There’s a lot to love about Seattle-made KAVU’s line of Northwest-chic clothing and accessories. The made-in-the-U.S.A. clothes are consistently stylish while also being relatively practical for the outdoors. You probably won’t summit Mount Everest in a KAVU shirt, but you’ll look great at a picnic on the beach or on a leisurely bike ride.


This winter, KAVU released a line of fetching items for men and women. Among the standout tops for women are the Heidi Henley, Desolate Zip and the Boy Fran. Though sold out on KAVU’s website due to their enormous popularity, you can still find these shirts through other retailers.


The Heidi Henley is a super-soft Henley-style shirt that comes in green, grey and pink. The curved hem ensures the shirt is flattering while still giving you comfortable coverage — it won’t ride up when you bend over, in other words. The shirt is designed to accentuate curves without being extremely tight.


The Desolate Zip continues KAVU’s tradition of women’s half-zip shirts. These shirts have a thicker material with the company’s trademark reverse cuff sleeves. This season’s winter pattern is reminiscent of a Norwegian sweater, with its black-and-white snowflake-like pattern.


And the Boy Fran shirt is designed to be a loose-fitting garment, but still flattering with its scoop neck design. The shirt is extremely soft and wonderful to be swallowed up in, as long as you can pull off the oversized design.
