With the arrival of spring, it's time to update our wardrobes with some sustainable and eco-friendly pieces that are perfect for the season. And what better way to do it than by supporting local creators and businesses that share our love for sustainability?
We've rounded up some of our favorite sustainable spring essentials that are both stylish and eco-conscious. From clothing to accessories, here are some must-haves for this season.
Your Guide to Sustainable Spring Essentials
#1: A lightweight jacket
As we transition from winter to spring, a lightweight jacket is a must-have. Go for a sustainable brand that uses eco-friendly materials like upcycled denim.
We love the jackets from the brand Zitvlak, which are made from recycled denim and come with a range of fun colors and details. They're perfect for layering on cooler days, and the sustainable materials used in their production make them a responsible choice.
#2: A versatile dress
A dress is a staple in any spring wardrobe. Look for one that can be dressed up or down and is made from sustainable materials.
We're loving the pieces from local designer Truefala, which are made from organic cotton and come in beautiful timeless designs. Not only are these flowy dresses perfect for the warmer weather, but they're also sustainable, making them a win-win choice. On top of that, they are perfect to wear when it’s a bit colder as well, you can easily dress them up with other sustainable items or dress them down for a more casual look.
#3: Sustainable sneakers
Sneakers are a great way to add a casual touch to your outfit. Look for sustainable brands that use eco-friendly materials like recycled rubber and organic cotton.
Uneak, an Italian and sustainable shoe brand, is a great option.
Their sneakers are not only stylish, but they're also made from sustainable materials, making them a responsible choice if you’re looking to make a positive impact on the planet.
#4: A reusable water bottle
With the warmer weather, staying hydrated is important.
Ditch the single-use plastic bottles and opt for a reusable water bottle. We love the ones from Carry Bottles, a brand that is committed to reducing plastic waste.
These bottles are not only practical, but they're also made from sustainable materials like glass, making them a responsible choice for those who care about the environment.
#5: A statement accessory
A statement accessory can add a pop of color and personality to any outfit.
Look for one that is handmade and made from sustainable materials. We love the jewelry from the Amsterdam based brand Ace of Cups Jewelry, which uses amazing materials to create unique and colorful pieces.
Not only are these accessories beautiful and unique, but they're also sustainable, making them a responsible choice for those looking to make a positive impact on the planet.
#6: Invest in timeless pieces
Instead of buying fast fashion trends that will be out of style in a few months, invest in timeless pieces that you can wear for years to come.
Look for pieces made from high-quality materials that are designed to last, like those from Italian brand Tenné. Not only are their pieces sustainable, but they're also made to stand the test of time, making them a smart and responsible choice.
Tenné is for women who appreciate timeless style, designed to go beyond the trends of the moment.
As we embrace the arrival of spring, let's do it in a way that is both stylish and sustainable.
By choosing eco-friendly and ethical fashion options, supporting local businesses and creators, and taking care of our clothes, we can make a positive impact on the planet while looking our best. :)
