Cool Hues for Hot Days
Need to sweeten your fashion palate? Use sherbet hues to add a splash of cool colors to your outfit. For a casual stroll downtown or brunch with friends, try on these Thea Flats in Mustard from The Root Collective ($138), handcrafted by Guatemalan artisans. The Root Collective fights generational poverty in Guatemala by employing local weavers and shoemakers. Symbolizing courage and vitality, this Personalized Signature Collection Carnelian “Courage and Belief” necklace from Congés ($725) adds a pop of creamy orange to your sundress or tank top. Their jewels and metals are meticulously sourced. Additionally, pieces are donated to local fundraisers for auction.
Show Some Skin
Beat the heat while showing off some skin with the side cut-out trend. Sage Larock’s Ibiza One Piece ($99) is a tantalizing addition to your swimwear
collection. Ultra-soft luxury fabric made from recycled fishing nets helps support our eco-system while catching eyes on the beach.
Back to the Basics
For a classic and reliable look, knits are a mainstay in any wardrobe. Their flexibility allows for relief during sweltering summer days. Seam Siren’s Protective Racerback Tank ($49), free of chemicals and botanically dyed, is our go-to pick for a day on the town. Seam Siren’s garments feature organic, wild-crafted fibers from Nepal dyed with plant-based pigments. Also, browse the Neu Nomads summer collection for sustainable, affordable essentials made from organic, plant-based fabrics and non-toxic dyes.
Re-Live Childhood Summers
Tie-dye takes us right back to summer camp. A fun addition to your summer style, carry all your beach and travel essentials in this Rainbow and Unicorn Red Handbag from The Noces ($162). Each bag is handcrafted by Malagasy women using all-natural materials and dyes. For a lazy afternoon, OuterKnown’s Trippy Tank ($58) fits well with your shorts or yoga pants. Founded by pro-surfer Kelly Slater, the collection also features 100% organic cotton sewn in a Fair-Trade Certified facility.
