3 STYLISH & SUSTAINABLE SPRING LOOKS

More and more designers are tuning into the importance of thinking – and shopping – sustainably. You can too, with our edit of current, eco-friendly fashion brands.

Gone is the notion that sustainable fashion is universally boring. There’s a new tribe of eco-aware labels in town, and they’re proving that fashion can be on-trend, chic and contemporary, without damaging the planet.

Of course, sustainability can mean many things. For some companies, it means being transparent in their supply chains and overseeing working conditions, or collaborating with important causes. For others, sourcing environmentally-friendly and cruelty-free materials is top priority, alongside reducing water waste and the use of damaging chemicals. But it works both ways. While brands are being held accountable for the production of their clothing, we could all benefit from taking a more thoughtful approach to shopping.

The good news is you don’t have to sacrifice your personal style to start dressing sustainably. The spectrum of responsible brands is broader than ever. So, whether you’re a monochromatic minimalist or a French style admirer, you can take part in the slow fashion movement…
