Simple & Sustainable Pre-Fall Outfit
Pre-Fall outfits can be a little tricky; you feel a cool breeze coming in but don't want to pull out sweaters just yet. Instead, go for an effortless look; jeans and an oversize shirt is the perfect outfit for the beginning of Fall.
About a year ago, my girlfriend told me about this local designer who started a sustainable jean company called Boyish; I immediately fell in love with this brand. Their jeans are not only super stylish, but the sustainability level is off the hook! Check this out:
Boyish Sustainable Values:
- Use plant-based dyes instead of toxic chemical dyes
- They recycle water
- Their jeans are Peta approved (animal cruelty-free)
- They are OCS 100 certified Organic Cotton
- They also use recycled cotton, deadstock, and Tencel Lyocell material
- All of their suppliers sign their Code of Conduct
These are just a few of their values; I'm leaving stuff out to make it short. You can check out more of their sustainability standards here. The other thing that I love is that they're made to last, and their price point is reasonable for a sustainable brand. Boyish really is one of my favorite brands.
Ok, moving on to the rest of the outfit 🙂
Shirt & Bag
I'm super picky when it comes to oversize shirts; some of them make me look like I'm wearing a PJ, but not this one 🙂 I love how the bell sleeve gives sort of a romantic look, and the cleavage is just perfect! Sancia is a sustainable company based in Australia, they use Eco-friendly materials, and all of their bags are 100% vegetable-tanned. Oh! And they use recycled hardware.
Ok, I have to say; sustainable shoes aren't easy to find (styles I actually like). I'm an advocate for the environment, but I don't want to look like a tree hugger. Fortunately, I found this brand called Alohas; they look feminine and have a wide range of different styles from flats, to heals and even boots! From a sustainability standpoint: Alohas manufactures locally (Spain), and they started using a few plant-based leathers. They're definitely on a sustainable path 🙂
