Sustainable Street Style: Winter Whites and Winter Textures

I was digging through my pants drawer the other day and found these nice white jeans by rag & bone. Usually I would wear them just in the summer, but I’m a big proponent of using as much as your wardrobe as much as possible. And winter whites can be so refreshing!
rag & bone is actually made in the U.S. So when I’m looking for dependably chic basics, I know it’s (an expensive but) good place to start.
The jacket is by Line Dry. It’s made in the United States, and has a versatile look so that I can wear it for multiple occasions. You can find it at Modavanti. (Use code ECOCULT for 10% off.)
The scarf is by A Peace Treaty, a brand that works with artisans across ten countries to create their luxury scarves. The angora turtleneck I bought in Iceland three years ago; it’s by an Icelandic brand called Birna. The shoes are conventional, by Madewell. You can get similar ones that are ethically made by Miista. The bag is a reusable one from Reformation.
This top* is made by artisans in India. You can find ethically made tops like it on Indelust, which features nothing but fairly made, Indian designs.
The buttons on the back are hidden below a placket. Don’t worry, I can actually unbutton the entire thing by myself.
*This was sent to me free as a gift from Indelust.
