Are you, Gems, as excited about Fall Dressing as I am? To me, perfect fall pieces have to be versatile and be easy to layer up or down depending on the weather. Corduroy, knits and cashmere are some of my go-to materials when preparing for either a walk in the park or cozying up at home. Free Assembly, Walmart’s latest foray into elevated essentials fashion, shares my fall fashion needs. Launched in September, Free Assembly carries knitwear, chore jackets, utility pants, blazers, denim and other everyday basics that should be a foundation of every well-thought-out closet.
For this look, I was inspired by the mustard and brown colors of the 70’s mustard and browns colors and corduroy, a super-easy to care for and strong material that everyone wore – from the hippie counter-culture to the Hollywood stars. I started with a pair of corduroy wide-leg utility pants in buckwheat, added a turtleneck tunic sweater in the same hue and threw on a corduroy chore jacket, perfect for running chores on a sunny Fall morning, all from Free Assembly. A pair of knee-high boots in rusty snake print sealed this look for me.
And the best part is that with Free Assembly you don’t have to break the bank to get quality pieces. Starting at $13 for some lighter tops and skirts to only $45 for a boyfriend blazer, and $27 denim. And according to Free Assembly’s website, their denim is made mostly from organic cotton and is “washed using techniques that encourage reduced water usage“, produced in “LEED certified facilities, which encourage energy and resource efficiencies“, factories that are also “Fair Trade certified, which means they aim to provide safe working conditions and build sustainable livelihoods for workers“. Combined with unbeatable pricing, it’s something you can feel good about wearing.
