Just because you believe in ethical fashion doesn’t mean you have to give up on style, wear a potato sack spun from cat hair, stop shaving, and live in a comune. Fall has some hot trends coming our way and as long as they pass the #30wearschallenge test (which we recommend shopping by) here’s the ethical brands bringing you the good stuff.
1 | Pantsuit Nation
After all the political upheaval last year, it’s no surprise that pantsuits were put front and center and no brand does them better than Argent. Dedicated to the working woman they have practical design features like pockets for iPhones, earbuds, and pens #PRAISE and feel great.
2 | Fur
WAIT. Don’t call PETA on us yet. Game of Thrones has no doubt had a real impact on the runway, but you don’t have to go drop several grand on a new coat of pelts that harmed animals to get on this cozy trend. If you spend any time in vintage stores you’ll find a plethora of already existing, absolutely beautiful, and most importantly ridiculously warm vintage fur coats. Keep the textile waste down and use what’s already in the market. Want an online option? Aptly named, Vintage Furs to the rescue.
3 | Glitter Boots
The runways may be able to afford fully decked out Swarovski crystal boots however we think these Stardust Skaya Boots by Brother Vellies get the job done, especially since they include economic development in Africa and are made from bi-product or environmentally conscious materials.
4 | Bold Red
Maybe you’ve been blind the last 6 months, but bright bold red has been popping up everywhere. We love that this trend enables you to take up space, lean in, and be seen. Go get ‘em. Try some of these great options from Reformation.
5 | Midi Skirts
You may recall your elementary teacher wearing these in your youth, however they are back and better than ever and no one proves that more than this Raven + Lily crowdpleaser.
