A thing we love about fashion is that it keeps changing and surprising us, and we can always experiment with different new looks. While not everything works the same for everyone, we can all agree that when it comes to sustainability, it is a movement everyone should embrace. We should think about meeting our needs without compromising the needs of future generations, so we are happy that fashion can offer us great eco-friendly trends nowadays as well.
What is Sustainable Fashion?
“Sustainable fashion is a movement and process of fostering change to fashion products and the fashion system towards greater ecological integrity and social justice. Sustainable fashion concerns more than addressing fashion textiles or products. It comprises addressing the whole system of fashion.
This means dealing with interdependent social, cultural, ecological and financial systems. It also means considering fashion from the perspective of many stakeholders – users and producers, all living species, contemporary and future dwellers on earth. Sustainable fashion therefore belongs to, and is the responsibility of citizens, public sector and private sector.”
Let’s see what six sustainable trends we all love!
Neutral-colored clothes made with natural dyes
Black, white and nude colors are very trendy this year, and we love them because they are minimalistic and elegant, so one can simply feel sophisticated wearing them. We also appreciate this trend because the clothes are made with natural dyes. This sustainable fashion trend is free of toxic chemicals that are used when dyeing clothing.
Authentic vintage items making us look amazing
If you are a well-informed and devoted follower of fashion, you know that vintage fashion is selling now more than ever. Disco seems to be a particularly huge trend at the moment and it will continue to be that way in 2020 as well. People are going for eco-friendly vintage items that give them that amazing authentic look.
High-waisted skirts bringing us back to the 90s
Recently, we have been quite nostalgic about the 90s. Girls thrive in wearing those cool high-waisted skirts that were popular back then, and they enjoy mixing them with crop tops and all kinds of vintage tees. High-waisted jeans and chunky sneakers are also very appreciated at the moment, and since this look is both cool and supports the eco-friendly movement, we like this trend even more.
Eco-friendly sunnies for environment lovers
Sunglasses complement any outfit perfectly, and we love them because they make us feel cool and they protect us from the sun. We are more than happy that now there are eco-friendly sunglasses, and this is another new green fashion trend that is very popular now, the one that protects both our eyes and our environment.
Exaggerated knits and handmade sweaters
Huge, embellished and popcorn knits, they are all quite searched for for the time being, and it is another sustainable trend we love so much. It is one of the major trends, and one of the reasons is the comfort and coziness that it offers us. We like exaggerated knits and amazing handmade sweaters that make us feel incredibly warm, and we look awesome in them!
Printed dresses great for any season
As much as it is essential that our wardrobe contains basic plain items that we can combine with everything, girls know how important it is to also own a few printed dresses, at least one for each season, because these are fashion staples as well. Wearing dead animals is a big no, but animal prints are in and we just love them, as much as we love all sorts of prints! We are lucky that today there are many stores offering beautiful sustainable clothes, printed or plain.
A good example would be quality sustainable Realisation clothing, which is not only eco-friendly, but also very fashionable, with pieces that entice ladies to buy them. They have very nice-looking printed dresses, and you can even find interesting details like rainbows, which are always trendy and something we like to see, and we can wear them no matter what the season is.
From beautiful prints and nostalgic vintage and retro items to really cool eco-friendly sunnies and handmade sweaters, there are so many sustainable fashions items to try and enjoy!
We are thankful that there are so many eco-friendly options today that are fashionable, and the best part is that all these looks are really splendid. From beautiful prints and nostalgic vintage and retro items to really cool eco-friendly sunnies and handmade sweaters, there are so many great items to try and enjoy! Find the look that works for you and own it!
