Increasingly, eco-conscious designers are showing fashion and beauty lovers that earth-friendly can be incredibly glamorous. This summer, take a little style inspiration from the following conscious brands.
Made of eco-faux leather and post-consumer materials and lined with organic cotton, this luxury backpack is perfect for work or weekend adventures. Pack it with sunscreen, your favorite novel, and any other summer essentials.
Marie Natie makes it possible to be glam and health-conscious. These non-sticky, vibrant glosses are formulated with coconut oil and jojoba oil to deliver serious moisture and antioxidants to your lips. Marie Natie glosses are free of parabens, phthalates, synthetic colors and fragrances, and animal testing. The best part may be that these glosses smell like cake batter!
Amour Vert’s airy summer line speaks to our inner free-spirited bohemian. Amour Vert (French for “green love”) has partnered with American Forests and is committed to planting 100,000 trees in North America by the end of 2015 as part of the line’s Buy a Tee, Plant a T(r)ee program. Amour Vert is governed by a zero-waste philosophy and produces its artistic clothing with sustainable materials and low-impact dyes. How is that for beautiful style?
Made with 91% organic cotton, this modest yet flattering swimsuit takes a page from classy vintage style. Made in NYC’s garment district, Feral Childe creates its sartorial wonders with natural fibers, up-cycled materials (like recycled soda bottles), and reclaimed, overstock fabrics. The company is also committed to sustainable fabric waste management and offers leftover fabrics to other independent designers and textile recycling centers.
Even if you’re working through the summer, there’s still a chance that you’ll find some time to relax—even if just for a weekend morning. Why not chill out in style? This hand-dyed Marni Swing Nightgown is the perfect piece for sleeping in (in all meaning of the phrase). Alternatively, pair with shorts or use as a fun bikini cover-up. Finding its home in central California, “among orange blossoms and horses,” Larkspur uses eco-friendly fabrics and repurposed silks.
With their twig design, these elegant teardrop earrings capture nature’s organic beauty. Their dazzling bezel-set lemon quartz complement every skin tone. Made with reclaimed sterling silver and cast from a Central Park twig.
