New Year, New Capsule Wardrobe: 18 Of Our Favorite Ethically-Made Staples This Winter

A Sustainable Start To 2018

As we roll into the new year, we're all excited about a fresh start! And that includes a wardrobe refresh—especially with the colder temperatures sweeping the United States. Our inspiration this season is low-effort, high-impact pieces that feature stunning details like color, cut, or pattern. In addition to our classic neutrals, we've found ourselves drawn to pops of fresh reds and bold blues to brighten up these gloomy winter days.

These 18 high quality, ethically made staples will keep you warm, cozy, and stylish until springtime and beyond! These are the pieces we imagine ourselves wearing at least 30 wears and loving every time we do. If you’re embarking on a capsule for the first time, or are looking for further inspiration, check out Lee Vosburgh of Style Bee and Caroline Rector of Un-fancy for their work as well! Details below the images. Let us know your favorites!
