So many of us find the new year a little bit daunting, it’s a chance to reinvent yourself and to show the world who you want to be for the year ahead. A lot of my audience tell me that the new year is when they make more conscious choices to be better, especially with regards to their fashion choices.
So for 2023, why not look to swap out that Zara purchase for a new brand that values sustainable practices? Here are a few of my favourites…
Aligne is one of my favourite smaller brands. They’re all about timeless, classic pieces that’ll be in your wardrobe for years. At present, 50% of the current collection is made from sustainably sourced fibres, but they’re on a journey to increase this and their goals for the future are to have more pieces in each collection that are 100% sustainably made.
This dress is a wardrobe staple for me: it’s a fairly new addition and I know I’ll wear it season after season as it’s such a classic.
With Nothing Underneath
WNU is another brand that champions classic styling. It’s a British female-founded label that specialises in menswear-inspired shirts, adapted for the modern woman and which are also sustainably made. They come in a varierty of luxe materials, styles and colours. What more is there to want?!
This classic Oxford shirt screams chic French woman and I am so here for it.
Lucy & Yak
You may have unknowingly spotted pieces by Lucy & Yak on your social feed. They’re an independent UK brand which makes handmade, sustainable clothing. While its dungarees are infamous, they make a whole host of everyday pieces that’ll elevate your wardrobe for the new season.
I love this set of overalls – the ease of just putting on one item and being ready to go is a huge bonus for me!
I. Love. Albaray. They create really lovely, great quality clothing, and ethical practices are a huge part of their production process. A lot of their collection is created using Tencel, Ecovero and deadstock fabrics which are all more sustainable options.
