Spring Ethical Clothing Wishlist

Looking for some spring ethical clothing inspiration for your sustainable wardrobe? I’ve got you covered!

I’m trying to be on a buy nothing new (or secondhand) clothing diet right now.  However, I’m only human. And I can’t help but notice all the pretty clothes coming out right now from sustainable and ethical clothing retailers, as part of their spring ethical clothing ranges!  Retailers have definitely managed to kick the tie-die trance trousers reputation that eco-friendly and ethical fashion once had right into the past.

The Spring Ethical Clothing Lust List

I’ve put together my fantasy spring ethical clothing shopping list in case you’re looking for some ethical inspiration.  The good news is all pieces are £50 or under:

ethical clothes

Orla Kiely T-Shirt (£36) from People Tree*. I have a bit of a thing for Orla Kiely’s beautiful prints and I love her newest collaboration with People Tree.

Peter Pan T-Shirt (£45) from Bibico. This just looks so easy to wear, and great to dress up or down.

Bicycle Belle T-Shirt* (£25) from Howies. Isn’t this just the sweetest t-shirt?

Nomad Maya Jeans (£21.95) via Ethical Superstore*. I’ve featured these jeans before, but it was worth adding them again as they are currently on super sale in sizes 14 and above.

Mero Tote (£49) via Ethical Superstore*. This tote bag is currently out of stock but is back in 11 days if you’ve got your heart set on it.  It’s a bit of a multi-tasker too – it’s reversible (to red) when you want to change things up!

Leaf Print Dress (£39.90) from Thought Clothing*. I’m a sucker for a good print and this dress is pretty much perfect.  Wear with the Nomads cardigan below and you’re sorted!

Cardigan (£50) from Nomads*. If I was buying anything new right now it would definitely be this beauty.  Light enough to wear as a cardigan but with the look of a smart jacket, this would be perfect for my work/going out wardrobe.

3/4 Sleeve Merino Top (£45) from Finisterre*. Stylish and cosy, and most importantly ethically made and guaranteed to be non-mulesed.

Also, as I was putting this ethical spring clothing guide together it struck me that pretty much everything I’ve picked out is blue!  I’m not sure why I’m so drawn towards all things blue right now. Perhaps it’s the thought of blue skies ahead!

Ethical Outfit of the Day – Thought Clothing

Let me show you my ethical outfit of the day, featuring Thought Clothing

It’s been a tale of woe around here! I was ill for the most part of November and December with a really persistent chest infection. Very ill. The I can’t get out of bed, can’t even watch TV kind of ill. I, therefore, hadn’t managed to make any trips to our allotment in months.

Thankfully my partner and our friends that we co-own the allotment with have put in some hours and hard work. I’ve started to feel a little better, so it was really pleasant to take a stroll to our allotment on Sunday to get some fresh air and to see what’s changed there.

My Thought Clothing Ethical Outfit of the Day

While we were there the mid-winter light was so lovely. So much so that I cast off my coat and scarf for all of 30 seconds and we took some very quick photos of my new dress that Thought Clothing* kindly sent me to review.  Then I bundled back up again and went home to warm up over a steaming hot cup of hot chocolate!  No more lurgy for me, thanks very much!

I’m wearing the Kenzie Dress, which is beautifully soft and easy to wear.  It’s pretty much the style of dress which I love, from the shape to the cut, to the pattern. As such, I know I’ll be wearing this dress for years and years to come.  Since I got it, I’ve barely taken it off – I even wore it on Christmas Day!  All of Thought Clothing’s clothes are ethically produced and are one of the few ethical retailers to cater to both men and women.

If you’re in the market for some new ethical clothing then you might be interested to know that the Thought Clothing January sale has just started today, and the Kenzie dress is now 50% off – a snip at just £24.90!  Just saying…!

My boots came from eBay. I mentioned them in this early really early Moral Fibres post. I’d already had them a year at that point so they’re holding up really well!  My necklace came from Monsoon about 7 years ago.  What can I say, I like my clothes, shoes, and accessories to last!

Wondering about that willow fence?  Our neighbouring allotment holder grows and coppices his own willow, and weaved it all by hand.  It’s so beautiful!

We’re still in the clearing and planning stage of our allotment. This is one of our neighbour’s allotments.  We’ll get to that stage soon: I’m really looking forward to sharing our progress with you all!

Disclosure: Thought Clothing sent me a dress to review, but all words and opinions are my own.
