Have you heard about Everlane yet? If you've been following my Turning 30 journey (which by the way, I'm 30 today!), then you know that I've been working on developing my own personal style for this new stage of life and I'm trying to create a capsule wardrobe.
While I've been working on this, I've also been learning about slow and ethical fashion, which is where Everlane comes in. They are a great source for ethically produced wardrobe basics! I'm actually working on a larger post about my journey to an ethical capsule wardrobe, but I couldn't wait to share about this company. I just got my first order from them this week and I'm so impressed.
First, a little about the company...
Everlane is online only so they can pass along savings to customers because they have less overhead that brick and mortar stores have. Everlane searches the world for the best factories, visits them often and develops close relationships with the factory owners. This allows the company to assure customers of the factory's integrity. You can see pictures of every factory that produces clothing for Everlane on their site.
Earlier I mentioned the savings they pass along because of their business model. They also show a cost breakdown for EVERY item they sell! You can see how much it costs to make the item and the markup. As a former business teacher, I find this aspect of their business fascinating.
I bought the Pima stretch tank which will be great under sweaters or blazers this fall and winter. I also bought the cotton crew tee in black and white. These will also be great layering pieces this fall with cardigans and blazers. All three items are so soft! I'm sure they will become favorites VERY quickly!
If you're in the market for some ethical wardrobe basics make sure you take a look at Everlane. They are very affordable and I'm happy with the shirts I bought.
