Sundance Film Festival starts today in Park City, Utah and we’re rounding up a few sustainable items we’d be happy to wear this week out and about in the snowy city between screenings. You’ll notice we don’t talk about fashion often, but when we do, it’s usually to support the growing number of brands who value sustainability as much as style.
The Sundance line-up this year is packed with star-studded films and new docs we can’t wait to see. Whether you’re headed to Utah this weekend or not, check out some of these useful and adorable cold-weather picks we love either made of natural materials, sourced responsibly, or that are making other efforts we love to keep fashion on it’s feet…
Clyde angora pinch hat | You can get away with wearing a hat just about anywhere these days, but no where is it more appropriate than in Park City over the next week. We love this gorgeous angora version in pale white. Handmade in New York by Clyde.
Heidi Merrick indicator dress | This gorgeous vegan leather sheath dress from L.A.’s Heidi Merrick is a great way to make a subtle nod to the Western festival location and it’s cause-related themes at the same time. Plus, it’s down right stunning.
Jenni Kayne wool cashmere fringe sweater | Packing a wool sweater for a week in Utah is practical. Adding a layer of fringe? Perfectly un-practical and absolutely adorable. The fringed overlap back on this wool sweater is the way to wear fringe this winter – and if you can’t rock fringe at Sundance, we’re not sure where you can.
This is Ground mod tablet | We’re obsessed with all thing This Is Ground here in L.A. These tablet organizers are as beautiful as they are functional and perfect for keeping your act together while on the road.
Everlane luxe sweater mockneck | Everlane is another line always in our green-loving closets. The brand’s extremely simple and high-quality aesthetic is addictive and the company’s policies are remarkably transparent. This light, but luxe mock turtleneck is ready for everything.
Reformation brixton coat | Reformation takes the lead on green, responsible fashion statements and this is one we’re ready to make ourselves. This faux fur deadstock material has an edge we love and wears well under a number of festival-ready circumstances.
Clare V. handbag | Every L.A. girl’s accessory staple, Clare V. handbags are made by local artisans here in our own city. This bag is comprised of two separate pouches – snap them together or apart and be prepped for day to night like nobody’s business.
These are not “sustainable”, the dress is a synthetic leather that will not biodegrade, the hat is sourced and dyed with what? Clare Vivier’s sourcing is questionable at best, what kind of dyes and finished were used on the leather, Chrome, polyurethane finishes? when you misuse the word sustainable you make it that much harder for people to actually achieve it. Do your research and actually promote sustainable brands instead of hip girl garbage.
