Get Ready for the Beach (or a Boat!)

Are you hitting up the beach any time soon? Are you looking for a summery look that provides comfort and coverage? I recently came across these pieces and just had to share!

ecofashion cotton summer outfit

I love this white and red striped Darja Stripes ¾ sleeve top. Produced by Armed Angels, it’s made with 100% organic cotton blend and abides by fair trade and global organic textile standards. Plus these colors just look so nautical! Combine them with these bright and cheery shorts from Komodo and you’ll be ready to rock. These organic linen shorts follow strict soil, textile, and ethical fashion standards, which means you’ll be supporting industries that are focused on doing good all over the world.

These neutral Pinatex flats from Bourgeois Boheme are vegan, super comfortable, and you can use them for a ton of other outfit combinations. They’re also made with pineapple leaf, cork, and plant-based bio-polyoils, which means a decreased ecological footprint and a highly durable pair of flats. Accent the red in the Darja stripes top with this Harnita bangle, and tie in the striped aspect of the outfit with this multi textured tote bag, both made by Bajalia. These pieces were both made in India by female artisans, which means you’re advocating community that is socially and economically driven to support women all over the world - what’s better than that?

Of course, any outdoor look isn’t complete without a hat for shade. Check out this great pompom straw Panama Hat from Shicato, sold through Accompany US. Made with 100% toquilla straw and handwoven in Peru, this hat is considered to be a huge component of Ecuadorian cultural heritage and supports the local economy. You get coverage and protection from the sun while also supporting sustainable textiles.

Finish the look with these Maya earrings, from Purpose Jewelry. These statement earrings are crafted by a survivor of modern day slavery. Your purchase contributes to the rescue of victims and the emotional and financial support they need to obtain true freedom and independence.

And when you combine all of these pieces together and you’re ready for some fun in the sun!
