Revolutionary Style

‪By Bianca Alexander

Just because Fashion Revolution Day is over doesn’t mean you’ve missed your opportunity for evolutionary style. Check out this look, which features some of the top ethical designs of the season. Each piece is made in accordance with balanced, fair trade principles, which is sure to tip your wardrobe in the right direction without offending your conscience.‬

‪The foundation for the look is this luxurious reading skirt from Vaute in flirty tomato red, a dramatic statement piece for date night or a fun stroll through the park. Less daring? Opt for Navy instead. Made with love in NYC from 100% plastic bottle recycled fibers, whatever color you choose, it pairs nicely with a striped tee, like this white and sesame box top blouse made from silk, tencel, organic cotton and low impact dyes from Indigenous. Compliment the look and keep your neck warm on chilly days with their chunky infinity scarf in chili.‬

‪Shine up your legs with a fresh vegan pedicure and slide into pop-color wedge platforms from Mink Shoes, then top off the look with this navy motorcycle jacket from Vaute made from leather-free waxed canvas and recycled PET lining. The cherry on top? A fair trade beaded bracelet from Indigenous and a funky zigzag Pashen Collection purse ‪made from 100% alpaca wool by artisans in Peru. It’s roomy enough to hold an ipad mini, a wallet and of course, your consciously cool card.

‪Looks like you’re ready for the revolution. Now go rock it.
