5 Things Every Eco-babe Needs to Transition to Fall
Fall is officially here! As much as I love the summer, who can resist all the coziness that comes with cooler weather? It's a tricky time for us Compassionate Fashionistas though. We still have to transition our clothes (because I for one am not freezing my butt off in a romper come November), but we do want to curb our consumerism. The cardinal rule for eco-fashion is simple. Buy less.
Luckily, with just these 5 staple pieces you can take your wardrobe from summer to fall and back again, all while keeping your look on point.
Bigger Is Better
Oversized blazers are going to be everywhere this fall. My pick is from YSTR. The funky pattern makes it a statement piece while it’s simple black and grey color palette means it’ll go with anything.
Don’t give up those skirts just yet. These fun fishnets by Swedish Stockings will keep you rocking those minis for months to come. Skip the boring plain tights and go bold with a fun mesh pattern. Bonus eco-goodness, these babies are made from recycled yarn and their factories use mostly solar energy.
These Boots are Made for Walkin'
Booties continue to be a big trend for fall. This faux suede pair by No Vacas are as ethical as they are gorgeous. Why? because they’re 100% vegan! The heavier lug and thicker heel also mean you can wear them all day without killing your feet. Opt for a soft dove grey over the typical black. Since grey is still a neutral you’ll get just as much wear out of them while standing out from the crowd.
Go For the Gold
Switching up your makeup is a key to transitioning your wardrobe. This fall gold eyelids and deep berry colored lips reign supreme. 100% Pure has just the right hues. Try their eyeshadow in Gilded and Lip Caramel Gloss in Plum Wine for a soft romantic look.
Keep It Old School
Another staple for fall is the oversized clutch. Everything is bigger this fall including clutches. Oversized clutches were all over New York fashion week both on the runway and on the streets. Snag a vintage one for a truly unique feel. They were huge in the 50’s and 60’s so head to that section in your local vintage shop first.
