With April 22 officially marking Earth Day, this occasion is the perfect opportunity to showcase your best eco style. Whether you regularly shop for sustainable fashion or are trying to incorporate environmentally friendly pieces into your street style, the environment also has an impact on our wardrobes. For Earth Day 2017, try stepping out in your best eco chic looks. We’ve curated a few sartorial essentials which will help you celebrate our planet in true fashionista form.
1) Joes’ Jeans The Icon Ankle, $95: These skinny ankle-length jeans claim to be created with eco-friendly denim. The denim used is said to include 60 per cent less water and 30 per cent less energy consumption. Meanwhile, the medium wash and faded detail make these jeans stylish for the weekend.
2) Eileen Fisher Stripe Organic Linen Blouse, $191: Try pairing your environmentally friendly denim with a ladylike blouse, such as this sleeveless organic linen top. The neutral off-white hue, barely there pinstripes and tiny buttons all complete the look.
3) People Tree Blazer, $92: With nautical stripes reigning supreme, there’s nothing quite like a striped topper to help you jump into Spring 2017. This navy blue and white striped blazer is made with 100 percent organic cotton, while People Tree claims to support the fair trade and sustainable garment industry. On a pure fashion front, we are liking the colour scheme, bold buttons and three-quarter sleeves.
4) Stella McCartney Raffia Espadrille Sandals, $900: With Stella McCartney claiming to create these funky sandals with eco-friendly faux leather, these espadrilles can wrap up your look. The thick straps and raffia wedge heel are a spring-ready look, while the contrasting blue and white stripes complement the blazer.
