Sustainable Fashion Review: VETTA Capsule Wardrobe

Hi, everyone! In today’s post, I will be reviewing a sustainable fashion brand called VETTA capsule wardrobe, and I’ll be sharing Outfit No.3 & No. 4 from my Summer 2017 10×10 capsule wardrobe challenge!

Sustainable Fashion Review: VETTA Capsule Wardrobe

VETTA is a sustainable fashion brand that specializes in capsule wardrobes. In VETTA, each capsule wardrobe consists of only 5 pieces, but you can mix and match them to create 30 different outfits. This sounds like a steal, right? But are the clothes actually living up to VETTA’s bold claim? Read more to find out!

I currently only have one item from VETTA, and it’s this two-piece dress in black. Just like what you see on their site, the dress is super versatile.  I have been wearing it often both as a dress and a top. I haven’t tried it as a skirt, but ideas are coming!

Sizing

My frame is 32-24-34, and I usually fit a size 0 and XS. I got XS from VETTA, and the dress is true to size. Since the dress has mostly elastic bands, I think if you are in between sizes, go for the smaller size instead!

Quality

The two-piece dress from VETTA is made out of a biodegradable fabric called Tencel. The dress feels substantial and soft. The seams are well tailored. And the tassels are holding up well even after a couple washes. To summarize, the dress has a good quality.

Maintenance

Although the dress doesn’t come with a garment care tag, I have been cold washing it with a laundry bag in machine and then hang-drying it. The tassels still stay in good shapes, and the fabric dries decently fast.  However, the dress does get wrinkly after a wash, and you do have to steam it to achieve the straightened look.  I have tried ironing it, but it doesn’t really work.  But all in all, this dress is meant for casual occasions, and so a wrinkle or two doesn’t hurt.

Versatility

This two-piece dress has quickly become my favorite dress because of the versatility. Besides wearing it as a dress, I love separating out the off-shoulder portion and wear it as a top. This dress is extremely good for traveling.  In my opinion, this dress is well worth $119 because of its versatility and sustainability.

Verdict

Overall, I recommend VETTA. While I can’t say VETTA is cheap, the dress I got from them has good quality, and it is very affordable for a sustainable fashion brand. Also, I care more about the cost per wear than the pricetag itself. Given how versatile VETTA’s clothes are, I think their pieces are worth every dime because I will wear them very often.

  1. Pieces from VETTA are multi-functional and versatile. I have deep respect for the designer behind VETTA because this two-piece dress is extremely well designed and thought-out. Also, based on the site, every piece in VETTA can be worn in multiple ways. Take this wrap top as an example, you can wear it in at least 4 different ways.
  2. VETTA is a sustainable fashion and ethical fashion brand. All VETTA pieces are made ethically in NYC with sustainable fabrics such as Tencel and deadstock fabrics. Additionally, they pay close attention to details and use recycled materials for all their packaging too.
  3. Capsule wardrobes at VETTA is mini-sized and great for traveling. I commute to work by plane and travel on a weekly basis. And so I always look out for travel friendly items whenever I go shopping. VETTA pieces are great for traveling because each piece is versatile and fast to dry. If you prefer to travel light like me, look out for clothes that are made with biodegradable fabrics such as Tencel and Viscose. These two materials are known for fast-drying.

I hope you find this review helpful! Besides the two-piece dress I am wearing, I also like these items from VETTA:

In Outfit No. 3 from my Summer 2017 10×10 capsule wardrobe challenge, I am wearing this black dress from VETTA. I pulled up one sleeve and wore as a one-shoulder dress. But you can also see how I wore it as an off-shoulder top here. If you love one-shoulder dresses, you can find more color options from VETTA. Additionally, you can also find other one-shoulder dresses from Mara Hoffman which is also a sustainable fashion brand:

In outfit No. 4 of my 10×10 capsule wardrobe challenge, I paired this off-shoulder top from Yumi Kim with these green pants I got from Vietnam. I love this off-shoulder top because the sleeves are sewed separately from the tube top, making it easier to move around. You can find other sustainable off-shoulder options from this blog post: Sustainable Fashion for 8 Spring/Summer Fashion Trends in 2017!

I bought these pants from Libe workshop in Vietnam, and you can see how I wore it differently from this blog post:Shopping in Saigon, Vietnam Part 1

    Love my Vetta wrap top! You look lovely in the dress, too bad they are sold out in my size now! I really like how you’re mixing in fun floral pieces for this 10×10

      Yeah I was debating between the top and the dress when I was shopping. Thank you, Melanie! 🙂
