If you think making eco conscious fashion choices are reserved for hippie sandals and hemp necklaces, think again. In the past five years, green fashion has gotten a major style upgrade thanks to a lot of mainstream designers getting on the eco bandwagon. Luxurious cotton fabrics can now be found in organic weaves that were originally grown without the use of toxic chemicals and vegan leather goods, such as shoes, leggings, and jewelry, are now considered on-trend thanks to their upgrade in chic design. With these affordable sustainable pieces, green really is the new black.
