Life is complicated, but your wardrobe doesn’t have to be. In fact, if this past year has taught us anything, it’s to keep things as simple as possible. That’s why we reach for our favorite ethically made tops when we want to give our outfit a little upgrade without a lot of fuss.
How do you achieve an effortless and polished look? Simply throw a fair trade topper over your jeans or leggings and head out the door. Yep, it’s that easy!
We rounded up our five favorite ethically made tops that will leave you feeling put together, no matter where your day takes you.
Keep It Classy
If you’re looking for a way to quickly upgrade distressed black denim and feel like royalty, look no further than the Modern Journey Topper. This ethically made jacquard, jewel-toned topper with soft, flowy sleeves is a ready to polish an otherwise casual outfit.
To Dye For
When it comes to indigo, our partners know that there’s nothing better than the real thing. Natural indigo dye takes about a year to make, and it’s definitely worth the wait. To make the Indigo Topper, our partners in India use a tried-and-true, millenia-old dying technique that turned this top the most beautiful blue we’ve ever seen. This lovely top is available in two sizes!
Don’t settle for generic. If you need to shake up those jeans and that plain white T, try the Patchwork Sari Topper on for size. Pieces of recycled cotton sari fabric are lovingly stitched together with the traditional kantha technique passed down through generations. Since they’re handmade with recycled textiles, each top is entirely unique — just like the person wearing it!
Looking for something with texture thats not too… over the top? The Tapestry Topper features an eye-catching floral motif in rich, deep hues that will be easy on those eyes.
Let’s be honest. A poncho is a fashionable blanket, and we are 100% okay with that. Wrap yourself up the Reversible Poncho from Ecuador and look chic while feeling like you never got out of bed. What could be better?
There you have it — our top picks for toppers. The best thing about these pieces? They’re perfect for easily looking put together on video calls.
