How to Dress for Valentine’s Day the Eco Way

Valentine's Day is a special occasion to express love and affection towards our significant others. While we celebrate this day with joy and excitement, it's also important to consider the impact our choices have on the environment. Sustainable fashion offers a great opportunity to dress stylishly while minimising our environmental footprint, so we show love to both people and planet. 

In this journal entry, we will guide you through the process of choosing eco-friendly Valentine's Day outfits, from sustainable dresses and ethical skirts, to accessories that care for the ocean, so you can still celebrate in style, but in a sustainable way.

Why Choose Sustainable Fashion for Valentine's Day?

With the fashion industry being one of the biggest contributors to pollution and waste, it's crucial to make conscious choices when it comes to our clothing. Sustainable fashion focuses on reducing environmental impact by promoting ethical practices, using organic and recycled materials, and supporting fair trade. 

By choosing sustainable fashion, you not only contribute to a healthier planet but also support brands that prioritise the well-being of workers and communities. TWOTHIRDS is, of course, at the forefront of this movement, with our mission statement always having been to put the ocean’s wellbeing above all else.

Sustainable Fashion Options for Valentine's Day

When it comes to Valentine's Day, finding the perfect ethical look or outfit that aligns with your values can be exciting. Sustainable fashion offers a wide range of options to suit every style and preference. From eco dresses to ethical skirts, there are eco-friendly fashion alternatives that are both on-trend and ethical.

Eco-Friendly Valentine's Day Dresses and Skirts

For a romantic and feminine look, opt for a sustainable Valentine's Day dress. Look for ethical dresses made from organic cotton, linen or TENCEL™ Lyocell, which are eco-friendly materials that require less water and chemicals to produce. Choose dresses like the Pramuka that come in soft pastel shades or rich chilli hues, symbolising love and passion. Pair your sustainable dress with a statement necklace or a delicate bracelet to complete your look.

If dresses aren't your style, sustainable skirts are another great option. Look for ethical skirts like the Noto, made from the softest organic poplin. A flowy skirt paired with a fitted top and heels will create a truly chic and sustainable Valentine's Day look.

Styling Sustainable Outfits for Valentine's Day

Styling your sustainable Valentine's Day outfit is just as important as choosing the right clothes for your day-to-day routine. Opt for minimalist accessories that complement your look without overpowering it. 

Choose sustainably-made jewellery, such as earrings or rings crafted from recycled materials or ethically-sourced gemstones. A pair of comfortable and eco-friendly shoes, such as those made from vegan leather or recycled materials, will complete your sustainable Valentine's Day look.

Sustainable Options for Valentine's Day Underwear

Valentine's Day is also a time to celebrate intimacy and romance. When it comes to choosing eco underwear, opt for sustainable bra options that are both comfortable and eco-friendly. Look for sustainable underwear made from organic cotton or other natural and biodegradable materials. Such materials are not only better for the environment but also provide breathability and comfort. Choose sustainable lingerie in shades of red to stay in line with the Valentine's Day theme, or rebel, and simply wear whatever the hell you want!

Accessories to Complete Your Eco-Friendly Valentine's Day Look

Accessories play a crucial role in completing any eco outfit. When choosing accessories for your sustainable Valentine's Day look, consider opting for pieces made from recycled or upcycled materials. Look for bags made from recycled ocean plastic or for statement lightweight scarves crafted from low impact materials. These unique accessories will not only enhance your Valentine's Day outfit but also showcase your commitment to sustainability.

Where to Find Sustainable Valentine's Day Outfits

Finding sustainable Valentine's Day outfits is easier than ever, thanks to the growing demand for eco-friendly fashion. Many brands now offer sustainable clothing lines that cater to various styles and budgets. Look for brands like TWOTHIRDS that have always prioritised local manufacturing, sustainable materials, and transparent supply chains. 

Online platforms and marketplaces dedicated to sustainable fashion are also great resources for finding unique and eco-friendly Valentine's Day outfits. Also do not be shy to delve into thrift stores or second-hand clothing stores (online or offline), because not only will you find incredible discounts, you’ll also do your bit to keep the circular economy turning.

Eco-Friendly Alternatives to Traditional Valentine's Day Gifts

In addition to sustainable fashion, consider opting for eco-friendly alternatives to traditional Valentine's Day gifts. Instead of cut flowers, which contribute to deforestation and use harmful pesticides, choose potted plants or locally grown flowers. Instead of conventional chocolates wrapped in single-use plastic, opt for organic or fair-trade chocolates packaged in eco-friendly materials. These small changes can make a big difference in reducing waste and promoting sustainability.

Celebrate Valentine's Day in True Sustainable Style

This Valentine's Day, let's celebrate love not only for each other but also for the planet. By choosing sustainable fashion, from ethical dresses and eco skirts to ocean-friendly accessories and sustainable underwear, we can express our style while minimising our environmental footprint.

Let's make conscious choices that support ethical practices, promote fair trade, and protect the environment. Together, we can celebrate Valentine's Day in both a stylish and sustainable way 💙
