When it’s time to finally soak up the sun and cool off in the water, you want a post-beach outfit that is flattering, classy, and of course ethical. That’s why I just love this strappy bodysuit from COSSAC.

tropical palm print sustainable fashion cossac bodysuit

The thing I like most about this swimsuit is that it’s so comfortable. It has self-tie shoulder straps, has a soft jersey feel, and it’s got a wrap look that is flattering and forgiving. Really, what’s not to like? But my favorite part is that COSSAC is “sustainably designed and ethically produced…with the aim of minimising wastefulness and maximising usefulness.” I can imagine this body suit styled for almost any occasion - talk about versatile!

Of course, it wouldn’t be a beach day without a fun wrap skirt, like the one from virtue + vice. This palm-designed wrap is a lightweight blend of sustainable, biodegradable, and cruelty-free rayon, polyester, and silk. It dries quickly, too! The adjustable tie makes it easy for anyone to rock this piece.

You can’t hit the beach without some sun protection, which is why I love these Spy Sun Spark shades from the brand Sea2See. Gold and tortoise shell accents complement the body suit well and just look classy! This brand rescues ocean plastic waste and turns it into premium eyewear.

This Mini St. Tropez Tote from designer Kayu is a great addition to any beach or summery look. This cute little tote is made with sea grass and yarn by women cooperatives in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia. They earn a living wage with Kayu and also preserve their cultural heritage by infusing their culture’s textile practices into every piece. Get your mini tote at Amour Vert

Last but not least, you need comfy, quality shoes that can stand up to the sun and sand. These black leather wrap sandals from Sseko are just the thing! They’re made from high-quality leather and have tons of cushioning so you won’t have to worry about your feet hurting. Sseko also supports young women in Uganda by employing them and helping them go to college, so your purchase goes a long way.
