Whether you’re preparing for a holiday dinner with friends and family, a charity gala, a company get-together, or a New Year’s Eve cocktail party, you’ve come to the right place. We have an exceptional selection of sustainable and ethical special occasion dresses, unique artisan-made jewelry, and showstopping handcrafted shoes for all of those seasonal events (and more)!
We’ve created six sustainable outfit ideas using some of our favorite bold, sleek pieces to give you some inspiration for your holiday looks. Whether you’re attending a business-casual party or a formal black-tie affair, these outfits will be sure to wow.
1. Fair Trade Flapper Chic
What better way to ring in 2020 than with a look inspired by the Roaring Twenties? Symbology’s flapper dress with handcrafted silk tassels will be a fun piece to twirl the night away in, and these low heels from Coclico are both chic and comfy, making them fantastic shoes for tearing up the dance floor.
Jewelry: Minimalist Quill Earrings
2. Consciously Classy
This simple-yet-stunning ensemble is perfect for a family dinner, holiday party, or New Year’s Eve out on the town. Passion Lilie’s artisanal block printed wrap dress is a sophisticated piece that pairs beautifully with rounded toe flats or low heels and minimalistic jewelry.
3. Golden Age Glam
For another 1920s inspired look, we love Symbology’s modern take on art deco fashion with this beautifully printed maxi. Add dark red heels, like Coclico’s Joji Heels, and modern geometric jewelry, like these Abby Alley earrings, and you’re all set for a glamorous night out!
4. Sustainable Showstopper
This festive fair trade outfit features three uniquely handmade pieces: an artisan dress block-printed in India, timeless booties handmade in Spain, and an elegant ring crafted in Uganda. They are remarkable pieces by themselves — but together, they create a truly showstopping look.
Shoes: Coclico Whoop Bootie
Jewelry: Rose & Fitzgerald Shield Ring
5. The Life of the Party
If you’re looking for a fun look without any frills or sequins, this Milo + Nicki low-back dress is a great choice. The mini looks fabulous with mules or slides for warmer months and booties for the chillier ones. A good pair of studs will add just the right amount of shine to this look, no matter what season it is.
Jewelry: Lumafina Cast Studs
6. One-of-a-Kind Shine
Bring some sustainable shine to your holiday with Symbology’s hand-printed maxi skirt. Add additional sparkle to your look with Coclico’s bronze-hued artisan shoes and L.Greenwalt’s gold handcrafted hoops.
