My 10 Most Worn Items of 2017

Top 10 Ethical Items 2017  | Selflessly Styled

As 2017 draws to an end, it's a natural time to pause and reflect on the year. Some of these reflections are deep and weighty, others are light and fun, while still others are simply practical evaluations. Today I bring you a very practical reflection: the items of clothing that I've worn more than any others over the course of the year. 


Description

This is a super simple silk tank top that I've owned for two years now. I've washed it many times, so the silk isn't "shiny" at all anymore, but I personally love the matte look and texture.

Where and when I wore it

I wore this several times on our trip to Europe this summer. During the colder months, I still wore this frequently as the first piece of a layered look.

Everlane doesn't sell this specific top anymore, but you can find some very similar styles on their website.

It's cozy incarnate. This organic cotton oversized hoodie is every girl's dream. Fitted arms keep the silhouette stylish while the draping hood and body of the garment make it feel like you're wearing a great big hug.

Aptly named the "Do Anything Jacket", this stylish piece is incredibly versatile. The soft line and flexible fabric make it easy to move in, while the chic vegan leather makes it sophisticated.
