Winter can be cold, grey and long, but when you have some cozy, new pieces to wear, it will be gone before you know it. When considering essential wardrobe pieces, it’s important to focus on key styles that will stand the test of time. This winter edition includes styles that can be versatile and that look out for the better good of the planet, environment, and some that support small businesses that are looking to make an impact. Let’s take on the colder weather with an extra layer of glam this season.
Trust us when I say the Boyfriend Shirt is soft and breathable. All of the fabrics from Neu Nomads are sourced from sustainable and renewable natural resources, non-toxic and use AZO-free dyes. Available in five colors, we are really feeling this olive night color during the winter months, and with its effortless style it can be worn multiple ways.

I was so happy to find Boyish, a sustainable, women’s denim brand based in Los Angeles. The jeans are produced with sustainable fabrics using an environmentally-friendly and cruelty-free process, and the Zachary style is a super stretch with just the right amount of destruction. These jeans are upcycled and include OCS Certified Organic Cotton and Tencel™ Lyocell, a natural raw material from eucalyptus trees that is responsibly produced to minimize environmental impact. This fabric also contains 3% of a natural rubber fiber, making these jeans completely plant-based.
A fashion-forward knit that can easily be worn around the house or out, this top is flattering on all body types and comes in five different colors. Made in California from sustainable yarns, the factory is small and ethical where staff can feel that they are a part of Live The Process.

This is a versatile bag and is a truly essential piece that is seasonless and timeless.
