Sustainable fashion is something that you may not think about when it comes to clothing. But, now it is becoming more relevant. When you think of sustainability; how was the clothing you’re wearing produced? Was it produced in a workable environment?
Sustainable Fashion Styles
Indeed, the idea of having a wardrobe of eco and sustainable styles may cause you to pause. However, it shouldn’t. With environmental topics under a microscope; it has never been more relevant to dress green.
Whenever you buy something, you should first decide if you’re really going to wear it. How many times do you end up buying something that stays in your closet with the tags on? Personally, I have done this many times.
First and foremost, if it is something that you’re going to wear all the time, than buy it. But if it is an item that you’re only going to wear once or twice; try to buy something that is inexpensive. Of course, the key is to spend more money on pieces you will wear many times and items that aren’t a fad. To read more about fashion trends, be sure to visit my Life Cycle of Fashion Trends post.
In the first place, one of the most important things to know about shopping for sustainable goods is knowing where to start. Many designers are now getting on-board.
Stella McCartney has been a proponent for sustainable fashion her entire career. McCartney doesn’t use leather or fur in her designs and her focus is to provide modern, yet fashionable styles that are not impacting the environment. Below is one of her signature styles – the platform slip-on sneaker. So, every season McCartney does a variation of a platform sneaker, slip-on’s and sandals.
Another one of McCartney’s signature styles is the Falabella bag. Every season, you can find variations of this handbag in faux leather, animal print, faux fur, logo or patchwork printed styles.
Are you looking for a cute dress? In my opinion, this dress is the perfect style that is timeless. Wear this style in the daytime with a pair of loafers or sneakers, or dress it up after 5 with a pair of sandals or kitten heels.
Another great shoe style is the Moroccan Rose print pointy toe flat. Did you know shoes can be made from recycled water bottles? Well, Rothy’s created all of their shoes from 25 million and still counting water bottles. Indeed, Rothy’s is on a mission – to create beautiful sustainable shoe styles to look good, yet feel good when you’re wearing this brand.

J Brand made several styles to reduce chemicals, water and waste. From J Brand, these stretch crop denim jeans are right on trend. Wear this with a T-shirt or tank top for daytime or night.
No doubt, with more designers and brands focusing on the environment; dressing sustainable is in fashion.
