my year-round minimal ethical wardrobe
I'm constantly talking about how beneficial it is to curate an intentional closet, but what does that actually look like?
I decided to share my complete wardrobe as a practical example. Keep in mind, this is not a formula to replicate. Take the time to find what works for you, but use this as inspiration to know that you really can achieve high functioning ethical style without an overflowing closet. The term "minimal" is very relative; you may look at my 43 items and think, "That's so much stuff!" but, compared to the average American woman's closet, 43 items is just a fraction of the size.
The graphic below gives an overview of everything I own, but I'll break it down by category and product description later in the post.

So there you have it; this is the wardrobe that works for me in any season! Will it evolve over time? Of course. Items wear out and new pieces will come in, but I am determined to keep my closet clutter-free and full of clothes that were made without hurting people.
