Every year I like to add a few quality staples to my wardrobe! I gravitate towards a very minimalistic, almost capsule wardrobe, and don’t mind splurging on a sweater I know I’ll wear every day for years to come.
Intentionally choosing clothing brands and fabrics has become a top priority for me the past few years. There are so many hidden toxins and environmental waste in fabrics as well as unethical working conditions for makers!
My wardrobe is trending a bit cozy this season since I am pregnant but I know these staples will last for years to come!
Here’s my Capsule Wardrobe for Fall + Winter from last year too!
10 Sustainable Staples in My Fall Wardrobe
Reversible Knitted Wrap Coat \\ I’ve invested in one sweater from Cuyana the past few years and they do not disappoint. SO soft and something I don’t get sick of wearing daily. Their sweaters are closet staples that are Oeko-Tex certified and go with everything, day or night!
Chelsea Boots \\ These boots are made out of vegan leather and recycled materials. I love Chelsea boots because they go with everything! I also LOVE these soft chukka boots from Beek one of my go to brands for comfortable + sustainable shoes, they feel like slippers on! I also have these mules on my wish list this year!
Organic Thermal \\ Mate the Label is my go to for organic staples. I love their PJs, sweatshirts and tees! I find that unless you choose the ‘boxy’ style, size up!
Wide Leg Jeans \\ I love this style because its so flattering! I got these wide leg cropped jeans last season and seriously the most comfy jeans I’ve ever had. DL1961 has become my go to brand for sustainable and SO comfy jeans you will love to wear. My husband loves them too and I’m going to try their maternity jeans this season! I also loved these colored wide leg cropped pants.
Boyfriend Oxford Shirt \\ I love a good oversized, cotton oxford shirt. They are classic staples in my closet that can go with anything!! I never get tired of wearing this shirt with jeans or a vest or scarf for cooler days. I also love this one from Frank & Eileen that is all cotton and so soft!
White Sneakers \\ I love these everyday sneakers made with organic cotton and responsibly sourced rubber. They are super lightweight and after a few days of breaking in (give it time) they are so comfy. Remington wears these little girls ones and they are very secure for growing + moving feet!
Maxi Dress \\ Especially being pregnant this season, I know I’ll be living in maxi dresses and sweaters! I love flowy maxi dresses because they are easy to dress up or down and always work well during pregnancy and after! Sezane is one of my favorite brands for sustainable feminine dresses. I love this eco friendly fleece dress and this floral sustainable + washable silk dress. For something warm and cozy, I love this alpaca v-back dress—so flattering and their alpaca material is just dreamy soft!!
Stripped Cashmere Sweater \\ I think every closet needs a stripped sweater as they go with everything! I got this soft one as a gift last season and I wear it all the time (size up)! I also love this organic cotton stripped sweatshirt for a budget friendly option.
Oversized Flannel Shirt \\ This is a must for fall + winter. I love the oversized flannel shirts from Madewell that are all cotton and they partner with the Better Cotton Initiative to improve cotton farming!
