With the summer season in full swing, it’s totally normal to crave a few new closet additions. But if you’re going to drop the cash to look chic, why not do some good as you splurge? We’ve rounded up 20 fabulous accessory and clothing picks to help you stay socially conscious-–even as you hit the boardwalk!
From eco-friendly, made in the USA flip flops to soft organic cotton undies, we’ve found ‘em all!
Tennis pro toggle bracelet ($69, sportychicdesigns.com). Go sporty-chic with this Seaside Collection piece. Inspired by oceanic hues like seagrass green, driftwood yellow, and clamshell purple, the line will help you carry a bit of the beach to the tennis court or golf course. Manufactured in the United States, you can expect baubles as resilient as your power arm.
Okabashi Maui flip flop ($14.99, okabashi.com). You don’t have to take a trip to Maui to afford these ultra-comfy, United States-made recyclable flip flops. Featuring a massaging insole and arch support (we’re grateful already), you can throw ‘em in the dishwasher after a day of walking to retain that just-purchased look. We simply can’t wait to take a stroll!
Oka b Callista flat ($45, oka-b.com). Not only are these flats fearlessly feminine, but they’re recyclable, waterproof, and bacteria resistant to boot! Tons of ladies out there have been forced to dump perfectly pretty flats after being caught in a downpour (we shudder at the thought). But no amount of rain will ruin your day in these. Plus, they’re crafted right here in the United States-–how much prouder can a gal get?
ClaireaBella medium bikini jute bag ($69.99, toxicfox.com). Keep that brand new bikini crisp with a handmade water and sand proof bag. Be sure to stun in that sexy two piece by showing it a little TLC with this natural Jute fiber carrier. PS: They’re totally customizable, so feel free to choose your own skin, eye, hair color, and snazzy swimsuit.
Eco-chic hangtag pink and orange colorblocking ($21.95, leakeycollection.com). There is no shortage of reasons why I’m hooked on these hangtags. First, they’re eco-friendly and hand-crafted by men and women in Kenya. Second, they’re airy-light and won’t leave you scrambling to scoop up fallen beads after a few wears. Third, they’re unbelievably versatile and can be twisted and turned any which way to create the look you’re after. Wear it as lengthy necklace or do the twist and transform it into a bracelet or hairpiece. The options are endless!
2 strand silver triangle necklace ($27.50, acaciacreationsstore.com). Painstakingly constructed from recycled glass, this on trend necklace is available in six gorgeous hues. Eco-friendly and created following fair trade practices, you’ll look good while exercising your fashion conscience. Now that’s a fabulous style story!
