I believe that living sustainably can still be stylish, and the brands listed here meet high standards for both ethics and aesthetics. There’s no need to compromise when there are so many responsible companies producing beautiful, high-quality garments and goods. Have fun exploring!

And if you’re just starting out on your conscious fashion journey, or are feeling overwhelmed, I recommend starting—or re-starting—with a solid foundation! I have a free Closet Inventory and Budget Template that will help you track what you have, what you want/need, how much you’re spending, and when it’s the right time to invest.
