Sustainable Fashion for the New Year

Fashion trends are changing all the time, and if you want to look your best heading into the New Year, it’s important to dress with the times. However, now more than ever, there is a huge push for sustainable fashion brands.

You may be asking yourself, what is sustainable fashion? This is fashion that is environmentally-friendly and has been made using ethical materials. If we can stay stylish while also looking after the environment, it’s a win-win!

At Arlo Wolf, it is our mission to increase our sustainability. For that reason, we have put together this guide to show you a selection of sustainable fashion options out there and help you choose the best sustainable fashion for you, heading into the new year.

Eco-friendly clothing

Plant-based leather

Wearing leather has been a fashion staple for almost a century after the leather jacket was first introduced as a fashion garment in 1928. However, animal-based leather is slowly meeting its demise and plant-based leather is the new cool. The new plant-based options are much better for the environment and have come a long way in their appearance and durability.

There are a number of plant-based leather clothing and accessories available these days, including boots, belts, jackets, handbags and more. So, if black leather is the one for you, we recommend a pair of Forest Eco in Black to match which are part of the sustainable eyewear range at Arlo Wolf.

100% Lyocell floral skirts

Floral skirts seem to be in fashion all the time and are never outdated. If you are feeling the floral skirt vibe, we recommend that you source one that is made from 100% lyocell. The production of lyocell doesn’t use toxic chemicals, and almost all of the dissolving agents can be used repeatedly.

If you’re looking for a pair of glasses to go with your floral skirt, then look no further than our Phoenix Eco in Crystal, as these are sure to go with any floral skirt, no matter the design.

Organic cotton pants

Cotton is used in a lot of different pieces of clothing. However, organic cotton is definitely the way forward, as it uses no chemicals, fertilisers or pesticides to produce. It also uses less energy and produces less CO2 in comparison to regular cotton. There is a plethora of sustainable fashion brands that sell clothing made from organic cotton. We recommend purchasing a pair of organic cotton pants, in any colour you choose, to keep in touch with sustainability while staying on top of fashion trends. 

If you wear glasses, then why not go the extra mile to be sustainable by wearing eco-friendly glasses? Here at Arlo Wolf, we have a great range of eco-friendly glasses for you to check out.

Organic cotton and linen dungarees

Wearing dungarees certainly isn’t for everyone. However, dungarees are a fashion trend once again and can be worn by both men and women that want to make a statement in the world of fashion. There are great sustainable options when it comes to dungarees, as they can be made from organic cotton and linen, which use no chemicals, fertilisers or pesticides.

Forest Eco in Tortoise is a great pair of glasses that will look great with dungarees. These are sure to stand out and create a very interesting look, so why not go bold and spruce up your fashion heading into the new year?

Peace Silk tops

Silk is always a great option for clothing items, as it’s good for your skin. Peace Silk takes this further by using a humane type of sericulture that allows silkworms to live a natural life and eventually evolve into butterflies. Its production is verified under the World Fair Trade Organisation Guarantee System. This new year, there is a great selection of peace silk tops available online for you to purchase to stay on top of fashion.

If you choose a pink Peace Silk top, the Willow Eco in Pink Crystal is a great pair of glasses to go with it.

What is thrift shopping?

Thrift shopping is the act of buying used items from second hand stores. This avoids having to go through regular retail chains, which reduces your environmental footprint by reusing old clothes that were no longer wanted by their previous owner. Thrifting is also a great way to find interesting clothing items that you may not be able to find anywhere else.

Here at Arlo Wolf, we offer glasses reglazing, which involves replacing the lenses in your current frames. It is a very cost-effective way of upgrading your prescription. This can be done to any make or brand of glasses!

Simply fill out our contact form to let us know you’d like your glasses reglazed. From the time we receive your frames, you can expect to have them back within 7-10 working days, if all the information provided is correct.
