I’ve talked a lot about the reasons you should go green with your purchases in beauty and fashion so I thought it would be good to share some ethical holiday dress picks here on the blog to prove that eco and ethical fashion can be both beautiful AND affordable. There are several ways you can go about dressing ethically this holiday season. The first is by purchasing a used dress at either a thrift store or consignment shop. You can find some wonderful vintage dresses there or on etsy and both have some really affordable and beautiful holiday dress options which will be eco-friendly. If you want to abstain from purchasing anything which you don’t know the origin, the best way to go is with ethical holiday fashion picks from an etsy seller who hand makes their line of clothing or an online shop which specializes in selling only brands which craft their clothing from sustainable, local, and ethically traced sourced. They also tend to use earth-friendly materials, fight for a fair wage and fair trade when purchasing materials, and usually avoid using animal materials on the whole. Some of these can be on the more expensive side of things, but you may be surprised at how many of these options are either on-par with your regular holiday dress options or even cheaper, in some cases. I’ve gathered a few of my favorite ethically made holiday dresses you can wear this holiday season without a care ♥
Eco Chic and Ethical Holiday Dresses
This dress is both cozy and stylish! I love that this particular etsy seller uses soy and organic materials and makes them locally in the USA.
This dress is crafted and hand-sewn with old pieces to create something beautiful and one a kind!
Vintage is a great way to keep things stylish without creating more waste or contributing to any manufacturing or business practices you’d rather not be a part of. Asos has a line of beautiful vintage pieces they’ve reclaimed which are stunning pieces for the holidays!
Another Asos vintage dress, this gorgeous maxi dress has a beautiful star print in metallic silver and looks both comfy and cute!
Braintree Clothing makes a number of ethical fashion pieces and this shirt dress looks like a gorgeous classy dress pick, especially if you live in a colder area! One thing I really love about Braintree is they give exact percentages for their fabrics used (this one is 25% organic cotton) and they have details on their commitment to sustainability, fabrics, ethics and company beliefs.
Another vintage piece from Asos, this t-shirt dress combines casual with fancy sequin tassels! I love items that combine comfort and style so this is a favorite of mine!
This ballet dress is handmade in collaboration with Asos and Sika, a brand which handcrafts clothing in Ghana (Africa). They use all natural materials and methods, selecting fabrics found in local markets and helping the local community as well.
This gorgeous bodycon dress is a simple LBD with a stunning subtle design on it! The dress is handmade from remnant materials found in local fabric shops in Atlanta, Georgia, which helps support local businesses.
This gorgeous holiday dress is handmade from organic cotton and hemp using low-reactive dyes and water-based printing to create a gorgeous dress that’s made locally in Pennsylvania!
