In recent years, the fashion industry has been making strides towards sustainability, as consumers become increasingly aware of the environmental and social impact of fast fashion – I think we can all collectively say it’s about time! Thankfully for us stylish folk, fashion forward brands are now embracing sustainable and ethical practices, using eco-friendly materials, reducing waste, and supporting fair labor practices in their supply chain! This means the days of wearing hemp colored, shapeless clothes are over and we can shop truly unique, trend focused, fun brands that deliver on fashion. I’ve included just some of my favorite fashion forward sustainable brands that are paving the way towards a more conscious and responsible fashion industry. From bohemian-inspired dresses to eco-friendly loungewear, these brands offer stylish and sustainable options.
I consider many of these brands to be attainable as their price point is considered mid-range. If any of these brands are out of your budget, please consider shopping for them on the second hand market at Crossroads Trading, Poshmark or eBay.
