As we learn more about fashion’s massive environmental footprint, the conscientious consumer is looking to invest in clothes that minimize the harm done to Mama Earth. From buying secondhand to reading labels to find out what materials an item is composed of, many of us are educating ourselves on alternatives to fast fashion.
All these considerations haven’t left our minds as we get a start on our fall shopping, which is why we’ve partnered with TENCEL™ — a brand that strives to set a new standard of sustainability with responsibly produced fibers that look and feel gentle on your skin — to bring you the ultimate, no-harm-done-to-the planet checklist. Didn’t know you needed a geometric-print shacket for that puzzling between-seasons period? (Fun fact: TENCEL™ fibers support the body’s natural thermal-regulating mechanism to keep you warm and dry in transitional weather.) Or a beach-umbrella-striped co-ord to keep the summer-holiday spirit alive well into autumn? Our edit has it all. (We should also mention here that almost everything rings in at under $150.) Ahead, see 10 pieces you can add to your closet now and keep wearing much, much later. The Henley That Makes Party Dresses Anytime-Appropriate
