These Swedish Stockings have been gifted to me to style. All opinions are mine alone. I only feature products that I love. Thank you for supporting the brands that support my blog.
Last year, one of my goals was to include more ethical and sustainable brands in my wardrobe. I’ve slowly grown a little collection of ethical pieces that I love and, basically, can’t live without. Making the move to ethical clothing brands can be overwhelming. It’s not possible to switch over every single piece in my wardrobe, even though that would be amazing to me.
Little by little, I am finding more brands to replace clothes in my closet. When Swedish Stockings contacted me, I spent a while reading through their site, their story, and their social media. I felt so inspired by their mission that I really want to share them with you all. They sent me a couple products to style. Today, I will be sharing a pair of stockings. On Friday, I will be sharing a casual outfit using their leggings.

I was so excited to put together this outfit. It was my goal to make it as sustainable as possible by including a thrifted dress. Since this dress is quite simple, the dots on the stockings give the outfit a little bit of interest. These stockings are such a classic look, I will keep them and wear them for years to come.
Now, let’s talk about the sustainability efforts of Swedish Stockings. After reading their website, I truly was impressed and inspired by what they’re doing in the hosiery industry. They are working on improving the manufacturing process to reduce waste. Their hosiery are produced using recycled yarns. You can read more on their sustainability page about the extra efforts they make to reduce waste. Something that impressed me is the fact they have zero waste, solar-powered factories.
If you would like to contribute to their waste-reducing efforts, they also collect used pantyhose. In fact, when I switch out my fall/winter and spring/summer clothes, I will also be going through my stockings to send my used pairs to Swedish Stockings. You can find out more about their Recycling Club here, if you are interested in sending them any stockings to recycle.
