Sustainable Style
A month of eco-friendly fashion on The Frisky! Read More »

These days, it’s pretty cool to call yourself eco-friendly, and in the fashion world, that’s especially true. Lots of brands say they’re sustainable, but don’t actually have the environmental chops to back it up. Enter Naked Fashion, a book from author Safia Minney, with contributions from a slew of her famous friends, including designers Vivienne Westwood and Orla Kiely and actress Emma Watson. Minney and Co. give you the skinny on sustainability, covering everything from Fair Trade and the environment, styling and modeling, up-cycling and “slow” fashion, and even provide a directory of ethical brands and designers. After all, fashion and the environment impact everyone, especially women. As Watson explains, “I still find it hard to convey how much Fair Trade means to those producing our fashion – it’s just so impressive to see how the women have used Fair Trade to escape poverty and empower themselves and their children.” [$12.20, Amazon]

Meet Your New Super Cool Eco-Friendly Glasses

Even though geek-chic has been a colossal trend the past few years, we’re completely over thick plastic frames. We’re moving on to hipper wood frames by Sire’s Crown, which uses eco-friendly woods and plastics to make their eyeglasses and sunglasses.

It’s simple logic that eyeglasses should enhance, not detract, from your features, especially since you wear them all day, everyday. And Sire’s Crown has a frame to fit every face and lifestyle. We’re quite smitten with the Moorea frames, which are available in nine different woods and remind us of glasses Hyde would have worn on “That ’70s Show.” The Dylan Thomas frames are also available in a variety of woods and were inspired by the Welsh poet. These frames have a classic wayfarer vibe, so they’ll look chic on many faces. Sire’s Crown also produces glasses with eco-friendly plastic fronts for those that enjoy a bit of mixed media.
