certified vendors and partnerships with nonprofits like the Ocean Conservation Society and EcoNation.

We love comfy, all-cotton clothes; and now that the cost of the fabric of our lives is soaring, we’re stocking up while we still can. VbN’s super-cozy Eggnog Cardigan, which comes in cocoa or eggplant, looks great paired with a dress and belt for the office, or over a camisole with jeans on the weekend. It’s soft and versatile — two of our favorite things when it comes to getting dressed. Added bonus? We scored a compliment from one of our most fashionable coworkers. No further proof of style needed.
