04 Mar Top 5 Sustainable Spring Fashion Trends
The winter days are finally getting longer and warmer, which means spring is right around the corner! With the sunny season comes a slew of new styles that we can’t wait to try… but of course, we always opt for the most eco-friendly shopping options. From classic minidresses to boho accessories, check out our top five sustainable spring fashion trends below.
1. The Culturally-Inspired Trenchcoat
The chicest winter accessory is now a staple for the early days of spring 2021. While chilly days drag on, slip into a sleek version of the classic trenchcoat: the FRAMIORE KONG Coat ($250). Known for crafting made-to-order, anthropological fashion, FRAMIORE seeks the highest standards of sustainability and social responsibility. Made with 100% Lyocell, the KONG coat’s large pockets and knee-length design are inspired by the Vietnamese cultural tradition of hiding one’s hands in loose sleeves to show respect, elegance, and humility.
2. The Upcycled Ballet Flat
Get your dancing feet ready for this Audrey Hepburn-inspired spring 2021 style: ballet slippers. Rag & Bone’s Elly Flats ($195) are soft, ergonomic, and sustainably made for an on-trend, ultra-femme look. They feature recycled polyester and satin, so you can feel good about what you’re wearing every step of the way.
3. A Better Boho Bag
Nothing beats boho messenger bags for comfort, style, and practicality. Now, this roomy accessory makes a comeback. If you have travel plans this season, then opt for a flight-friendly Cork Yoga Backpack from Corc Yoga ($135). The sleek design keeps all your essentials readily accessible while the 100% natural cork material is lightweight, hypoallergenic, and naturally antimicrobial. For all your local spring occasions, The Noces Simone Cross Body Raffia Bag ($140) is our top pick. Classically designed from 100% handwoven raffia palm fibers, the neutral color compliments any outfit.
4. The (Responsibly Designed) Designer Mask
It’s official: designer masks are a top-trending style. Although things are slowly making their way back to “normal,” safety is still a priority. Keep yourself covered up in high style with a Reusable Filtering Face Mask from female-founded ECOMASK ($29). The brand uses cutting-edge, five-layer filter technology proven 98% effective against bacteria, germs, dust, air pollutants, pollen, and more. Additionally, UPF 50+ protects from sun exposure while a science-inspired design makes breathing easier. Choose from sizes XS-XL and five classic colors, with proceeds from every purchase benefitting Healthy Seas. Items are made in Germany with 100% renewable energy and ship in compostable, carbon-negative packaging. Plus, when you’re ready for a new one, you can send your used ECOMASK back to the company for recycling.
5. A Minidress Made for You
Show off those sun-kissed legs, thanks to this season’s minidress trend. Feel bold and confident in this sexy look when you step out in the BUUST by Buxxomly ($299) undergarment – the world’s first Liftwear one-piece. Available in classic black or chic white, experience soft, body-fitting fabric made from 99% recycled materials. Designed by a woman for real women, BUUST offers customizable, adjustable features to support every body type comfortably. A low-cut neckline makes this a versatile, go-to piece when worn alone… or as a supportive undergarment for a variety of dress styles.
BONUS: St. Patrick’s Day Pick!
Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, get your green on (both literally and figuratively) with this beautifully handcrafted item from Conges Fine Jewelry. The Congés Green Tourmaline Necklance ($875) is subtle and sophisticated. A raw Earth stone set in 18k solid yellow gold, this piece does more than save you from a holiday pinch; green tourmaline is said to attract abundance and prosperity while boosting creativity. Cheers to that!
