I recently shared how I want to experiment with more minimal outfits while wearing my winter capsule wardrobe (coming soon, by the way! I’m waiting on one more item to arrive!) For me, part of experimenting with clean and minimal looks means learning how to accessorize better. There are so many people who accessorize effortlessly, but I’m just not one of them. I struggle to make things look purposeful and laid back, so this season I’ve chosen a few pieces to focus on. Hopefully by the end of winter, I’ll be more confident in my skills with accessories. This season I’ll be specifically focusing on scarves and handbags.
Often times when I’ve brought up the topic of ethical and sustainable fashion, friends respond by saying something to effect of “that’s nice, but there’s no way I could afford that.” That was my mindset when I first started to look into alternative brands as well, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the affordable, but still fair, options that are on the market today. I’ve been able to find many brands that are comparable in price or even less expensive than fast fashion brands, and while affordability is a relative term, I hope there will be something for everyone among the brands I share. Today I’d like to start with knit basics such as tees, leggings, and tanks.
