In both the fast and slow lanes of fashion, spring 2023 is shaping up to be a season of calm comfort. Responding to the turbulence of our times, designers are creating garments that embody understated elegance. That’s true of our designers too. But TWOTHIRDS creates sustainable spring fashion trends, ensuring that styles align with our goals of low water use, high quality, and reduced environmental footprint.
Our list of sustainable spring fashion trends rides the waves of our current stock, and looks ahead to the launch of the Early Spring collection.
Top 10 Sustainable Spring Fashion Trends
1. Jeans / White top / Overshirt.
Simple though it may be, this is more or less the look of the season. Seek the comfort of denim this Spring, by getting the most from TWOTHIRDS’ sustainable approach. If looking to embody the now-popular Y2K outfit style, opt for the Kiritibiti, a figure-friendly pair of jeans that feature a slouchy fit. They are decolourised with an innovative “e-flow effect” that generates zero water waste and avoids the contamination denim is infamous for.
For the full sustainable spring fashion look, pair it with our simplest white tee, the 100% organic Eubea, and throw on a lovely overshirt from our back catalogue. For example: the Kril women’s organic overshirt comes in a sumptuous hot chocolate colour, while the Snape is partly crafted from Seaqual® - a recycled polyester fibre that contains 10% plastics that have been rescued from the ocean. A sustainable spring fashion trend with lots of possibilities.
Our next sustainable spring fashion trend embodies the explosion of colour that makes spring such a joyful time of the year. Vibrant floral prints made with sustainable fibres that will give your wardrobe a breath of fresh air.
Popular prints from our new collection include a sultry mix of black, red, and ochre and a “bouquet” of brighter blues and yellows. Cute, feminine, and very much in this Spring.
3. Funky Sleeves.
We had a lot of fun with sleeves for our Early Spring collection. Frilly, gathered, flared: you name it, we’ve got it! These loose-fitting designs are perfect for the warmer weather, and look dazzling too.
Rotuma embodies this sustainable spring fashion trend, with a touch of the floral trend too. Featuring a subtle print and lightly gathered sleeves, it’s elegant, eco, and effortlessly stylish.
4. White Organic/Recycled Cotton.
“Nothing says springtime like white cotton,” claims Who What Wear. They neglect to mention that cotton, grown with pesticides and fertilisers, can be damaging to the environment. Better to stick to organic and recycled cotton for this sustainable spring fashion trend!
Which styles would we recommend? Check out the super fresh Starbuck shirt, or the flowy springtime Quirra.
5. Bright Multi-Colour Knits.
Want to liven up your spring wardrobe? We’ve got just the thing. As thetrendspotter has noted, “this season it’s all about bright colours and fun patterns, celebrating loud hues and vibrant prints.” Sustainable knits are one of our specialities, so we’re more than happy to indulge you in this. Expect recycled wool, bright colours and timeless, comfy cuts.
6. The Springtime Blues.
Our favourite colour this Spring is far and away Cobalt Blue. You’ll find it in our Iona dress or our Mururoa wavy top. We wore it to Morocco, where this vivid shade of blue really stood out against the country’s beautiful sandy landscapes.
A sustainable Spring fashion trend that’s designed to give added bounce to your wardrobe, we think cobalt blue is here to stay.
7. Matching Prints.
It’s time to complete the set. Why stick to only one print garment this spring when you can pair up both top and bottom for a streamlined look that keeps your life easy? Fashionable, feisty and fully sustainable (at TWOTHIRDS…), matching prints can really make your outfits stand out. Complements? Guaranteed.
To create this sustainable spring fashion trend pop, consult our tops, bottoms, dresses and accessories.
8. Trouser Triumph.
2022 may have been the year of the tiger, but 2023 is “the year of the trouser”, a sustainable trend we’ll see extending into Spring. Wide-leg and straight-leg trousers are on Who What Wear’s radar, which tells us that the general trend is erring towards a smarter look. Try on the gorgeous Haruku, made from sustainable TENCEL™ Lyocell that feels extra soft on skin. They come with smart pleats and fall to the ankle for a breezier fit.
For a more relaxed sustainable spring trouser trend, try out our 100% linen cargo pants, the Bacalar.
9. Skirt Season.
Our forthcoming collection features no fewer than 3 different sustainable skirts. Each of these will be made from LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose, a botanic fibre that offers vegan versatility! In line with current sustainable fashion trends, they have been designed with some interesting cuts, or our classic button-up design. Watch this space!
