I don't know about anyone else, but I am totally loving sweaters this season! I recently went thrifting and HAD to get every single one!

There are plenty of styles of sweaters that are trending right now that are all over vinted!

1. Chunky Sweaters 

This thick chunky burnt orange colored sweater is so versatile and can be worn with anything! Just throw this on over top of a cute top and some skinny jeans and you are good to go! @chic_statements

2. Longline Sweaters

Long duster kimonos are perfect for those days where you just want to be cozy and comfortable! @makenziepauline

3. Cable knit sweaters 

Vintage Chunky cable knit sweaters are great for cold days! Wear them with a pair of skinny jeans, some boots, and throw on your winter coat over top! I've been seeing them all over pinterest and cannot get enough of them! This one is from my closet!

4. Oversized sweaters 

There is nothing more comfy than a long oversized sweater! And this free people nordic sweater is seriously everything!!! @kyleebee

5. Cropped sweaters 

Cropped sweaters are great for all the people further down south who never hit freezing temperatures! This one is from urban outfitters and is adorable! @laura1717

Vinted is filled with sweaters this season! A lot of these sellers have some awesome bundle discounts that can save you money especially with shipping! You can never just buy one sweater!

This week we are featuring new Vintie and French blogger and body positivity advocate, Manon Edwards, of Chic With Curves fame. Manon is originally from Marseille, a small city in the South of France - two years ago, she decided to embark on a fabulous American adventure and has been living in LA ever since.

Tell us about your journey to becoming a blogger/influencer.

At the beginning it was just a hobby, since I was passionate by writing and blogging. I always had been concerned about the struggles of loving fashion and being plus sized, since I’m a size 16, so I decided to write especially about body acceptance. Even if my focus isn’t specifically fashion, I want to show that loving yourself AND loving fashion is totally possible, no matter your size! Once I started writing about this, a lot of brands contacted me, loving my energy and my fight against the negative image of plus size and fashion, so I began my social media accounts and become a freelance blogger influencer.

You have a strong message of body positivity - how did you come to be so confident and comfortable in your skin?

It’s been a long journey. It started after I broke up with my first love, because he wanted me to fit in with HIS standards of beauty, not mine. I told him enough, that I’ve cried too many times, that I’ve tried to change myself for somebody else too many times, and that I want to be happy with who I really am! It was still not easy to really come to loving myself after this, but I decided to keep a positive outlook on life and my body.

How would you describe your style?

I do not have a specific style - that’s another part of my identity. I really encourage women to wear absolutely whatever they want, no matter their size. If you’re happy and feeling beautiful, that’s the best way to find your “fashion style.” So my own style actually  depends on my current mood! Sometimes I’m more preppy chic, sometimes more rock and casual, but I admit I’m in love with mixing different styles in one look - for example, a sexy chic dress and camo shirt with casual sneakers!

What is the biggest difference between French fashion and LA fashion?

The biggest difference is the choice! In LA (and the US, as a whole) even if you are plus size, if you want to go on the mall, you can also find some trendy stores with fashionable plus size clothes, like Lovesick, Torrid, Forever21 plus etc. In France, unfortunately, it’s still tough to find places that carry plus sizes in store. Some stores, like H&M, offer a maternity section but who said that being plus size means you want to wear maternity clothing? As well, if a store specializes in plus size in France, it usually is not trendy clothing aimed at older women. While styles and trends are international, for the most part, the selection and availability of plus size options is the key difference between the US and France.

What are you most looking forward to for fall fashion?

I’m loving jeans that are super destroyed on the knees or with destroyed fringes at the bottom, which I saw on the runways last year! I also am looking forward to over-the-knee boots and the classic lace up dress or top.

You recently joined Vinted and even came to our Vinted Goes Vintage event! What do you love about being a member of Vinted?

I’m in love with the fact that it’s really fast and easy to post your clothes for sale - every option is already set up, you just have to chose yours, upload a photo and that’s it! But what I prefer the most is that you can really find some great deals, and it’s specifically for clothes, shoes, accessories and fashion!

Every now and then, we like to give you a nudge in the right direction. On the fence on what to sell this month? The numbers don’t lie and this is what Vinties are currently looking for.

 

Jeans: A staple, do we really need to introduce it? With all the shapes available today, yesterday’s jeans will be someone else’s treasure.

 

Boho trend: Vinties are looking for boho garments! Must be the changing seasons...

 

Nike trainers: We all love Nike trainers, but with all the new models coming out, we sometimes get tired of ours, while they’ll make another girl happy!


Good luck and don’t forget to share what you’re selling (or buying)!

That’s it. There’s no denying it, Autumn is here, and it’s not going to get warmer for another six months. Super into all the new stuff you see popping up in stores and on your favourite shopping apps (ahem…) but not keen to buy a whole new wardrobe? Your summer staples get a cold weather update below.

 

That cami top or slip dress you’ve been wearing for a few seasons? Give it a fresh look by wearing a white or contrasting, fitted t-shirt underneath. Warmer, more directional, and you don’t run the risk of flashing anyone.

 

Not ready to give up on your favourite mules or sandals yet? Get super cozy by wearing them with socks. If you’re not ready to live your best hippie life, we suggest against the sock and Birkenstock combo. Instead, try fine knit, glitter, or mesh socks. They work best with delicate, strappy shoes, or even stilettos.

 

Your favourite sundress? It gets a new life with an oversized cardigan. The fuzzier, softer and more loose-knit, the better. The key is in the contrast, so if the dress you wore all summer has a flower print, a grungy grey or black will be its best match, whereas a lace or crochet dress will work better with a clashing colour.

 

The denim jacket you lived in? View it as a layering piece. Worn like a cardigan, it works surprisingly well under a leather biker jacket or a longer coat. Bonus points if you let the denim cuffs peek from the sleeves of the outerwear you’ve chosen.

 

The wrap dress you’ve adopted? Will you be horrified if we suggest wearing it over jeans? Instead of going the early 00’s route, treat that crossover dress like a kimono jacket and use it to cover a more basic t-shirt and jeans outfit. See if you prefer leaving the dress open at the front or if wrapping is necessary, then complete the look with heels and voila!
