Does your fashion compass vanish in winter? Mine does – and something tells me I’m not alone! But no more textureless gray and blacks! For February’s “Eco Look” I’m breaking all the rules. Let’s anticipate spring with a seventies-inspired look using an exclusive selection of eco, organic, vegan and ethical clothes, and accessories. What I like best about this look is that each piece is perfect both for night & day!

The List

1. Bracelets by Raven + Lily. Handmade with recycled silver, copper, and brass beads (melted down from bullet casings). Empowering women with HIV living near the Entoto Mountain in Ethiopia.

Asmir: Triangle Wrap Bracelet in Gold or Silver // Adera: Bird Charm Bracelet in Gold or Silver

 

2. Coat by Vaute Couture – the Belden in V/Velveteen-Lilac . This coat is very flexible, it doesn’t need a scarf and it can also be opened up for that classic trench look. It’s made from recycled fibers, with a windproof liner to cut out all the chill. And with a color like that, everyone will love you a bit more!

3. Tights by Wear Pact. The Women’s Autumn Orchid Arrow Tights are made of 69% organic cotton, so there’s no pesticides, fertilizers or bleaches. Plus with every purchase, you help PACT lend a hand to low-income entrepreneurs who want to start their own small businesses. (The tights are in Radiant Orchid – Pantone Color of the Year 2014).

  1. Oh I love this, I just brought out two spring/summer dresses because I just am tired of sweaters and heavy trousers, leggings all of the time. I wore my recycled sari maxi dress with thick tights and winter boots on a date Saturday night. And my organic cotton mini dress with vegan leather leggings, a wool sport jacket and vintage combat boots earlier this week. I think if it is not too cold and you layer you can rock the Spring in Winter look, no problem. Thanks for the post!

  2. Wonderful Tereneh! Bringing Spring in winter is definitely possible! 🙂
