Everlane partners with the best, ethical factories around the world and they source only the finest materials for their goods. While they have many incredible basics, we love their Modern Buckle Sandals for summer traveling.

  1. Meera Robe + Shorts: Sudara Goods

Our mission is deeply rooted in job creation for women in India who are at the highest risk of or survivors of sex trafficking, while empowering them to create a lasting, generational impact for their families. Sure, we could be biased, but our robes are hands down the perfect piece to pack. You can dress them up, down, wear them by the pool, to a yoga class, or out to dinner. We even like to wrap up in them when the nights get cooler on a camping or beach trip.
