A white lace sundress and easygoing wedges can make heads turn – to achieve the office going look just throw on a light jacket or a scarf. The pairing with a jacket can be just as relaxed and comfortable, but looks way more professional when meeting clients.

 Summer can be a challenging season to dress for many women. What is the right length for a dress? How little or How much skin to show?

This is because we reveal more about ourselves and our body than in any other season and have fewer layering tricks at our disposal to either cover up certain parts or create a nice silhouette.  But we can see these challenges as opportunities to explore fashion and create a new look by playing with scarves, jackets and colours.

Dressing for the Summer Evening? Try this Silk dress. If you believe in wearing ethical clothes this can be the dress for you. Silk material is excellent for the summer as the fabric breathes and can keep you cool on a sultry outdoor event. It is a bit more special than your day and work dress. But don’t keep your nice clothes just for parties you should wear your nice clothes as often as possible so I would suggest that you wear this silk dress to work and during the day too!

Summer is here to stay for a while – go out and invest in a dress and when you chose a dress make sure it can take you from day to evening and weekend in style and well-deserved confidence.

Ethical and Sustainable Fashion Shopping can be fun and good for the soul  but it is not always straightforward and simple as it requires some research. Before we get into serious research stuff – Let us focus on you First.

What are you passionate about? The environment? Small carbon footprint? Handmade Fabrics? Fair trade? Locally sourced materials? No child or slave labour?

What you care about and what you value is different for everyone else. It is not easy to check all the boxes that make a product Ethical and Sustainable but things can become simpler if we narrow down what your priorities are  and what is available to you.

It is important to know that the companies you are supporting and the clothes you are wearing did not harm the environment or people.

But lets not fool ourselves – the clothes themselves need to be attractive and something we want to wear. No matter how environmentally friendly they are if they don’t fit or the colour runs – we are not going to be happy with the! We need to find out –

What is most important attribute of an outfit for YOU.

These include:

  • price
  • durability
  • comfort
  • style
  • colour
  • material

Indigo dyed Fabric

Some of these may overlap. Before embarking on your shopping spree it is always a good idea to make a list of exactly what outfits you are looking for. Jeans, tops, dresses, work wear or party wear.

Online shopping can be the easiest and many brands have a transparent trail that will let you know exactly where the clothes were sourced, right from the material to the stitching. You can chose from the ones that share your values and ethics. Check out the brands mission and vision page.

In India we are specially lucky as we have an abundance of craft bazaars where we can buy handmade products directly from the producer groups.

In Delhi we have the Nature Bazaar at Andheria More and Dilli Haat at INA.  It is very cool experience talking  to the people who have made the products and are selling them right at your door step. You don’t need to travel to remote parts of the country to buy a Jamdani or a Chanderi. Often the crafts people are happy to collaborate with customers to produce one off custom made designs for a small fee. If the clothes you buy from crafts people don’t fit perfectly please get a tailor to alter it to your size. Our crafts people need us to make a living and when we buy from them we also give them valuable feedback so that they can improve their products and making them more contemporary and market friendly.

When looking for Ethical and Sustainable clothes do not be too hard on yourself remember every small step you take makes a big impact.

Dresses with high slits and cutaways make a perfect desk to date outfit.  If you decide to choose to go for a dress that is revealing, think about layering with a lace shift. This will add mystery to your look. The dress should make you feel amazing and give your date the impression that you have made an effort.

If your date has planned to take you to a concert or see a band – your outfit should be carefree and carry a pair of sensible shoes so that you can join the fun on the dance floor.
