Morning ladies.  I can't believe another month has whizzed by so quickly & it's already time to take a look at my top ten picks from Baukjen's latest collection.  But before we start I wondered if you were aware that Baukjen are a sustainable brand, who are a member of the Fashion Pact & are B Corp certified?  Neither did I until recently.  

So what does it mean?  Well firstly their mission is to put people & the planet at the heart of everything they do.  With the aim of driving lasting positive change in the fashion industry with sustainable practices & an ethnical supply chain.  

I think we can all agree that a lot of us have started to make more considered purchases both due to the environment & the uncertainly & crazy times this year has brought.  One of the things I love about Baukjen (apart from the fact you know you're going to get a high quality, well designed piece) is that they create timeless clothing.  Pieces that can be intermixed & will stand the test of time. 

Part of their core values is not only social responsibility & sustainability but also transparency so us as the consumer can see who they are, what they stand for & also who makes their clothes.  As an off shot of this Baukjen provide an equal, inclusive & safe environment for their employees & believe that every one of them should feel valued & respected.

Something else I didn't realise but as part of their social responsibility Baukjen also support charities, recycle & donate to develop a circular textile economy.  Every year they give at least 10% of their profits to charity, including women's shelters, Women's Aid & Save The Children.  Plus you can even send back your old Baukjen clothing & they will ensure it is sustainably recycled.  

Along side this Baukjen use many natural fibres in their fabrics, only source wool from farms practising safe sheep husbandry methods & work with their mills to reduce the amount of water consumption & pollution.  Plus as I briefly mentioned in last month's post (see here) some of their fabrics are made from recycled clothing & their packaging is 100% plastic free, recyclable & biodegradable. For more details on the changes Baukjen have made & are continuing to make see here.

In the meantime let's get back to their latest collection & the pieces to have caught my eye.  Firstly with winter fast approaching who doesn't love a chunky cosy knit & Baukjen have some great offerings this season.  Starting with the above jumper, which is also available in navy blue here.

If you love your leather/wax coated leggings as much as me then a longer length jumper is a real wardrobe staple & the above one in camel is perfect for teaming with all our wardrobe neutrals.

You probably don't need me to explain why the above jumper has made it into my top ten - leopard print paired with sleeve detailing what's not to love?!

Equally a 'V' neck jumper such as the above is perfect for layering over a simple white shirt whether it be you classic collared number or even one with a frill neckline.

We can probably all agree that a simple 'A' line leather skirt is always going to be in fashion - whether dressed down with a cosy knit as shown above or paired with a pretty statement top for a night out.

Then of course you have the little black dress - the 'go to', dress it up & dress it down number that will never let you down.  I just love the detailing on Baukjen's Palmer dress above - the statement sleeve, the tummy flattering pleat detailing & the slimming 'V' neckline all make it a very stylish number that will flatter all body shapes.

For a more everyday style you can't beat a throw it on maxi dress that can be teamed with a leather biker jacket & trainers, as well as dress up with heeled sock boots & a blazer.

Of course every great outfit also needs stylish timeless accessories such as the above leather clutch that will add a subtle injection of colour to many an outfit & is the sort of accessory that will only bet better with age & time.

Finally whether you find yourself spending more time at home & dressing accordingly or are a gym buddy then stylish loungewear is a must.  I just love the above fleece for throwing over your gym kit whilst on the school run or running errands.

Plus it would be perfect for pairing with the above longline sweatshirt.

Back to today & I've wearing a couple of new gifted pieces from Baukjen that I'm in love with.  Like I mentioned earlier I love my leather & faux leather leggings/trousers so a chunky longer length jumper is one of my 'must haves' for this time of year & you know how I have a huge weakness for a stripe!  In terms of sizing I went with my normal size (an 8) in the jumper & because I like my bretons to be on the oversized side I decided to size up to a 10.
