It’s always this time of the year we start to think about updating our wardrobes for fall. Labor Day has come and gone, it’s New York Fashion week, pumpkin spices and apples are right around the corner…are you itching for some new fall essentials? Check out these fabulous fall finds…all made from recycled materials; upcycled, or DIY.
The perfect outfit for meeting the gals for coffee or going apple picking with your beau. Espirit debuted a denim line created from their manufacturing offcuts. At least 22% of their recycled denim is made from the label’s own production waste. Toss it on with a beautiful, hand woven scarf made by artisans in the Peruvian Andres from baby alpaca and a hint of silk from Object Mythology. Add an Organic Cotton and Hemp Wrap Skirt from Etsy with a pair of your favorite tights. Tuck them into no-nonsense boots from Timberland. They’re made with 15% recycled rubber and a mesh lining with recycled plastic bottles! With a look this down to Earth, you’ll want to make sure your skin is looking just as fabulous so stash your Touch Up Set in your tote.
Want a head to toe look that transitions from summer to fall? Ecoology 101’s Acai Berry dress is made from a blend of natural linen, organic cotton, and recycled cotton. Pair it with American Apparel’s Bamboo Tights when the weather gets cooler. Slide on some sunny yellow heels from Coclico, made with natural jute, grab a great vintage bag from Etsy and you’re good to go for almost any causal outing. For makeup, this look will need a perky eye. Grab your Bamboo 6 Piece Eye Brush Set and create away.
For the most casual of fall days, start from the top and work down in comfy fabrics. A chunky hand knit hat from Etsy is a great place to start. Follow it with a trendy cut top and Linea Hemp Yoga Pants made of stretchy organic cotton and hemp. Throw on an upcycled tattered bracelet for extra style. Don’t forget your feet! Gucci has created “sustainable shoes” made with biodegradable plastic. A simple swipe of powder will do on days when it’s just yoga or errands. Pick up an EcoTools Limited Edition Beautiful Expressions Kabuki set to cover all your bases from powder, blush, and buffing to a pretty glow.
No matter what you’re wearing, always add a smile! Have fun with your fall fashion!
