Let’s face it: As much as we love a good party dress or sequin number, most of the clothes we have in our closets are reserved for the office. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make a statement at work. As we saw last year, fashion companies have become more conscious of the production of their clothes — and what better statement to make for 2019 than a commitment to ethical clothing?
Brands have incorporated ethics into their production with a focus on the environment, animals and laborers. Those focusing on the environment avoid chemicals in their clothes, recycle materials and use organic fiber. There are also cruelty-free brands that don’t use any animal products in their production and rely on alternative materials to avoid polluting waterways. Fair-trade companies make sure that workers, both domestically and in developing countries, receive fair wages.
These vegan, eco-friendly and/or fair-trade fashion companies are stylish, ethical and totally work appropriate.
