We get a lot of questions about using Stitch Fix to try to create an ethical wardrobe. The strength of using Stitch Fix is that you can ask your stylist to look for ethical items made in the USA or Canada if you don’t have the time to do the research and searching on your own. They do carry several ethical brands for jewelry and accessories, favorites like 31Bits, Sseko, Soko, and Nakamol. If you have been dabbling in the ethical fashion market long enough, you know that when it comes to ethical clothing the options are fewer and the prices are higher and that is true with Stitch Fix as well. It is worth noting that not all items at Stitch Fix are made ethically, or made in the US, so if you follow them on social media, the items they post may not fit your personal criteria of ethics.
As you may know, Beth and I have both used Stitch Fix in the past and I recently received a fix focused primarily on Made in the USA items. Here’s what I got!

Stitch Fix – Outfit 1
Fair Indigo Princess Seam Organic Fair Trade Pocket Dress / From Stitch Fix* – Lysse Jylyn Ponte Legging, Made in USA /From Stitch Fix* – 31 Bits Spiced Strands Beaded Necklace /From Stitch Fix* – BC Footwear Society D’Orsay Flats
I’ve been having a lot of fun styling my Fair Indigo Dressember dress so it was easy to start my flat styling by pairing it with made in the USA Lysse leggings, BC Footwear flats, and the 31 Bits necklace. These leggings are so thick and flattering – they are high waisted and suck your tummy in for a smooth look under tunics. And the burgundy color is perfect for fall. The beautiful and versatile 31Bits necklace is made out of 100% recycled paper by women in Northern Uganda who were paid a living wage. The shoes are the BC Footwear Society D’Orsay flats. (Side note: I have not received a clear answer on whether the shoes are ethically made; we DO know that BC Footwear cares a lot about animal rights and being eco-friendly. We would love to know more about this company’s production ethics and will keep you posted on any news we receive!)
Stitch Fix – Outfit 2
Cardigans are the perfect layering piece for fall and winter in Texas and buffalo plaid is so much fun. Although this is a fun piece, a word of warning – the sleeves fit a bit tight (might want to ask for a size up if you request this) and it is 100% acrylic so it doesn’t have a great hand feel. It is still a fun, on trend piece that feels very festive this time of year!
Stitch Fix – Outfit 3
From Stitch Fix* – Le Lis Annalise Textured Knit Top / Symbology High Waisted Stylized Feather Trousers / From Stitch Fix* – 31 Bits Spiced Strands Beaded Necklace / Fortress of Inca Victoria Luz Heels
I’m always looking for more ways to wear my High Waisted Stylized Feather Trousers and this slouchy sweater was a perfect match. This is the one piece that I decided to keep from my Fix. It is so soft and just slightly oversized for the perfect slouchy fit. It is also technically a jersey knit top which makes it ideal for Texas winters because we don’t need our sweaters to be overly chunky! The 31Bits necklace rounds out this look with a tiny bit of color. Even though I didn’t keep it from this Fix I’m putting it on my Christmas wishlist!
Overall, I really enjoyed this Fix full of cute and on-trend ethical pieces. If you are interested in trying Stitch Fix, make sure you let your stylist know that shopping ethically is very important to you. Be clear that you would like pieces made by ethical companies or made in the USA or Canada. Enjoy the experience of receiving a box of clothes curated for you on your doorstep!
