Let’s do it!
- Summer Dress
A good summer dress is easy in the summer when it is hot outside. Especially when it’s made from natural and breathable materials!
Top pick: Louizon – Dress Helwe
Mid-length, light dress, made from 100% organic cotton. It’s flattering and easy to wear.
How about a jumpsuit? Well, jumpsuits are also easy to wear and super comfortable. And like with dresses, the same things apply: look for something that will last and is made from breathable materials!
Top pick: Poppy Field The Label – Kassia Jumpsuit
This is a very cute lovely, flower print jumpsuit with long legs and a elastic belt. It’s so chic and easy at the same time.
Shorts are always handy. And this year you can easily combine them with your oversized jackets.
Top pick: Kuyichi – Black Denim Shorts
- Linen shirt
Linen is a great natural material, ideal for the summer: it’s breathable, light, and it will keep you cool when the temperatures go up. Plus, it’s a very sustainable crop that requires less water and energy to produce than cotton and needs no pesticides. A good quality linen piece might be a bit pricy at first, but it will last you for a long time!
Top pick: EcoAlf Linen Tshirt
Made from 100% linen, this relaxed, nude t-shirt goes with anything, from jeans to shirts, or layered under a jacket. You can barely go wrong with a classic piece like this!
- Tote bag
A trusty, good tote bag is everything! You can carry it to the beach, while exploring the city, use it as a shopping bag… The possibilities are endless! So, choose the one that will last you through all those activities and is made sustainably.
Top pick: Isidora "Trash" Logo Shopper by Markberg
I mean, while choosing a bag, why not make a statement too? This one, apart from being specious and sturdy, says “Trash can be recycled”. And indeed it can: this bag was made from recycled cotton blend!
I can’t wait to jump into lighter footwear again! After a long cold and rainy weather, I am all for open shoes and sandals. But, I still want them to be made ethically and I want them to last. These are always my priorities when looking for new shoes.
Top pick: Alohas- Double Strap Camel Sandals
These sandals simply speak comfort! They are made in Spain and the brand is totally against mass production.
