Five jumpsuits

Hi folks! So, I debated whether to post this jumpsuit as I bought it at Target (quintessential fast fashion) and I am trying to cut back/eliminate my dependence on this type of clothing. I was even thinking of returning the jumpsuit, but I just fell in love with it the first time I put it on. It is so comfortable and easy to wear (and take off :)). The floral pattern is lively, while the off-the-shoulder silhouette is dramatic. I have been resisting the culotte trend because I was not sure how it would look on me, but I am pleased with the way this version of the trend looks. To accessorize this look, I added hoop earrings and blush slides.

I think one of the major reasons I want to get away from fast fashion is my tendency to cycle through clothes and disregard the value of each item. In this case, I feel that I will be wearing this jumpsuit for a long time so I think that counts for something.

To further cosmically offset my Target purchase, I am highlighting four ethical jumpsuit alternatives below. These picks come from three stores that are new to me. AmourVert (which means “Green Love” in French) has gorgeous pieces that are sustainably produced. Cleobella features bohemian clothing and accessories that are handmade in Bali with recycled materials. Finally, River Island offers pieces designed in-house and boasts an ethical mindset toward manufacturing as part of their “firm belief that business can be both profitable and responsible.” This UK company is huge, which immediately makes me skeptical about their practices, but I was impressed with what they had to say on their site about their relationships with their manufacturers and their commitment to working against modern slavery. Check out the jumpsuits below and let me know your thoughts in the comments 🙂
