Happy Monday! Today is part 4 of my summer 2017 capsule wardrobe challenge. Even though I only have two outfits left in this capsule wardrobe challenge, I can definitely continue creating new outfits. How are you doing in your capsule wardrobe challenge? Do you feel like you are lacking ideas? If so, I hope this post will encourage you to flex your creativity muscles and re-wear your old clothes more often!
Outfit No. 6 from Summer 2017 Capsule Wardrobe Challenge
How sustainable is Levi’s? Well, Levi’s is not a 100% sustainable fashion brand yet, but the classic denim brand has been proactive with their sustainability initiatives. In 2010, they launched the Better Cotton initiative to train farmers to use less harmful substances when growing cotton. As of 2017, Levi’s only uses 20% of the cotton that is qualified for Better Cotton, but they plan to purchase all their cotton from sustainable sources from 2026.
If you love Levi’s but want a more vintage cut, RE/DONE is a good option. RE/DONE is a repurposed denim brand, and they partner with Levi’s to bring back the old classic wardrobe staples in the vintage cut. Unfortunately, supporting sustainable fashion is not always cheap. A pair of RE/DONE denim costs around $200, but they are for sure classic and timeless.
Personally, I can’t tell the difference between Levi’s and RE/DONE, and I opt for Levi’s because the price is way more reasonable. Here are some side by side comparisons:
Outfit No.7 from Summer 2017 Capsule Wardrobe Challenge
In outfit No.7, I switched out the shorts from outfit No.6 and paired with jeans. This is such a simple way to mix and match, and yet the look and feel is drastically different. Here I am wearing 7 for All Mankind denim. 7 for All Mankind is one of my favorite denim brands because the way they fit and the material. They are made in the USA, and they also provide organic cotton options for those of you who want to support sustainable fashion.
If you are interested in getting an off-should top, I’ve provided some options here from sustainable fashion brands.
I hope you enjoy this blog post! If you are too doing a capsule wardrobe challenge this summer, be sure to leave me a comment or slide into my DM with your outfit photos on Instagram! I would love to see how you re-wear your old clothes!
Last but not least, if you have any sustainable fashion brands that you would like to know more about, please leave me the name, and I will try to research more.
Smile and style on!
