Ethical Summer Style Inspiration


It's been a while since I did a summer style inspired post and even though I am still trying to minimalise my life I'm also in need of a few key pieces moving forward into summer that is fun, versatile and perfect for festivals, travel and exploring. I think with age I have become more experimental with clothing and as they say, fashion should be fun! I don't want to look back at photos and think all I wore was monochrome (as much as I like monochrome). Here are a few inspirational pieces I am loving at the moment and there is something for everyone's budget.

First up has got to be a pair of summer short dungarees by Lucy and Yak, I already own a longer pair which is great for colder months but now moving into summer I am loving these. They are practical yet fun and on trend and perfect for a spot of camping. They are also a Living Wage employer and have excellent fair pay and low waste credentials.

Tally Weijl

 An easy way to keep cool and stay cool this summer is with white buttoned playsuit from Swiss brand that is, their clothes are creative and well designed and at a very budget friendly price too with this playsuit coming in at £29.99. The company also has some pretty good ethicals as well with Tally Weijl banning plastic bags from all 870 stores a number of years ago and switching to only paper bags on top of that they also encourage their customers to bring in their old clothes into the store to be recycled. They are also an equal opportunities employer who employ a high number of female employees as well as striving to make coming back to work after motherhood as smooth as possible.

ethical clothing

One of my favourite ethical companies is People Tree and I am loving this collaboration with BBC Blue Planet, I mean how sweet is this eco-white organic cotton tee with shark illustration. What I really love about People Tree is how passionate they are about fair-trade and they know exactly who and how their products have been made. 

Surfers against sewage
I thought I would add one for the kids because how sweet are these Tootsa Surfers Against Sewage collaboration t-shirts which is currently on sale at £14. Printed on 100% organic cotton, proceeds from the sale of this tee go towards the environmental charity that is surfers against sewage. We are huge fans of Tootsa which unisex kids clothing company that creates some wonderful colourful clothing for children and doesn't separate sections for girls and boys (just how it should be). 

This list could go on and on and on but rather highlight 4 things I really love than 10 that are just okay because when it comes to any purchases in life I always say less is more and investing in a decent item is better for you and the environment than buying loads. Hope you liked my mini summer style inspiration post and if you have any suggestions please leave a comment as I love to discover new brands.
