WINTER WOOLLIES: Add a pop of pink to your January blues

on in Fashion

Because looking good and keeping warm doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

Neon Pink Jumpers

We might be out of December but it’s still a wee bit nippy outside! And instead of cranking up your heating and putting the strain on your pocket (and the planet) why not chuck on a cosy printed jumper instead?

Jenny T – our Lookbooker of the week – looked show-stopping in this neon pink jumper (pictured above), which is just what we need to get over the post-holiday blues. We love her style, so we’ve found some vintage and eco alternatives so you can get her look…

Winter Fashion Look

Snuggle up in style in this FAIR+true Neon Pink Sweater (above left). This lovely fisherman’s knit can be worn as a short dress over leggings or folded under as a jumper. And because it’s made by FAIR+true, you can rest assured that this item is fair trade and made with the planet in mind.

We love these Mudd & Water Shake a Leg Leggings from Fashion Conscience (above right). These gorgeously soft organic cotton leggings are a must-have for any wardrobe. Mudd & Water are a UK based label making ethical, organic and sustainable fashion clothing. They try to work with fair trade and organic and sustainable fabrics where possible and work hard on constantly improving their sustainable, ethical production practices.

Finish your look with a pair of Gato Ebony Polarised Sunglasses from Proof (above centre). These lovely glasses have an over sized cat eye style frame, and are perfect for the girl who loves big glasses. The Gato is handcrafted and assembled using sustainably sourced wood too so you know you’re doing your bit for the planet.

And here’s a really lovely little video to cheer you up…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/
Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
