For last month’s “Eco Look” series (click here to see) I posted a look inspired by the adventurous, eco-conscious woman living in the city.
With the “Eco Look” monthly series, I always want to showcase companies from all over the world that are eco, fair- trade, ethical, vegan and organic and give you creative options to find the perfect garment to compliment your beauty – and that of the Earth!

To honor Earth Day (which is celebrated on April 22nd), this month I was inspired to create a double look with the beautiful colors of the Earth: blue and green. In contrast with the ethereal hues of blues and greens, I decided to pair the dress for both looks with a subtle grey colored top. This helps to accentuate the accessories in the look.

Tip: When styling a look, it’s important that you don’t pair it and accessorize it with only bold pieces and colors. I usually like to create a flow of strong and soft.

Here are 2 options to pair the same dress with different accessories and clothes (but you can also mix & match as you wish!):

Dress Up – perfect for an elegant evening out, for a wedding or a sophisticated office look.

Dress Down – ideal for meeting your girlfriends, a first date or touring the city.
