Style USA: Alternative Apparel
Just like with last week’s Style USA profile, I’m pretty certain I first read about Alternative Apparel on Leah’s blog. She has really done her homework when it comes to ethical and sustainable fashion, and I trust her recommendations very much.
After my May clothing challenge ended, I bought a few new items for summer, and I found this wonderfully soft and comfortable tee at Alternative Apparel. I really like the modern, boxy cut and how effortless it is. If I pair it with jeans, I run the risk of looking too casual; but with my favorite A-line skirt from Fair Indigo, it’s very modern and minimal, which I really love. As I’m letting my hair return to its natural color, I’m drawn to simpler styles and colors. This tee is perfect for summer and really goes well with a relaxed silhouette.
Alternative Apparel is a company dedicated to producing goods ethically and sustainably, and though some of their products are made in other countries, they follow a strict set of guidelines to make sure their requirements are met. Alternative Apparel is open about their business practices, similar to the way Everlane is known for transparency, and I appreciate the fact that I don’t have to dig around online to find out where a product is made before I decide to buy it.
There’s a summer sale going on at Alternative Apparel right now, and it’s a great time to stock up on basics.
I really like the simplicity of this outfit and that necklace is really cool.
Thank you! It’s so comfortable, and the necklace is from Mata Traders. It was their free gift with purchase at Christmas.
That looks so comfortable, but really classy! I looked at a few Alternative Apparel dresses when I was pregnant – never pulled the trigger but they looked so soft.
Thank you! It’s very comfy. I don’t usually wear tees that are so unstructured, but I really like this look.
I love it! I think the soft grey color plays up the silver in your hair in a magical way 🙂
Why, thank you! 🙂
