Slow is the new black.
There is something deeply appealing about the slow fashion movement. Thoughtful designs that transcend trend. Luxurious materials acquired from sustainable sources. A manufacturing process that steers clear of toxins, is kind to the environment, and treats workers with dignity (and a living wage). Who doesn’t want to open their closet and see these admirable qualities on full display?
The rise of the slow fashion movement has resulted in a strong group of labels that are producing truly gorgeous clothing. This isn’t your mother’s eco-conscious fashion; this is sustainable luxury. Like Zady. Their Essentials Collection is unbelievable. All nine pieces are worth the investment, starting with these three must-have sweaters…
This slouchy, lightweight alpaca sweater comes in three gorgeous neutral shades: charcoal, heather grey, and this rich caramel. Wear it with everything from weekend jeans, to workday cropped trousers, to layered over a silk slip dress for evening.

A slim wool sweater is a key part of any minimalist wardrobe, and this one gets a little extra kick from a subtle tuck stitch pattern. It’s available in charcoal, light grey, and natural (palest beige).

Chunky knit sweaters are definitely the best part about winter dressing, right? This wool version was created in partnership with the conservation-focused Oregon ranchers who raise the sheep from which the wool comes. It’s available in grey, navy, and natural (palest beige).
