If you're looking for that effortlessly cool, slightly bohemian but chic and modern vibe, Lacausa is what you need. This Los Angeles based brand fully understands what a modern young woman wants in her clothing - comfort and ease of movement, unique details and styles that will continue to kill it. Lacausa, meaning "the cause," stands strongly for sustainability and ethical production in the fashion industry but in a quiet way that leads with cool aesthetics rather than facts. The company is dedicated to supporting the garment industry and it's workers in Los Angeles, working solely with small manufacturers that they personally visit and ensure are paying and treating their workers fairly.

Quality: 4/5 stars
I've been wearing Lacausa pieces for over two years with no malfunctions, but some pieces are sewn hastily, coming with too-large button holes or out of place threads.
Sizing: 5/5 stars
Everything I've tried fits true to size.
