The first time I ever went to New York in 2009 with my mom and sister, my mom set up a tour for us of the garment district. I was absolutely fascinated by the history of fashion and garment making and the ethics behind so much of the clothing that we wear and find for low pricing. This really opened my eyes to how complicated the clothing industry is, and why I'm really excited to partner with Everlane today, a company that's working hard to provide an ethical option for shopping gorgeous, high quality pieces for your wardrobe.
If ethically sourced clothing is high on your priority list, or someone you're gifting to this year, Everlane is filled with stunning and ethically-made items that make for incredible gifts. They have everything you need to build a beautiful wardrobe from start to finish, and I'm obsessed with the soft and lovely colors that each item is available in! I feel like you could easily find something for everyone on your list, and with Everlane, you can feel great about your purchase since it's all ethically sourced, and with some of the finest materials in the world.
To add a cozy finish to an outfit, you seriously cannot go wrong with this Waffle Beanie. I love the idea of sending this to someone who lives in a chilly area to keep their ears from getting frosty through the winter! This would also make such a sweet stocking stuffer or addition to a gift basket.
Probably at the top of my list for gift ideas right now is this cashmere sweater. Who wouldn't love reaching into a package and feeling the most gorgeous cashmere imaginable? This Ballerina Raglan comes in a couple feminine and classic colors. It would be such a thoughtful gift for a mom or mother-in-law, sister, or best friend, and it will feel like a hug from you every time they wear it!
Everlane truly made a jean for every body with this Authentic Stretch High Rise. It's a stretch fabric that looks like true denim, and it's super forgiving on every curve. I love the super-high waist–it's a really fun, trendy look when you tuck your top in, but it's also flattering and smoothing if you wear a top over it!
The Cocoon Coat is the kind of oversized outerwear in a timeless shape that has just enough wiggle room to layer all your warmest Winter sweaters. The wool blend makes it both soft and warm, and I jumped on it when I saw that it came in this soft lavender color. I love it and know it's a piece I'll wear for years! You have to check out the other colors available too, because there really is something for everyone from classic black or camel to a statement-making plaid. You may want to size down because this jacket is pretty oversized!
A ballet-style heel that is made for walking in all day long? Yes please!!! The short block heel and elastic back on this heel make it a great gift idea for women who are on the go, and once you slip them on, I promise you'll consider buying in every color available because the leather is SO ridiculously soft.
Totes are such a good gift item. You don't need to worry about size, and what woman wouldn't love a handbag in a cute pop of color to add to her collection?! They're both practical and fun! This tote comes in 6 different colors and I was pretty sure I'd love it in real life but oh my goodness when I opened this baby up I was like, I AM DEAD. It's pretty dang near perfection. This tote is made with 100% Italian leather too, so it feels as luxurious as it looks. This is probably (definitely!!!) my favorite item I ordered from Everlane. And I'm pretty sure my mom is going to want to steal it from me.
I'm seriously so happy with every item I found at Everlane! They are working hard to offer timeless, quality pieces with total transparency in the process that brings those items to your closet.
I hope this helps my readers who are looking for ethically produced clothing for themselves, or someone you're giving to this holiday season who will appreciate Everlane's mission. You can find all of our favorite pieces from Everlane below.
