Thankfully, most of the fall fashion trends are very versatile and really easy to adapt to our everyday style. Check out these ethical fashion crème de la crème pieces every eco-conscious fashionista should pick up right now!
60s mini dresses
Twiggy’s iconic look in a 60’s mini dress makes a definite comeback with this fun, colorful and playful fashion trend. We picked out a classy 60’s dress from Stella McCartney’s collection for the Fall of 2014, because we love the indigo color, along with the zipper details. Its relaxed fit makes it perfect for both day and night outfits.
Our second pick is the Kristina dress from Vaute Couture’s collection, which is made of organic cotton velvet in a very cute lilac shade. A-line silhouettes are perfect if you are looking for something versatile, which can complement any outfit, and velvet dresses seem to be a favorite of fashion designers for Fall 2014! Are you looking forward to twirl in this gorgeous dress? We know we are!
Have you heard? Fashion designers are all for sports wear for this year’s Fall. We don’t mean slacks and Nike sweaters, though! Silk shorts, quilted mini dresses and flats are considered sports wear in the fashion industry as well, and adopting this trend may mean you will just have to match a striking pair of silk shorts, like the Ikat shorts from Amour Vert we picked out for you, with your favorite old t-shirt and sneakers!
Amour Vert, an ethical fashion brand, features many silk, breathable shorts and a multitude of cute active tops in their 2014 Fall collection. Feel free to mix and match, to create the most fashionable sports wear outfit ever!
Novelty PrintsCapes may seem a little hard to wear, but for 2014 they are considered to be one of the hottest Fall fashion trends. From classic and demure to colorful and wild, capes can become an essential part of your wardrobe! We discovered the Boom cape from KowTow, which comes in two variations; black eyes and large polka dots design on a pink background, and entirely black. Thanks to a draw cord around the hem, the Boom cape can be worn in many different ways. It’s made from heavier weight premium certified fair trade organic loop knit fleece, and screen printed with environment-friendly water based inks.Novelty prints
Another major trend for this year’s Fall are novelty print clothes. Vibrant, loud designs which bring even the simplest pieces to life seem to be the fashionistas’ safest bets for the season. Colours and novelty prints will help you put together interesting, fun outfits. Zady’s Enki button down shirt features a striking print that was drawn entirely by hand before being printed onto 100% silk fabric. The shirt also has a unique silhouette, because of its unusual cut, which is very fashion forward and stylish.
Our second item comes from EDUN, which is a global ethical fashion brand founded by Ali Hewson and Bono. It is a gorgeous novelty design dress, as seen on the runway. Its bold design and neutral colors are very classy and attractive, perfect for the modern, eco-conscious, fashionable woman.
Long knits are very popular among fashion designers this year, and they are a must-have for this fall. Better suited to slender silhouettes, this look can give a simple, natural look an extra dash of sexy, laid-back allure! Stella McCartney’s soft mohair crew neck jumper goes perfectly with a pair of simple loafers and skinny long trousers or tights.
Kuyichi is an ethical fashion pioneer, as they are considered to be the first eco-conscious fashion brand. Their lovely Camilla loose cable crew knit, which is made of organic cotton, features long sleeves that can be rolled up, and an above-the-knee hemline. Trendy and versatile, this long knit can adapt and fit almost any style!
