Below is a selection of products I love and use daily. I have affiliate relationships with some of these brands, which means you support A Small Wardrobe when you purchase using the links and codes provided.
Organic Basics. Organic Basics is one of my favourite minimalist brands. They concentrate on a small range of sustainably produced classic basics. They have a selection of underwear, socks, tees, and fitness attire. One of my favourite products is the organic cotton triangle bra, which I own in both black and nude (above). The XS is the perfect fit for me, in case you are wondering. I also love the white organic cotton tee, which I have included in several videos! Another recent addition has been the Silvertech Active range. These fitness bras and bottoms are made of recycled nylon, so you can look great and feel comfortable, while being kind to the environment!
Nordgreen watch. Nordgreen is another minimalist sustainably minded brand which I would recommend. My choice has been the Infinity watch in rose gold mesh, though there are a range of men’s and women’s styles to choose from. I have tiny wrists, but adjusting the length of the strap is extremely simple and quick. My watch came with an additional strap, which I can easily swap over if I feel like a change.
Everlane Block Sandal. These shoes are the perfect contemporary shoe for either going out or more casual scenarios. They are ridiculously comfortable if you have a narrow foot. There was not break in period, they were great from the start. Be warned though, when reading the reviews I found that people with wider feet were more likely to find them uncomfortable. I got mine in black but they come in other beautiful colours, including blue and green.
Merino leggings. Technically, I purchased these two pairs of leggings on the road, but I had wanted them for a long time. At this point you should be aware of my obsession with merino tights. I essentially lived in mine all through the Australian winter. The problem with my old ones was that they were a poor quality product in the first place, and they had massive holes in them after two years of use. I had been looking to replace them for the last couple years, and finally found two options I am happy with. Both are warm, comfortable and of high quality!
Hanogram phone case. I have a really issue with dropping my phone. The last phone I owned was completely shattered. These lovely minimalist design phone cases from Hanogram have been an excellent way to protect my new precious device. The nifty case above has little pockets in the cover which can be used for cards. I was also able to use it as a wallet while I travelled, which saved me space. As an additional bonus, the cases are vegan friendly!
Atomizer. If you want to bring your beloved perfume travelling with you, here is the travel atomizer I used. It’s not easy to fill up, as leaks occur. This is the feedback I’ve seen about most of these. I would recommend filling up a few sprays at a time during the week, so you can use anything that drips out on your person. 5 ml lasted me about 2.5 weeks.
