Kimono dress from Elsien Gringhuis. Isn’t it nice when something can be worn several ways? This one can. Opening in front or opening in back? Feel the mood and choose based on that. Good large pocket to dig your hands into. Customize size if you need to or choose one of the pre-set sizes.
2. The Shoes
Lemon Zest pumps from Guava. These are for showing of and probably (if you are not an extremely skilled heel-walker demands bicycle or taxi. But what are great show-off shoes like these without the specialized constructed heel from Guava? It is the icing on the cake and what makes them really 100 % perfect.
3. The Backpack
Backpack with tassels in Dove Pink from Kokosina. Classic and practical, still fashionable and easy to take from day to night. We love the tassel bags, and recommend, if you don’t particularly like this colour; check out the other tasselbags – maybe there is one there for you.
4. The Earrings
The Usha Earrings from A/bareness. Boho to the bone, but does not require an embroidered dress to fit inn. Actually, it goes with almost anything. Bring out your streetwear and match with these babies. Trust us; they have the right kind of bling to them.
5. The socks
Vera Socks from Swedish Stockings. These babies are currently out of stock, but will soon be back, so we add them to the list (it is off course a REASON for them being out of stock – they are bang on this summer for trainers or heels..any shoes). Let us know if you want to be notified when it is back in stock.
The Norwegian bloggers and advocates for fashion with compassion, Joakim Kleven and Frida Ottesen made this BEAUTIFUL editorial with styles from our store. Take a look! And check out the pages of these talented young stylish people! They are the future and they set the standard for what they want fashion to be! We salute them!
If you are anything like us, you love playing around with style, and wear some key pieces in many ways. So if you should invest in a pair of fairly produced high quality boots, you would need some style options to get the most out of them. Here are our style suggestions. One pair – million wears. At least!
Scroll through the gallery below for styling inspiration on how to wear you boots and where to get good luxe pieces to go with them.
And remember, all designers we mention who are not part of Just Fashion are to us known for consistent quality and care for how they make their products. Therefore the following style suggestions should be good for the planet, though we can only count for the details of our own designers.
These are the boots.
Made by hand in Portugal, in a small family owned factory. It is in fact so small that half of Amorina&Mia’s collection is Made to Order (produced after ordering).
Not an easy-fast way of doing things, but a really environmental one.
Like a woman.
Wear with short dresses or skirts.
This is a fail-safe way of adding a grungy tough to femininity. We feel that short skirt and dresses can be too pretty sometimes. In the second we add a pair of flat boots, we feel grounded.
Wear with a dress over shirt-combo.
Keep the dress knitted or woolly, and add a feminine lightweight shirt. This style, if dress is not to short, will also work really well for the office.
Layering wool the grungy way.
Wear with long oversized coats.
It’s slouchy and cool. Layer fine knits underneath; add a belt or several jewelries in different lengths.
Inspired by the past.
Wear with a billowing flower dress.
On top, wear a short shearling or wool jacket. It’s easy to tweak to a 70’s look, but is also channeling the femi-grunge of the 90’s with a shorter dress and stockings. Change out the shoulder strap with an old guitar strap, and you are ready to go.
Wear with long narrower skirt or dress grazing or covering your boots.
This look is buttoned up from heel to toe, with a long skirt and long coat or with a cropped sweater or jacket that emphasizes your waist. It has a hint of the 60’s and the 70’s, but is still a modern take on a boots /skirt look.
“For us sustainability means respecting people and the environment in everything we do”
Norwegian Rain Noir Femme Trench
This trench is windproof, waterproof (this one actually IS waterproof) and made out of recycled material to begin with. It’s made to last a lifetime! It is also possible to buy in a version with warm padding if you want to use it during wintertime.
“We work hard to be as environmentally friendly as possible. By teaming up with leading eco conscious suppliers in the industry, Norwegian Rain aims to amplify the positive spiral of people working together to overcome the climatical challenges we are upon”
“Stella Jean collaborates with African and Haitian artisans, based on the principle of increase in value, economic impact and respect for the territory, resources and traditions of the local communities who must be supported, while at the same time preserving ancestral knowledge – at risk of extinction – and opposing the debasing effect of imperialist homogenisation”
This trench is part of Edun’s Resort 17 collection and since they do not have their own webshop we suggest you ask them where to get it if you are interested:)
“In respect of its mission to source production and encourage trade in Africa, EDUN mixes its modern designer vision with the richness and positivity of this fast-growing continent. EDUN is building long-term, sustainable growth opportunities by supporting manufacturers, community-based initiatives and partnering with African artists and artisans”
Lastly, if you REALLY are going to invest, we want to take the company that is the epitome of trenches into account…
If you look closely, you find that some of the heritage trenches from Burberry, the classic ones that will live on forever, with details and tradition that no-one else can show for, is actually produced in England. As mentioned we do not know the details, but this should imply that the conditions are good and that there are craftsmen and educated workers involved. You can also get your initials engraved in the coat. Our favourites are..

The wine red palette
Red is everywhere for fall and both the thin and thick variant of the black stockings, with or without pattern, works brilliantly with red. Here, travel writer, editor and founder of Frukostfolket Hanna Stefansson shows of an outfit with only red tones and black stockings.

All Swedish Stockings are made using recycled nylon thread, in factories that leave no waste behind, use solar panels and energy efficient machines in the production and have full water rinsing systems, so that water can flow back into nature.
The wrap is such a simple and transformative piece of clothing, and this season there are so many ways to style it.
We, off course present the good ones, produced for you personally in organic chemical free cotton, and possible to adjust and tweek if you need to. These wrap models will last for years to come, easy to transform through changing trends and even quite easy to wear through changing body shapes.
Like seen at Edeline Lee with classic narrow pants…
So, secondly, how to wear it?
These pieces have, like the trend, plunging necklines and are quite low cut in front. If you don’t like showing off to much, we suggest either changing the cut when ordering yours (it’s easy and costs €21 to get a total customization of the fit, with good instructions by phone or mail), or you can use a top or statement underwear underneath.
Here are our best styling tips for getting lots and lots of wear out of your dress!
Style tip 1: Wear something under
Keep it deep, but wear something underneath.
Inspired by the other V-necks at the catwalk, we imagined it could be a fitness body or tank top…
Or a loose strap singlet…
Do it the lingerie way, show off whats under, over… like seen on several catwalks this spring..
Style tip 2: Wear something over
Style with a bomber.
…or a sweater
Style tip 3, Style it up
Let the jewelry do the talking.
We’ve seen lots of pearls, it fits the clean cut of a wrap perfectly, but also a statement necklace that plays on, and ads to the v-cut, works great!
Or take the top to another level with a real plunging neckline, as seen at Michael Kors….
Style tip 4: Relax in it, and be inspired by new grunge!
Wear with slightly open wrap and relaxed sandals, loafers or sneakers…

Swedish Stockings have been collaborators of ours for some years now, and to follow their thorough process of becoming circular in their production is truly inspiring. If you don’t know their stockings yet, we suggest you try.
They are made out of recycled polyester (considered to be waste), made at water saving factories, with their own cleaning system, zero waste guarantee, and solar panel energy-use. It’s really impressive.
Here, green-liver Meilin Hyde shows her classic style with one of the thicker models in black.
Wear several at once. Like with the stack rings from Abareness. There are several versions, all handmade in a small workshop in Nepal. Stack rings are brilliant for bringing new life to old rings as well. Try it!

Like Luiza. Her Instagram is also something to follow! Real colour-boost inspiration!
She wears a yellow backpack from Kokosina. Handmade for you personally after you order it, and made in their studios in Latvia or Italy. Take a look at the wide range of colours in the leather. You are bound to find your favorite here! Leather is guaranteed from livestock, where whole animal is used for food purposes.
The suit is always an investment. Not only does it work dresses up as an ensemble, but also, it is great to wear as separates, as blazer and pants with casual tops, denim, sweatpants etc. Perfect for a casual cool look.
We’ve collected some people who look both flawless and cool in their suits. Stylists, fashion insiders and creative’s with their own style, mixed up with our eco suggestions from our luxury handmade label Kerber. Masculine or feminine, their suits come in mix-and-match models to choose from, and they last a lifetime.

Mix masculinity and femininity.
Comfy waist, cropped legs and a longer jacket. Feminine and masculine in one, elevates the feeling of effortlessness. Choose a loose singlet or t-shirt underneath to dress up or down. The keyword is loose. Like Kasia Smutniak, in a white Armani suit, with red lips and tousled hair.
Our feminine/masculine (conscious) suggestion:
Kerber Comfy Pants, (1.997 NOK (no added expences) Norway /€168 rest of the world)
Kerber Business Jacket (2.979 NOK (no added expences) Norway, €250 rest of the world)
Elevate length with loose legs.
You don’t need to wear a traditional colour to look chick. Like Miroslava Duma does here in a perfect blue Stella McCartney suit, worn with a casual braid and classic white shirt.
