Slow Fashion Staples

Fashion is slowing down at lightning speed. Replacing your entire wardrobe every season is no longer a thing. Rather, it’s about investing in key pieces that will last ages. Keeping clothing out of the landfills and instead, right on us—looking 10/10. We rounded up brands and key staple items we’d happily stock up on (only if we need to, of course). They’re all sustainable, well made, and have beautiful design: the recipe for good slow fashion. We feel good giving them our money (all our money, take it all).

LACAUSA Santi Jumpsuit

Dress it up, dress it down. The Santi Jumpsuit from LACAUSA is perfect for frankly any occasion. Throw on a t-shirt or turtleneck underneath for a more casual vibe, or pair with heels to wear out on the town. And, it’s made in the USA.

Paloma Wool Suzuki Puffer Jacket

Puffer jackets are everywhere right now and it’s for good reason: they look good thrown onto virtually any outfit and exceed traditional cozy levels in the winter coat realm. We’re leaning towards this coral shade from Paloma Wool with tortoiseshell buttons, because who says a fashion staple can’t be a little spunky?

Kotn Fitted Turtleneck

Kotn is a feel good brand: they expertly combine simple design, with the luxury of Egyptian cotton grown ethically at family farms. They make any closet basic you could fathom; like their turtlenecks. Wear one on its own or get layer-y with it—the options are endless.

The Reformation Cynthia Jeans

We’re all for “getting our butts into something more sustainable.” The Reformation’s denim line is ethical and transparent: they’ll tell you how much CO2 and water you’ve saved by picking out a pair of their jeans. The exposed button fly on these bad boys makes this classic straight leg pair a little spicier.

Veja V-10 Sneakers

Everyone needs classic white sneakers in their shoe lineup, in our humble opinion. For that, we look to Veja, a leader in eco and ethical production in the shoe world. They work directly with fair trade family farms in Brazil and the Amazon and always buy organic and ecologically friendly materials—impressive. The sneakers we picked out have a fun 80s vibe that’ll give any outfit a retro flair.
