EARTH DAY CHIC

(Originally posted on Wordpress on Apr 22, 2016)

Happy Friday from the Silkstaq crew! We’ve officially managed to make it to the weekend: woo. It’s also Earth Day today, so we put together a post with a few down to Earth looks worthy of your weekend brunch or picnic. Tell us which one you like best on Twitter at @silkstaq! 

For the rocker gal: we put together a pair of classic ripped denim jeans with a pair of retro aviators and a black top. Best part about this simple look? You can make it yourself for under $60, no joke. Head to Forever 21 or H&M, pick up a pair of jeans and a top, put on your favorite thrifted rings and bag, and voila! You’ve got a look in under 20 minutes for under $60.  Or, to seriously embrace protecting the Earth, head to Buffalo Exchange or Goodwill and get the look for less. You’d be surprised at how many thrift shops offer items that people donated that are insanely cheap yet high-end. Vintage denim is on trend this season, and a fantastic way to reduce the demand for overproduction.

For the boho girl: are you a suede fan? We totally are here at Silkstaq. Suede is coming in and out of style quite quickly, so we’re picking up our favorite items while they’re in style! Stella McCartney is one of the only designers who uses strictly vegan materials, which means she’s an Earth Day friendly designer to follow.

Back at it again with the aviators! Black moto boots, aviators and a denim jacket is a classic look that never goes out of style. Plus, you can rock it at a summer concert, or, a weekend picnic. The bag above is by Matt & Nat, a vegan brand with a strong eco-conscious message. Celebrate Earth Day by voting with your dollars for style that’s kind to the planet we live on! Get ready to get down in the dirt this Earth Day: we totally are.
