Welcome to the new year! 2024 is here, and our focus is to help others embrace a fresh start (and a new look!) by working on their sustainable wardrobes. Making conscious choices that are good for the environment and the production team is what sustainable fashion is all about. Choosing quality over quantity and focusing less on fast trends, more on long-lasting timeless styles. In this blog, we’ve outlined 5 outfits for a sustainable wardrobe to kick start your ‘new year, new look’! Each outfit includes fashionable, comfortable, and timeless styles to help you feel and look your best! Check them out below.
Look 1: Relaxed and Cozy
Layering is so important, especially in the colder months going from your home, to office, to running errands – the temperature can be so unpredictable! We’ve paired one of our classic essentials, the Anita Relaxed Crew Top in Anchor Blue with our Terry Leggings in Black, layered with the Silivia Zip Front Hoodie in Black. This outfit keeps consistency between the leggings and hoodie but adds a pop of colour with the Anchor Blue on the top!
Look 2: Comfortable Business-Casual
If you work in an office, or are looking for a comfortable but trendy look, you’ll love this second outfit. The Dalya Funnel-Neck Bamboo Long Sleeve shirt in Rosewood is made of our sustainable bamboo jersey fabric. This lightweight, buttery-feeling fabric is perfect for wearing all day long and perfect for dressing up or down. Pair it with our Samira Wide Leg Pant in Slate Grey for the perfect office look! Wide leg pants are the new ‘it’ pant, but how do you style them? Easily with our Dalya Funnel-Neck Long Sleeve – we recommend tucking the long sleeve in for a put-together look. If you’re cold, throw on a blazer or cardigan!
Look 3: Sustainable + Chic
Our design team has a great tip for putting an easy outfit together – try to stick to 1-2 colours when choosing a top, sweater, and pant. By this, we mean for easy matching, choose the same colour bottom as your top or cardigan, such as pairing our Georgia Crew Long Sleeve in Latte with our Lucy Shawl Collar Cardigan in Latte with a black legging, such as our Suri. The monochromatic look is definitely in, but it can be intimidating to try out – a great way to ease into it is by matching the same colour in two of your pieces and contrasting with another colour. Chic, and sustainable pairings!
Look 4: Everyday Styling
An easy and relaxed outfit is always a favourite – pairing a plain t-shirt like the Lia Seamless Short Sleeve Tee in Black with a denim-knit, cotton blend jegging, like our Kara Ruched Jegging in Blue Denim, provides a simple, casual look. Throw on the Iris Shawl Collar Tunic sweatshirt in Black for added warmth and style! This outfit easily pairs with your favourite boots or sneakers.
Look 5: Warm Neutrals
This winter, we focused on creating beautiful neutral tones that easily pair with other pieces in your wardrobe. The Kamea Side-Zip Bamboo Fleece Sweater in Warm Brown is an easy throw on styling piece featuring that beautiful brown tone. Pair it with our favourite brushed French terry legging, Viva Pocket Leggings in Black (bonus: since the sweater does not have pockets, the Viva Pocket leggings have 2 on the side pocket! You’ll have the perfect place for your phone or keys).
