Rock the Look: Off the Shoulder Summer Dress

Rock the Look: Off the Shoulder Summer Dress

Off-the-shoulder pieces are one of the best looks this summer, especially when you want something that fits well but still flows. If you’re looking for an off-the-shoulder piece that you can wear around the house or for a night out, I just love how comfy this Cordoba off-the-shoulder dress from Accompany looks! Accompany is an amazing retailer that supports artisan-made, fair trade, humanitarian-oriented designers and artists. Each piece on their site abides by certain standards and are generally one-of-a-kind pieces with a real heart and story - check it out!

With its Kingston stripe colors, this dress is a great start to a day or evening outfit. Thanks to the shoulder frill and mid-calf length, this dress leaves plenty of flexibility to dress it up or dress it down. Plus, your purchase helps support sustainable economic activity in small villages. With its bright colors, neutral accents like Miko Khaki slippers and a lovely dot clutch from Kayu are a great way to round out the look. The Amuse Bouche lipstick from Bite Beauty is also a great neutral lip color to tie it all together. Plus, these pieces are so versatile that you can use them for so many other outfits!

To go with the striking Kingston stripe colors of the Cordoba dress, the Selah bracelet is a great way to accent the pink, gold, and earthy tones. It’s made from Haitian mountain clay and the proceeds give back to the parenting community in the region. Of course, you’ll need some lovely sunglasses to protect your eyes when you’re rocking your new outfit! The Spy Sun Spark shades are made from 100% recycled marine plastic and have a classic tortoise shell style that complements the gold and earthy tones in the Cordoba dress.

But any great outfit needs a solid finishing touch! These Sun Stud earrings from Article 22 are a great way to make a statement. Choose between sterling silver or 10k gold styles and your purchase goes towards clearing 6 or 11 square meters of mines from Laotian minefields.

Hopefully this outfit gives you an idea of how you can still look amazing while also being conscious of what your fashion represents. These designers and products focus on high quality which means these pieces will last you a long time, plus the proceeds from these pieces also give back to the people who are most affected by “fast fashion.”
