There’s a lot of work to be done in the fight against systemic racism and police brutality against Black Americans. You can protest, vote, battle for policies aimed at ending discrimination in law enforcement, call local government officials, and donate—if you can, whatever you can—to bail funds and other vital organizations. (We have some suggestions, if you need ’em.) And while you’re thinking about where you can put your money to work, it makes sense to apply that same consideration to your closet, too. To that end, we’ve put together a (by no means complete) list of black-owned fashion labels and clothing stores. Whether you’re looking for a fit-worthy sweatsuit or a masterfully crafted business suit, start here next time you’re stocking up.
