How to Wear a Scarf
With an Ethical Outfit and Accessories
Who doesn’t enjoy looking great in the latest styles? Most of us care about our appearance and take pleasure in crafting a wardrobe that helps us express our personalities. Accessories are a great way to show the world who you are, and figuring out how to wear a scarf with your favorite outfit can take your appearance to the next level.
However, the conscious shopper of today isn’t just looking at the price tag. More and more people want their outfits to express there values. That means buying products from companies that care about the planet and the people on it.
That’s why we’re shining the spotlight on the slow fashion movement. Modern brands are betting against fast fashion and concentrating on environmental stewardship, ethical treatment of workers, and social investments.
Where do you go to put together a fall outfit that speaks to your values as well as your sense of style?
We’ve got you covered with five pieces that you can feel good about looking good in, from companies that make a difference.
Who said you have to start at the top?
We love Earth Shoes, a company that is fuses comfortable, trendy footwear with conscious choices to create a positive impact on the planet. If you’re trying to figure out how to wear a scarf with unique, earth-friendly boots, look no further!
Earth Shoes use environmentally friendly, non-toxic methods in the production process, and they donate a portion of their proceeds to foundations that plant trees, provide shoes and school supplies to impoverished children, and promoting healthy lifestyles.
Here’s our pick:
The Rexford women’s boot featured here have a small heel and arch support for maximum comfort, a zipper for utility, and wrap around laces for eye-catching style. They’re available in 3 colors on their site.
This fall, we are in love with HFS Collective’s belt-bags and cross-body purses.
The company promotes simple living and sources its eco-friendly materials from companies that care about the planet. Their products are made in the USA by a family-owned factory, and they donate 2% of their proceeds to organizations that are committed to women’s empowerment.
If that doesn’t give a company Andes Village street cred, we aren’t sure what will!
We’re including one of our favorite accessories here, the convertible belt bag in saddle eco suede with vintage embroidered hemp detail, available on their site.
For the perfect pair of jeans, look no further that Kuyichi, a Dutch denim producer that uses 100% organic cotton and recycled materials. This company publishes an annual sustainability report on its site and sources its materials from socially responsible suppliers.
It gets better:
Their jeans are 100% vegan. We’re featuring the Lisa Slim Worn in Black wash jeans here.
You’ll need some high-quality outerwear once you realize that winter is coming.
Keep it at bay with a jacket from Tentree, the company that plants ten trees for every product purchased. With your purchase you’ll get a code so you can see where on the planet your dollars are helping to combat global warming and loss of topsoil.
On top of that, you’ll be proud to know that Tentree takes a stand by committing to long-term social investment.
Now you know how to wear a scarf with a real earth-friendly coat!
