Ethical Bloggers Share Their Favorite Wardrobe Items
We all have tried-and-true pieces in our wardrobe- the garments or accessories that we keep on constant rotation, the ones that have lasted through many seasons and fads, the ones that never fail to make us feel comfortable and put-together.
Ethical fashion pieces can be an investment- after all, ensuring higher worker wages and better quality materials is what ethical fashion is all about. We asked ethical bloggers to share their best, "I'd buy it again" sustainable fashion finds. Enjoy exploring these ethical brands that come highly recommended!
Blogger: Christy of Beyond the Fried
Item: Leather Nisolo Tote
"I've used my leather Nisolo tote almost every day for over two years. The tote was my first significant investment in an ethically-made item; I debated purchasing it for over a year while I compared features, saved money, and decided whether it was the right purchase for me. The tote has survived festivals, playgrounds, and countless coffee shops, and keeps looking better with age!"
Blogger: Angela of Sasstainable Style
Item: Laura Siegal Poncho
"I love my poncho by Laura Siegel! I watched this float down the runway at her fashion show, before I nabbed it in a sample sale in 2014. I'm literally counting down the days until it's cold here in Toronto so I can wear it again. It's such an amazing versatile piece. Laura is remarkable for her commitment to working with artisans through fair trade to create incredible collections - I always say you can see the hand of the maker in her designs."
Blogger: Cait Bagby of World Threads Traveler
Item: Cue Clothing Panel Top
"My most loved eco item has to be this panel top from Cue Clothing. Their designs are different from anything else I have seen in the industry possessing a modern feminine edge, which is true to my style. While keeping in mind cutting edge designs they also don't fall short on ethics, being accredited by the Ethical Clothing Australia. I wear it all year long often pairing it with Everlane's Street Fleece Pants."
Blogger: Hanna Pumfrey of Flor+Cesta
Item: People Tree Jumpsuit
"My people tree jumpsuit was an investment but one that was well worth it! I dress it up for work or drinks with the girls with block sandals or down for a weekend stroll with my Veja pumps. Although technically a summer item I get wear from it throughout the year by adding a Zola Amour poncho to it in fall or a chunky knit sweater from Frisur and boots in the winter."
Blogger: Hannah Theisen of Life+Style+Justice
Item: Sseko Designs Loafers
"I've had these loafers for years, wear them many times each week, and they are still going strong! They're a classic style and I know that I'll be able to wear them for a lifetime, perhaps with a new set of soles or a repair or two down the road. To me, it's such an important element of ethical fashion to purchase items that I can maintain and wear for many years."
