I’m so excited to share a directory of 50+ ethical fashion brands to shop at all price ranges! Trying to find ethical/sustainable/slow fashion brands to shop can be difficult and overwhelming so I’ve tried to find the best brands to compile into one list to make it easy for you! These are brands that I either shop at, want to shop at, or offer a lot of pieces I would want to buy. So basically, it’s a curated list of brands that fit my style and aesthetic so that it’s not too overwhelming but still offers variety!

Everlane used to be the gold standard for modern pieces at an affordable price point. I’m also a HUGE fan of their styles and work with them on a gifting basis.

They also do have a lot of sustainable practices and charitable initiatives.
