7 Ethically Made White Tops That You Want To Live In, From Now Until Labor Day

July 30, 2018

Summer is a wonderful time to indulge in basic white apparel. White (and it’s cousins cream and ivory) help reflect heat rather than absorb it like other dark material, making white the perfect color if you want to stay as cool as possible (all of us!). Wearing white has the additional benefit of helping you feel fresh and uplifted—even if the temps make you feel like wilting. Plus, in the world of color therapy, white is all about raising those vibes! What’s not to love?

Keep scrolling to discover white, cream, and ivory tops in an array of gorgeous styles. We’ve got something for every occasion! Each top comes from a brand or store that prioritizes ethical labor and sustainable environmental practices. This is a win-win for everyone: the environment, the people making these clothes, and you, the consumer!
