In case you needed a little extra push to buy that perfect silk dress for spring, we have some good news: according to Amanda Hearst’s Marie Claire column in the March issue, silk is considered extremely eco-friendly. This is because of the hard-working silk worms that create it (and the cocoons they emerge from to become moths. Google them — they’re actually kinda cute!). This means no chemical-based synthetic processing, which is necessary to make most of the materials used for clothing. Also, silk is a natural fiber that is renewable and biodegradable. So, there’s reasons #98731 and #98732 to buy and wear it.
Pretty sure that’s what we call a win-win. Feeling good? Time to buy your new favorite dress — check out the slideshow below for our favorite options.
