Eco-Friendly Fashion

Great finds for your inner green goddess.

organic cotton jeans

Found: the perfect worn-in jeans. The Joselina vintage California jean by 7 For All Mankind is made from 98 percent organic cotton.  The relaxed skinny jean just needs a striped sailor tee and a pair of espadrilles to give it a spring 2010 update. ($198, bergdorfgoodman.com)

Recycled Materials
Did you know that if each person in the world bought one recycled garment every year, it would save an average of 371 million gallons of water and 480 tons of chemical dyestuffs! 

recycled material shorts

 These sassy high-waist shorts by Urban Renewal are fab with or without tights. They’re hand-made from recycled vintage materials. Wear them with a white tank and black cardigan for a Katy Perry-inspired ensemble. ($48, urbanoutfitters.com)

recycled material jacket

Swap your go-to cardigan for this recycled white jacket with an edgy fold-over lapel by Re Collection. Throw it over your favorite floral sundress, or layer it over a sexy tee and skinny jeans for a rocker twist.  ($139, shopbop.com)

recycled material t-shirt

The runway gets a recycled makeover with this glam top from top designer Tory Burch. The best part? The chain necklace print saves you some serious accessorizing effort. ($165, nordstrom.com)

    I really like that pink hemp dress, and at $49, it’s on the cheaper end. But, I’ve never worn hemp… is it itchy or uncomfortable? Or can you not tell?

    is this gonna be like organic food? it’s cool now but in a few years we’ll find out it really isn’t better for us that “normal” clothes?
