Fall Into Flats
"FALL INTO FLATS"
SUSTAINABLE STYLE by Contributing Fashion Editor: Rose Mae Turner
These " Five Slow Fashion" brands Sparkle on their own with a fashion forward aesthetic combining an environment and social conscious awareness. I will each month highlight brands that keep fashion fun, on trend, elevated, along with its cause. I want everyone to see how far eco-friendly brands have come. They aren't frumpy or too earthly feeling. The design has evolved to hip, cool and must have right now; and it's nice to not feel guilty when purchasing. There are many versions of sustainability. A simple reminder to ask yourselves to investigate each purchase a little more will go a long way. Hope you enjoy this curated list of fashion items. We celebrate cruelty free, sweatshop free, fair trade, and being made in the USA.
