Wearing Eco-Friendly Looks To Your Holiday Party This Year Can Be A Gift To The Planet

Hey Earth, happy holidays!

With holiday season upon us, you are probably getting ready to plan or attend all those fun parties with friends, co-workers, family, or all of the above. But aside from the obvious Christmas sweater, it can be hard to choose what to wear to all those events. 

We're here to help you narrow the choices by pointing out four stunning looks from environmentally conscious brands that are working to give back to the Earth through sustainable, eco-friendly practices. And since the fashion industry is the second biggest polluter in the world, consider choosing one of these outfits for a holiday party as your gift to the planet.  

So whether you're in the market for a skirt, the perfect dress, or something silky, choose from one (or more) of the pieces below and feel free to strike up a conversation about how fashion can look and do good, too. 



The perfect dresses

These Reformation show-stoppers are perfect for any holiday celebration — and, quite frankly, any celebration thereafter. 

Plus, Reformation sources "sustainable fabrics and vintage garments while incorporating better practices throughout our supply chain to make beautiful styles at a fraction of the environmental impact of conventional fashion." 

For example, their Toluca dress "used 3177 gallons of water, compared to the industry standard of 6355 gallons," among other benefits.

Your go-to skirts

People Tree aims to be 100 percent Fair Trade throughout it's supply chain, and purchases their Fair Trade products "from marginalized producer groups in the developing world." According to their website, they  guarantee the majority of all their purchasing "is Fair Trade and is committed to the World Fair Trade Organization Fair Trade standards."

Here are two of their gorgeous party skirts you can pair with a blouse, a blazer, a tee, or whatever you feel most comfortable in.

Comfortable knitwear

If your holiday party is more on the casual side, try pairing a trouser or jean bottom with a warm, knitted sweater. Plus, you can always dress it up if the occasion calls for it by adding some sparkly jewelry, leather bottoms, and a pretty pair of heels. 

We've chosen these two jumpers from Oneon, a brand sold within ASOS' eco-edit section. "ASOS is committed to reducing our impact on the planet," ASOS explains. "By working with eco-friendly brands and global initiatives, we've put together an edit of clothing, accessories and beauty products that fit within our criteria for sustainability."



A silky shirt

Silk is the perfect fabric to rock around the holidays; it's effortlessly chic, comfortable, and looks incredibly elegant.

We've chosen three silky tops from Everlane, a brand that Fashionista explains has advocated "supply chain transparency and sustainable fabrics."  These looks can easily be worn throughout the seasons, making them both perfect for the holidays and a go-to wardrobe staple.
