UpWest is a clothing brand I stumbled upon recently, whose slogan “Soft clothes, strong people” totally caught my eye. After a little try-on session, I’m now a huge fan. Their clothing comes together like a perfectly curated summer vacation capsule wardrobe…with a twist. Instead of the usual tropical prints and flowy dresses, the vibe is much more après-hiking in Taos or Jackson Hole. Shockingly, the price points are under $100 (and many are under $50!).
In short, it’s exactly what I want to wear this summer.
Tomboy-Chic: UpWest Has Your Cute & Comfy Capsule Wardrobe
Since I put in my order, UpWest has — happily!! — expanded their line of sustainable pieces, check them out here. They also carry guys’ clothes, but I was too focused on mahself to snag anything for Mike. Yet. Father’s Day is around the corner (and this looks like him).
Let’s Start With The Outfit I’ve Barely Taken Off
I’m obsessed with the boyish fit of this tee, coupled with a sexy v-neckline. It comes in three colors, and I’ll likely be snapping up all three. And these darn shorts are dead-ringers for the Vince pair I’ve been stalking for weeks now, and couldn’t be happier with them.
A Comfy Striped Top
This was simply one of those tops too comfy and too easy to take off. It has a banded string tie bottom, which means I’ll be throwing it on over a bikini at the beach, too.
Tie-Waist (Matching) Sweatshirt
If you’re snapping up the shorts —and I highly recommend that you do — this is the matching sweatshirt. I didn’t keep it simply because my NADAAM hoodie also matches the shorts (close enough, anyway — see next pic).
Let’s Talk More About These White Sweatshorts
As I mentioned above, the shorts match my NADAAM hoodie so I can check ‘matching set’ off the list. But the photo on the right (below) is the other way I’ve been wearing these shorts. Suddenly beige jersey knit shorts are a hit — who knew?
These **SUSTAINABLE** Chambray Shorts
These seriously comfy shorts are made from sustainable Lyocell, and I LOVE the fit. The waistband, thankfully, wasn’t horrifyingly tight, even on my soft stomach. These shorts are SO comfy to wear.
Also In A Striped Summer Set….
The same shorts (above) also come in a linen stripe. I like the fresh feel of this set.
I also found the striped top really cute on its own! Digging the ’70s vibes of this thing.
A Cute & Comfy Sweatshirt Dress
There are so many things to love about this dress. First of all, the dress appears fitted, but is actually pretty loose across the stomach. The fitted part is at the shoulders, which keeps the dress looking sleek without having to be skintight. Second, the pockets are perfectly placed, and third, I love the flattering sleeves. The fact that this dress is made out of the same material as the sweat-shorts (SO COMFY) doesn’t hurt, either.
On the below left, I’m wearing the XS, on the below right, I’m wear a size small. The small is a little roomier and a little longer.

I love discovering new brands, and I’m reallllly excited about this one. If you guys end up trying UpWest, let me know what you think. Or send pics!!!! We love pics.
