18 Responsibly-Made Wardrobe Staples Inspiring Our Bright & Cheerful Spring Capsule Wardrobe

Hello, Spring!

We're so looking forward to peeling off some of the knit layers we wrapped ourselves in this winter and feeling the sunshine on our skin this spring! As the weather heats up, we're turning to mid-length skirts, cropped pants, classic stripes, and spunky, colorful shoes and accessories. We're tucking away our dark neutrals in exchange for denim and rust—both can pair with anything without looking too serious.

Here are our 18 favorite pieces that are inspiring our capsule wardrobe this spring! 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! ✨
