Ethically Made Staples To Last This Season & Beyond

When I first came across Caroline Rector's blog Un-Fancy in 2014, I was fascinated by the idea of capsule wardrobe. So I tried it. Like many others who've whittled their closet down to a small number of items, I loved the simplicity it brought to my outfit choices everyday and the fact that every single thing I owned, I loved.  

I no longer keep a strict capsule wardrobe - but the idea of investing in high quality, ethically made staples aligns perfectly with our values and ethos here at The Good Trade. So in celebration of the turing of the leaves and the glowing autumnal sun (the temperature is finally starting to fall in LA!!!), we've put together our favorite mix and match staples for the Fall. 

Each piece of this capsule inspiration is made ethically and built to last well beyond this season. These are the pieces we imagine ourselves wearing at least 30 wears and loving every time we do. Details below the images. Let us know your favorites!
