Every season comes with new colors and trends to embrace, and this fall season is no different. While being able to hop on trends with ease usually means shopping at large department stores and taking part in fast fashion, there are ways around that while staying stylish! Participating in trends doesn’t have to hurt the environment or take a chunk out of your wallet.
Symbology is a Fair Trade clothing line that showcases unique dresses and kimonos. Their mission is to make fair trade sexy. In order to do that they merge artisanal fabric techniques with fashion forward designs that give their customers a one-of-a-kind item that connects the wearer to a global community.
It wouldn’t be fall fashion without a wool or cashmere sweater to wrap yourself up in! At Naadam they work with herders and clean energy practices to get the highest quality cashmere possible. Soft cashmere is a great way to top a classic fall look.
In the fall and winter it can be easy to fall into the routine of grabbing anything black from your closet. Yes black is super slimming and easy to match with almost anything, but it can get a little boring. Spice up your outfit with a printed trouser for fall. People Tree works with only organic and fairtrade cotton and is Global Organic (GOTS) certified. They work to make you look good and feel good knowing your unique garment was made with respect for people and the planet!
Last but not least, you can’t go anywhere this fall without seeing some amazing fur coats. Not all fur coats look or feel the same, but they are all a fall staple! The bigger the coat, the better, right? Grab a teddy coat style from Whimsy and Row, who are dedicated to consciously reducing their eco footprint. By taking leftover deadstock fabric they are able to get creative and make something new, with less!
No matter what time of year it is, ethical and sustainable fashion is always in style. Being aware of your eco footprint is super important, even when it comes to clothing choices. This season, do what you can to stay stylish and sustainable!
