Top Ten ethical fashion pieces for Generation Z
When you first start looking at ethical fashion, it can seem like its all grey tunics and colourful shawls. Not that there is anything wrong with tunics or shawls... just as a 16 year old, thats not really what I want to be wearing. I live in black, as you would probably work out from my collection, and like things tight and edgy. Believe it or not, there are a few options for the conscious millennial or generation Z, 'cause the world of sustainable fashion has caught up with the rest of us. Check out my top 10 picks below....
#1. Of course, I pick my absolute fave, the Hera Bodysuit. Its just gorgeous, with such a dramatic back. Its literally the diva of bodysuits. It could be worn anywhere, but really looks more at home out on the town then it does buying three tubs of ice cream in trackies and ugg boots. But, your call. Its also, really comfy, made from GOTS (= organic) cotton, with a bit of elastane so its stretchy. Put your name on the waiting list now!
#2. This unique two piece (very unique, only one in stock!), is the quintessential, I try, but not too hard. Just the right amount of effort, to perfect the breezy summer look, but without all the coconuts and paisley florals. Classic yet you haven't seen it before. Did I mention its made from deadstock vintage materials? Get it now, from ModerNation.
#3. Yes, this is an ethically made glittery turtleneck. Yes its green. Yes, those are real sparkles. Made from deadstock materials by Dolores Haze. If I have to say anything more than thats its a glittery turtleneck, then quite frankly, you are a disappointment to fashion. Find it here.
#4. Its been decided.You are only a true aussie if you have underwear with an iconic aussie animal on it. Doesn't necessarily have to be Naja's cheeky Koala kickers, but where else will you get a Peruvian cotton underwear, the making of which supports disadvantaged and single mum workers? Shop these cuties right here.
#5. Nothing says I'm a lioness making those $$$ whilst also saying 😻😻😻 like a velvet two piece set. Made from deadstock, each purchase stops 4 pieces of clothing from going to landfill. So go ahead, and feel luxurious, because you can't feel second rate in velvet (its impossible), and this set puts a killer twist traditional velvet. YSTR are selling it here.
#6. This is just the cutest denim skirt around, isn't it. Really versatile, and will go with anything. An absolute staple in any sensible gal's wardrobe. Better yet, do you see those pockets? Yeah, you can actually put stuff in them. Like real pockets. If thats not a reason to head over here, I don't know what is.
#7. This is what you get when transparent business practices meets transparent fashion.... nothing about this dress is average. Its 100% vegan, made in fair labor factory in Slovakia, and its makers, Earthling, ensure that all its products are either GOTS or OEKO-TEX certified. This dress punches above its weight on so many levels, and I am in love with this company's clothes, they are just drop dead gorgeous. So check out all of their stuff on their website.
#8. Another homegrown Aussie brand like AntiVice! Elle Evans is exactly what you would get if you bottled an Australian summer into one swimmers (and now clothing and active wear) brand. I don't I have ever been so disappointed then when I eventually grew out of my first pair of Elle Evans bathers. But, have you seen their latest collection? I'm not sure I would ever take it off from December - February. It's swimmable, it's cafe date-able and its festival ready. What more could a girl want? Get it now!!
#9. Its got ruffles. Its got a low neckline. Its got your name (and my name) written all over it. This dress is daring but it makes the cut. Everything about it screams ME ME ME, so what better way that the slay the haters of this me-generation than to make them look at you. Oh I'm sorry.... clearly its not just me thats want to pay myself attention! Is that too petty.... you can decide but either way, its over here waiting for you.
#10. Last but sure as hell not least, is this velvet bodysuit. I won't lie to you, these girls at Hot as Hell know their stuff, and some of their designs make me faint with envy. Nothing about this look is casual, and nothing about it says meek or mild. This is a piece for the ages. You just have it - so grab it now from their website.
Can you believe that all of those were vegan and sustainable? So don't listen to the haters, in the words of Taylor Swift, they can call it what they want to, but ethical fashion is definitely here to stay, and its staying in style 😉
