Eco Fashion Chic: Try An Eco Bikini Made in NYC

Hmm. Halfway through Summer 2016 and time to add a new swimsuit. Try adding a new eco bikini made of eco-friendly 78% Recycled Nylon and 22% Elastane. Wrap top is not only flattering, it is also easily adjustable. Bottom is ruched in back. Top is $88 and bottom is $72. For these and other eco swimwear choices shop Vaute, an eco brand made in the USA/ cut and sewn in NYC's garment district. The brand has also been hailed as the first vegan fashion label.

Mid-Summer Dreaming? Wake up to an Eco Fashion Chic Romper

As we pass the halfway mark this summer what better than an eco-friendly, season spanning romper by Ace & Jig to add to your growing eco closet. Designed using one of the company's eco Artisanal fabrics that are woven on an ancient hand loom in India, this one is a classic windowpane plaid. The romper features a sleeveless, button-up front with elasticized waistband and tapered leg.

The weavers employed by Ace & Jig's textile factory receive free childcare. The textiles are washed twice to make the fabrics extra soft and shrink-proof, but the water used in the process is recycled for use in the communal employee garden to grow organic produce. Available online at Ethica; now reduced to $198.
