28 May Our top 10 picks of affordable ethical clothing and accessories
It’s been an exciting time at Wearth, launching our new fashion range. We know that with previously limited options for affordable ethical clothing, this is big news for you too. All too often, we’re forced to believe that there is no such thing as cheap sustainable clothing. But as our eco and vegan fashion range shows, you really can have it all: absolutely fantastic fashion pieces, which are also ethically wonderful too.
Here we reveal our top 10 affordable ethical clothing and accessories choices, from our new selection.
1. Organic Cotton Breton Long Sleeve Top – £45.00
The Organic Cotton Breton Long Sleeve Top is perfect for the coming summer months. Don this with shorts, capris, skirts or jeans, and you instantly elevate any outfit into the realm of French chic.
This top isn’t just about unquestionable class. It’s also seriously comfy. It’s made from super-soft and stretchy organic cotton. Slightly heavier in weight than many tees, it’s perfect for those cooler British summer evenings. And we just love the coconut shell button detailing on the shoulder.
What’s more, because we love The Natural Edition pieces so much, we’ve got a 20% launch discount running on all of their items.
2. The Sky Linen Trouser – £45.00
From Before July, The Sky Linen Trouser proves that you can have affordable ethical clothing without breaking the bank. In fact, these trousers aren’t just fashionable, but they tell a wonderfully unique and ethical story.
When you order these trousers, they aren’t snatched from a warehouse and sent with little thought. Each pair is made to order in the UK. That means that they help to say goodbye to fast-fashion, with its wasteful approach and questionable ethics.
Perfect for the summer, in a delicately pale blue, we adore the sky bandeau tie front.
3. Origin Africa Organic Sleeveless Top – £22.50
No ethical wardrobe is complete without a simple but stylish white tee. Perfect for the summer months, this sleeveless t-shirt is made from 100% organic cotton and features subtle icons inspired by African tribal masks.
Even better, all of Origin’s profits fund African-based social enterprise projects. So you know that you’re contributing towards something great when you buy an Origin item of clothing.
4. Mea Vegan Raffia Clutch Bag – £34.99
From a casual evening at the pub, to dressing up to the nines, the Mea Vegan Raffic Clutch Bag by Ellyla is versatile and stylish.
Made from natural raffia leaves, we think the half-moon shape makes it perfect for both looking great and storing everything needed. It will work well with jeans or a floaty summer dress. Being minimalist, it lends itself to pretty much any occasion.
We also love the story behind this bag. Handcrafted in India using natural and vegan materials, Ellyla shows how there’s a fair balance to be found in fashion.
5. Kula Ethical Backpack – £35.00
The Kula Ethical Backpack, at just £29, does something remarkable. It’s unisex, without losing its stylishness for any gender, while also being impressively sustainable.
Made from a seriously tough FSC accredited paper material called Texon Vogue, combined with cotton, it’s sturdy and up to the job. Eminently practical for city-living and exploring. These bags are so brilliant that they are even approved by The Vegan Society, for being kind to the planet and animals too.
6. Vista Recycled Sunglasses – £30.00
Who said you can’t have sunglasses without compromising your values? The Vista Recycled Sunglasses take discarded plastics and recycle them into these impressive shades. Made by CHPO, they are a classically stylish black, made using 100% recycled plastic yet still deliver a UV 400 rating.
CHPO are really more about watches, but we think these unisex sunglasses are fabulous in terms of ethics and affordability. What’s more, they donate 100% of their profits to charity.
7. Organic T-Shirt – Sand – £30.00
This unisex Organic T-Shirt in Sand by Morcant is a steal at just £30. Made from 100% GOTS certified ringspun combed organic cotton, it is a light and breathable tee, yet looks great too.
Perfect for those who operate a capsule wardrobe; gents can pop it on with jeans for a casual look, or pair with a suit for something more formal.
8. CHPO Harold Betong Watch – £49.99
Effortlessly classy, this vegan leather watch features dark grey bezel, dark grey dial and a black leather strap. Designed in Sweden, it looks both stylish and smart. Made for everywhere, the watch can be worn for both casual and formal outings.
A unisex, cruelty-free watch that will bring sophistication to any outfit.
9. Organic Cotton T-Shirt Dress – £45.00
Every woman’s wardrobe needs a Little Black Dress (LBD), and this Organic Cotton T-Shirt Dress is perfect for the job. And at just £45.00, you cannot argue that it is value for money. Pair with some gorgeous jewellery and heels for a night out, or dress down with a scarf – a whole heap of choices which work whatever the season.
100% organic cotton, this LBD is designed to be an everyday essential, turned into an every luxury, as well as kind to both your skin and the environment.
10. Natural Rubber Flip Flops – £18.00
Waves have created these unisex Natural Rubber Flip Flops in four two-tone colour options. At just £18, they need to make a solid appearance in your summer casual wardrobe.
Made using eco-friendly natural rubber, you and your feet will fall in love with these. It’s not just because they look good, but they also mould to the shape of your foot – you can’t get more comfy than that!
In case you don’t know, natural rubber is 100% biodegradable and recyclable, and these flip flops are Fair Rubber certified, made ethically in Sri Lanka.
