Fair fashion Favourites summer '19
It’s been a while since I put together my first post about Fair Fashion Favourites. I have discovered heaps of amazing sustainable and ethical brands during the past few months.
Since summer is coming up for the majority of the planet and because I know that it can be difficult to find sustainable and ethical brands, I put together a little summer wish list.
While I’m sharing some beautiful clothing items with you, I don’t want to make you feel like you need any of them. This post is simply here to inspire you to consider ethical and sustainable fashion brands, next time you need something, and to prove that fair fashion can be beautiful!
I also want to support brands that care for the environment and the people that make our clothes. They really deserve so much credit.
You can find all the brands’ mission statements at the bottom.

Ethically and sustainably produced swimwear can be a little tricky to find and is most often a little pricier (definitely pricier than Missguided’s 1 £ bikini. A nightmare for the environment, the people who made those bikinis, and your closet.) – but the following swimwear is made from quality material that will last a long time.
Bags are always important, but I feel like they are extra important in summer since you always need to carry around your water bottle to stay hydrated, sunglasses, sunscreen and swimwear.
This gorgeous bag by FERRON is made from vegan leather. The elephant logo is not only an expression of the designer’s love for animals and support for an elephant orphanage in Kenya but also a statement against animal cruelty in fashion. £10 of every bag sold will support the efforts of Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
A summer staple that I can’t live without: a good blouse (or a blouse-like top). You can style it in so many different ways and if the material is nice and flowy, it won’t be too hot but perfect to protect your precious skin from the sun. I personally prefer white or nude coloured blouses because they are so easy to style, they’re classy and timeless.

VETTA is a really cool ethical brand that specialises in capsules. I was so amazed to see how many different looks you can create with only 5 clothing items! Serious fashion inspiration.
A cute summer top is a way to express yourself. In the mood for a relaxed day at the beach, a picnic or a stroll through the city? It all depends on the top.
And what would a summer wish list be without some summery dresses? I picked everything from picnic to beach day to dinner date.
A versatile dress, that could be worn to a dinner date, exploring beaches or strolling through cities while eating ice cream.
These are my favourite shorts and skirts from fair fashion brands.
I hope this little guide showed you how beautiful fair fashion can be. I would like to stress again that this is by no means meant to make you feel like you need any of these clothing items, but if you were on a hunt for something new to add to your summer closet, maybe you now consider some ethical and sustainable brands.
Thank you for reading!
