Many career women work in male-dominating environments . Sometimes they try to blend in hiding in strange looking suits and not so trendy shirts. However , many of these women started to educate themselves bit-by-bit how to dress-to-impress.
There is a movement among women who became interested in sustainability and eco-friendly lifestyle. From energy and water saving to urban agriculture and sustainable living ; those women found ways to look stylish and trendy, yet keep leading a sustainable lifestyle.
When it comes to eco-friendly fashion our team have identified six fashion trends that make looking good easy and sustainable. Whatever your style is, there is something satisfying yet interesting about being an eco-fashionista.
Trend (1) : Conscience-based Shopping
Fashionistas following this trend believe that buying fair-trade clothes helps the poor workers in developing countries sustain a decent life , creates better work environments, and supports independent cooperatives and trade unions in those countries.
Trend (2) : Vintage , Pre-loved, and Re-purposed Clothes
A handbag cut from an old pair of jeans, a dress transformed into a new wrap skirt, or an infinity scarf cut from an old t-shirt … those gals always try to re-purpose their old clothes , bring life to loved garments, ignite their creativity, and, of course, save their money while saving the planet.

These ladies go for organic airy fibers such as cotton or linen, which have not seen any harmful pesticides or fertilizers. Such fibers are lightweight, durable and comfy.
