Unboxing FIG Clothing’s 2016 Fall/Winter Collection
I felt like I was back-to-school-shopping. But instead of getting a new wardrobe for class, I was getting one for travel. In case you haven’t already noticed me wearing the clothes in my posts and videos, FIG Clothing has made me one of their ambassadors and I wear the label all the time. The pieces are easy to wear: they’re smart, simple, comfortable, and stylish.
I’m really proud to represent this women’s travelwear brand. I already loved the quality of its clothing (which are all designed and made in Canada) as well as its values that promote community and creativity. FIG recently sent me a sampling from the fall/winter collect. The video below shows me unboxing my shipment and how the clothes look on.

Below is some more information the articles I received. Keep in mind that these garments come in a variety of colors:
The XEA top is an elevated, snuggly sweatshirt that is lined with fleece. It has a unique asymmetrical cut and ruching around the midsection – which is great for those travel days when you feel bloated from an unsteady diet and schedule.
The plaid YAN tunic is an update to my 90’s teenage self. The flannel fabric is soft and cozy – perfect for a crisp autumn day. It can be layered with a cami, long-sleeved tee, or turtleneck underneath for colder days. The top is long enough on me that I can pull it off as a shirt dress that would look cute with thick tights and boots.
The FAY dress has a cut that is universally flattering on any figured: from thin to voluptuous. The drawstring waist creates a flattering shape at the hips while the baggy top is forgiving. The hem ends just above the knees – elongating on women of any height.
The PIX shirt looked very different on than it did in the package. It has a structured collar that makes a statement but folds down easily. This style also comes in a dress version.
The AMO dress is another piece that complements almost every figure. This faux wrap dress does not completely come apart. Only the belt needs adjusting, which ensures the garment stays in tact. Fuller figured women may consider wearing it with a camisole as the plunging V-neck may be a little revealing.
The ONA tunic is an elegant top that incorporates some subtle but thoughtful details. It has that flattering gathered ruching around the midsection and a hoodie color. It’s a versatile piece that can easily be dressed up or down while on the go.
