Go Natural With These Chic & Sustainable Fashion Trends

As ‘Hot Girl Summer’ slowly fades into ‘Fierce Girl Fall,’ we’re getting into going natural -- and this time, we’re not talking about hair. Thanks to water pollution, the use of toxic chemicals and increasing levels of textile waste used to create clothing, Mother Earth is really going through it and it’s time that we do something about it. Fashion brands are trying to turn a new leaf by switching to sustainable fabrics and textiles to create clothing ethically. As it turns out, not only is ethical fashion good for mother nature, but it’s ultra chic and a bomb way to add rich texture to your closet! 

Sustainable is the new chic! Go green with us and make the planet happy by incorporating these ethical fabrics into your closet.

Fun fact: Your favorite summer staple is also good for the planet! It’s a low impact, low carbon building material that makes the perfect accent for a flirty look without doing damage to the earth. Although it’s a Summer go-to, don’t be afraid to pull it out for a cute Fall moment with accessories like bags, and even shoes! It’s rich texture and neutral tones will keep you styling all September.
