With the crisp fall air beginning to fill our lungs, it is time to shift our wardrobe focus to items that will look chic, keep us warm, and be kind to the planet at the same time. But don’t worry, you don’t have to wrap yourself in an old potato sack and tie it with a belt to add a chic factor! There are so many eco-conscious clothing options available for you and we have narrowed it down to some of our faves for this week’s Top Five orGLAMic Fall Fashion Finds.
Emersonmade offers piece after piece of delectable items that could easily enter the permanent rotation in my closet – and while the blazers initially caught my attention, this Emerson Shift is now my favorite. Made of 100% organic cotton, this dress is perfect for a day of meetings yet can also easily transition into dinner date attire. And the eggplant color? Perfection for fall!
The Beau Swing, from eco-conscious company Beau Soleil is the perfect layering piece for those in-between days at the beginning of the season. The 30% bamboo and 70% organic cotton combination creates a lightweight fashion-forward cardigan that drapes elegantly over tank tops and more. Available in black, petal and rhino, I would wear this everywhere from a plane ride to a dinner soiree.
One of the pioneers of organic fashion, Stewart+Brown offers cutting edge fashions season after season. This Trench Coat Dress captures the fall army-inspired trend seen on the runways. Made of 100% organic cotton Japanese platinum twill, this machine washable dress is made in the USA. Worn with out without leggings underneath, this selection screams “fall fashion 2010!”
This organic denim company offers a wide variety of styles of eco-friendly jeans and more. Whether you are channeling your bohemian, hipster or uptown girl side, this orGLAMic company uses sustainable materials such as organic cotton, bamboo, linen and more, to get you there.
Created in 2005 by Ali Hewson and her husband Bono (of U2 fame), Edun has made a great impact in eco-friendly clothing by incorporating high fashion into every season. I love the elegant simplicity of this Organic Jersey Scoopneck Tunic and can see this worn so many ways – over a turtle neck and tights, belted with stilettos, with a cropped jacket and boots, etc…
