Since hopping on the capsule wardrobe bandwagon (winter capsule coming soon!), I have started paying more attention to what clothing companies I support with my dollars. Here are four brands I discovered last year that I love and highly recommend:
What they do best: modern basics
Why I love them: Everlane is known for their unique radical transparency. They have found the best factories in the world, and have personal relationships with the people creating their products. They are completely honest about their pricing structure and will tell you exactly how much it costs to make their products.
Products on my wishlist: Silk sleep set

2) Nisolo (<---get a $25 coupon)
What they do best: shoes, jewelry, bags
Why I love them: Every shoe is made by hand and is seen as a work of art. Their products are created with quality materials made to last. Their styles are simple, effortless, timeless, and made to live in.
Products I have purchased and love: Ecuador Huarache Sandal
3) Seamly.co (<----get a $10 coupon)
What they do best: versatile, effortless clothing
Why I love them: Seamly products are created with surplus fabric, and sewn right here in the USA. They produce clothing responsibly, with thought and soul and care. A lot of the products can be worn different ways, which works very well for a capsule wardrobe because you get multiple looks from one garment.
Products I have purchased and love: The Convertible Pantsuit
Products on my wishlist: No Sweat Pants
What they do best: dresses
Why I love them: Brass offers designer-quality dresses at the right price. Their styles are flattering, well-made, and neutral in color so you can easily style and accessorize them to your taste. Brass is all about great fit, and they'll even pay the tab at your local tailor if you need to get a dress hemmed.
Products I have and love: The Navy A-Line (SO FLATTERING, and it has pockets!)
I'll be back next week with my winter capsule! Have you discovered any new great brands recently?
