Shapes & Shadows – Eco Collection

posted in: Fashion Picks | 0

A collection of geometric prints, unique shapes, cut-out details, and high contrast, neutral color combinations. While this group of sustainable summer picks does follow some current trends (and I definitely don’t promote trend-driven shopping!), I chose these pieces because they are all very wearable, transitional, and versatile. Neutrals like black, white, and beige easily integrate into your wardrobe, adding stylish eco-friendly elements to your current outfits.
