1. The white sweater
Stay warm and stylish in a classic white sweater. Giving a nod to modern design, the unisex Noyoco X Diane organic cotton sweater has timeless fashion appeal and a premium organic cotton fabrication. Team yours with jeans, silk skirts or tailored trousers.
2. The cotton t-shirt
Ultra-soft and effortlessly cool, everyone’s wardrobe needs at least one classic cotton tee. This Unisex one from Yt-shirt offers a relaxed, boyish fit (perfect for tucking into jeans) and is crafted from premium Indian Suvin cotton that’s embroidered with “give give give”.
3. The blue jeans
The cornerstone of any capsule wardrobe, a great pair of jeans will see you through a multitude of occasions, but they do have notoriously bad manufacturing processes. However, this pair from ToBeFrank is special. Ethically produced from organic cotton denim, these ethical jeans have a low carbon footprint and have been created using 50% less water.
4. The wrap shirt
Whether for work or play, a modern wrap shirt adds a chic twist to any outfit. If you love contemporary style and original artwork, why not try this beautiful Self Wrap Lyocell Shirt from Rhumma? Cut to perfectly drape over your figure, it’s decorated with a fresh, one-of-a-kind print by Katlego Modiri.
5. The jersey trousers
Comfy yet stylish, the Mertz Organic Cotton Vegan Trousers are ideal for relaxing and recharging. Wear these vegan-friendly kick-flares with a classic tee to run errands, binge-watch documentaries or head out to your local coffee shop.
6. The eco-friendly earrings
One earring, multiple looks; the Lela Recycled Brass Earrings can add a touch of luxe to any capsule outfit. This recycled, hand-hammered pair can be worn as simple studs, a full statement earring or as a half-moon behind the lobe.
7. The statement jewellery
Add a contemporary twist to a casual tee and jeans combo with some statement jewellery. Whether an eye-catching hammered bangle or a statement ear cuff, like this Marc Curved Recycled Sterling Silver Ear Cuff, these timeless, eco-friendly pieces elevate any look.
8. The sustainable handbag
A capsule wardrobe isn’t complete without a stylish, sustainable handbag. Opt for something practical for the everyday, like the Artisan’s Choice Handbag by Mother Erth. Large enough to transport the essential, including your phone, wallet, diary and tablet, these bags prevent between 2 oz — 1 lb of unrecyclable materials from entering landfills.
9. The comfy bralette
Ultra-versatile and incredibly comfortable, you’ll wonder how you got by without a soft scoop neck bralette. The Kali Tencel Low Scoop Bralette by Sloanie is the perfect example of a great eco-conscious light-support bra, with adjustable straps so you can achieve a great fit.
10. The lace bandeau
Sexy, lacy and luxurious, there’s room for a sultry bandeau in every woman’s closet. Team the Amalfi Recycled Bandeau Top with a sharp tailored blazer and jeans for the evening or wear beneath a plunging top or jumpsuit to add another layer or interest to your look.
