Style with Sustainability: Plan Your Look of the Day with Eco-Friendly Fashion and Accessories
June 04, 2021
If the planet is your pal and you want to do your bit to save it from further harm, adopting sustainable fashion practices should be one of your mantras this Environment Day. On the 5th of June, let’s pledge to protect our planet and combat the fast-fashion ills like carbon emission and landfill eruption by embracing slow fashion, conscious consumerism, capsule wardrobe, and responsibly sourced and manufactured clothes and accessories.
But planning a sustainable look is not a mean feat. However, we can take baby steps towards a living that empathizes with earth. That’s why we are putting together all our available knowledge and resources in creating various “green” looks of the day that you can put together easily and without any fuss! For each outfit we have paired them with matching sustainable jewelleries from Orionz. It will help you to slowly but stylishly slip into a more sustainable lifestyle, one look at a time.
Formal Indian Look
Sarees form a significant part of the formal wardrobe of any Indian woman. And no, not only for ‘traditional outfit’ days at our workplace! Swapping sarees with our moms or moms-in-law is a beloved tradition and can be a great way for repurposing locally crafted vintage items. Show some love to our traditional craftsman community who warp and weft such beautiful magic on textiles from every corner of India. This will not only protect age-old techniques and skills but also boost local livelihood. See, sustainability is just waiting in your mom’s wardrobe! Go claim it.
We love how elaborate sleeves are back in fashion and ditsy floral dresses are everywhere. For quirky sleeves, look no further than these No Nasties scoop dresses. With bell-shaped sleeves and soft gathers around the yoke, the dress feels like a breezy summer day woven right into it. Located in Goa, this organic fashion label creates 100% vegan apparel. To spruce up the quiet colour tone of the dress, you can opt to stack up rings on your fingers like a Love Knot Ring with this Classic Promise Ring and tie it all together with a drop of lobe-sparkle with these Princess Solitaire Studs.
To beckon the summer blooms, dress in this mini dress with a mix of floral fabric and a gorgeous frontal lace detailing from Rengé. They create only limited piece offerings that are painstakingly crafted from the finest surplus fabric that reduces fashion industry waste. To avoid floral fashion faux pas, opt for something completely simple like our Timeless Solitaire Set that is available in round, princess, and heart-shaped and in three colours – white, yellow and rose gold plated. Team it up with our Infinite Ellipses Tennis Bracelet for that single string of unlimited shine wrapped around your wrist.
Evening Party Look
Nothing can battle the balmy summer evenings if not comfy clothing and that’s why we recommend this jumpsuit from Refash. Upcycled by Insom, this jumpsuit is made to order and ethically produced so that minimum wastage can be assured and the dignity of labour can be maintained in every piece. With our statement dangler, Bold Black Stone Cocktail Earrings, get ready to unleash your wild and fun spirit and slay the party like a princess!
